Preventable birth injury could be overlooked in hospital error

With the advances in the medical field in the 21st century, illnesses and injuries are becoming more treatable and thus earlier diagnosed, with many diseases leaving less impact on those they adversely affect. However, technology and the medical field has become so advanced that patients are reliant on doctors and other medical professionals to make the correct suggestions for care. For mothers and their unborn children, this is an important time with health and the ability to be cared for correctly. Sadly, some mothers and unborn children experience a preventable birth injury due to hospital error.

Dosage mistake by medical professional could be due to negligence

Have you ever read the instructions on a medical prescription? Prescriptions can be prescribed by a doctor for a variety of medical conditions and symptoms.

What are the upsides of a structured settlement?

When you or a loved one has been injured, the immediate thought is getting the injured person back to good health. This is entirely normal, but after the person's health has stabilized enough to worry about other facets of life, financial responsibilities often start to set in and people wonder about how to pay the bills. When another party is believed to be responsible, it may be worthwhile to seek damages for their involvement in causing or contributing to a person's injury.

Regular check ups are recommended by people and medical professionals alike. Regularly checking the status of a person's health is the best way to catch an illness early and, thus, make it more treatable.

Can you run out of time to file a medical malpractice suit?

No one wants to be involved in a lawsuit. Whether you or a loved one was injured in a car accident, work accident or while under the care of a medical provider, no one wants that kind of trouble.

Making the decision to admit a loved one to a nursing home due to age or health-related issues includes many variables and isn't a decision made overnight.

How is misdiagnosis different from failure to diagnose?
