Birth Injuries and Cerebral Palsy

Despite extensive access to prenatal care and a level of medical technology undreamed of in previous generations, almost 5% of the children born in the United States suffer from birth defects. Some of these children - those with minor injuries - may recover quickly and completely, but others are subject to a lifetime of disability. Unfortunately, the negligent and avoidable errors of doctors, hospitals and nursing staff during the birthing process can cause such injuries, such as cerebral palsy.

Uterine cancer

Cancer of the uterus is the fourth most common cancer in women. Approximately 41,000 cases of uterine cancer are diagnosed annually. Nevertheless, uterine cancer is the eighth most common cause of cancer deaths because it is generally diagnosed early. (Approximately 7,300 women die annually from uterine cancer. By way of comparison, ovarian cancer is annually diagnosed approximately 22,000 times with over 16,000 deaths). Thus, as with many other cancers, an early diagnosis of uterine cancer is crucial.

Study finds that most medical malpractice involving a delay in diagnosis results from basic errors

Physicians often commit medical malpractice when they fail to diagnose a disease or other condition in a timely fashion. A study recently published in the Annals of Internal Medicine concluded that in a vast majority of the cases studied, medical malpractice was caused by errors as basic as failing to obtain an adequate medical history or perform an adequate physical examination.
