Knowing what to do after a car crash is half the battle

The roadways in and around Pittsburgh are well known for being among the busiest in the entire country. It doesn't matter if you're traveling on the parkway or one of the many hills that surround the city, you know that there are always other vehicles in close proximity.

How does one prove negligence in a medical malpractice case?

Medical providers and medical staff strive to do their very best in every situation that involves a patient. Whether diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation or something in between, there are a lot of moving parts and experiences that a person may have with medical care. Generally, things go according to plan when a patient comes in contact with medical care. For those who believe they were injured in a medical-related incident, how does one prove negligence and fault?

Olympus scopes lawsuit, injuries due to product design defect

With technology continually revolutionizing the way the world operates and the things we are able to do, sometimes it's hard to keep up. As discussed previously, technology affects every industry, including the medical industry. Mostly, technology does move the industry forward and allows hospitals, staff and related third-parties to provide a better quality care experience. However, sometimes well-intentioned technological advances can have the opposite effect.

Improperly managed pregnancy puts mom, baby at risk of injury

When you are expecting a little one, it changes everything. Whether this is your first child, or your second or third, each pregnancy is different and will require different things and will also present different challenges. Many parents will tell you that their first child's pregnancy was infinitely different from their second child's pregnancy, and so on. This is why it is important for parents to be aware of the necessary care when expecting a child.

Potential parties to sue after suffering surgical accidents

When a person makes the decision to go under the knife, it is usually after being assessed and diagnosed with an injury or ailment. Surgery is usually ordered as a precautionary treatment or as a remedy for those suffering from an illness or injury to either cure or help with their symptoms. Surgery isn't always ordered as a treatment option by a medical professional, but in instances of surgery there is always a risk, sometimes slight to moderate, of further injury or complications in connection with the surgical accidents.

How does one determine if medical standard of care was met?

There is a reason we seek the help of professionals when it comes to our health. It's because they are experts that are trained to give medical advice, recommend treatment plans or medication and even operate, if necessary. We trust health care providers because they are trained to provide health care solutions for us and loved ones. But, what happens when a healthcare provider, like a doctor, fails to meet a standard of care and that causes personal injury?

You've heard of wrongful death: What about wrongful birth?

$6 million lawsuit claims poor treatment resulted in stroke

Certain hospitals and medical care facilities specialize in certain areas of treatment. For example, there are hospitals specializing in medical disciplines throughout Pennsylvania. Some of these specialties include children, cancer centers and burn centers. One Pennsylvania hospital, which advertises itself as a facility for high-level stroke treatment, is under suspicion due to a lawsuit. The lawsuit alleged that the hospital failed to give a patient an MRI despite a neurologist's recommendation when she came to the emergency room in October 2016.

Failure to read doctor handwriting properly can result in injury

We have all heard the joke that poor handwriting could be an indication that a person could or should be a doctor. Poor handwriting has often been associated with doctors both recently and doctors of the past. When doctors would write a prescription, or medical notes, they often would, and some still do, write physically rather than enter it digitally into a computer. However, computers may be a better option for some doctors as a miscommunication related to their handwriting can result in medical malpractice.

Pseudomonas: A common but deadly bacteria

Patients in hospitals don't go to seek help in the hope that their condition will worsen while they are there. They are obviously seeking to have their conditions treated or managed. Unfortunately, there are some issues that are present in hospitals that can attack unsuspecting patients.
