Delaware’s Injury And Medical Malpractice Leaders

November 2016 Archives

Were baby's brain injuries caused by medical negligence?

When a Delaware woman is expecting a child, any change in her health or the movement of the baby might cause panic. Many obstetricians' offices more than likely field questions daily from pregnant mothers who are unsure whether what they are feeling, or are not feeling, could mean a problem with the baby. Not every concern should require a visit to the hospital, but if some issues are not investigated, the baby could end up with brain injuries or some other lifelong malady. There is sometimes a fine line between an overreacting mother and medical negligence when medical personnel ignore complaints and concerns.

Victims of car accidents have rights under Delaware law

Like many other Delaware residents, you were driving along, minding your own business and following the rules of the road when another driver made a mistake and crashed into your car. If you suffered serious injuries, you are more than likely racking up medical bills, losing income and sustaining other financial damages as a result. Fortunately, victims of car accidents have rights under Delaware law.

Woman claims surgical errors deformed her breast

Each year, numerous women here in Delaware and across the country undergo breast augmentation. One of the lasting cosmetic issues from the procedure is scarring, but there is a procedure that can be done to help minimize it. As with any procedure, however, surgical errors can occur, and some women find themselves in worse shape than they were prior to the procedure.

Woman blames brain injuries on failure to diagnose

Many Delaware residents suffer from severe headaches and migraines without any underlying brain issues. However, sometimes, those headaches are an indication of a larger problem. If a doctor fails to take the appropriate steps to ensure that a proper diagnosis is made, permanent brain injuries can occur. This is what one out-of-state woman said happened to her.

Should a text sender be held liable for an accident?

5 common types of medical malpractice

As much trust as we place in our doctors, they are human too. Even in the realm of medicine and treatment, mistakes happen and the consequences can significantly impact a patient's life. Luckily, it is possible to be compensated for medical malpractice if this happens.

Colder weather in Delaware means deer and car accidents likely

Fall in Delaware can be a beautiful time. The leaves are changing, the air is getting crisper, and the holidays are just around the corner. Unfortunately, there might also be a deer around the corner, and if motorists are not paying attention and remaining aware of this largely seasonal danger, car accidents are sure to follow.

Permanent brain injuries can result from cerebral hypoxia

Without oxygen, damage will be done to the body. The brain could suffer the most harm if a Delaware resident is denied oxygen for an extended period. Permanent brain injuries can result from a condition called cerebral hypoxia, which in the simplest terms means that the brain is not getting the oxygen it needs.

You have rights when your child suffers birth injuries

Nearly all parents in Delaware want to give their children the opportunity to grow up happy and healthy. When medical mistakes during the delivery rob you and your child of that chance, it can be devastating. Fortunately, you have rights when it comes to seeking restitution for the birth injuries your child suffered.
