Delaware’s Injury And Medical Malpractice Leaders

Delaware car accidents: Drugs a factor in recent crash

Although Delaware residents can adhere to all traffic laws and drive responsibly, they still may become a victim in a collision. Unfortunately, car accidents can occur as a result of negligence and recklessness of another person. Recently, a fatal accident occurred that may have involved someone driving under the influence of drugs.

Man suffers brain injuries by unsecured beverage cart on plane

Some Delaware residents may fear flying in an airplane for many reasons. Being injured by a beverage cart likely is not one of them. Unfortunately for a man in another state, he suffered serious brain injuries after being struck in the head by a runaway beverage cart while the American Airlines plane was ascending into the air. He has filed a lawsuit in civil court requesting $10 million in physical and emotional damages.

Family awarded $2.3 million re baby's brain injuries

Most Delaware parents experience a myriad of emotions as they anticipate the birth of a child. Some of those parents may experience more fear and worry regarding their child's well-being when they are prematurely born. A premature birth can result in multiple health conditions, additional medical treatment and expenses. Any medical mistake on a fragile premature baby could result in unnecessary physical harm, brain injuries or even death. Recently, a family in another state was awarded a $2.3 million settlement for the injury of their baby that they asserted was caused by hospital staff negligence.

What if the person who hit you is someone you value?

Being hit by a car can lead to untold hours of physical, emotional and financial struggle. Sometimes, it seems that you have no other choice but to sue the person who hit you and/or the person’s insurance company. But what if the person who hit you is someone you value? After all, most car accidents happen relatively close to home. So, it is possible that your favorite neighbor or the person who babysat you 10 years ago may have hit you.

Effects of brain injuries in childhood may last years

Attempting to justify care or therapy for an injury years after healing has occurred may be difficult for some Delaware residents. That difficulty may occur for many young adults who suffered traumatic brain injuries as a child. It has long been believed by medical professionals that once a child's brain injury healed, that children would not likely suffer any long-term effects. A recent study performed in another country has produced data that challenges the current medical thinking. 

Family awarded $15 million for birth injuries

It is well known in Delaware and in other states that many medications can harm an unborn child if taken while a woman is pregnant. Unfortunately, some medications are still prescribed to pregnant mothers that can harm unborn children and may result in birth injuries. One family in another state has been awarded $15 million by a jury for the physical defect her son suffered that may have resulted from the drug Depakote.

Surgical errors may have contributed to woman's death

Medical mistakes can happen to any patient in Delaware. It is unfortunate when mistakes happen that potentially could have been prevented. Recently in another state, a female died after unknown possible surgical errors occurred during her cosmetic procedure.

Patients may suffer the effects of brain injuries for years

Car accidents, falls, on-the-job accidents and sports injuries can all result in head trauma for Delaware patients. One recent study of war veterans has helped researchers understand the complexity that brain injuries may cause in people. Previously, it was believed that once the injury healed, patients would no longer suffer effects of the injury. The study instead has revealed that effects can linger for years after the brain heals.
