Delaware’s Injury And Medical Malpractice Leaders

December 2017 Archives

Man suffers serious brain injuries after Amtrak derailment

Sometimes, there is a negative connotation surrounding personal injury lawsuits. For those in Delaware that suffer unexpected injuries due to the negligence of another, it is not always about seeking financial compensation. Some may view a lawsuit as a way to help prevent future unnecessary accidents and injuries. One family in another state is considering a lawsuit against Amtrak for similar reasons after their son suffered traumatic brain injuries following a train derailment.

Surgical errors: Forceps left in woman during surgery

Although believed to be rare in the Delaware medical community, medical instruments can be left behind in patients following a surgery. Because foreign objects are not meant to remain in the human body, they can cause serious pain and damage to a patient. Emergency surgeries, staff changes and other factors can increase the risk of foreign objects remaining in a patient. One woman in another state had the unfortunate experience to discover the complications that can result from surgical errors.

Man may have died from undiagnosed surgical errors

Trusting a loved one to someone else's care in a Delaware medical facility can be very difficult. When a loved one's health appears to deteriorate despite medical intervention, it can make trust even more difficult. One woman in another state spent days watching her husband's condition worsen daily as he was hospitalized for abdominal pain, only to lose him to death. She has now filed a medical malpractice lawsuit, alleging that his death was the result of delayed diagnosis of surgical errors.

Birth injuries resulting in permanent injury in Delaware

The time from pregnancy to birth often contains joy and excitement. However, when something goes wrong during pregnancy or delivery, a dream can easily become a nightmare. With many hospital professionals involved in a delivery, from nurses to OB/GYNs and other hospital staff, a mistake on anyone's part can result in permanent injury or damage to the mother or newborn.

Brain Injuries: Mother explains difficult and long recovery

Injuries occur across the United States and in Delaware on a regular basis due to unfortunate accidents or poor judgment. When an accident results in traumatic brain injuries, it can completely change the way of life for the victim and his or her family. One family in another state has been helping their son work through the recovery process regarding his own injury that he suffered earlier this year.

Car accidents: Pedestrain killed near light home light display

Many areas across the country have homeowners with large light displays around this time of year. Many flock to view the displays due to their numerous lights, themed shows, uncountable character blow-ups and activities for families to enjoy. The displays have not only become a tradition for many, but they may also become a traffic nightmare. Car accidents are bound to happen. Unfortunately, the crowds drawn to a popular light display in Delaware resulted in one man's death.

Understanding football brain injuries may help other victims

The permanent damage that players in the National Football league sometimes suffer has recently become public knowledge. Many former and current football players are suffering serious brain injuries during games and practice. While most people in Delaware will not likely suffer brain injuries from playing football, the knowledge gained from studying football players' brains will likely increase the understanding of how the brain heals following injury.

2 patients die from surgical errors that resulted in infection

Any Delaware patient that chooses to read a surgical consent form will likely be aware that infection is a listed possible risk of any surgery. Any time surgical errors occur, the risk of infection and other complications significantly increase. Unfortunately, any infection can be deadly if not treated appropriately. Two families in another state feel that their loved one's fatal infections were not managed well and were likely preventable. Separate lawsuits have been filed in civil court.
