Delaware’s Injury And Medical Malpractice Leaders

November 2018 Archives

Surgical errors directly affect the lives of patients

Literally hundreds of thousands of surgical procedures are performed every day across the United States. Thanks to skilled surgeons, advanced technology and stringent regulations, the vast majority of surgeries in America are successful and allow patients to have healthier, pain-free lives. However, with any medical procedure, there is always risk involved. Surgical errors happen more than most Delaware residents realize. Mistakes made during surgeries are responsible for thousands of deaths and injuries every year.

Car accidents: Driver faces charges after crash with motorcycle

Motorcycles are a popular form of transportation in Delaware. They are smaller, take up less space and are more fuel efficient than passenger vehicles. However, due to their small size, motorcycles can be difficult for other motorists to spot, especially during low light conditions. Visibility issues are primary contributing factors in car accidents involving motorcycles. Tragically, these type of accidents often end in serious injury or death.

Distracted driving causing more car accidents than ever before

Being involved in a crash is an event that no person wants to face. Unfortunately, car accidents are one of the leading causes of death and injury in the United States. In Delaware especially, roads are more crowded than ever, so drivers who navigate these crowded roads need to stay focused at all times behind the wheel. However, statistics are showing that Delaware drivers these days are paying less attention to the road and more attention to cell phones and other gadgets.

Car accidents: Crash results in multiple injuries

Accidents often happen when least expected. When drivers get behind the wheel, the last thing they expect is to be involved in a serious accident. However, statistics say that almost every driver will be involved in an accident at some point in his or her life. Car accidents have become almost inevitable on crowded Delaware roads. A recent three-vehicle crash near Dagsboro resulted in multiple injuries.

Alleged surgical errors may have ended NFL player's career

Surgeries are delicate procedures that require constant focus and attention by doctors and nurses. Any deviation from the standard of care can result in catastrophic consequences for the patient. Thousands of injuries and deaths happen each year in Delaware and across the country due to surgical errors. Sharrif Floyd, a former NFL defensive lineman recently filed a lawsuit against a surgeon over claims that negligence during surgery ended his football career.

Car accidents happening more and more on crowded Delaware roads

When compared to the rest of the country, Delaware is a relatively small state. Although small in size, the state is densely populated. Roadways here experience extremely high traffic volumes resulting in constant congestion. Safely operating a motor vehicle on these crowded roads takes constant focus and attention. Unfortunately, not all drivers these days are cautious behind the wheel, which often leads to car accidents.

Surgical errors can have devastating effects on patients

Mistakes and errors during medical care are not uncommon. Unfortunately, any error during a surgical procedure will be magnified, with the patient potentially suffering disastrous consequences. Delaware is home to some of the most highly-trained and skilled surgeons in the country, but no amount of training or education can totally prevent surgical errors from happening.
