Delaware’s Injury And Medical Malpractice Leaders

August 2019 Archives

For Delaware drivers, car accidents are inevitable

In life, nothing is guaranteed. The future cannot be predicted, and uncertainty is just something that is always there. Accidents can happen anywhere and at any time, especially on busy Delaware roadways. Drivers are faced with numerous dangers every time they get behind the wheel. Although traffic safety laws and infrastructure improvements help to reduce car accidents, no amount of preparation or precaution can totally prevent accidents from happening.

Surgical errors can happen even in minor procedures

When patients go for surgical procedures, they understandably expect to receive the best care possible. Luckily, thousands of Delaware residents are able to continue living happy and healthy lives thanks to successful surgeries. However, surgical errors happen more than most people realize. Any mistake made during surgery can lead to major complications and even death.

Car accidents are a leading cause of death and injury in Delaware

Most Delaware residents are very aware that roadways across the state are constantly bombarded with traffic. Also, many of these roads were built decades ago and were not designed to handle such high volumes of traffic. When these factors are taken into account, its no wonder that serious and fatal car accidents are on the rise. Traffic related accidents are one of the leading causes of death and injury across the state.

Thanks to technological advancements, surgeries these days are much safer. However, it doesn't matter how safe a surgical procedure is perceived to be; there is always risk involved. Many Delaware residents may not know that surgical errors are still quite common. In another state, a botched surgery left a woman paralyzed, and she filed a lawsuit.

Sadly, birth injuries continue to rise in the United States

The United States is largely considered to be the greatest country in the world, so one would think that United States citizens would also have access to the best medical care in the world. Unfortunately, this is not the case, especially for expectant mothers and newborns. According to a recent study, birth injuries and infant mortality rates are on the rise in Delaware and across the country.

Surgical errors: Even minor procedures can lead to death

When the word "surgery" comes to mind, most people think of a patient being cut open while the doctor performs the procedure. While its true that some surgeries are highly invasive and complicated, most surgeries in Delaware these days are not as intrusive. Laparoscopic surgeries are common and are performed by inserting a tiny camera through an incision that is about the size of a keyhole. However, even with very minor procedures, surgical errors are always a possibility.
