Delaware’s Injury And Medical Malpractice Leaders

September 2019 Archives

Lawsuit alleges father's death was caused by surgical errors

These days, thanks to technology and safety regulations, surgery is relatively safe. The state of Delaware is home to skilled and experienced physicians who combine their knowledge with advanced medical technology to produce better patient outcomes. However, no surgery is totally without risk, especially when humans are involved. A man in another state filed a lawsuit after surgical errors allegedly killed his father.

Car accidents with tractor-trailers are often fatal

As the U.S. economy continues to grow, there is a greater need to ship goods and merchandise throughout the country. The most economical and efficient way to do this is with tractor-trailers. For Delaware motorists in passenger vehicles, it can definitely be intimidating to share the road with these massive trucks. Because they are so big, car accidents involving tractor-trailers have a much higher chance of being fatal.

Birth injuries: Lawsuit settled for over $11 million

Giving birth is an incredibly fragile process, and parents in Delaware trust that medical providers will provide the appropriate care throughout this process. During this delicate time, any mistake or deviation from the accepted standard of care can result in birth injuries. A lawsuit filed in another state alleged that the negligence of doctors during birth resulted in a baby boy suffering permanent and severe brain damage.

Car accidents involving bicycles are on the rise in Delaware

In the state of Delaware, cycling has become a popular form of recreation and transportation. Traveling by bicycle is environmentally friendly, very economical and a great way to stay in shape. However, as roadways across the state become more crowded, traveling by bicycle can also be very dangerous. Since cyclists are minimally protected, car accidents involving bicycles have a greater chance of being serious or fatal.

Head-on car accident leaves police with questions

There are times when a car crash has a very clear cause and someone who is very clearly at fault. Other times, police have to piece together exactly what happened, based on evidence and eyewitness testimony, if either is available. This is what Delaware police are facing with a recent car accident where two vehicles struck each other head-on.

How physician burnout leads to surgical errors

Surgical errors and other types of medical malpractice happen for numerous reasons, from poor recordkeeping to a lack of communication. Sometimes, providers are outright neglectful or abusive, whereas other times the mistakes are unintentional yet happen anyway due to factors such as carelessness or time constraints.

Car accidents: Hit-and-run crashes can be traumatic

Unfortunately, not all drivers in Delaware are careful or responsible behind the wheel. It's safe to say that no person wants to be involved in a crash, yet thousands of people every year are injured or killed in car accidents caused by negligent drivers. Being involved in an accident is scary enough, but when the at-fault driver flees the scene, the experience can definitely be traumatic. Police are seeking information about a recent hit-and-run crash near Greenville.

Family to receive $3 million after surgical errors led to death

Most doctors in Delaware will not recommend surgery to patients unless it is absolutely necessary. Although surgical procedures are much safer these days, surgery is still risky. A lawsuit filed in another state claims that a surgeon performed unnecessary surgery on a woman, and she eventually died due to surgical errors.
