Delaware’s Injury And Medical Malpractice Leaders

November 2019 Archives

Distracted driving continues to be a main cause of car accidents

According to recent reports, Delaware is one of the most dangerous states in which to drive. Unfortunately, fatalities in car accidents continue to remain high again this year across the state. A number of factors may be contributing to this, but one of main causes of many fatal accidents is distracted driving. Statistics say that distracted driving has been a factor in nearly 10% of all fatal crashes this year.

Birth injuries: New report finds most deaths are preventable

Tragically, the rate of death and injury for mothers giving birth in Delaware and across the United States continues to rise. Every year, more than 50,000 mothers suffer birth injuries, statistics say. Out of those, about 700 mothers die, a number that is entirely too high.

Car accidents are almost unavoidable these days

It goes without saying that a traffic accident is something that no person wants to experience. However, one of the few guarantees in life is that accidents are going to happen. Most drivers will be involved in a crash at some point in their lives. The majority of car accidents are very minor and nothing more than inconveniences. Unfortunately, it seems serious and fatal crashes are happening more and more in Delaware.

Patients suffer the consequences of surgical errors

The state of Delaware is home to some of the most skilled and knowledgeable surgeons in the country. These skilled physicians perform their duties with care and save lives on a daily basis. Successful surgery is undoubtedly a process, and any missed step in this process can have disastrous implications for patients. Surgical errors kill and injure thousands of people every year in the United States.

Your doctor knows how to handle your high-risk pregnancy

Whether you're expecting your first child or have already navigated pregnancy and childbirth several times, one thing is certain: No two pregnancies are exactly the same. Many factors, including but not limited to your age, current state of health, diet and quality of care can significantly affect you and your baby throughout approximately nine months of prenatal care, and also during labor and delivery at a Delaware medical facility.

New treatment for brain injuries shows promise

The brain is one of the most important organs in the human body. It's also arguably the most fragile. An injury to the brain can be debilitating and affect a person for the rest of his or her life. Every year, nearly two and a half million people in Delaware and across the United States suffer brain injuries. According to a recent study, a new inexpensive treatment could help prevent brain injury deaths.

Car accidents: Crowded interstates can be extremely dangerous

Interstate highways are often the easiest and most efficient routes for travelers and commuters in Delaware and across the country. However, driving on crowded interstates at speeds in excess of 70 mph can be intimidating for any driver regardless of experience or skill level. According to statistics, nearly 5,000 people in the United States are killed every year in car accidents on interstates. A recent crash on I-95 in Wilmington claimed the life of one person and injured two others.

Common prescription error types

The intent of prescription medications is to treat various physical and mental issues that people may face. However, when a patient experiences prescription errors, it can have serious negative effects.

Surgical errors can have disastrous consequences for patients

Although surgical procedures these days are technically safer and more efficient, there will still be risks of mistakes any time humans are involved. Unfortunately, when mistakes are made, the patient suffers the consequences. Every year, surgical errors affect thousands of people in Delaware and across the country. A woman in another state filed a lawsuit alleging that a foreign object was left in her body for nearly 15 years following a surgery.
