Delaware’s Injury And Medical Malpractice Leaders

December 2019 Archives

Negligent medical care results in thousands of brain injuries

The brain is one of the most important yet most delicate organs in the human body. Any injury to this vital organ can have permanent ramifications for victims. Brain injuries are some of the most debilitating types of injuries a person can suffer. When these injuries happen as a result of negligence, victims -- including surviving families of deceased victims -- in Delaware can pursue legal action.

Car accidents involving pedestrians are becoming more frequent

Many Delaware residents choose walking as a main source of transportation these days. Traveling by foot is economical and also a great way to stay in shape and maintain a healthy lifestyle. However, walking near busy roadways is dangerous. In many states throughout the country, car accidents involving pedestrians are at an all time high. Tragically, these types of accidents have a higher risk of serious injury or death.

Mother says her providers failed to recognize birth injuries

For parents in Delaware and across the country, one of the most wonderful occasions in life is the birth of their children. It goes without saying that all parents want a healthy birth, but this doesn't always happen. Tragically, birth injuries continue to occur at an alarming rate in the United States. Childbirth is a fragile process and if any steps are neglected in this process, babies and mothers can be permanently injured.

Car accidents: DUI checkpoints set up to stop drunk driving

It's common knowledge that driving under the influence of alcohol is one of the most dangerous things a person can do, yet drivers in Delaware continue to get behind the wheel while intoxicated. On average, one person is killed by an drunk driver every 40 minutes in the United States. Tragically, car accidents involving drunk drivers have a higher chance of being very serious or fatal. To combat the problem of drunk driving, police forces across the state of Delaware routinely set up DUI checkpoints.

Should you have a C-section? Your doctor should know

If you've been attending prenatal visits at a Delaware medical center, you're likely getting excited (and perhaps, nervous) about your baby's upcoming birth. Whether you have several children already, or this will be your first labor and delivery experience, you no doubt plan to rely heavily on your doctor and medical team to help you and your baby enjoy the safest birthing experience possible.

Brain injuries: Surfer starts a foundation to help those in need

When a person bumps his or her head, he or she may think it's no big deal. However, even minor head trauma can be enough to result in debilitating injuries to one of the body's most delicate organs. In Delaware and across the country, many who suffer brain injuries often don't recognize the symptoms. One man who recovered from a traumatic brain injury now seeks to help others do the same.

Fatal car accidents can happen at any time

Accidents are just a part of life. Although a lot of accidents can be prevented by taking the proper precautions, some accidents are unavoidable, especially on crowded Delaware roadways. To avoid serious car accidents, drivers should stay focused behind the wheel and be aware of their surroundings at all times. Delaware State Police are continuing to investigate a recent crash that killed one person and injured another.

Staggered surgery approach could lead to surgical errors

These days, high patient volumes are the norm for most Delaware hospitals. Many medical facilities across the state are overcrowded and filled to capacity. Doctors and other medical professionals in many of these facilities are also understaffed, so providers are constantly in a rush to see more patients. To help with this, many surgeons will use an approach called staggered surgery in which they perform multiple surgeries in an assembly line fashion. This volume-based approach only makes surgical errors more likely.
