Delaware’s Injury And Medical Malpractice Leaders

March 2020 Archives

What repercussions could your loved one face after a TBI?

When you received news that your loved one had been involved in a car accident, you may have immediately felt a pit form in your stomach. While you were thankful to learn that he or she survived, you still felt uncertainty when you found out that your loved one had suffered a serious injury to the head.

Birth injuries: Any error could have fatal consequences

The birth of a child is the most joyful occasion for parents in Delaware and across the country. Unfortunately, birth injuries can turn this wonderful time into a complete and utter tragedy. Childbirth is a very fragile and detailed process, so when mistakes are made both infants and mothers can be fatally harmed. Unfortunately, the rate of injuries during childbirth remains disturbingly high in the United States. 

Car accident: Fatal crash remains under investigation

Everyone knows roadways across the state of Delaware are becoming increasingly dangerous. No person gets behind the wheel with the intent of getting into an accident. Unfortunately, a lot of car accidents are completely unpredictable and happen without warning. The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is currently investigating a fatal crash that happened near Clayton.

Thousands are affected by surgical errors every year

Thousands of people undergo surgical procedures every single day in Delaware and across the United States. Many of these procedures are classified as routine, but in reality, no surgery is actually routine. Surgical errors can occur in any type of procedure, no matter how minor. These days, gallbladder removal surgeries can be done laparoscopically and are considered some of the least invasive procedures. However, as one man in another state allegedly found out, mistakes during a seemingly minor procedure can have life-altering effects.

Common ways that mistakes happen in the emergency room

When you go to a Delaware emergency room, it is probably because you have a serious medical concern related to an injury or illness. You expect to receive prompt treatment from a doctor or nurse who has your best interests in mind. There is a significant amount of trust you and many others place with the hospital and the men and women who work there.

Fatal car accidents are increasing in Delaware

It's obvious that being on the road can be very risky. In Delaware these days, it seems just getting from point A to point B can be a literal chore. With so many vehicles sharing the road, crashes are inevitable. Unfortunately, the number of serious and fatal car accidents continues to rise year after year. A recent crash in Harrington resulted in the death of one man and serious injuries to two other people, including a child.

Surgical errors: Lawsuit results in $13 million settlement

Undergoing any surgical procedure, no matter how minor, can be absolutely nerve-wracking for both patients and families. It is expected and understood that patients will receive the best care possible. Unfortunately, surgical errors continue to affect hundreds of Delaware families every year. Although most surgeries are routine and noninvasive, any mistake can lead to permanent disabilities for the patient. A man in another state filed a lawsuit after a surgical device broke during his brain surgery.

Car accidents: Tragic crash claims the life of a mother

It goes without saying that nothing in life is guaranteed. Accidents can happen anywhere and in the blink of an eye. On busy Delaware roadways, car accidents happen on a daily basis. Fortunately, most of these accidents are fender-benders and nothing more than inconveniences. However, it seems more and more that crashes are turning out to be very serious.
