Alleged delayed diagnosis causes woman to lose foot

A woman in another state recently claimed that she lost her leg due to the carelessness of a hospital and several medical providers. She has filed a medical malpractice claim against these parties. Patients in West Virginia who suffer harm due to a doctor's delayed diagnosis have the right to take legal action.

Medication errors among common causes of malpractice claims

When patients seek treatment from doctors, they naturally expect their physicians to properly care for them. If this does not happen, they have the right to take legal action. A wide range of errors on the part of physicians are grounds for medical malpractice lawsuits in West Virginia and elsewhere, including failure to diagnose or medication errors.

Do I have a medical malpractice case?

Although advances in modern medicine have extended life expectancy and reduced mortality rates, there is no guarantee of satisfaction with any medical procedure or interaction with medical professionals. Dissatisfaction with the outcome of a procedure does not necessarily mean you have the basis for a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Birth injuries grounds for lawsuit

A family in another state claimed that a physician's decisions caused irreversible brain damage in their baby boy. The family thus filed a medical malpractice claim against the federally employed doctor and was recently awarded more than $33 million in the suit. Any person in West Virginia whose baby suffers birth injuries and other birth-related problems as a result of a doctor's negligence has the right to take legal action against the medical professional.

$75K lawsuit filed alleging anesthesiologist surgical errors

A woman in a different state claims that an anesthesiologist incorrectly intubated her stepmother during the stepmother's emergency surgery. The alleged incident ended up causing the stepmother's death back in 2013. The stepdaughter therefore filed a $75,000 lawsuit against the doctor in 2015, and this suit is slated to go to trial this June. If surgical errors lead to the death of a loved one in West Virginia or elsewhere, this is grounds for medical malpractice litigation.

Alleged delayed diagnosis leads to suit against veterans facility

A couple in another state has accused a veterans medical facility of not diagnosing a man's epidural abscess in a timely fashion. Thus, the medical facility is now facing a medical malpractice claim. If a delayed diagnosis leads to harm to a patient in West Virginia or elsewhere, that patient has the right to take legal action in the pursuit of justice.

Case involving failure to diagnose leads to $45M award

A mother and her child were recently awarded $45 million in a case involving medical malpractice. The mother had filed the medical malpractice lawsuit on her son's behalf following doctors' failure to diagnose the boy's leg fracture back in 2005. The leg fracture stemmed from abuse that the boy suffered at his father's hands. Medical providers in West Virginia who fail to exercise a reasonable degree of care when diagnosing patients may be held liable, or legally responsible, through the civil court system.

Alleged surgical errors lead to lawsuit against cruise line

A man in another state recently claimed that he was hurt on a cruise ship due to medical malpractice. Specifically, surgical errors reportedly led to his injury. If medical providers in West Virginia and elsewhere fail to provide proper care to patients and their patients suffer injuries as a result, they may be held liable in civil court.

Alleged delayed diagnosis leads to man's death

The apparent delay of a medical diagnosis at a medical center resulted in the death of a man in another state. The man's daughter has therefore filed a malpractice claim against the medical center. If a delayed diagnosis occurs in West Virginia, the medical center responsible for it could face claims for financial responsibility through the civil court system.

Infections, errors may spark malpractice lawsuit

A woman in a different state claims that medical professionals mistakenly took her sick brother to the wrong nursing home hundreds of miles away and then back again following his discharge from a hospital. Her brother ended up dying from sepsis as well as pneumonia. She has filed a medical malpractice suit. If an individual in West Virginia loses a loved one due to infections or other medical problems resulting from medical negligence, legal action may be appropriate.
