Serious surgical errors result in $109 million award to patient

A woman in another state lost her feet and hands years ago as a result of a botched surgery to eliminate an ovarian cyst. However, she was awarded a whopping $109 million by a jury recently. Anyone in West Virginia or elsewhere who suffers as a result of surgical errors likewise has the right to seek justice through the civil court system.

Avoiding the Danger of Distraction in Medical Settings

It is not the first concern most patients think of when faced with medical procedures. However, distraction can be just as deadly in a medical setting as it can be behind the wheel of a car. In recent years, the Pennsylvania Patient Safety Authority has analyzed over a thousand reports that could be attributed to distraction in a medical setting. Of the 1,015 reports analyzed, thirteen cases resulted in patient harm and forty reports mention distractions associated with computers, phones, or other technology that led to medical errors. In an age when technology should be helping medical professionals provide better care, its ability to distract can sometimes contribute to medical malpractice.

Surgical errors by oral surgeon lead to $2 million settlement

A teenage girl in another state sadly passed away following oral surgery. However, her family recently achieved the settlement of a lawsuit they filed against her oral surgeon after her death. The lawsuit was settled for $2 million. Likewise, those who are victims of surgical errors in West Virginia have the right to seek justice through civil litigation.

Medication errors may lead to permanent damage

A jury in another state recently returned a verdict that awarded a woman $12 million as part of a medical malpractice suit filed against a university health network. The woman is in a vegetative state reportedly due to medication errors. Anyone in West Virginia who suffers harm due to a medical provider's failure to provide him or her with the proper medication has the right to take legal action.

Birth injuries lead to $3 million award

A family in another state claimed that a doctor was careless regarding the manner in which he pulled a baby out during the delivery process. They claimed that their baby ended up having a paralyzed right arm as a result. The family filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against the doctor and was recently awarded $3 million due to the birth injuries their child suffered. Anyone in West Virginia whose child suffers birth injuries due to a doctor's negligence has the right to seek justice through the civil court system.

Infections, other health issues may be grounds for litigation

A woman in another state claimed that health care providers' actions caused her mother to die almost two years ago. She therefore decided to file a lawsuit against these providers, alleging wrongful death and medical malpractice. If a patient loses his or her life in West Virginia due to infections and other complications stemming from the carelessness of doctors or other health care professionals, the patient's surviving family members have the right to seek to hold them accountable through the civil court system.

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.
