Medical Malpractice Archives

Surgery cripples child and results in a medical malpractice suit

The human body is an amazing organism. When one thinks of all of the things that the human body is capable of, it is truly astonishing. Sometimes the body suffers an injury that requires major intervention from medical professionals in Ohio. When this intervention goes wrong, the consequences can be devastating and can result in a medical malpractice case.

Ordered medical tests not done can result in a medical mistake

When a person goes to a medical facility in Ohio for tests, he or she expects that the recommended tests will be done. On occasion, other tests may be suggested, and the patient typically signs a form allowing for the test. Failure to perform recommended tests could result in a medical mistake being made. Such is the case of a gentleman who was recommended to have an HIV test done. He was experiencing facial paralysis and was considered at high risk for HIV as he was gay and had worked as a paramedic.

Missed infection results in amputation, medical malpractice claim

The availability of joint replacement is a wonder of modern medicine. Countless lives have been improved in Ohio by the availability of this technology. Surgery is never without risk, and major surgery comes with incrementally more risk. A successful operation brings with it great improvement in the quality of life. But when complications resulting from an operation occur, the outcome can be far less favorable and result in a case of medical malpractice.

When a medical mistake results in catastrophe

When a loved one is seriously ill in Ohio or anywhere else, the family will trust the advice of the people they believe to be the experts: the hospitals and doctors. This could hold true particularly when a child is involved. The family is consumed with worry and the need to help each other through the crisis. They trust the medical professionals to do the best for their sick child. A medical mistake would not be at the forefront of their minds.

Medical malpractice claims re lack of informed consent

Ohio residents who have medical problems would naturally expect their physicians to provide a high degree of care. A patient is entitled to be informed of the diagnosis of his or her condition, what the recommended treatment will involve and whether any risks exist. A doctor must also notify the patient of alternative therapies and their risks, along with the potential consequences if the patient chooses to take no action. Failure to ensure that a patient understands this information could lead to a medical malpractice claim.

Alleged medical mistake results in additional $26,000 surgery

Whether in Ohio or anywhere else in the nation, doctors go through years of training and, consequently, charge high prices for the medical services they provide based on their area of expertise. Patients everywhere rely on this knowledge to ensure their well-being. A medical mistake can prove costly, and not just in terms of money; patients' health and even their lives are often at stake.

Hospital agrees to settlement in medical malpractice birth injury

A young boy was recently awarded a $4 million dollars in a lawsuit against the doctor who was blamed for birth injuries to the boy's brain. Soon after, the city-owned hospital where the boy was born agreed to a settlement in the medical malpractice case. Birth injuries such as this happen far too often in Ohio and in other states.

Over $4M award to family of stroke victim for medical malpractice

Over $4 million has been awarded to a family in a wrongful death suit against a nursing home where their loved one died. The woman suffered a stroke while she was in the care of the home during recuperation from a fractured hip. Unfortunately, medical malpractice cases similar to this one are heard every year in Ohio.

Lawsuit claims doctor error didn't allow parents chance to abort

A recent medical malpractice suit claims that one set of parents were not given the chance to abort their baby that was born with cerebral palsy. The lawsuit contends that doctor error prevented them from having the information that they needed in order to make a decision about the life of their child. This case was not heard in Ohio, but the Supreme Court of the state in which the couple resides upheld the parents' choice to sue.
