Wrongful death case involving alleged diagnosis failure settled

No patient should have to face diagnosis-related negligence at the hands of a medical professional or a medical facility. Such negligence can be incredibly harmful to patients. Such negligence can sometimes even have fatal results.

Woman brings lawsuit alleging post-surgical negligence

When one thinks of harmful surgery-related negligence, one might immediately think of negligence that occurs during a surgery. However, a patient can also suffer great harm when a medical professional or medical facility fails to act properly after a surgery.

Man claims he was prescribed wrong dosage of heart medication

Prescription medications can be of great benefit to patients when properly prescribed. However, when a medical professional or medical facility commits an error when prescribing a medication to a patient (such as prescribing the wrong medication or prescribing a medication at the wrong dosage), something that was meant to help a patient can quickly become something of great harm. Prescription medication errors can result in patients suffering impactful injuries.

Man claims doctor accidentally stabbed him in spine with needle

There are many different types of medical equipment that medical professionals use in surgeries and medical procedures. It is very important for medical professionals to act properly when operating medical equipment. When a medical professional acts negligently while operating a piece of medical equipment during a surgery or procedure, it can result in the patient the surgery or procedure is being performed on suffering harm.

Too many deaths caused by diagnosis failures

When a loved one dies, the instant reaction is to ask why. The pain of losing a spouse or other family member can at least be softened by knowing exactly what caused the death, and that everything possible was done to diagnose and treat the person before he or she died. But too often there lies a mystery. The sad truth is that throughout Connecticut and other states, doctors and other medical professionals aren’t always able to pinpoint the reason a patient suffered a fatal or debilitating medical problem. 

Jury rules against doctor in infant death case

Sometimes, infants experience medical problems that require care from medical professionals. When a medical professional is providing care to an infant, it is very important for the medical professional to make sure to not act negligently. Given how small and vulnerable infants are, medical negligence can be particularly impactful on them.
