Medical Malpractice and Incompetence

Submitted by jrlaw on Jul 9th, 2010

Medical doctors lead famously stressful lives. They work long hours, pay a lot for their education and are held to higher standards than most other professionals. Unfortunately, some of these elements of their lives are at cross purposes with others. Doctors are oftentimes worked long hours to keep the profitability of hospitals high, but this means diminishing results in patient care. Medical malpractice law claims oftentimes deal with the results of this unhappy situation. In some cases, it’s the fact that the patient is simply treated as disposable that causes the problem.

A common incarnation of this is being prescribed a medication that is entirely inappropriate for the condition or the patient. This may occur because the patient’s condition was not diagnosed properly. It may also occur because of medical negligence: being prescribed an antibiotic that you’re allergic to, for instance, when that allergy was clearly noted on your records. While an attorney can provide recourse in these situations, your best option is to know your own medical history. If you’re allergic to penicillin, for instance, and a doctor writes you a prescription for amoxicillin, that should be a huge red flag.

Slip and Fall Injuries in Commercial Establishments

Submitted by jrlaw on Jun 28th, 2010

There is a common perception that people sue for reasons that are quite specious. Among the most popular cases to deride are those that involve someone getting hurt at a commercial establishment. There are usually disparaging remarks about the filer's intelligence and ethical nature thrown around. These statements are oftentimes made in complete ignorance of reality. When someone is hurt at a commercial property, there is certainly responsibility that lies somewhere. A good slip and fall lawyer knows how to find who is responsible and to hold them accountable for the injuries sustained.

One of the most common places to get hurt is at a restaurant. This usually happens due to poor hygiene on the part of the establishment, with spills and other slick spots being left on the floor while customers are about. There is no reason that this should be the case. Simply put, if a restaurant cannot guarantee a safe environment for their patrons, that restaurant should not be in business. No one enters a dining establishment with the impression that they need no-slip boots and a hardhat to be safe, nor should they.

The Severity of Sepsis Infection
 
Sepsis is a serious infection of the bloodstream. Though it can develop when the body is fighting a severe infection, it may also be the direct result of negligence or medical malpractice. The illness can originate from any site of infection, including pneumonia, urinary tract infection and open wounds caused by cellulitis, a skin infection, or bed sores. If not treated in a timely and appropriate manner, this medical condition can result in death.
