Medical malpractice and nursing homes: Bruises a telltale sign

Many adult children in Tennessee will research and visit nursing homes in their areas to help aging parents find suitable residences in which to spend their later years. It's often a very emotional experience, and those involved are usually concerned with several important issues, most significant of which is personal safety. No one wants a mother or father to spend the final years of life in a place where he or she is at risk for abuse. Although there are high standards and regulations in place to govern such facilities, medical malpractice remains a problematic issue in many areas.

Government to pay half of medical malpractice settlement

Pregnant women in Tennessee, no matter what stage of pregnancy they may be in at the time, have the right to reasonably expect appropriate, safe medical attention when concerning issues arise involving their own health or the health of their babies. For one woman in another state, that's not exactly what happened. She sought medical attention for decreased fetal movement, yet she did not see the attending physician for more than three hours after reporting to the hospital. A medical malpractice lawsuit later ensued.

Defective drugs and medical devices often cause severe injuries

Any licensed manufacturer in Tennessee who makes medical products of any kind is responsible for testing said products, as well as adhering to all federal and state laws that may govern their production before making them available to consumers. Defective drugs and medical devices are often root causes of serious medical injuries, including those that ultimately result in death. Patients and their families have the right to pursue justice against any and all parties identified as possible liable sources when illness or injury has adversely affected them because of a failed product.

What are the dangers of transvaginal mesh?

For women suffering from pelvic floor conditions like Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) or Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP), doctors may recommend a transvaginal mesh implant to strengthen the tissue. While this was once a common treatment for these conditions, women need to be aware of the many risks involved. There have been many recalls and lawsuits surrounding transvaginal mesh.

Birth Injuries: What Parents Need To Know

Expectant parents spend a good deal of time dreaming about what it will be like to welcome a new son or daughter into their family. From painting the nursery and deciding on a name to purchasing a stroller and assembling a crib, there is a lot of planning and preparation that takes place in the months leading up to a baby's birth. Nothing, however, can prepare parents for the fear, anxiety and devastation that occur when complications arise during a baby's delivery.

Recovering losses after trucking accidents in Tennessee

If you've ever been driving on a Tennessee highway when a tractor-trailer comes barreling alongside you, you understand how frightful such situations can be. When 40 tons of steel is riding your bumper or cutting you off in your lane, the lives of everyone nearby are greatly at risk, including yours. Trucking accidents happen every day throughout the nation, many resulting in catastrophic injuries and death.
