Medical malpractice: The potential danger of a misdiagnosis

When it comes to a serious medical condition, a swift and proper diagnosis may be essential to providing the necessary care to a patient. Individuals in Tennessee who visit a hospital for treatment generally expect doctors to be capable of issuing a correct diagnosis, as failing to do so could bring about disastrous consequences. Recent studies suggest that errors during the diagnosis of a patient are one of the leading causes of medical malpractice claims.

Family awarded $68 million medical malpractice judgment

When a person in Tennessee is scheduled to undergo a serious medical procedure, he or she may expect the surgeon to remain in the operating room throughout the process to ensure it goes as planned. Should a surgeon choose to leave the room before the operation is finished, the remainder of the procedure may be left in the hands of those who aren't qualified to perform it. A family has been awarded a $68 million judgment in a medical malpractice lawsuit after complications from a surgery left a man in a coma.

Defective medical devices: Lawsuit filed over knee implant flaws

Many patients in Tennessee and across the nation rely on a medical device to aid in treating a health condition. These individuals may also expect to be informed of any potential risks associated with a product, as dangerous or defective medical devices can pose a serious threat to the health of a patient. A medical device maker in another state has recently become the subject of a lawsuit after it failed to notify medical professionals of defects in certain replacement knees.

Man files medical malpractice lawsuit following death of wife

Patients in Tennessee and elsewhere who are scheduled to undergo major surgery generally rely on medical professions to be capable of safeguarding their health throughout the procedure. Should negligence be present in any form during such a procedure, the harm suffered can be severe, potentially resulting in further damage to his or her health, or worse. A man has recently filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against a doctor following the decline of health and death of his wife.
