Medical malpractice: Negligence leaves child with brain damage

When an infant in Tennessee or elsewhere experiences serious medical concerns, swift and proper treatment could be vital to his or her well-being. Any delay in administering the necessary care could cause substantial harm to a child's health and may even lead to long-term or permanent damage. A family in another state was recently awarded just over $130 million in a medical malpractice claim after negligence caused their child to suffer permanent brain damage.

Do you have grounds for filing medical malpractice in Tennessee?

When you entrust your health or the health of your child to a Tennessee medical team, you can reasonably expect every doctor, nurse, practitioner or other staff member involved to act according to the highest accepted standard for patient safety. For instance, if a doctor would approach you to perform a physical examination without first washing his or her hands, that would be a direct violation of standard protocol.  

Car accidents: Crash in Tennessee injures 1, kills 2

Losing control of a vehicle in traffic can be a scary experience, and drivers may have little time to correct similar errors and avoid a possible disaster. Car accidents that occur when a vehicle spins out of control can have disastrous results, and those involved in such an incident could suffer permanent or fatal harm in the process. A recent crash involving similar circumstances has reportedly claimed the lives of two individuals in Tennessee.

Family awarded $7 million judgment in medical malpractice claim

When it comes to a serious medical condition, a proper diagnosis is essential to starting a patient in Tennessee on the correct path of treatment. Any errors in diagnosing a condition can lead to improper care that may only cause a person's health to deteriorate, or in some cases, it may also lead to new medical concerns. A family has recently been awarded a substantial judgment in a medical malpractice lawsuit after an incorrect diagnosis caused a woman to suffer permanent damage.

Cutting edge technology and defective medical devices

There are a multitude of devices that are used to assist with the treatment of a variety of medical conditions, many of which may pose little to no threat to a person's well-being. Unfortunately, some products can be dangerous, and defective medical devices could leave a person with permanent or potentially fatal injuries. Recent studies suggest that as companies in Tennessee and elsewhere are constantly taking measures to be on the cutting edge of technology, steps must be taken to ensure products are properly tested in the process.
