Defective medical devices: Warnings not written on the label

Companies in Tennessee and elsewhere that manufacture medical devices are required to inform potential patients of the possible risks associated with their products. However, some might not always receive all the necessary information about a device prior to making a decision, especially when these concerns are concealed. Those who suffer serious harm due to defective medical devices may wish to know about their options for seeking restitution, especially if they were unaware of the level of risk involved.

Medical malpractice: Delay in treatment proves fatal for 1

When patients in Tennessee and elsewhere visit the emergency room suffering from critical injuries, the timing of their treatment could be essential to the outcome of their situation. Those who are left without treatment for extended periods can suffer in various ways, and in some cases, the lack of prompt medical care could even prove fatal. A family in another state was recently awarded $30 million in a medical malpractice lawsuit after a delay in treatment led to the untimely death of a 24-year-old man.

Tennessee nurses should know how to avoid medication errors

There are any number of adverse health conditions that you might suffer that prompt a doctor to prescribe medication as treatment. Especially if you have recently had surgery and are in recovery, you may need pain medication, antibiotics or other drugs to aid you in the healing process. Not all medications are compatible, meaning, it can be quite dangerous to take them simultaneously.

Early morning car accident kills 1 in Tennessee

There are a multitude of scenarios under which a dangerous motor vehicle collision could occur. When operating a vehicle during times of decreased visibility, drivers may find it challenging to spot a car that has shifted into an oncoming lane in time to react and avoid a potential catastrophe. A recent head-on car accident has killed one person and left another with life-threatening injuries in Tennessee.

Family awarded $3.8 million in medical malpractice settlement

Medical professionals in Tennessee and elsewhere have a duty to provide each patient with a certain quality of treatment and care. Failure to provide this standard of care could place the health of a patient at risk, and in some cases, such negligence could bring about potentially life-altering consequences. A family in another state was recently awarded a substantial sum in a settlement agreement in a medical malpractice lawsuit after negligence caused a wife and mother of three to fall into a coma.
