Medical malpractice blamed for death of patient

A woman went to an emergency room outside Kentucky last year because she was not feeling well. She was apparently presenting symptoms of fever, body aches and dizziness. What transpired from that point on resulted in tragedy. Her subsequent death led her husband to claim that it was the result of medical malpractice.

Misinterpretation of living wills and medical malpractice

Imagine a loved one taking time to execute a thorough estate plan that includes specific advanced directives for urgent medical care in life or death situations. Imagine further the devastation that would ensue if a Kentucky doctor were negligent and acted contrary to those instructions. This type of error could result in a terrible medical malpractice situation that, in worst case scenario, might prove fatal to a patient.

Drug interactions can result from medical malpractice or negligence

You trust your doctors to do what's right for you. When they prescribe a medication, you generally believe that taking it as ordered is in your best interests. Most of the time, a new prescription gets filled at the pharmacy, taken as ordered, and works as intended by the prescribing physician. Sometimes, however, a doctor may prescribe a medication that directly impacts the effectiveness of another or causes a dangerous combination of chemicals. These issues that arise from combinations of prescribed medications are called drug interactions.

Medical malpractice testimony takes aim at surgeon

Kentucky medical patients who undergo back surgery have the right to reasonably expect that the surgeons performing their operations know what they're doing and are acting in accordance with accepted safety standards. After all, that's not too much to expect when a person is entrusting his or her spine to someone. It doesn't always happen that way, however, as made evident in recent medical malpractice court hearings in another state.

3 things pregnant women should know during labor

Many pregnant women choose to create a birth plan to help guide what happens during labor and delivery. While this is a great way to prepare for the birth of your child, birth plans can't address all the issues that might occur. Whether you are creating a birth plan now or are getting ready to head to the hospital or birthing center, you should remember these three important points.

Truck accidents, medical bills and liability

If you're traveling along a Kentucky highway and the driver of a tractor-trailer speeding alongside you loses operating control and crashes into your vehicle, who is financially responsible for your injuries and/or those of your passengers? Although the answer typically depends on several key factors, the gist of it is that any party deemed negligent may face claims for monetary relief in civil court. Truck accidents, in particular, often result in catastrophic, if not fatal injuries.
