Doctor becomes medical malpractice attorney

An accident in a baseball game 12 years ago broke bones in his hand and shattered his career as a surgeon. Prevented from answering the call as a doctor, he turned to a new calling: the study of law and life as a medical malpractice attorney. Lawrence Schlachter has been a surgeon and is now a lawyer fighting for patients who have suffered at the hands of negligent physicians, nurses or hospital staff.

The sound of healing

For people who are ill, the sound of silence can be a healing absence of distracting noise. Unfortunately, as anyone who has been hospitalized in Covington or Cincinnati can tell you, hospitals are anything but quiet.

Unnecessary but lucrative procedures

Some readers of our Covington medical malpractice blog will recall a post we published back in October on an Indiana cardiologist. The New York Times had run a thought-provoking investigative piece on a doctor who retired in 2014, leaving behind hundreds of angry and injured former patients.

Ohio Supreme Court mulling medical malpractice case

It's a little over an hour's drive north from Covington to find the suburban home of a retired Air Force colonel who is waiting to hear the Ohio Supreme Court rule on his medical malpractice case. The high court won't be deciding whether or not the former colonel and airline pilot was harmed by a negligent surgeon, but whether or not he waited too long to file his claim against the Cleveland Clinic.

Medical malpractice: A pop quiz

It's the thing everyone dreaded in school: the pop quiz. The good folks at PopTorts.com recently unveiled a new quiz on medical malpractice, so we thought we would help you relive memories of childhood while hopefully broadening your understanding of this complex area of law, all at the same time.

Wealth over well-being

He was a trusted doctor for decades in a town not much smaller than Covington. People listened carefully when the cardiologist spoke and they followed his recommendations. When the Munster, Indiana, physician advised them to take medication, they took it. When the heart specialist said someone needed stents inserted, that's what happened. And when he told folks that they needed open heart surgery, their chests were split open so that he could operate.

New development in case of surgeon accused of medical malpractice

Covington residents who missed a recent report from Cincinnati's WCPO will be interested in the latest developments in the case of the spine doctor who performed unnecessary operations. The hospital where he performed a number of medically unneeded spine surgeries has agreed to pay $4.1 million to Medicare and Medicaid.

Forced to pay more than attention

When a person prevails in a medical malpractice lawsuit, there are a number of emotions that they can experience, including relief that justice was done and that they will receive compensation for things such as past and future medical bills. Sometimes a person who prevails feel vindications, knowing they have proven to a court that they were harmed by a negligent Covington doctor or Kentucky hospital.

Candid camera-phones

Virtually everyone carries a smartphone, which means everyone also carries with them a camera and audio recorder. We can see the power of these media tools on the news virtually every day, as fires, crimes, car accidents, arrests and more are captured on phones and then shared with the world.
