Woman awarded $109 million in medical malpractice suit

Although modern technology and regulations have made surgery in the state of Kentucky safer than ever before, errors can be made anytime humans are involved. A woman in another state lost her hands and feet due to complications stemming from a surgery to remove a cyst. She alleged that medical malpractice was to blame and filed a lawsuit. The lawsuit recently resulted in a substantial award to the plaintiff for her pain and suffering.

Although not widely publicised, negligence in health care is one of the leading causes of death and injury in Kentucky and across the United States. When patients undergo medical procedures, they place their trust and lives in the hands of skilled and well-trained physicians. Unfortunately, not all doctors are as careful as they should be. A recent medical malpractice lawsuit details the possible consequences of negligent care.

When humans are involved, mistakes will inevitably be made. Unfortunately, when errors or negligence occur in the medical field, the patients are directly affected. Some patients in Kentucky, especially infants and the elderly, may require day-to-day care. Negligence or delays in care could result in injury or even the death of the patient. When negligent care results in the injury or death, a medical malpractice lawsuit can be filed.

Misdiagnoses may be considered medical malpractice

It goes without saying that the correct diagnosis is often one of the first and most important steps when it comes to successfully treating ailing patients. When Kentucky residents seek medical attention, they place their lives in the hands of doctors and trust that those doctors will provide the best care available. A misdiagnosis may delay life-saving treatment or, in some cases, may mean that the patient receives no treatment at all. Failing to diagnose or misdiagnosing a disease can often be considered medical malpractice.

Medical malpractice: alleged wait for surgery causes death

Kentucky residents have access to some of the best medical care available in the country. Despite this, medical malpractice continues to be one of the leading causes of injury and death. Often, diagnosing and treating a disease or ailment in a quick, efficient and timely manner is the most important thing when it comes to the survival of the patient. Tragically, a man in another state died due an alleged delay in treatment and his family has filed a lawsuit.
