Patient sues over alleged errors in knee surgery

Going through surgery is often a daunting prospect, especially if you are to be put under general anesthetic. You place yourself fully in the hands of your surgeons and normally this should not be a problem. Many of Maryland's physicians are diligent, conscientious professionals. However, each year, too many patients still fall victim to medical malpractice throughout the United States. One man in Oregon had all too close a call when doctors allegedly focused on the wrong knee while preparing him for surgery.

Husband and wife sue over undiagnosed back injury

When you are injured or unwell, you rely on your doctors to determine the cause and aid you in your recovery. At the very least, you do not expect them to make your condition worse. Unfortunately, misdiagnosis of a condition or failure to diagnose it at all can mean that it gets far worse before anything is done about it. In Maryland, as is the case in many U.S. states, all too many patients suffer the consequences of medical negligence.

Brain injury victim prepares to graduate

The brain is a delicate thing and even a small knock to the head can have long-term repercussions. It is easy to forget this though, especially with all the falls and accidents that happen every day in Maryland. Brain injuries are a serious matter, however, and one that is given too little attention. They can leave people permanently changed or even in need of constant care. Nevertheless, survivors often make remarkable progress in spite of their injuries.

Distracted doctoring during surgery could have deadly results

Safety discussions surrounding cellphone use have focused on those that do so behind the wheel, but that isn’t the only place where texting, talking, surfing the internet, checking an email or updating a Facebook status can put others in harm’s way.
