Anesthesiology errors involving needle in spine spark suit

A woman in another state recently claimed that a medical professional at a naval hospital left an anesthesia needle in her spine after she went through a Cesarean section 14 years ago. She has thus decided to file a medical liability claim against the government, seeking damages. Anyone in Kentucky who is a victim of anesthesiology errors likewise has the right to seek justice through the civil court system.

Many risks of anesthesia are preventable

Surgery can be a terrifying thought to many people, especially when anesthesia is necessary. If your doctor says something along the lines of, "Not to worry, we will put you to sleep temporarily," it most likely will not reassure you. Patients may wonder if they might still feel pain while unable to move or whether they won't wake up at all.

Do you think a delayed diagnosis of cancer took your loved one?

Far too many people here in Kentucky and across the country manifest symptoms that they simply cannot explain. Many of the preliminary symptoms that people suffer from can also be explained by other illnesses. Without additional testing, doctors could miss the proper diagnosis. A delayed diagnosis of cancercould rob a patient of the chance at early intervention that could save the patient's life.

The shocking truth about medical malpractice

Our firm has seen first-hand the devastating effect of medical malpractice. When doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, pharmacists and other medical professionals make mistakes, patients' lives are literally on the line. We've helped victims and grieving loved ones pick up the pieces after birth injuries, misdiagnosis, surgical errors, anesthesiology errors and pediatric malpractice cause upheaval. Our efforts have helped recover compensation, bring about systemic change in medical facilities and give families closure.

Pediatric malpractice issues: Standard of care

You entrusted your child to a Kentucky doctor. Later, you found out that trust was misplaced. You want to file a pediatric malpractice claim, but first, you need to know whether the doctor violated the standard of care. The answer to that question in many cases is not a simple one.

An emergency room misdiagnosis results in a verdict over $20.6M

What should have been a joyous time in a couple's life quickly turned to pain and grief. Now, the couple's child will grow up without a mother due to an emergency room misdiagnosis. Her husband, who is not from Kentucky, recently received a verdict awarding him more than $20.6 million for the injustice that led to his wife's untimely and unnecessary death.

Were birth injuries due to a slow or absent response?

Few things are more natural than pregnancy. A woman's body knows what to do, and for the vast majority of women here in Kentucky and around the world, their pregnancies are uneventful -- medically speaking. A certain percentage of women encounter difficulties that put the lives of both mother and child in jeopardy, however. If those conditions are not treated swiftly and efficiently, birth injuries to either or both could occur.

Could monitoring cancer be as effective as surgery?

While many strides have been made over the years in treating prostate cancer, it still remains that number two cause of death in men. Because of this, many who are diagnosed may automatically opt for surgery and chemotherapy, rather than just monitoring the size of a cancerous tumor and treating it when it becomes dangerous.
