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.

EpiPen maker accused of neglecting life-threatening malfunctions

EpiPens have been in the news lately, and not for their life-saving properties. From accusations of price gouging to a recall in Singapore over concerns regarding defects, the device has been getting a lot of flak over improprieties and more. Now, there's more potentially bad press on the horizon as the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) has accused Pfizer, which manufactures the product for the drugmaker Mylan, of failing to properly investigate accusations of malfunctioning EpiPens, according to a recent story by the New York Times.

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.

New rule could affect many Kentucky pediatric malpractice claims

Medical personnel who tend to Kentucky's children must meet certain standards of care. They often make decisions that affect the lives of their young patients. If those decisions turn out to be mistakes, severe harm or even death could follow. Under these circumstances, parents may be entitled to file pediatric malpractice claims.
