Vaginal Mesh- History of the Problem

Between the years of 2005 and 2010, nearly 4,000 vaginal mesh injuries have been reported to the Food and Drug Administration. In a 2010 article in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology, researchers stated that they had to cease a vaginal mesh clinical trial early because of the higher-than-expected number of complications and injuries. The trial was stopped when it was discovered that more than 15 percent of women who were implanted with vaginal mesh suffered vaginal mesh erosion within only three months of implantation. As a result of numerous negative reports, the FDA issued a vaginal mesh warning to patients and physicians in 2011, cautioning that the risks of using vaginal mesh are so severe that alternative treatments should be considered. It is now widely accepted that, in most cases, pelvic organ prolapsed can be treated without the use of vaginal mesh

Lawyers for Surgical Errors

Lawyers for surgical errors assist individuals injured or wrongful death by surgical medical negligence. If you or a loved one has been severly injured due to a surgical error you have a right to compensation. Although all surgeries are inherently risky, there are instances when there is malpractice. Even with competent, expert care, the possibility exists for negative reactions to anesthesia, and post-surgery infection. However, most patients do not readily anticipate surgical mistakes and errors. Anyone placing their lives in the hands of a doctor expects that that physician will provide expert and competent medical care, including the ability to manage the entire surgical team and hospital staff. Unfortunately, surgical errors are much more common than one might anticipate. Some surgical errors can be easily corrected others unfortunately, can result in serious injury or even death. A Lawyer for surgical errors and surgical medical negligence should be contacted if you have been injured or a loved one has been killded due to surgical medical negligence.

Call  Lawyers For Surgical Errors  at 800 733-5342.

Many surgical errors are not the result of a surgical complication. Instead, they are caused by negligent deviations from the prevailing professional standard of care. The potential errors include:

  • Failure to remove foreign objects such as sponges or surgical instruments from the patient’s body, resulting in infection or even death.
  • Anesthesia errors resulting in permanent brain damage, stroke, heart attack and death.
  • Failure to obtain the patient's prior informed consent with respect to a specific surgical procedure.
  • Perforation of the bowel.
  • , (bariatric surgery or stomach stapling) resulting in blood clots, infection or heart attack.
  • Severing a nerve.
  • Failure to monitor for sepsis (a blood infection) during and after surgery.
  • Penetration of eye tissue (such as the lens or cornea) during eye surgery.
  • Severing the ureter during a hysterectomy.
  • Back surgery errors resulting in permanent spinal cord injury.
  • Wrong site surgery (operation on the wrong area of the patient or operation on the wrong patient altogether).
  • Failure to use sterile equipment.
  • Damage or puncture of nearby organs.

Some surgical mistakes can be traced to poor pre-operative care and planning. A doctor must thoroughly analyze a patient’s medical history, medication and lifestyle choices prior to determining what surgical course, if any, should be taken. A surgeon must make sure that the procedure is as safe as possible by extensively monitoring the surgical team. This all requires that the surgeon and his or her team be experienced and competent enough to mitigate all risks of surgical error.

Cancer Misdiagnosis Malpractice Lawyers

Cancer misdiagnosis malpractice lawyers should be contacted if your cancer has been wrongly diasgnosed              800 733-5342

Cancer misdiagnosis is on the rise, despite innovative medical advances.  In fact, every year an estimated 12% of cancer cases — or one of every 8 — are initially misdiagnosed. While a cancer misdiagnosis can cause tremendous pain, fear, stress and financial loss, it also substantially reduces a patient’s chances for full recovery and survival. Medical advances in MRIs and x-rays provide patients with an increased chance at a full recovery; however, a full, healthy recovery depends on a timely diagnosis and proper treatment. A negligently delayed diagnosis of cancer can result in the spread of the disease to a point beyond which medical intervention can help. The progression of cancer can lead to a substantial increase in medical bills, pain and suffering, personal injury and wrongful death.

As a result of medical malpractice, cancer is often misdiagnosed as a cyst, chronic fatigue, graves disease, oral thrust, leukoplakia, dermatitis, halitosis, gastroparesis or anorexia nervosa.  Mistakes  that  malpractice lawyers actions  for include:

 

  • Breast cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Kidney cancer
  • Brain cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Leukemia

Cancer Misdiagnosis malpractice lawyers have filed following causes of  action in cancer diagnosis mistakes

  • Failure to order or follow up on tests, including a biopsy
  • Mistakenly diagnosing a tumor as benign
  • Mistakenly diagnosing a tumor as a cyst or an infection
  • Ignoring common symptoms of cancer, such as fatigue
  • Failure to identify lumps
  • Failure to follow-up with a patient
  • Misinterpretation of test results.

Call The attorney referral  service at 800 733-5342 for a cancer misdiagnosis malpractice lawyer

Alternatively, patients might be incorrectly diagnosed with cancer, resulting in tremendous pain and suffering caused by unnecessary surgery, radiation and extensive chemotherapy.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of cancer diagnosis error and resulting  medical malpractice, you may be entitled to damages including medical expenses, lost wages and other compensation.

Cerebral Palsey medical malpractice lawyers

If Cerebral Palsy is a result of  medical negligence an experienced Cerebral Palsey medical malpractice lawyer should be contacted.Cerebral palsy is not a particular disease but is a term used to describe brain damage in babies found at birth or shortly thereafter. Many times cerebral palsy is due to genetic abnormalities or unavoidable injuries that occur during pregnancy but well before the onset of labor. However, about one third of cerebral palsy is caused by not enough oxygen getting to the baby during the labor process. It is negligent when nurses or doctors don't recognize in time that a baby is in trouble, or don't remove the baby promptly (usually by Caesarian section). Sometimes negligence happens when the medications used to increase contractions is used wrongly and deprives the baby of oxygen

 

Cerebral Palsy is a common form of a disorder that exists either before birth or at birth, also known as a congenital disorder. Sometimes referred to as CP, it can be attributed to a lack of muscle tone and motor skills. Cerebral palsy can also lead to a variety of other medical problems. This includes problems associated with one’s vision, speech, hearing, and ability to learn. No cure exists for this condition; however a person living with the disorder can be helped with therapy, treatment, special equipment, and sometimes surgery.

Types of Cerebral Palsy

  • spastic cerebral palsy: can result in difficulty with movement and stiffness
  • athetoid cerebral palsy: uncontrollable and involuntary movement
  • ataxic cerebral palsy: directly affects one’s balance and depth perception

Because Cerebral Palsy affects muscle control and movement, it is difficult to control simple movements and hard to stand still. It is not a disorder that worsens over time, although some crucial functions are affected when someone has Cerebral Palsy. This includes breathing, eating, learning, and control over bladder and bowel movements.

Causes Of Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy results from injury suffered to specific areas of a developing brain. The injury can happen early on in a pregnancy, during birth, or within the first few years of one’s life. Between 10 and 20 percent of all children who have Cerebral Palsy acquire the disorder after they are born; however the majority of cases involve incidents that take place during pregnancy or at the time of birth. In cases involving children born with Cerebral Palsy, the causes can sometimes be attributed to an avoidable incident that happened before or during birth. When this occurs, medical malpractice or negligence may play a significant role in an infant developing cerebral palsy. An example of this type of negligent behavior is, if the physician or nurse does not do their job properly or take the necessary precautions and an infant does not receive enough oxygen during delivery. This is unacceptable behavior for any member of medical staff, further legal action is highly recommended.

Cerebral palsy falls under an intricate aspect of law due to the fact that there are countless things that still haven’t been figured out pertaining to the disorder. Because of this, qualified testimony is essential to assist in establishing a case. If you believe your child is suffering from Cerebral Palsy on account of negligent behavior from hospital or medical staff, we encourage you to contact the cerebral palsey medical malpractice lawyers  at 800 733 – 5342.

Radiology Malpractice Lawsuits

Radiologists are medical specialists that evaluate and interpret diagnostic films, including sonograms, mammograms, MRIs, CT Scans, ultrasounds and x-rays. The large majority of hospital patients, regardless of their reason for admittance, depend on a radiologist’s interpretation of their films for proper diagnosis and treatment. Consequently, inexperience, error and misinterpretation can have tragic consequences, including severe personal injury and wrongful death.

A diagnostic error can delay appropriate treatment of the patient’s condition. For example, delayed diagnosis of cancer can result in the spread of the disease beyond the point in which medical intervention can help. The progression of a disease can result in more medical bills and pain and suffering for the patient and his or her loved ones. Such errors are especially likely in overworked and understaffed radiology departments, or when images of inferior quality are used for the diagnosis.

Some potential misinterpretations of sonograms, mammograms, MRIs, CT Scans, ultrasounds, and x-rays include:

  • Failure to diagnose a fracture of the arm, wrist, leg, spine, hip or ribs
  • Failure to diagnose the presence of cancer or tumors,
  • Failure to diagnose an ulcer,
  • Failure to diagnose intestinal perforations or internal bleeding,failure to diagnose
  • Failure to diagnose organ perforations,
  • Failure to diagnose prenatal conditions

Surprisingly, despite medical advancement, claims for errors in radiology film interpretations are on the rise in the state of Florida. Recovery for theses type of claims is often significant, because the injuries as the result of diagnostic error are potentially life-threatening. Many of the medical injuries resulting from radiology errors are financially, physically and emotionally exhausting. That's why an experienced Florida attorney is an invaluable resource for patients and loved ones in need.

Lawyers for Misdiagnosis Errors

One of the most common forms of medical malpractice is an error or mistake in diagnosis. An improper diagnosis occurs when a doctor fails to identify the presence of a disease or notes the presence of a disease when the patient is in fact healthy. Diseases that go undetected can result in debilitating and permanent personal injury or even death. For example, a delayed diagnosis of cancer can result in the spread of the disease to a point beyond which medical intervention can help. The progression of a disease can result in substantially higher medical bills, pain and suffering for the patient and his or her loved ones and even death.

Diseases and injuries that are commonly misdiagnosed include:

* Ovarian cancer

* Stroke

* Heart disease, including acute myocardial infarction (heart attack)

* Diabetes

* Lung cancer

* Pulmonary embolism

* Testicular cancer

* Bacterial meningitis

* Cervical cancer

* Prostate cancer

* Breast cancer

* Tuberculosis

* Sepsis

The failure to diagnosis a condition may be caused by improper treatment and testing or by the failure to recognize a patient’s symptoms due to lack of experience, competence, or attentiveness on the part of the doctor, nurse or other hospital staff. While even doctors make mistakes, patients should not have to pay the physical and financial price for those errors.
