Medical Malpractice Lawsuits Help Everyone
Talk radio hosts and insurance lobbyists have made their careers criticizing people who file suit – as if using the courts guaranteed by the Constitution was dirty. Who is funding all this talk? People who get sued and their insurance companies, of course.
Powerful people and their insurance companies don’t like being sued, but much more is at stake than the convenience of a negligent doctor or the profits of an insurance company.
Wrongful Death Lawsuits
At my firm we handle a variety of Wrongful Death lawsuits. Because we work on so many medical malpractice cases, most of the Wrongful Death suits we handle are also medical malpractice cases.
Just yesterday, I had a client call us about a medical malpractice case, but she wanted to know if we also handle Wrongful Death cases. Since many people have asked this question over the years, I thought now would be a good time to talk about what a Wrongful Death case is.
Common Surgery--Dangerous If Rules Not Followed
One of the most common surgeries performed in America is the removal of a woman’s uterus—an operation called a “hysterectomy”. Tens of thousands of American women have this operation done every year. Advances in medical equipment have made this operation much safer and easier on the women patients—when the new equipment is used correctly.
Chain Dentistry--A Dangerous Trend
There has been a striking change in how dental services are delivered in this country over just the last ten years. As you have no doubt noticed, there has been a sudden proliferation of dental chains—places where you don’t know who the dentist is providing your care, any more than you know who wrapped your hamburger at the last McDonald’s you stopped at.
The way these chains make their profits is a recipe for dentist medical malpractice, and we’re seeing a lot of it.
The “Conspiracy of Silence” in Medical Malpractice Cases
You have heard the claims: “Malpractice suits are out of control”. “Good doctors are getting sued all the time”. And most of all this one “We should have damage caps to prevent frivolous lawsuits”. This consistent, relentless drumbeat of commercials and lobbyists is all paid for by doctors’ groups and their insurance companies. The goal is not to stop “frivolous lawsuits”–the system does a great job of that already.
