Woman claims medical malpractice resulted in terminal cancer

Many Louisiana residents know what it feels like to hear a doctor deliver a cancer diagnosis. Likely, most people who have received such a frightening message find some comfort in knowing their health care professional will use his or her medical knowledge and experience to reach the best possible outcome and that he or she will maintain open communication with the patient regarding treatment options. Unfortunately, a woman from another state discovered this is not always the case, and she now faces certain death from her disease. She is currently suing the doctor responsible for her care, as well as the medical center at which he is head, claiming medical malpractice resulted in her suffering from terminal cancer.

Jury awards man $8.5 million due to failure to diagnose cancer

Most Louisiana residents, at some point in their lives, have had to visit a hospital or medical facility for testing, and of course, everyone hopes for an accurate and timely diagnosis. Sometimes, a patient will receive bad news in the form of a cancer diagnosis, but if a doctor delivers such news early enough, the problem can often be resolved. Other times, however, a doctor's failure to diagnose a serious medical condition can lead to many more problems. Unfortunately, this seems to be what happened to a man from another state who was recently awarded $8.5 million in a medical malpractice lawsuit against two doctors who treated him several years ago.

Quadriplegic awarded $56 million in medical malpractice lawsuit

Many Louisiana residents probably take for granted their ability to walk with relative ease and freedom. For some, not until mobility is suddenly taken away from them do they realize how much it was appreciated. Unfortunately, surgical procedures can sometimes result in such a loss, and such situations often have a significant effect on a person's life. Recently, a woman in another state and her husband were awarded $56 million in a medical malpractice lawsuit in which she alleged a surgical procedure she had undergone 10 years ago had left her a quadriplegic.

Woman sues pharmacy claiming medical malpractice led to death

Most Louisiana residents have had to visit a pharmacy to have a prescription filled, and in fact, some people requiring medication for a chronic condition do so regularly. Pharmacists must complete years of education and training in order to properly and safely perform their job duties, so clients should feel safe knowing they will receive the correct type and dosage of medication, along with appropriate instructions for use. However, occasionally, a prescription will be filled incorrectly, and when this happens, the patient's life may be in danger. As an example, a man in another state died when he was given a different medication than his doctor intended, and the executrix of his estate is now suing the pharmacy and medical team, accusing them of medical malpractice among other allegations.

Medical malpractice lawsuit results in $3 million award

When a person undergoes any sort of medical test in Louisiana or elsewhere, unless told otherwise, he or she likely assumes the physician has recommended the test as a necessary and relatively safe diagnostic tool. Unfortunately, in the case of one woman from another state, this assumption proved inaccurate. The woman died a few days after attending what she thought was a routine doctor's appointment, and a jury recently awarded her daughter $3 million in a medical malpractice lawsuit against the hospital and the cardiologist who treated her. The award has since been reduced to $2.6 million, and the doctor was dropped from the suit.

Lawsuit accuses fertility clinic of medical malpractice

Many Louisiana couples can relate to the concept of struggling to conceive a baby. In some cases, people in this situation will try various methods in their attempts to achieve pregnancy. Such was the case with a couple based in another state who pursued in vitro fertilization through a reputable fertility clinic. After the woman gave birth to two baby boys who were not related to either her or her husband, they filed a civil lawsuit accusing the clinic and its owners for medical malpractice.

Former patients accuse psychiatrist of medical malpractice

Many Louisiana residents have likely experienced depression at one time or another, and for some people, sadly, this is a chronic condition that they struggle with throughout their lives. Many people seek the guidance of a professional to help them deal with this challenging disease, and anyone who has been in this type of situation can attest to the fact that trust is a crucial component of such a relationship. However, sometimes, a mental health professional cannot be trusted and may engage in questionable activities when dealing with patients. This seems to be what happened when three women filed medical malpractice lawsuits against a prominent psychiatrist in another state.

Incorrectly inserted catheter may have caused patient injuries

Many Louisiana residents know the fun and freedom that can come with retirement. Retirees finally have time to indulge in hobbies, travel and leisure activities, and everyone hopes to remain relatively healthy to allow them to continue enjoying themselves well into old age. Unfortunately, all too often, a senior's golden years are interrupted by a medical emergency, and sometimes, during the course of treatment, medical professionals cause unnecessary patient injuries.

Childhood misdiagnosis leads to medical malpractice lawsuit

As many Louisiana parents know, childhood can be fraught with challenging times, sometimes including injury and illness. Of course, in most cases, the parents of ill children welcome professional advice and will do whatever they need to do to reduce or eliminate the discomfort or pain their child is feeling. However, sometimes, a physician diagnoses a problem and prescribes treatment for reasons other than healing. Such appears to be the case in an incident involving a 26-year-old woman who is about to go on trial against a doctor and the medical center that employed him, claiming she has suffered from medical malpractice and negligence.

Medical malpractice suit alleges sponge left in patient's body

Anyone in Louisiana or elsewhere who is undergoing any sort of surgical procedure expects medical professionals to provide detailed information about any risks involved with the surgery. Patients can then make informed medical decisions and will also know what to expect if they experience any unusual results following the procedure. A woman in another state filed a medical malpractice lawsuit alleging she was not well informed prior to an operation she underwent in 2015. Recently, a judge set a two-week jury trial for June of next year for the case.
