By Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP. posted in Failure to Diagnose on Monday, May 20, 2019.

A doctor’s failure to diagnose a patient's medical condition is the most common reason why patients sue their doctors. This statistic also includes a doctor misdiagnosing a patient and/or delaying their diagnosis.

What is Failure to Diagnose?

Failure to diagnose is caused by a doctor’s negligence or failure to take the specific steps necessary to determine the nature of your illness. This negligence then causes you harm, as treatment is either delayed or isn’t administered at all, due to there being no record of it.

What is a Pregnancy-Related Injury?

A pregnancy-related injury is an injury that a woman sustains during pregnancy, at delivery, or shortly after delivery. These injuries can range from mild to severe with the worst cases resulting in death - known as maternal mortality. 700 women die each year in the United States due to pregnancy-related injuries resulting in maternal mortality.

What is Maternal Mortality?

Maternal Mortality is a term used to explain the deaths of women during their pregnancies and childbirth. Startingly, pregnant women in the United Starts are more likely to be at risk for maternal mortality than in any other developed country.

Wrong Site Surgical Errors

Surgical errors have been commonplace since the dawn of medicine, however, in the 21st century age of rapid innovation, such errors are now unacceptable and more likely to result in successful medical malpractice lawsuits than ever before.

What is a Wrong Site Surgical Error?

A wrong-site error is a surgical error that involves surgeons operating on the wrong area of your body. This type of surgical error is severe, as its aftereffects can be both debilitating and deadly.

What Is Cerebral Palsy?

Cerebral Palsy is a neurological condition which commonly presents through disordered movement, muscle tone, and posture. It is caused by damage affecting your child’s developing brain before and/or during birth - this is why it is considered a birth injury.

What separates cerebral palsy from other birth injuries is that its effect on functional abilities varies significantly. This means that the medical costs associated with the condition will also vary, and the emotional strain on you and your family will be affected as well. For example, some individuals with cerebral palsy may have an average intellectual capacity whereas other individuals may not.

By Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP. posted in Hospital Negligence on Monday, May 06, 2019.

Oftentimes, there is confusion regarding hospital negligence and other forms of medical malpractice. Unlike other types of medical negligence, hospital negligence is not related to individual physicians; but it involves improper conduct on the part of hospital administration or hospital employees which results in physical injury to you or a family member.

By Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP. posted in Surgical Errors on Friday, May 03, 2019.

Whilst many errors in healthcare are inevitable, surgical errors can often be the most debilitating. These events are termed “never events,” as they are errors which should never have occurred, and are indicative of alarming underlying safety issues.

What Are Surgical Errors?

In short, surgical errors are preventable mistakes made during surgery which can lead to injury, disability, or even death.

By Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP. posted in Wrongful Death on Friday, April 26, 2019.

What Is Wrongful Death?

Wrongful Death occurs when you, or someone you know, is killed because of a healthcare practitioner’s negligence or misconduct - whether intentional or not.

It is different from medical malpractice in that medical malpractice occurs when your healthcare provider is negligent, and you are harmed but your injury isn’t fatal. Wrongful death, on the other hand, occurs when you, or someone you know, dies as a direct result of medical negligence.  

By Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP. posted in Failure to Diagnose on Monday, April 22, 2019.

In 2013, Johns Hopkins researchers found that diagnostic errors - such as failure to diagnose - accounted for the largest fraction of medical malpractice claim payouts. Diagnostic errors also resulted in the most severe patient harm and the highest total penalty payouts.

In fact, Doctor David E. Newman-Toker at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine argues that diagnostic errors could easily be the biggest patient safety and medical malpractice problem in the United States.

By Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP. posted in Anesthesia Error on Friday, April 19, 2019.

Anesthesia is one of the fundamental components of any medical procedure. There is great risk involved when administering anesthesia, but it a risk that generally has to be taken in order for certain medical procedures to be conducted successfully, and so that you do not feel any pain throughout.

What Are Anesthesia Errors?

Anesthesia errors are a form of medical malpractice which is due to medical negligence. It occurs when an anesthesiologist, or another medical practitioner, fails to administer, or incorrectly administers, anesthesia during your medical procedure. These errors can result in injury, disability, and even death.
