Malpractice payment averages rise in 2017

It is usually good news when you hear that the number of malpractice payments have reduced overall. What does it mean, though, when those payments increase? It could mean that fewer, but more serious, incidents occur or that there are really fewer serious cases overall.

Pressure sores: What to know about this preventable condition

Pressure sores, also known as bedsores or pressure ulcers, are injuries that occur due to pressure on a bone, skin and tissues over time. Since there is no circulation, the sores develop. Over time, this could lead to several serious complications.

Filing a medical malpractice claim in Connecticut: Requirements

You're completely certain that your medical provider made a mistake in your diagnosis. As a result, you took medications that you never should have had in your body. You lost your hair, went through months of weakness and only now are beginning to recover.

Can you sue if you're hurt in an emergency room?

When you go to the emergency room, you're in the most dire need. You're in pain, feeling sick and aren't thinking clearly. You don't want to wait any longer, and you'd do whatever someone tells you if it would help you feel like yourself again.

Informed consent keeps you safe and is a necessary document

Informed consent, in a medical setting, means that a patient or his or her representative has been given all the information necessary regarding a medical procedure or treatment. He or she must understand the potential risks and complications. Typically, an informed consent is a piece of paperwork that you must sign before an operation or treatment plan can begin.

File a claim as soon as possible to avoid running out of time

If you're hurt by someone in the medical community, there is a chance that you can file a medical malpractice claim. If you decide that you want to do so, then you need to understand the time limits that are in place. If you do not file your lawsuit within a certain time frame, you may lose your right to do so forever.

Did Connecticut ban conversion therapy?

Medical malpractice comes in many forms, but one thing that you may not have thought about is how changing laws can impact malpractice cases. For example, in the past, anti-gay therapy was used to try to convert those with homosexual tendencies to heterosexuality. This was a horrible treatment that left many people suicidal and at risk of injuring themselves.
