Medically Related Wrongful Death

Until recently, prior to filing a lawsuit against a medical provider who committed medical malpractice, a claim first had to be presented to the Medical Dental Screening Panel (“the Panel”). The Panel consists of doctors, attorneys and hospital administrators. After submission of written materials by the claimant and the respondent, the Panel would determine whether or not a reasonable probability of medical malpractice existed. The conclusions of the Panel are not binding. That is to say, a lawsuit may be filed regardless of the...

Mistakes Made During Surgery

Negligence in this context essentially means the failure of the health care provider to use the reasonable care, skill or knowledge ordinarily used by health care professionals under similar circumstances. If you or someone you know believes that there were mistakes made during surgery, you may have a medical malpractice case either against the doctor, the hospital, or both. If your informed consent was not obtained for the procedure in advance, you may also have a separate cause of action against the medical providers. In a recent report put...
