Anesthesia Error Alleged in 5 Lawsuits After Cataract Surgery

According to the National Eye Institute of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, one of the most successful and safest surgical procedures is cataract surgery. It says that most Americans, including some in Houston Texas, have cataracts by the age of 80. Many have undergone successful surgery to remove cataracts. A recent report about lawsuits alleging anesthesia error shows that, unfortunately, not all these procedures are carried out without problems. On May 20, 2014, 45 patients were seen by a doctor at a cataract and laser center in another state. Five of the people who had corrective vision [...]

Hospital Malpractice Lawsuit Follows Death of 93 Year Old Woman

On behalf of Hastings Law Firm posted in Hospital Negligence on Monday, August 22, 2016. Most Texas residents prepare themselves for the day their aging parents die, knowing that it is inevitable. However, if an elderly parent's death is caused by the negligence of a medical professional -- regardless of how old the parent is -- it is simply unacceptable. After a suspicious death of a 93-year-old woman in another state in 2013, a hospital was cited for improper procedures by that state's Department of Public Health. The deceased woman's daughter recently filed a hospital malpractice lawsuit against the facility [...]

Mother’s Permanent Injuries Lead to Award in Birth Injury Lawsuit

During the birthing process in Texas and other states, both mother and child have a right to proper medical care. This was underscored by a $16 million verdict that was awarded by a jury in another state for a birth injury lawsuit filed by a mother.

However, this case serves to underscore that the rights of women should never be compromised. The case arose in 2012 when the Houston mother was convinced by an advertising campaign of the defendant [...]

The Impacts of a Birth Injury or Trauma

The entire family suffers when a birth injury occurs. This can include parents, siblings and extended family as well. Modern medical advances have had many positive impacts on pregnancy and childbirth in Texas. However, those advances by no means eliminate the reality that these can be complex medical situations. When complications arise, prompt and appropriate medical attention is needed and can be life-altering. The lack of proper response, including any delay in treatment, can cause long-term disabilities or even death for mothers and babies. Families who suffer these traumatic incidents must grapple with new expectations for their futures and the [...]

$925,000 Settlement Reached in Medical Malpractice Lawsuit

When Texas residents suffer medical complications that they believe resulted from the negligence of medical personnel and/or the facilities that employ them, they may consider pursuing a claim for monetary damages against them. Navigating medical malpractice lawsuits can be complicated, and some victims may hesitate to proceed with a claim. However, with experienced legal counsel, victims may find that not all cases go to court, as hospitals or doctors sometimes offer to settle such claims out of court. In a case in another state, a doctor and a hospital offered a settlement amount of $925,000 to the family of a [...]
