Lawsuit claims surgical error led to loss of woman’s extremities

Very rarely are surgical complications anticipated, and even when they are, Queens residents may assume that they will be minor enough to be able to be corrected with additional interventions. However, in many cases, complications following surgery can leave those suffering from them to face life-altering consequences, which often stem from conditions that may be unrelated to the initial problem for which they sought surgical treatment in the first place. If it is believed that one’s complications are a direct result of a doctor or surgeon’s error, than he or she may feel justified in initiating action based on that assumed negligence.

Was your nerve injury due to negligence?

When you go in for surgery in Kew Gardens, you likely assume that the only risks that you face are those that are outlined by your surgeon before your procedure. Yet what if nerve damage was not listed amongst those risks, yet you still ended up experiencing it after your surgery? Could that mean that the damage was caused by your surgeon?

Should you report abuse to nursing home administrators?

Like most in Kew Gardens, you likely would not trust the care of your elderly or infirm loved one to a nursing home or care center unless you felt completely comfortable with a facility and its staff. Yet your satisfaction may not diminish his or chances of experiencing abuse. If your family or friend confides in you that abuse is indeed happening, or if you suspect that it is, who should you report those concerns to?

PTSD in new mothers

When discussing birth injuries, many in Queens may think that such incidents only refer to issues involving newborns. However, birthing mothers can also be subject to such injuries. It may be easy to quantify the physical effect an injury can have on a woman, yet what about the emotional toll? Post-traumatic stress disorder is becoming an ever-increasing diagnosis amongst mothers. In many cases, the women experiencing it may not be suffering physical injuries at all, but rather are being impacted from seeing their babies harmed.

What expectations should you have for your surgery?

As a consumer in Kew Gardens, you may be accustomed to walking into business establishments and seeing signs conveying the message “Satisfaction Guaranteed.” Hospitals and medical centers are also businesses, yet they tend to not make such promises. Why is that? Your satisfaction with your treatment is indeed something that healthcare providers value, yet your not being happy with the results of a procedure may often not be enough to warrant a medical malpractice claim. This raises the question of whether or not there should be any expectation of results when you do you receive care.

Examining the concept of location-based decision-making

Most people in Queens seek medical care under the assumption that no matter the conditions or circumstances surrounding their visits, the healthcare providers that see them will be able to correctly diagnose their injuries and/or ailments. However, given the many different settings in which care is rendered, one might assume that the conditions present could impact a provider’s decision-making.

Other costs associated with buying a house

Buying a home is one of the single-most effective methods of building wealth over time, but it does not always come cheap. The price you ultimately pay for your home often far exceeds the asking price, and while some reasons why are obvious - such as the fact that you must pay interest on your loan - there are other fees involved that are less well-known. Some of these may include:

Expert witness testimony cited as an issue in lawsuit dismissal

Cases of negligence against hospitals and healthcare providers in New York City may often be difficult to argue simply because such disputes come down to the word of educated medical professionals against laymen. To help bolster their claims, plaintiffs in these cases may be wise to seek out other qualified clinicians to testify as experts on their behalf. The key to successfully using such testimony is ensuring that such witnesses meet the qualifications of being considered experts. If they do not, then one risks having any evidence or testimony they offer being discredited.

How can you tell if a loved one is malnourished or dehydrated?

Most in Kew Gardens make the difficult decision to entrust the care of their loved ones to nursing homes only after reaching the point of believing that their needs have become too complicated. If you have an aging or ill parent, spouse, child or friend that needs constant care, the task of administering medications or assisting with physical therapy may seem daunting. Hopefully, you can trust the staff at your loved one’s facility to successfully perform those activities. Yet one thing you may not worry about is that his or her basic needs are seen to, such as eating and drinking. However, statistics suggest that even those expectations are not always met.
