Orlando medical malpractice attorney
A Florida mother whose son was diagnosed with cerebral palsy shortly after he was born has filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against her obstetrician and the hospital where the birth took place. The suit alleges that her son’s condition was caused by a birth injury and that her doctor’s negligence during birth and delivery caused the injuries that led to cerebral palsy. The suit cites numerous examples of medical malpractice and negligence, including her doctor’s failure to notice and correct the baby’s elevated heart rate prior to delivery.
A Florida man recently filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against NCH Downtown Naples Hospital after he was seriously injured by a surgical fire while undergoing pacemaker surgery. The man had his pacemaker surgically implanted on March 19, 2008. When he woke up after the surgery, he discovered second-degree burns all over his chest, neck and one shoulder. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), around 650 people are injured each year in surgical fires, a relatively unknown but potentially deadly and disfiguring risk in the surgical wards of hospitals.
