Lawsuit claims failure to diagnose led to doctor's death

When a college student from Maryland elsewhere finally completes his or her studies and is awarded a degree, the world is an exciting place. In May 2013, one young woman from another state had just been awarded her medical degree when she began experiencing painful symptoms. She went to the same hospital that she was scheduled to begin her residency in a few months for treatment. Unfortunately, in a recent lawsuit, the woman's parents claim the medical staff's failure to diagnose what they claim was an easily treatable blood clot condition led to her death.

Toddler's death spurs medical malpractice suit

Everyone who has undergone a medical procedure, even a procedure that is relatively minor, typically must sign certain disclosures about risks. While medical professionals make it clear that there is almost always the potential for unintended consequences, few people in Maryland expect that a routine procedure could lead to death. Unfortunately, the death of a small child undergoing what her parents likely believed to be a relatively routine dental procedure resulted in her death and a medical malpractice suit.

Maryland family may qualify for workers' compensation

Almost all jobs involve some degree of risk. Even jobs that are seemingly completely safe could result in the need for treatment for injuries suffered on-the-job. In order to help workers and their families in the event of a workplace accident, states such as Maryland require most employers to provide workers' compensation benefits. The family of a man who was killed recently while working likely qualifies for such benefits.
