Is there a clear-cut way to prove medical negligence?

The relationship between a doctor and patient can be idiosyncratic. The law attempts to define a professional standard of care through prevailing industry standards. Experts may attempt to articulate that standard by testifying to recommended treatment options. Deviations might be characterized as medical negligence, perhaps giving rise to a medical malpractice lawsuit in the event of patient injury. Yet the fact remains that differences of opinion among doctors can arise.

When does a doctor's duty of care begin for pregnant patients?

An expecting mother’s worst fears may be realized when a doctor informs her of a birth injury or defect. Yet that announcement may be only the beginning of a long ordeal. Trying to determine whether a birth defect resulted from medical negligence may require an extensive investigation.

Can car accident victims recover for emotional trauma?

Readers may recall the truck accident last summer that critically injured actor Tracy Morgan and took the life of one of his friends. The star recently spoke with the media about his injuries and struggle to overcome the emotional trauma from losing a close friend. His account is a good reminder that personal injuries in the wake of a motor vehicle accident may also include emotional trauma and/or psychological conditions, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, severe depression, anxiety disorder or other conditions.
