Man and wife receive $1.5 million in medical malpractice case

An out-of-state jury recently awarded a man and his wife $1.5 million as a result of a verdict in a medical malpractice lawsuit. The suit was against a medical center's resident, whose misdiagnosis of the man's injury cost him the use of his hand. In Maryland in situations like these, where medical professionals perform their jobs negligently, victims are typically entitled to file a medical malpractice suit against them and any other responsible parties that may have been responsible.

Medical malpractice re fertility, abortion procedure

An out-of-state couple's dreams of having another child were dashed after they learned that the fertility doctor who'd been treating the wife made a mistake.
