A patient has filed a lawsuit against a doctor and orthopaedics center alleging negligence in medical care. According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 2014, she sustained physical injuries in connection with a prosthetic knee and related infection. The plaintiff contends that the defendants failed to inform her of risks, failed to properly treat an infection, failed to remove the prosthetic knee in a timely fashion and failed to inform of complications of an infection treatment. She seeks an undisclosed amount in damages.

The physical, emotional, and financial impact following a serious infection can be devastating. In addition to significant financial losses due to medical expenses and lost income, many victims are left permanently disabled by chronic pain or limited mobility. If injuries resulting from a misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose could have been prevented, the victim may be entitled to compensation. It is important to contact a medical malpractice attorney to determine one’s rights.

The time it takes to complete a medical malpractice claim depends on the complexity and strength of the case. The last thing this woman or any medical malpractice victim needs is to worry about is how to keep up with financial obligations. When plaintiffs are facing mounting bills and few options, litigation funding could be the perfect solution.

Nursing home residents are typically older and in poorer health than seniors citizens who live on their own or with loved ones. They are also typically more prone to falling. However, a well-run and fully staffed and trained nursing home should be able to prevent the majority of these incidents. Unfortunately, nursing home neglect is still an all too common problem. When issues of neglect such as falls occur, residents can suffer physically and mentally as a result.

On the night of August 10, natural gas built up in a basement utility room at an apartment complex in Silver Springs, Maryland, leading to an explosion and fire that killed seven people. Several others were injured as they jumped from balconies or descended down burning, crumbling staircases.

Investigators are still working to unravel what caused the disaster, but say the explosion was caused by a gas leak in the meter room of the building that built up until the explosion was sparked. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said a complete investigation is ongoing and expected to continue into next year.

In the meantime, more lawsuits have been filed alleging that blame rests with the company that managed the complex and the utility that supplied it with natural gas. According to the lawsuits, both defendants had been warned “on several occasions” about the smell of gas in apartments in the summer months before the tragedy. “Defendants deliberately disregarded the danger to the property’s residents, and undertook no steps to repair the condition,” say the new lawsuits. The suits contend that the gas company failed to ensure the security of residents by not: repairing the gas leak, properly investigating and identifying the gas leak, warning residents, and/or calling for an evacuation. The suit also claims that the utility failed to perform routine inspections that would have uncovered the potential dangers and saved the lives and property of residents.
