Birth injuries: Louisiana parents may pursue legal action

Parents in Louisiana and throughout the nation are often devastated when their childbirth experiences become tragedies due to medical errors. Birth injuries often result in serious permanent damage to infants. Many such instances are entirely preventable and are caused by negligence.

Nursing negligence claim filed after woman suffers from fall

Many Louisiana residents will, at some point in their lives, take up residence in nursing homes or other assisted living facilities. Upon doing so, they have the right to assume that reasonable care and precautions will be taken to protect their safety and physical well-being. Sadly, throughout the nation, there have been many instances of nursing negligence that have resulted in legal claims being filed against those whose substandard care has caused injury or illness to others.

Study - Incomplete Adverse Event Reports by Drug Manufacturers

Adverse event reporting of injuries is of monumental value and importance for drugs approved by the FDA.  These reports are the basis for modifications and even additions of new or supplemental warnings after drugs have been approved by the FDA and placed on the market.

Seeking full recovery for damages caused by surgical errors

There is a certain amount of risk inherent in any type of surgical procedure. Doctors, nurses and other medical staff members are obligated to adhere to strict protocol and accepted standards in order to protect the safety of patients inasmuch as it is reasonably possible. In Louisiana and other hospitals throughout the nation, patients continue to suffer often devastating injuries due to surgical errors that in many cases could have been prevented.

Legal recourse re birth injuries in Louisiana

Not every woman admitted to the hospital to give birth has a good experience. Sometimes, doctor negligence often results in birth injuries that may cause permanent damage to a newborn infant. Louisiana parents may seek recourse through the legal system, as one family in another state recently found when the court awarded them $30 million.

$2.5 Million Jury Award in Risperdal Case

A Philadelphia jury recently awarded $2.5 million in damages to a 20-year old man who developed gynecomastia (enhancement of male breasts) after taking the prescription drug risperdal.  The jury found that Janssen, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, failed to adequately warn users of this side-effect of the drug.  The plaintiff was represented at trial by the Philadelphia firm of Kline & Specter, PC.  If you or someone you know has experienced side effects from taking risperdal, Gainsburgh Benjamin's products liability attorneys are available for an initial case screening.

Parents take action against reported hospital negligence

New Orleans parents often face legal challenges regarding substandard medical care. A recent situation in another state has resulted in a hospital negligence lawsuit being filed by parents of a minor. The patient involved is a 17-year-old girl who was ordered into state custody three years ago. Her parents reportedly aggressively fought for her return home, which took place when a judge ruled in their favor in 2014.
