3 types of potentially fatal medication errors

Doctors, nurses and medical personnel must take great care to safeguard the health and safety of patients when prescribing and administering pharmaceutical drugs. Whether the drugs are ingested by the patient via pill, patch, liquid or injection, safety needs to be the number one priority to avoid the potentially fatal consequences associated with medication mix-ups, errors and mistakes.

How do I measure the value of a wrongful death case?

There's no amount of money -- and no amount of litigation -- that will ever replace a loved one lost because of a negligent or unlawfully-acting party. However, Indiana courts do seek to compensate close family members financially in a successfully-navigated wrongful death action because, unfortunately, it's the only way to approach some semblance of justice.

Does Johnson & Johnson baby powder cause cancer?

Parents powder their babies with it and adults powder their bodies with it, but is Johnson & Johnson's baby powder safe? According to a St. Louis jury, which heard testimony and viewed the results of medical and scientific studies, baby powder is far from safe. In fact, it's cancerous. The jury decided that Johnson & Johnson talcum products caused numerous women to contract ovarian cancer -- some of whom died because of the cancer -- and awarded 22 women nearly $5 billion in damages.

Understanding the purpose of a wrongful death lawsuit

A wrongful death lawsuit is a kind of lawsuit you can file if you lose a loved one as a result of another person's negligence or misconduct. For example, if a drunk driver hits your mom while she crosses the road, you could file a claim for her death. Similarly, if you lose a loved one because of a serial killer, then that person could be held liable for your loved one's death.

Losing a loved one: What you should know about filing a claim

While death is a normal part of life, there are times when it comes prematurely. It's never easy to see a child pass away or to watch someone die before he or she should. When a death is a result of a person's negligence or reckless behavior, it's important for families to have a chance to pursue a claim for compensation. A civil lawsuit or insurance claim gives you a chance to seek compensation from the person who made errors that cost your loved one his or her life.

What do you need to know before filing a wrongful death case?

Wrongful death lawsuits are most often filed by those who are closely released to the deceased. The person who died may have lost his or her life due to negligence or misconduct. As a result, the family believes the situation falls under state wrongful death statutes.

Baby's death draws attention to protocols at hospital in Indiana

When a child passes away unexpectedly, parents deserve answers. If it turns out that negligence or errors played a role in the child's death, then it's within the parents' rights to seek justice by asking for the doctor or medical team to be held accountable for their actions.

What purpose does a wrongful death lawsuit have?

A wrongful death lawsuit is a lawsuit in which the family of the deceased attempts to collect compensation for the death of their loved one. The lawsuit itself alleges that the person who killed the deceased did so out of negligence or misconduct. The lawsuit seeks lost wages, compensation for the loss of companionship, funeral expenses and other financial losses.
