How can you make sure your doctor listens to you?

Few things are as frustrating as going to the doctor with a problem you have been thinking about nonstop for weeks and feeling like your doctor doesn't even listen to you. This is a very common issue. According to one study, while most doctors (75 percent) think that they communicate well with patients, a mere 21 percent of those patients actually agree.

Why do dentists get sued for malpractice?

The fear that many Americans experience when they think about having to go sit in a dentist chair to have their teeth worked on doesn't just come from nowhere. Instead, many of those who are scared to go the dentist may have experienced a traumatic situation at some point or know someone else who has.

A surgeon's 'bad day' can end a life

If there is one thing we can all agree upon when it comes to the medical field, it is that surgery is an incredibly scary idea. The human body is so vastly complex that even the tiniest mistake or twitch in a doctor's wrist could lead to severe or life-changing damage to the patient. And for the patient, there is no way to ever feel comfortable or happy about being put under the effects of anesthesia.

The various ways a medical malpractice case can come about

When you hear the phrase "medical malpractice," what do you picture? In all likelihood, most people will think of a surgical error or a doctor botching a basic procedure. These are obvious cases of medical malpractice, and just because they are the newsworthy and eye-catching, it doesn't make them any less legitimate as cases. But what these examples do is obscure the other equally legitimate cases that qualify as medical malpractice and that what many people suffer from every year.

Birth injury case leads to astounding $40 million award

Childbirth is supposed to be a wondrous and happy occasion that completes a family. It is supposed to make two parents elated in ways they have never felt before, and the medical process of delivering a baby is supposed to be a highly protected procedure that ensures the safe and healthy delivery of the child.

Experience in representation needed when medical errors occur

Even the most well-intended of medical procedures or applications of medical care can turn out to be disastrous. It doesn't matter if the medical professionals handling these cases are incredibly experienced or relatively new. The fact of the matter is, anyone can make a mistake. Botched surgeries or flubbed IV placements can cause horrible medical conditions in patients -- and it could even lead to fatal circumstances for the patients.
