Hospitals named in med mal suits in connection with fraud charges

Investigation continues in a case of health care fraud out of Detroit involving a physician who has pleaded guilty to putting patients through unnecessary treatments in order to be able to submit fraudulent insurance claims.

Researchers from Princeton University recently offered a new theory regarding the genesis and onset of autism.

Patients can face challenges pursuing malpractice claims

One of the challenges with medical malpractice litigation is that it is not always easy for those who are harmed by a health care provider to successfully pursue a case for medical malpractice, even when the merits of their case are strong. Part of the reason for this is that health care providers usually have greater resources at their disposal with which to pursue litigation, whereas patients very often don’t have much in terms of financial resources. Medical malpractice litigation can be expensive, particularly if the provider is not open to settlement and is bent on defending his or her case at all costs.
