Essentials to know about a medical malpractice claim

When a patient visits a healthcare provider, they should receive a high standard of care. Unfortunately, medical professionals can make mistakes that may result in long-term complications to a person’s physical and emotional health. If you are the victim of medical negligence, you may be able to file a medical malpractice claim to receive compensation for any suffering you experience as a result of your poor medical care.

Threats of Self-Harm Should Always Be Taken Seriously

This week the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Morbidity and Mortality (CDC) reported that suicidal ideation among young people is higher than it was a year ago, with as many as one in four people ages 18 through 24 having seriously considered suicide in the 30 days. The CDC also reported that 11% of adults surveyed had seriously considered suicide in the past 30 days. Studies have demonstrated that suicide thoughts and attempts among transgender people are significantly higher than that of the general population of the United States.

The Injustice of Medical Malpractice Caps

McKeen & Associates attorneys Brian McKeen and Kenneth Lee recently obtained a $550,000 settlement for a wrongful death arising out of the negligent placement of what was supposed to be a central venous catheter. As the name suggests, this catheter is to be placed into a vein. The inexperienced resident placed it in the decedent's carotid artery, which increases the risk of stroke. This placement caused a blood clot resulting in a massive stroke, brain damage, and ultimately, her death.
