By |December 4th, 2018|medical malpractice|0 Comments

We expect the medical professionals who take care of us to faithfully execute their responsibility to provide us with a proper duty of care.

Although indirect regulation exists at [...]

FDA-Approved Drugs Still Have Risks

By |October 10th, 2018|Dangerous Drugs, medical malpractice, Product Liability|0 Comments

In order to be sold in the United States, drugs must be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Violence in Healthcare Settings Considered a Public Health Crisis

By |September 26th, 2018|hospital negligence, medical malpractice|0 Comments

Hospitals and doctors are often the first to deal with injuries associated with gun violence. Despite this, many hospitals do not have the appropriate protective equipment or scanning systems to deal with potential violence. For this reason, the American Medical Association officially considers this a public health crisis. Recent research indicates that more than twice as many hospitals have been the setting for gun violence as compared to cyberattacks and hacking. Furthermore, nearly one-quarter of healthcare [...]
