Anesthesia errors can result in significant harm

For a variety of reasons, invasive surgeries often require the use of anesthesia. By using anesthesia, a medical professional can better ensure that a patient doesn't feel pain, remains immobile during the operation and remains unconscious throughout the procedure. The drug's effectiveness lies in its ability to leave a patient in what is essentially a medically induced coma. Despite popular conceptions, the use of anesthesia does not merely put one to sleep.

Did something go wrong during your gallbladder surgery?

Did you know that gallbladder disease is one of the most common ailments of the digestive system? For such a small organ, the gallbladder can cause a great deal of pain, discomfort and frustration. This organ's function is to store bile, which is a greenish fluid excreted by the liver. From there, bile travels through bile ducts to the small intestine to aid in digestion.

Texas doctor sued for providing wrong diagnoses

As medical technology and research continues to advance, new treatment options become available to patients. Although these options may be highly effective in treating some injuries and illnesses, those same treatments may be extremely harmful to those who are subjected to them but who do not possess the medical condition the treatment is meant to address. This is especially true when it comes to cancer treatment.

How is colon cancer detected?

There are a variety of cancers out there that can pose a significant health risk to unsuspecting Texans. The best way to combat these diseases is to catch them early and seek aggressive treatment as soon as they are detected. Medical professionals have a number of recommendations with regard to when certain cancer screening should occur and with what frequency, but the effectiveness of these tests are wholly dependent upon the medical professionals who conduct them.

Neonatal strokes can cause significant long-term damage

Most parents in Texas are fortunate enough to experience the birth of their child without major complications. This should be the norm, after all, since doctors and nurses go through extensive education and training in an attempt to ensure that they can safely and effectively treat their patients. However, issues commonly arise during birth, sometimes resulting in birth injuries that can have a tremendous effect on a victim's physical well-being, as well and the emotional and financial well-being of the victim's family. When it can be determined that such harm has been caused by the negligence of another, a medical malpractice claim may be justified.

Medical malpractice and vicarious liability

Texans who are harmed by a medical professional oftentimes want to hold that individual accountable. After all, in many instances the harm caused to an innocent patient can be traced back the actions or inactions of a single individual. This is true in instances of a failure to diagnose, a surgical error and birth injuries. As we have discussed often on this blog, when this happens, a victim can pursue a medical malpractice claim in hopes of recovering compensation for his or her damages. But what happens when those damages are so significant that the medical professional responsible for the harm is unable to pay for the full extent of damage caused?
