Medical Malpractice Claim Against a Philadelphia Hospital Emergency Room
Our client went to the emergency room of a hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania complaining of severe headaches and garbled speech. The emergency room doctor sent her home with a diagnosis of adverse drug reaction. Later in the morning her condition worsened and she went back to the same hospital. At that time, it was determined that she had sustained a stroke. As a result of the delay in diagnosing and treating the stroke, our client sustained severe and permanent neurological injuries.
Medical Malpractice Claim Against a Philadelphia Hospital for Death of a Baby
Our clients were the parents of a nine month old baby who was brought to an emergency room of a large Philadelphia hospital. The emergency room staff was advised that the child was running a fever, was irritable, lethargic, had noisy breathing and had chills. Although tests were done which showed that the child had pneumonia, the hospital staff missed the diagnosis and failed to prescribe appropriate antibiotics. As a result, the baby died of acute bronchopneumonia with sepsis and shock.
Medical Malpractice/Pharmacy Negligence Claim Against a Philadelphia Hospital
Our client’s three year old son was admitted to a leading hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with renal problems. During that hospitalization a physician ordered a 2% dextrose solution. The hospital pharmacists however prepared a 20% dextrose solution. Thereafter, the nurse administered the 20% solution to our client’s son. As a result, our client’s son sustained brain damage resulting in diminished motor skills and loss of the ability to talk. There were diminished motor strength, feeding difficulties and problems with head and trunk control. Our client’s son continues to suffer from neurological problems, including seizures and diminished functional capacity. His mental ability is that of an eighteen month old child.
Medical Malpractice Claim Against a New Jersey Hospital
Our client was admitted to a New Jersey hospital to have a hernia repair. Following an otherwise uneventful operation she was found dead in her hospital bed. The medical malpractice lawyers at Schwartz & Blackman proved that the client had not been properly monitored during the course of her hospitalization which ultimately led to her demise.
Medical Malpractice Claim Against a Bucks County Maternity Center
Our client was pregnant and was having her pre-natal care by nurses and gynecologists at a maternity center in Bucks County. During her fourth month, she was diagnosed with a vaginal wart. The obstetrician took no action with regard to this wart during the pregnancy. Following the birth of our client’s child, our client was diagnosed with cancer of the vulva. As a result of the maternity center’s delay in diagnosing our client’s condition, our client was forced to undergo extensive surgical intervention, resulting in permanent injuries.
