Virginia Woman Files Medical Malpractice Suit against VA Hospital for Sister’s Overdose http://hampton-va-car-truck-accident-injury-lawyers.com/2012/12/18/virginia-woman-files-medical-malpractice-suit-against-va-hospital-for-sisters-overdose/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=virginia-woman-files-medical-malpractice-suit-against-va-hospital-for-sisters-overdose http://hampton-va-car-truck-accident-injury-lawyers.com/2012/12/18/virginia-woman-files-medical-malpractice-suit-against-va-hospital-for-sisters-overdose/#comments Tue, 18 Dec 2012 19:27:56 +0000 admin http://hampton-va-car-truck-accident-injury-lawyers.com/?p=417 by Kevin Duffan, Virginia medical malpractice attorney

A Virginia woman filed a medical malpractice suit against the Hampton VA Medical Center in November 2012. She is blaming the hospital for her twin sister’s drug overdose death in 2010. According to the lawsuit, her sister, who had psychological issues and had attempted suicide three times before, was given four months of Seroquel by the doctor from the VA medical center. This is the same antipsychotic drug that she had used previously in her suicide attempts. Tragically, she was successful in ending her life the fourth time. The surviving sister is accusing the medical center of negligence in giving her troubled sister that much medication at one time.

Medical malpractice lawsuits arise when a doctor or other medical professional allegedly makes an error that causes injury or death to a victim. In this case it appears to be an error in judgment on the doctor’s part. The victim asked for two months’ worth of the prescription because she was going out of town. When she tried to pick it up at the center they said it was being shipped to her house. She told them she was leaving directly from there, so the doctor gave her two more months’ worth of pills. As her treating physician who was familiar with her history, the lawsuit alleges that the doctor should never have given her that much medication at one time.

Our Virginia medical malpractice attorneys are very familiar with the negligence of medical professionals and have secured numerous monetary awards for malpractice victims, some of which are listed here. If you or a loved one may have been a victim of medical malpractice, it is important contact a knowledgeable attorney. If you are not ready to speak directly to an attorney, these answers to frequently asked medical malpractice questions provide valuable information on this type of case.

Common Sense Still Needed After a Product Recall http://hampton-va-car-truck-accident-injury-lawyers.com/2012/09/15/common-sense-still-needed-after-a-product-recall/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=common-sense-still-needed-after-a-product-recall http://hampton-va-car-truck-accident-injury-lawyers.com/2012/09/15/common-sense-still-needed-after-a-product-recall/#comments Sat, 15 Sep 2012 18:45:12 +0000 admin http://hampton-va-car-truck-accident-injury-lawyers.com/?p=395 By Rick Shapiro, Hampton Personal Injury Lawyer

My colleague published an article in the Legal Examiner talking about the risks associated with products that have received a “voluntary” recall notice. Parents must realize that just because the company took it upon themselves to issue the recall does not make the product any less dangerous. My colleague referenced the Bumbo Baby seat. Unfortunately, even with increased warnings and hazard indication after the company issued a voluntary recall, 84 reports of falls occurred after the first recall, leaving room to consider whether a second recall will actually cause any marked reduction in the incidence of injury in children using this product.

Recalls are good, but don’t check your common sense at the door
