Medical Malpractice: Overprescription of Painkillers in Ohio

By |2019-03-18T22:02:11+00:00April 25th, 2014|Medical Malpractice|

As a medical malpractice attorney, I was shocked to learn how Big Pharm manipulates healthcare in the U.S.  Worse yet, doctors are complicit in this corruption.  I first saw it with overprescription of ADHD medications to young children.  If physicians and pill manufacturers are willing to victimize children for a dollar, they will victimize anyone for a dollar.  This [...]

The Florida Supreme Court in Estate of Michelle McCall v. United States overturned a 2003 law that imposed arbitrary limits on noneconomic damages in wrongful death claims.

Heart attacks remain a leading cause of death in the U.S.  Despite being common, a new study published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) shows that emergency rooms are less prepared to deal with hearts attacks when they occur on weekends, evenings and holidays.  Should a patient's life depend on whether they are lucky enough [...]
