Informed Consent and Ohio Medical Malpractice

By David Kulwicki|2019-03-18T22:02:01+00:00October 19th, 2014|Informed Consent|

We often hear doctors say that a piece of paper called "informed consent" was signed, therefore the patient assumed the risk of a complication occurring and the doctor can't be held responsible when things go wrong. In Ohio and elsewhere, the reference to "known and accepted complications" is a hotly debated topic in the law. [...]

Medical mistakes resulting in birth injuries are some of the most devastating mistakes that destroy the lives of so many families. Some of the injuries that occur are temporary and the baby is eventually fine.

By David Kulwicki|2019-11-21T16:34:59+00:00May 21st, 2014|Medical Malpractice|

Suing for medical malpractice is a very costly undertaking and one that few attorneys can pursue. When a case proceeds to trial, the stakes are high and the victim of the medical error places his or her faith and trust with the jury to do the right thing. One of the primary goals of a [...]

Avoiding Medical Errors: Empathy Part 2

By David Kulwicki|2019-04-24T18:00:04+00:00May 16th, 2014|Medical Error|

Last year I wrote about Empathy Part 1. See our Blog from August 2013. Fast forward almost a year later and I continue to be amazed by how often medical errors occur because the hospital systems just don't get it. While we see advertisements that promise caring medical care, what is delivered is often far [...]

By David Kulwicki|2016-06-09T18:06:26+00:00May 1st, 2014|FAQS|

A frequently asked question: Does my doctor have to testify? Answer: It Depends. Great what good does that do?

Patient Safety. What does it truly mean? Why are so many errors being made by doctors and hospitals? What is the solution and how can we be facing such an epidemic of mishaps in our medical care?

Limits on Noneconomic Damages Unconstitutional

By David Kulwicki|2019-03-18T22:02:12+00:00April 6th, 2014|Medical Malpractice|

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. This is a tremendous victory for Florida patients and families. It also sends a message throughout the U.S about the myths of medical malpractice lawsuits. THERE IS NO [...]

Hospital Errors – Can They be Reduced?

By David Kulwicki|2019-03-18T22:02:20+00:00December 11th, 2013|Hospital Negligence|

Hospital errors that lead to serious preventable medical injuries occur at alarming rates. Communication between various caregivers is frequently the cause of these preventable medical errors. I have previously written about a case I tried where the patient's injury was entirely preventable if the handoff from one doctor to the next had been improved. See [...]
