New technology helps scientists see at the cellular level

If you've been hurt because of medical malpractice, anything that makes a diagnosis more likely and more accurate is rightly on the top of your list of good things. A new ultrasound technique has been shown to display live images of the insides of living cells, and this new technology could save lives in all new ways.

Surgical mistakes are inexcusable

When you have to plan to have surgery, you already know that there are risks involved. No one goes into surgery thinking that it will go exactly as planned, because every person is different and each surgery has its own complications. What you do expect is that your medical team will be able to handle the issues that come up and treat you with the respect you deserve as a patient. Stupid mistakes, like leaving a sponge in your surgical site wound or operating on the wrong side of your body, are inexcusable.

What should you do if you want to file a malpractice claim?

If you have suffered because a hospital staff member, doctor, nurse or other party was negligent, it's important to consider the possibility of a medical malpractice case. While not all errors or mistakes need to be addressed in court, if you've suffered an injury or lost a loved one because of mistakes made, your case should be discussed at the very least.
