Delayed diagnosis allegedly results in traumatic brain injury

Residents of Washington, D.C., and, indeed, all people across the nation need to be able to rely on prompt and accurate health care diagnoses.

Home appliance defect results in explosions, serious burns

Few people give much thought to their kitchen appliances on a day-to-day basis.

An inferior vena cava (IVC) filter is a device implanted -- permanently or temporarily -- just below the kidneys that is meant to capture embolisms. An embolism is a blood clot which has broken loose from one of the deep veins in an individual's legs and then travels to the person's heart and lungs. For patients in Washington, D.C., or anywhere in the world, a vena cava filter can prove lifesaving. Unfortunately, in a case in another state, a woman who had the device installed has had less than successful results and, subsequently, filed a defective product lawsuit against the manufacturer.

Delay in accurate diagnosis can prove fatal

Patients in Washington, D.C., and across the nation have the right to expect prompt medical treatment, especially as, with certain diseases and illnesses, a few months can make all the difference.
