Parents awarded $11.35M for child's birth injuries

When couples in Washington, D.C. and elsewhere have children, they naturally hope that all will go well with the delivery and that the baby will be born healthy and ready to face all of life's challenges head-on. However, errors can occur during birth, which can lead to birth injuries that will adversely affect the child and pose additional challenges for the entire family. Sometimes, these adverse effects do not fully manifest until the child is older; however, parents who believe their child's condition was the result of injuries suffered during the delivery process have legal recourse through the civil court system.

Parents say dangerous product caused child's death, sue

People naturally assume the products they and their children use are safe. However, defective products can still reach the hands of consumers in Washington, D.C., or anywhere else, and sometimes, these products cause serious injury or death to those who use them. A family in another state recently experienced a great tragedy when their daughter was killed as the result of what the parents deem a dangerous product. They have filed suit against several defendants responsible for the design, manufacture and marketing of the product.

Woman loses hands, feet as the result of surgical errors

A story that may be of interest to those in Washington, D.C. involves a woman in another state who ended up losing her hands and her feet after a surgical procedure to remove her fallopian tubes. Whenever surgical errors lead to the death, disfigurement or further illness or injury to patients, the victims or their family members may pursue civil claims against the health care providers for the damages they caused. The woman in this case has already filed suit against the hospital where the procedure took place as well as against several doctors involved.

Commercial trucks are indispensable means of transporting large amounts of goods from one location to another. However, with so many trucks on the nation's highways, the potential for a serious, or even fatal, truck accident increases.

Vehicle accidents can range from minor fender-benders to catastrophic collisions, with many factors determining the severity of the crash.

Although authorities are still investigating a recent car crash in Montgomery County, they suspect excessive speed likely played a role in a wreck that claimed two lives.

Woman awarded $2.3M for medical malpractice

People in Washington, D.C., and elsewhere want to trust their physicians will exercise every level of care and professionalism as they perform procedures on their patients.

However, sometimes mistakes happen, and patients adversely affected by negligent physicians typically have the right to seek damages through a medical malpractice claim.

Birth injuries lawsuit awards family $40M for negligent delivery
