    Florida Supreme Court tosses out medical malpractice cap on damages

    http://www.tampabay.com

    TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Supreme Court on Thursday rejected the centerpiece of the 2003 medical malpractice overhaul, blasting the Legislature for creating an "alleged medical malpractice crisis" and concluding, in a 5-2 ruling, that a cap on wrongful death noneconomic damages violates the U.S. and...

    Most doctors are good wonderful human beings who help and don't hurt. However, if you harm someone, you should be responsible for the full measure of the harm you cause. The $250 cap was put into place more than 38 years ago. Let's raise it to reflect the rate of inflation. Let's also say asking doctors to pee in a cup is not a bad thing! Good docs should not be afraid of this change!

    "Trial lawyers and consumer groups are pushing a measure that would raise the cap on pain and suffering damages in medical malpractices cases from $250,000 to approximately $1.1 million. It would also require doctors to be drug tested and to check a statewide database when prescribing certain medications to clamp down on prescription drug abuse."

    It is time for a change! Sometimes $250,000 for pain and suffering damages is not enough in light of the damage. Take a minute and watch this sort video - a story from a medical malpractice victim. Thanks!

  • Pelvis Fracture Attorneys Los Angeles

    The pelvis is a ring-like structure of bones, which consists of three bones (1) the ilium; (2) the ischium; and (3) the pubis. Pelvic fractures are common injuries in automobile versus pedestrian, bicycle, motorcycle or slip and fall accidents. These injuries can be extremely painful and recovery can take a while, significantly impacting the patient’s life.

    Symptoms of a Pelvis Fracture

    Symptoms for a pelvic fracture may include:

    • Pelvic pain, including pain in the groin, hip or lower back area, which increases when standing and walking.
    • Pelvic instability.
    • Bladder incontinence.
    • Bowel incontinence.
    • Difficulty walking.

    Treatment for Pelvis Fractures

    Stable fractures may not require surgery. These fractures require that the patient use crutches or a walker, and will not be able to put all of their weight on their legs while walking. Pelvic fractures that result from high-energy trauma, such as car accidents, are often life-threatening injuries because of the extensive bleeding. In these cases, doctors may use an external fixator to stabilize the pelvic area. This device has long screws that are inserted into the bones on each side and connected to a frame outside the body. These high-energy fractures may have significant complications, including severe bleeding, internal organ damage, and infection.

    If you or a loved one has been injured in an automobile or fall accident and sustained a pelvic fracture as a result of this accidentin Los Angeles, please contact the Haggai Law Firm for a free consultation with an attorney who can help you obtain fair and reasonable compensation for your injuries.
