Medical Malpractice Claims Reveal Problems at Chicago Public Hospitals

claim.jpgThe John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County and the University of Illinois Hospital have both been repeatedly sued for malpractice and have paid out more than $160 million to settle claims, demonstrating the pervasive problem of negligence within their systems. The paid-out claims are likely just the tip of the iceberg because many settlements are not reported. The settlements date from just the past five years, further demonstrating the problem's depth. A Chicago medical malpractice lawyer is aware of the extent of the issue and frequently represents clients who have been seriously injured or who have lost loved ones because of medical errors while under hospital care.

A Mild Concussion Can Have Lasting Effects on Longevity and Mental Health

mental health.pngA comprehensive study completed by researchers at Britain's University of Oxford and Imperial College illustrates the lasting effects that even a mild bump on the head can have. It found that people who suffered mild concussions had shorter life spans and suffered mental health problems at a significantly higher rate than people who had not suffered concussions.

Congress Looks to Limit Damages in Medical Malpractice Cases

congress building.jpgRepublican representative Steve King introduced a bill in Congress that would limit the available non-ecomonic damages in medical malpractice lawsuits to $250,000 per case. If the law passes, it would affect claims in every state, including in Illinois. The law would apply to all claims involving coverage provided by Medicare, Medicaid or subsidies under the Affordable Care Act. This means it would apply to most employer-provided insurance policies because employers receive subsidies for the coverage that they offer to their employees. Malpractice lawyers across the country believe that the bill would take away some rights of people who have been seriously injured by medical mistakes.

When Is A Store Owner Liable For A Customer's Injuries?

shopping mall.jpgWhile shopping can be an entertaining pastime as well as a necessary duty, sometimes you can get hurt while at the mall or the local grocery. Shoppers can suffer from accidental injuries in a number of ways. The most common type of accident happens when a customer slips or trips, resulting in fractures or broken bones. Depending on the specific circumstances of the accident, the store owner could be held liable for the victim's financial losses and pain and suffering.

Facebook Powerless on Privacy says New York Supreme Court Decision

facebook.jpgOn April 4, 2017, the New York Supreme Court affirmed that law enforcement officials don't need to warn users or get permission to snoop through their private Facebook activity. It doesn't matter whether the information was posted to "friends of friends," "friends" or "only me." By admission in Facebook's own community guidelines and more recently by order of the court, the social media corporation remains powerless to stop invasion of users' privacy.
