With visions of sugarplums come dangers of dental malpractice

After the holiday festivities end and the pursuit of resolutions begins to pick up momentum in your mind, you may add a visit to the dentist for a routine cleaning to your agenda. As you many have experienced, a visit to the dentist can end up being anything but routine. Dentists are highly trained to specific skills and sometimes the work required in a patient's mouth may require even greater and more specific skill, perhaps by either a medical doctor or an oral surgeon.

Hospital negligence can be much more than just a wet floor

When you are sick or injured, you put your trust and life in the hands of the doctors, nurses and other members of a hospital staff who are treating you. The sad truth is that sometimes medical malpractice or hospital negligence can result in further injuries, permanent disability or, even, death.

What is the standard of care for medical malpractice?

In an ordinary personal injury action based on negligence, the plaintiff must prove among other things that the defendant owed the plaintiff a duty of care, and failed to uphold that duty. This means generally that the defendant must act as a "reasonable person" would under the same circumstances; what a reasonable person would do is up to the determination of the jury.
