The Terror of Clinical Negligence

Clinical, or medical, negligence is the failure of a medical professional or institution to correctly diagnose or treat a patient, resulting in harm. There are thousands of cases a year in the UK alone, and the number is rising. In the year 2011/2012 13,517 claims were filed against NHS staff; this rose by 18.4% to 16,006 claims in the year 2012/2013. This, in turn, is 80% higher than the number of claims filed five years previously.

What type of negligence?

There are a number of ‘types’ of clinical negligence, although some are more apparent than others. Surgical complications are perhaps something we might think of first, as they appeal to a certain morbid curiosity, and thus have long been fodder for television and film.

Surgical negligence

In the US there are around 1500 reports per year of a patient having received surgery, who was later found to have a foreign object that had been left in the body cavity. Known as “retained surgical instruments” this type of negligence is more common than, for example, surgery performed in the incorrect place.

In fact, the occurrence of a sponge being left inside a patient is so high that it has a name: gossypiboma.

Wrong-site surgery

It might be the case that ‘wrong site’ surgery is rare, but when it happens the very thought is terrifying. In one year alone, one American teaching hospital was found to have performed THREE surgeries on the wrong side of patients’ brains.

  • In the first case, a third-year resident failed to mark the correct side for surgery.
  • In the second, a very experienced doctor chose not to note the side of the brain in which a blood clot resided, allegedly telling a nurse that he would remember. He did not, and ultimately the patient died.
  • In the third case both the chief resident neurosurgeon, and nurse, verified the correct side of the brain for surgery. They then got it wrong anyway.

It is not just the brain that is at risk. The BBC reported in 2002, that 70-year-old Graham Reeves had his healthy left kidney removed in an operation intended to remove the diseased right kidney. He underwent a second operation once the mistake had been discovered, in an attempt to improve the condition of the remaining diseased kidney, but died a few days later.

Another story tells of a US Air Force veteran who was awarded $200,000 after a botched operation resulted in removal of the wrong testicle.

And in one absolutely horrifying case, reported by the New York Times in the mid-nineties, a 51-year-old diabetic man was booked in to have his right leg amputated due to circulatory disease. A catastrophic cascade of errors led to the man having his healthy left leg amputated. He was later forced to have the right leg removed, and has had to resort to re-learning to walk on prosthetic legs.

Types Of Personal Injury Claim

If you suffer an injury, or even an illness, as the result of an accident or incident that was not your fault, and the fault can be attributed to a third party, then you have suffered a personal injury and may be able to claim personal injury compensation from that party. The amount you receive will depend on a number of factors, including the severity of your injuries and how long any disability is expected to last, but there are many types of accident and many different circumstances that may lead to you being able to submit a compensation claim.

Traffic accidents are among the most common of all personal injury accidents. Whether you were the driver or passenger in a car, whether you were on a motorbike, or even if you were a pedestrian or cyclist, travelling on public transport, or involved in a road accident in any other way, you may be able to claim for damage to your belongings, including your vehicle, and for your injuries and loss of earnings that arose as a result of the accident.

Types Of Personal Injury Claim

Your employer has a legal obligation to ensure that all of their employees are provided with a safe working environment. While some jobs may have a degree of risk associated with them, the employer is expected to mitigate this danger by providing adequate protective gear, safety procedures, and training. If they have failed to do this, and you have suffered an injury or illness as a result, then you may be able to claim compensation.

Negligence can, of course, take many forms. Medical negligence means that a doctor or other healthcare provider has, through their action or inaction, caused you to suffer an injury or illness that has impacted your daily life or led to some form of loss. Dentists, as well as nurses, surgeons, physiotherapists, doctors, and other healthcare professionals are expected to provide a high quality of service, as well as high quality advice. If they fail to do this, you may be able to claim compensation.

An accident in a public place may also have the potential to be considered a personal injury case. Commercial, retail, and other public buildings and buildings that are open to the public must meet certain standards. A failure to meet these standards can lead to injuries and illnesses, and if negligence or blame can be attributed to the person or group responsible for the public building or place, then a compensation claim may be possible.

Product manufacturers and, to some degree, retailers, also have an obligation to their customers and buyers. Products must be safe, must be tested to be safe, and they must carry suitable warnings if there are known to be certain risks or certain circumstances where the risk of injury or illness is higher. Even a failure to properly display this danger threat assessment could mean that a product manufacturer is liable, and this can lead to extensive legal cases and compensation claims.

To What Extent can a Parent Be Held Legally Liable for their Child’s Actions?

Most parents do not realize the responsibility they have for the actions of their children in the eyes of a court of law. Stating that most parents would be shocked for their liabilities would be a completely fair statement. There is a variety of approaches that a litigating party might take to draw the parents in. While a parent may have been completely disconnected from the action being prosecuted and have no knowledge of the event whatsoever, the parent can find themselves in court.


The stories of children walking into schools with firearms and shooting classmates have made the news with much more frequency in the past few years. The legal age to purchase a handgun in most states is 21, and to buy a rifle you must usually be 18 years old. The horrors of a school shooting ripple throughout the entire country and the resulting tragedy is incomprehensible. If your child takes your weapon and it was not properly secured, the legal consequences can be extensive. Negligence that leads to death is a serious offense.

State laws will vary from one state to another, but most states have a parental liability law. If your child intentionally bullies another child and that child is physically harmed, the damages can be assessed against the parents. While children have protections built into the law, the law will look to hold someone accountable for any wrongdoing.

Bullying has become more than a social phenomenon for discussion as most states look to toughen bullying legislation. The popular opinion is leading the discussion to the conclusion that parents are responsible for their child’s behavior on the internet. When parents condone the actions of their children directly or do not proactively discourage misbehavior, they become culpable. Violence is a type of behavior that cannot be protected by anyone without consequence.


The type of consequences a parent can face when their child gets into a car can be destructive. If a parent’s name is on the title of the car and the child uses that car in a way that causes the death of another, or the destruction of property, most states will allow legal action against the title holder and parent. Legal action can be in the form of criminal prosecution by the government or civil prosecution for damages.

If your child goes to a party and drinks before driving, there are going to be multiple parties at risk of liability. What adult contributed to the delinquency? What adult allowed the party in their home with minors drinking? Did an adult see the child get in the car intoxicated? Did the parent of the child give permission for attendance at a party that they knew would have alcohol? Even if the minor has completely duped their parents there is a risk of liability. Personal injury protection through insurers only covers so much. When the coverage is exhausted, the torts can extend to the personal assets of the parent. If a judgment is awarded to the injured party, it can attach to any personal or real property depending on the particular states laws.

In Your Home

People initiate lawsuits with the hope of either justice or a judgment. The two do not always go together. As a parent, there is a strong likelihood that you will have other children as guests in your home someday. Even though you may not have control over other children that come to your house, you can put yourself in a perilous position. Although your child may not do drugs or have a disreputable character, when you invite another child into your home, you put yourself at risk for the character and behavior of that child. If another child brings drugs to your home and distributes it to another kid in your home what do you do? If another child, as a guest, gets into a fight with another child on your property, what do you do? Consider a less nefarious scenario. What if a child simply trips over their shoelaces and hits their head on the coffee table. What do you do?

Homeowner’s insurance deals with these scenarios all of the time and your coverage may need to be looked at. The law does not always follow common sense logic and gets complicated under legal theory. Personal injury attorneys that focus only in this area of law have found enough business to sustain their practices for years. Some would say you cannot plan against bad luck while others would say the laws are stacked against you. In reality, until you are a victim of circumstances that makes you appreciate the laws on the books you may not give them a second thought.


In Florida, if you promote the sexual performance of a child, you are in violation of the law. If your child takes pictures of illegal sexual acts and they are on your computer with or without your knowledge, the legal battle alone is not only going to be costly, it is going to be traumatic for the family. The liability that the parent has is going to be difficult to disprove.

Parents have to be very careful with monitoring the activities of their children in the modern age. The internet has allowed immediate access to anything that happens in the world for good or for ill. Children are often more computer literate than their parents and can hide or mask their activities. Simply emailing pictures that are illegal through a common portal that the parents use such as their email or social network can make it difficult for the law to prove who the offender was, but it will not end well regardless. The responsibility goes beyond the tort and passes into the criminal. The laws are evolving in this area because of the proliferation of child pornography and the rise in deviant behavior by teens that result in bullying and sometimes suicide. As these laws develop and make their way through the courts the tone of parental responsibility for the actions of their children is going to become even clearer.

To simply state the understanding of a parent’s liability, a parent is nearly as responsible for the act of their child as if they had done the act themselves, although there are exceptions and limitations. A parent is at much less risk of liability for children eight or under or that have reached the age of majority. If a parent is the proximate cause of the actions of the child the whole scenario is going to be explosive and the judge may not show much mercy. With this information, it is easy to see parents have every reason to keep their children under a watchful eye if they want to avoid legal repercussions.

For any personal injury problems – including personal injury cases you were dragged into as a result of your child’s actions – he highly recommends Orlando area attorney David Heil, P.A.

Premarital Agreement Essentials

Congratulations, you’re getting married! It is important milestone in your life, a time when you and your beloved will become one. Although most couples commingle their assets, some prefer to keep what they own separate. They can do this by signing a premarital agreement, sometimes known as a prenuptial agreement, a binding document that will protect both parties in the event of a divorce. State law dictates such agreements, but the following are among the items covered in a document.

His debt, her debt. These days, a lot of couples bring a ton of debt into their marriages. Oftentimes it is student loan debt, accumulated through undergraduate and graduate studies. If the debt is particularly large, then one person may insist that the indebted individual handle the matter. If the couple does divorce, the other person is not responsible for that debt.

The financial divide. Some couples wed with one person having much greater finances than the other. The person with the funds may want to ensure that they are used in a certain way, something that could change in a divorce. With a prenuptial agreement, the spouse cannot lay claim to money that was never shared with him or her.

When children are present. If either couple was previously married or had children within or without wedlock, a premarital agreement can provide protection. Usually, the couple is older, the children are grown and a parent wants to leave money to offspring. A prenuptial ensures that when the said parent dies, the inheritance passes to the offspring. The parent will still have to have a will, however.

To pass on property. Your family has controlled a house for many generations or may own land that they want to pass to the next generation. As the person in ownership of the property, you want to ensure that it goes to your children, not to your new spouse. A premarital agreement can specify the property and even include property you do not presently own, but expect to receive explains the Law Offices of James S. Cunha, P.A.

Maintain your estate. You have a will and you know how you want your assets to be distributed when you die. But then there is the matter of a new spouse, someone whom you love, but don’t want to give everything you own to him or her. A prenuptial agreement ensures that your estate is settled as planned. You can also provide for your surviving spouse separately if you wish.

Divorce considerations. Sure, you expect to marry and stay married until death do you part. The reality for some people is that one or both spouses may want to dissolve the relationship, by filing for divorce. A divorce can be emotionally wrenching, financially destabilizing and thoroughly life changing. If you and or you spouse is entering a new marriage with divorce baggage, you’ll certainly consider outlining certain things in the premarital agreement, including likely alimony payments.

Outline responsibilities.  There are certain responsibilities a premarital agreement can address. These include: agreements to buy a house together, to start a business, managing investment accounts, providing for a surviving spouse, tax filing and handling credit. There are so many matters that can be addressed in a prenuptial although state law may restrict some of it.

Premarital Disagreements

A prenuptial agreement does have restrictions. You cannot, for instance, restrict the visitation rights of children as set forth by a court order. You cannot make rules about matters that have nothing to do with money. And if you have pets, how you and your spouse will care for them is a matter of discussion apart from the premarital agreement.

Four Great Mobile SEO Strategies for Law Firms

In today’s digital age SEO for law firms is just as crucial as SEO for retailers. And without a successful mobile SEO scheme, firms can sink even deeper. But the landscape of technology and SEO is ever changing as more folks pick up smartphones and tablets. According to Microsoft, there are some four billion mobile devices in the world, and over a billion of these are smartphones. Also, according to Kioskea, mobile web makes up 10% of global web traffic. For example, in one year in Asia, mobile web searches jumped nearly 193% in just 18 months. And in India, mobile now accounts for just about half of all Internet traffic. That means it’s time to not just implement mobile SEO into web strategies, but to anticipate future trends as well. Here are some top tips from Google on just how to accomplish this.

Don’t discount organic searches

Many local businesses and law firms aren’t sold on mobile SEO just yet because they aren’t seeing the hard data in the realm of ROI. But this is misleading. Because while Google Analytics can segment organic traffic, it still lacks certain functionality, such as being able to track phone calls from organic searches. Therefore, local businesses should know that low mobile stats are usually underestimating by quite a bit.

Google is working on the issue, and now local businesses can take advantage of Offer Ad Extensions, which aims to connect mobile marketing efforts with tracking in-store purchases as well as call reporting.

Rethink keywords

In the world of standard desktop SEO, marketers concentrate on prioritizing keywords according to criteria such as competition, difficulty, estimated search volume per month, etc. But there are other things to take into account when considering mobile SEO, like the time difference between search and action, which is very short. Therefore, marketers should target monthly mobile search volume using the Google Keyword Tool.

Responsive web design is a must

According to more stats from Microsoft, mobile sales have surpassed desktop computer sales. And Google suggests responsive design is always better when crafting a website because these mobile devices are only getting better. In fact, most current mobile devices have zero problems loading sophisticated regular sites, so there’s no need to skimp on functionality.

Focus on user context

This is especially true for local law firms. That’s because 1 in 3 mobile searches is local. And out of all local searches, up to 74% comes from mobile devices. Therefore, search advertisers should implement a strategy geared towards the most profitable user contexts. Marketers can even create one single ad campaign in AdWords and disseminate it to a number of devices while merely adjusting the ad copy based on context.

These are just a few tips and trends local firms should keep in mind when crafting their mobile SEO strategy. One final stat advertisers should bear in mind regarding the power of mobile: the average American spends 2.7 hours each day socializing on their mobile device. And this figure is only expected to increase over time.
