Family awarded more than $2 million in medical malpractice case

When a doctor in Pennsylvania is trusted to properly treat a problem but ends up making the problem worse, this medical professional may be held accountable through the legal system. One logger in a different state said his spinal injury was not properly treated, which caused him to become a paraplegic. He chose to sue three doctors, and he and his wife were recently awarded more than $2 million for his medical malpractice case.

SSD an earned benefit that helps millions of disabled individuals

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month, which helps to recognize the challenges that individuals with disabilities face both in Pennsylvania and other states. These individuals face difficulties not only with overcoming their disability-related barriers but also with convincing others that they are greater than their disabilities. Social Security Disability Insurance, also known as SSD, exists to help to alleviate some of the financial difficulty that comes with no longer being able to earn a living.

Nursing home neglect suit filed after patient dies

When a nursing home in Pennsylvania fails to exercise care and causes a resident's death, the facility may be held financially responsible. In one out-of-state case, a nursing home has been blamed for causing a woman's death by not following the orders of a doctor. The administrator of the woman's estate has filed a nursing home neglect suit against the facility.

Woman who suffers stroke files medical malpractice lawsuit

One careless act by a doctor can cause debilitating harm to a patient in Pennsylvania. An individual in a recent out-of-state case said she recently experienced this at a hospital.

Certain individuals may get SSD benefits fast-tracked

Suffering a disability in Pennsylvania can be both physically and emotionally challenging. Fortunately, Social Security Disability, or SSD, exists to help to remove some of the financial burden that comes with not being able to work a job due to the disability. There are several conditions that actually make a person eligible for the expedited disability process through Social Security, which means he or she can get his or her financial benefits even sooner.
