These are just a few of the ways that medical professionals can make mistakes that are the basis of medical malpractice actions, and you may already be familiar with them as we are at Lynch, Traub, Keefe & Errante. Indeed, we help our clients with all of these causes of action against hospitals and other health care entities.

Can OB/GYN negligence lead to shoulder dystocia?

It is a nightmare that every pregnant woman in Connecticut has: Your labor is progressing, you begin to push, you are moments away from having your new infant in your arms when suddenly the progress is slowed or stopped completely due to shoulder dystocia. This can lead to additional complications and birth injuries and is often a very scary event for mothers. Though some occurrences of shoulder dystocia cannot be foreseen, there are women who are at greater risk than others. If your OB/GYN does not prepare for these risks, you may become the victim of negligence.

Sandy Hook wrongful death lawsuit returned to state court

One of the considerations that must be taken into account when preparing a lawsuit, including a wrongful death action, for trial includes what is known in the legal profession as "motion practice."

Don’t lose your right to sue for medical professional negligence

Confusing the Connecticut statute of limitations with the statute of repose is one of those mistakes in life that could cost you dearly if you have been injured by a doctor error or other medical professional negligence. Both statutes set time limits for filing a claim for compensation, and failing to comply with them could result in the dismissal of your medical malpractice lawsuit.
