Money damages that may be recoverable in a wrongful death lawsuit

If you are injured by the act of another, it is not difficult to contemplate a legal claim against that person to secure financial redress for those injuries. But what about a situation in which an injury not only happens to a family member, but also results in his or her death? What recourse might you have under the law in that situation?

Medical malpractice lawsuit settled over kidney thrown in trash

There is no denying that hospital negligence can take many forms. Misdiagnosis, delayed medical assistance, emergency room errors, and surgical errors happen too often. Even so, it was surprising to hear about a patient who woke up after a procedure only to learn that a nurse accidentally threw away the organ that she was meant to receive.  

Research links genes to brain injury risk

Traumatic brain injuries can impact the lives of victims of any number of accidents—from car crashes to sports injuries to military-related injuries, among others. Brain injuries can be caused by any trauma to the head, such as a sudden blow. Why some blows to the head result in brain injuries and others do not has long eluded scientists. But, new research seems to indicate that some people are more susceptible to suffering brain injuries due to their genes.

Tragic wrongful death suit settled in Connecticut

The loss of a loved one is inevitably difficult and painful, let alone when the death is caused by a fatal accident that is spontaneous and arguably preventable. A wrongful death lawsuit attempts to place liability on another party. While medical expenses are often a realistic part of the scenario, financial settlements also act as compensation to the claimant and hopefully serve as a sense of justice. The victim’s estate is ultimately awarded the money awarded from the settlement.
