Serious medical procedures and surgeries are anxiety-inducing events for all parties involved. While the patient is worried about coming away from the surgery unscathed, the doctors involved are occupied with the meticulous process necessary to complete a complicated surgery. Unfortunately, this process does not always go as smoothly as all parties hope, and serious complications can arise from botched surgeries. In such a situation, it would be wise to contact an expert medical malpractice attorney at 617-787-3700.
In 2010, Eugenia Snowden went into Miami Valley Hospital for a surgical procedure. Now, a lawsuit stemming from the surgery alleges that the surgical team left a laparotomy sponge inside of Snowden. This sponge caused a number of complications for Snowden, and ultimately resulted in her death.
The hospital admits that a sponge was indeed left in Snowden’s body after the surgery, but denies any connection between the sponge and Snowden’s death. Court documents indicate that the 17 hour surgery was far longer than expected, and that the surgeons failed to consult the X-Ray machine to make sure that each sponge had been properly removed from Snowden’s body. Snowden is represented in her personal injury case by attorney Gary Leppla, of Leppla Associates Ltd., in Dayton, Ohio.

Businesses, institutions, and organizations all have a lot of moving pieces, making it extremely hard to ensure that adequate attention is being paid to each individual facet of the operation. Hospitals, for example, have to make sure that their work is organized and running smoothly, as peoples’ lives could be in danger. They must make sure, however, that paying attention to the day to day operations does not take attention away from other area of the practice, such as making good and appropriate hiring decisions. In all businesses and organizations, but hospitals in particular, the hiring stage is crucial and must be done with extreme care. If a hospital were to hire someone who was not qualified or prone to mistakes, that could result in real harm. In such a situation, it would be wise to contact an expert personal injury attorney at 617-787-3700.
A former patient of East Niagara Hospital has filed a lawsuit against the hospital, alleging that they negligently hired an employee who then began an abusive relationship with the former patient. According to reports, former behavioral health assistant Timothy Laubacker had been giving mental health treatment to the plaintiff when he developed an inappropriate, manipulative, and abusive relationship with her.
The lawsuit alleges that the hospital should have done its due diligence in hiring Laubacker, as there had been earlier allegations related to child-pornography. The suit also claims that the hospital was negligent in retaining Laubacker when it should have been fully aware of his actions. Laubacker himself has also been named as the defendant in a lawsuit alleging intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Tragic accidents occur on far too frequent a basis. When they do occur, the natural inclination is to try and understand how such a thing could have happened, and what conditions allowed it to happen. In essence, we want to know whose fault it is that an accident took place. Sometimes there is no blame to be assigned, but oftentimes horrible accidents are the result of negligent behavior, and the accident could have been avoided altogether had someone acted reasonably. In such a situation, it would be wise to contact an expert personal injury attorney at 617-787-3700.
On July 29, 2018, tragedy struck in Missouri as a tour boat sunk, leaving seventeen people dead. The vehicle, which was an amphibious half-boat half-bus designed during World War II, was in the water during a storm and took on a significant amount of water. Now, several people have filed lawsuits on behalf of the deceased, claiming that this accident was predictable and avoidable.
One such lawsuit claims that the groups that operate this company have known for years about the design flaws inherent in the boat, and that their susceptibility to sink during storms had been previously noted, yet no changes had been made. That lawsuit has named Ripley Entertainment, Ride the Ducks, and other companies that are believed to be responsible, as defendants. The suit claims that the tour should have been cancelled, as management for the tour company was aware of the impending storm.
