    Spinal Cord Injury This case involved a young lady who suffered a spinal cord injury resulting in paraplegia during an automobile accident. After being stabilized, the young lady was transferred to the hospital floor where she developed severe pressure sores on her hips within two weeks. The hospital argued that the patient had been turned and repositioned regularly while she was in bed. The hospital also argued that the patient’s medical condition made the pressure sores unpreventable. However, a close look at the medical records revealed that the young lady had been left sitting in a bedside chair for long periods of time. The pressure sores developed on her ischial tuberosities which are the areas where pressure is applied when you sit in a chair.

    Surgical Malpractice Sawyer Law Firm recently reached a settlement in a case involving surgical malpractice.

The case also involved allegations that the surgeon failed to perform proper post-surgical diagnostic procedures to discover and identify the perforation. As a result, the stomach contents leaked into the patient’s abdomen resulting in infection and peritonitis. The patient required three major surgeries to repair the perforations.

    Fall at Assisted Living A settlement was reached on behalf of a nursing home resident who was fell while being transferred from the bed to a chair.

The nursing staff failed to remove the straight-leg brace as required, and as a result, the resident developed a pressure sore from the brace. This pressure sore required extensive treatment at a wound care clinic.
