Birth Injuries: The Cruel Results of Medical Negligence

Modern medicine provides doctors and mothers options that will make giving birth faster and less painful. In every procedure, however, are tradeoffs which present dangers, about which, it has been discovered, many mothers are never told about.

These dangers often result to birth injuries which, according to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services’ Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), number to 28,000 annually; those that result to children’s death, however, reach almost 9,000, as stated on the website of the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter. The sad reality is, these dangers are nothing more than consequences of acts of negligence, which means that these are totally preventable had proper care been observed.

Some common examples of acts of negligence are hospital practices that lead to medical errors, a doctor’s too much dependence on modern medical devices, a doctor failing to dedicate the time to prepare for proper birth and a doctor dangerously performing a rush delivery.

Based on a 2006 study that was reported to the National Vital Statistics Reports for the Center for Disease Control, some of the birth injuries that are cited most include:

  • Brachial Plexus Injury (BPI): Refers to damage to the bundle of nerves that run from the upper spine to the hand. This injury can cause temporary or permanent disability.
  • Bone Fracture: A result of a difficult or complicated delivery which affects the collar bone or clavicle the most. This injury usually heals on its own.
  • Cephalohematoma: This happens when the blood between the skull and the skin’s inner layers pools unnecessarily.
  • Caput Succedaneum: Due to too much pressure during delivery, swelling of the scalp is its usual result. This injury, though, is not life-threatening and usually heals on its own.
  • Cerebral Palsy: Damage to the brain before or at birth which causes impaired muscle coordination. There is no known cure for this type of birth injury.

According to the website of the Law Offices of Williams Kherkher, thousands of medical malpractice lawsuits have been filed in the past, all citing negligence as the cause of errors that resulted in birth injuries. The parents of the injured child have a right to seek justice through legal actions, to make all those who committed the errors or malpractice answer for their negligence. Seeking help from seasoned child injury lawyers may entitle parents to the compensation needed in providing the necessary medical treatment that their injured child needs.

Methamphetamine: A Highly-Addictive Drug

A drug-related crime is one of the very serious offenses that a person can commit. Though the severity of the penalties awaiting those convicted may differ among states, two things are sure to be the same: costly fines and a lengthy jail term. However, the real destructive effects of a criminal conviction sometimes do not end in the prison cell; these will rather continue to hound charged and convicted individuals even after they have already served their sentence and will go on affecting their professional and private lives, and will even entail a host of other negative effects, like denied or limited international travels, lost child custody, and difficulty finding employment or even a place to stay.

Besides crimes that can be directly associated with drugs, like trafficking, possession, manufacture, distribution/selling and use of banned substances, which include marijuana, heroin, opium, cocaine, and methamphetamine, there are also offenses committed by some users, these being the effect of the drug in their behavior.

Whichever type of illegal substance is involved, the crime is definitely serious, especially if there is a large quantity of drugs involved. Due to this, those who get charged with a drug crime are definitely in need of the best defense which can come only from a seasoned criminal defense lawyer who can also guarantee commitment to a client’s cause.

One particular drug, methamphetamine (also known under the names meth, ice, chalk and crystal), is a powerful central nervous system (CNS) stimulant drug. Any Cape Cod drug crimes attorney will be aware that it’s classified as a Schedule II drug under the US Drug Enforcement Administration’s Controlled Substance Act (CSA) due to its high potential for abuse.

Many consider and actually use methamphetamine as a recreational drug due to the pleasurable intoxicating or “high” effect it causes, and the positive emotions and feelings it creates, in the user. For medicinal use, it carries the name Desoxyn and had been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and exogenous obesity (obesity caused by factors that are outside the patient’s control).

Regardless of use, methamphetamine remains to be a dangerous substance due to its highly addictive qualities and ill effects in the user. There may be instances, however, wherein people who need the drug for medicinal reasons or who might need it to overcome social anxiety, increase energy, bolster self-esteem, or just satisfy their curiosity regarding its effect, are chanced upon by authorities, ending up getting charged with a crime which they believe they do not deserve.

A methamphetamine-related charge can be quite serious, thus, people charged with the crime should seek legal assistance from an experienced lawyer, who may be able to protect them through a well-planned defense which may either reduce or dismiss altogether the charges brought against them.

Fight to Keep Your Property from Being Foreclosed

Around 4.2 million homeowners in the US lost their homes between 2007 and 2014 due to foreclosure. According to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, foreclosure is a legal process wherein a creditor or mortgage lender, usually a bank, puts up for sale a loan collateral (a house) in order to recover unpaid mortgages from a borrower. The process that leads to foreclosure usually starts after three successive months of delinquency in mortgage payment.

Foreclosure has two major types: judicial and non-judicial. In a judicial foreclosure, the mortgagee or creditor is required to file a case in court to start the foreclosure procedure on your property. The several months that it takes for this procedure to be completed, though, somehow works in your favor as this will actually give you the chance to raise a legal defense that may save your property. There are a number of foreclosure defenses that have been resorted to in the past which have helped homeowners save their property. A seasoned foreclosure defense attorney may be able to help you learn which among the following arguments will best work in your case:

Servicemember on active duty.

If your creditor filed a case in court to start foreclosure on your property, you are allowed to write the court to request for a postponement of the foreclosure proceeding. Protection against mortgage foreclosure is just one of the many types of protection provided by the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA), formerly called the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Civil Relief Act (SSCRA),
for members of the military entering active duty.

Unconscionable (unacceptable) mortgage term.

This happens when a creditor/lender takes advantage of, misguides and deceives a borrower by designing a mortgage loan contract that is actually intended to make mortgage payment impossible, giving it the opportunity to seize and foreclose upon your property.

State procedures were not observed by foreclosing party:

In a foreclosure procedure there are steps that the foreclosing party needs to observe, such as serving the loaner a notice of default and giving the borrower 30 days to make a payment after the notice of default has been issued. Failure to observe any of the steps required in the foreclosure procedure gives the loaned the legal right to defending against such foreclosure.

Foreclosing party cannot prove ownership of mortgage:

There are times when the foreclosing party is not able to present ownership of mortgage. This is a common case wherein a mortgage contract has been purchased by different companies, so that ownership of the contract has passed from one owner to another.

Mistakes committed by the Mortgage Servicer:

There have been times when a case (that will start foreclosure proceedings) was filed in court by a lender, only to find out that the bases for the foreclosure were actually mistakes committed by the mortgage servicer. These mistakes include:

  • The error of crediting mortgage payment under another loaner’s name
  • Imposing very high fees or collecting fees not approved by you or by the creditor
  • Declaring a mortgage amount that is much higher than what you really are supposed to pay

Though the possibility of losing your property may be imminent every homeowner has a right to foreclosure defense.
