In 2013, a man from Maryland died after contracting rabies from an infected kidney that he received as a transplant in 2011. This is only the second time that rabies has been transmitted through a donated organ in the US. Rabies is extremely rare in the US - causing only 1 to 3 deaths a year. Additionally, signs and symptoms of rabies usually appear within a month or two after initial infection, so the fact that the man’s symptoms appeared over a year after his transplant was something that steered doctors away from a rabies diagnosis. 

According to reports, the kidney donor, a 20-year-old Air Force airman, died of encephalitis, however, doctors could find no reason for this. In fact, they believed he may have been poisoned, so they did a full medical work-up and tested for everything they could think of in order to try and determine the cause of his encephalitis. They didn’t think to check for rabies and declared his organs and tissues safe for transplantation - a major medical error on their part.

Actress Julie Andrews is a well-known and well-loved star in Hollywood. Made famous from leading roles in movies such as “Mary Poppins” and “The Sound of Music,” Julie Andrews had a gifted singing voice which was her pride and joy. Sadly, an unfortunate case of medical malpractice in 1997 caused her to lose her singing voice and resulted in a medical malpractice lawsuit. 

After consulting with two doctors at New York’s Mount Sinai Hospital due to discomfort whilst singing, Julie Andrews found out that she had noncancerous nodules on her vocal cords. Whilst these nodules can generally be treated without surgery, Julie Andrews opted to have a throat operation in 1997 to resolve the issue. Unfortunately, the operation was botched, and she was left with hoarseness and permanent vocal cord damage. She could no longer sing on a professional level - something which had been the foundation upon which her livelihood and fame were built.

Wrongful death and medical malpractice are two terms that confuse many people. They’re very closely linked, with the key distinguishing feature being that as a result of a medical practitioner's negligence, you or a family member dies a premature death. Examples of types of medical malpractice that lead to wrongful death include:

As of 22 July 2019, it has officially been reported that an infection outbreak has occurred in patients across Kentucky, Indiana, and Ohio. In a shocking case of medical malpractice, the outbreak was caused by a Mount Sterling doctor who allowed his unlicensed wife to mishandle vaccinations. 

The Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure is aware of the situation and has placed Dr. Paul E. McLaughlin on five years’ probation. He has also been ordered to pay $5,000 for assigning the task to his wife who does not have a medical license - ultimately causing the public health crisis.

Medical malpractice is sometimes also known as medical negligence. It occurs when a healthcare professional, or provider, does not provide you with the correct treatment or provides you with substandard treatment. If these professionals and providers fail to take appropriate action to treat your condition, then medical malpractice is said to occur. 

Based on this, a medical malpractice lawsuit makes it possible for you or your family member to receive compensation from the harm that resulted from this sub-standard treatment.

Medical malpractice is something which occurs when a healthcare professional fails to provide you with appropriate treatment, omits to take appropriate action, or gives substandard treatment that causes harm, injury, or even death to you or a family member.

Medical malpractice lawsuits make it possible for you or your family member to recover compensation from any harm that has resulted from sub-standard treatment.

As of 2017, it was reported by “Medscape” that there were between 15,000 and 19,000 medical malpractice lawsuits in the United States alone. These statistics can be further broken down to reveal the following:
