Medical malpractice: $6.25 million awarded in 2-year-old's death

The saddest experience parents could have may be burying a child, especially if the child's death was avoidable.

The lawsuit stemmed from the death of a 2-year-old girl back in 2009.

Man files medical malpractice suit after spouse's death

Individuals who need medical care would naturally want to trust in the experience of medical caregivers. However, in Pennsylvania and elsewhere, this is sometimes not the case. A man recently filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against a rehabilitation center in another state.

The plaintiff alleges that although the facility was apparently on notice of substandard practices and ongoing negligence, officials failed to improve the standards to an acceptable level.
