Birth Defects Report Urges All Newborns be Screened for Heart Birth Defects with Simple Test

Our Fort Myers Birth Defect Attorneys announce that reports show that an inexpensive, non-invasive and very simple test could detect severe heart birth defects in newborn babies within a day of birth, possibly sparing them from more serious complications later on. The test, known as pulse oximetry, can pick up cardiac birth defects in three quarters of the babies who have them within just 24 hours of birth, according to a review published this month in The Lancet.

Heart birth defects are a leading cause of death in newborns. But detected early, treatment can result in good outcomes. Unfortunately, only about half of all newborns with a cardiac defect are diagnosed before they leave the hospital.

Detecting Birth Defects

Pulse oximetry uses a sensor on the foot to measure blood oxygen levels, with measurements given instantly, in a digital display. Low oxygenation could indicate the presence of a congenital heart defect. Hospitals have long debated routine use of the test to detect heart birth defects, but its accuracy was held in question. Since 2011, four states in the United States have passed laws that require newborns to undergo pulse oximetry. The finding of The Lancet study could accelerate that trend.

Researchers at Queen Mary, University of London and the University of Birmingham, reviewed 13 studies involving more than 230,000 babies that evaluated the use of pulse oximetry to accurately detect heart defects in newborns. The study authors included newborns without symptoms who were screened for critical congenital heart defects that could kill the baby or require invasive procedures like surgery in the first 28 days of life.

According to the study, pulse oximetry showed an accuracy rate of 99.9 percent, and detected 76.5 percent of all congenital heart-defect cases and had a low false-positive rate of .14 percent. The risk of a false positive result was even lower when the baby was tested more than a day after birth, rather than within the first 24 hours

“The findings of this meta-analysis provide compelling evidence for introduction of pulse oximetry as a screening method in clinical practice,” the authors write. “The sensitivity of the test is higher than present strategies based on antenatal screening and clinical examination, and the false-positive rate is very low, especially when done after 24 hours of birth.”

How To Deal With Insurance Adjusters After Accidents

This article provides several tips and important information for dealing with insurance adjusters after you have been involved in an accident.

Serious Car Accident Picture

Serious Car Accident Picture

Being involved in a car accident, bus accident, trucking accident, motorcycle accident, or any other accident with serious injuries can be devastating. In addition to the ever-rising medical bills, you are left to struggle to meet the costs demanded of daily living: paying the rent, buying food, and taking care of your family and children. When you are facing serious accident injuries and tremendous medical bills, you may be tempted to accept the first personal injury settlement offer presented to you by an insurance company or insurance adjuster. This article will hopefully provide you with valuable information about how to deal with insurance adjusters after accidents.

The First Offers From Insurance Companies Are Usually Low

The first accident injury settlement offer an insurance adjuster makes is usually on the low end, even if it sounds like a lot of money to you. Remember, insurance adjusters work for the insurance company and are trained to settle claims for the least amount of money possible. This is their business. Hiring an experienced Florida accident injury attorney can help level the playing field for you and your family. Our firm’s aggressive Florida accident injury attorney team consists of strong advocates fighting for your best interests in obtaining you maximum compensation for your insurance settlement.

Insurance Adjusters Think Accident Injury Victims Don’t Know The Value Of Their Claim

Serious Bus Accident Picture

Serious Bus Accident Picture

Many accident injury victims are not aware of the value of their claim and jump at the first offer from the insurance company. This is where an experienced accident injury attorney can help you deal with the insurance companies. Our experienced accident injury attorneys can help you calculate both immediate and future damages of your accident injuries. Some examples of serious damages from accident injuries include the following:

  • medical bills,
  • time missed from work (both now and in the future),
  • loss of earning potential,
  • impact of injury on lifestyle,
  • pain and suffering and
  • any other out-of-pocket expenses you may have incurred as a result of being involved in an accident.

What You Say To An Insurance Company Can Minimize The Value Of Your Claim

When an insurance adjustor contacts you to “help you settle your claim,” remember that he or she may try to get you to say things that will minimize the value of your claim. For this reason, it is important to have an experienced Florida accident injury attorney that knows how to deal with insurance adjusters after accidents and either negotiate a settlement or file an accident injury lawsuit on your behalf. Even if you try to cooperate with the at-fault party’s insurance company, your statements may be used against you and misconstrued to diminish the amount of money that you are legally entitled to receive for your accident injuries.

Early Contact By The Insurance Company Is A Strategy To Minimize Your Claim

Insurance Adjuster Waiver of Damage Form

Insurance Adjuster Waiver of Damage Form

Insurance adjusters also commonly try to contact accident victims soon after an accident before the victims are able to fully assess their injuries and/or damages. Often times, injuries take time to show up and are not discovered immediately after an accident. Some injuries even require significant treatment into the foreseeable future. By executing a waiver or any documents proposed by the insurance company before you are unaware of the full extent of your injuries and how they may impact your future, you may waive your right to receive compensation that could help get you back on your feet and back to work. It is best to refuse to speak to an insurance adjuster until you consult a qualified Florida accident injury attorney about how to deal with insurance adjusters after accidents.

After reaching a fair settlement with an insurance company, you may be asked to sign a “Release and Waiver” form. This form prevents you from filing additional claims or additional lawsuits in the future and asks you to give up certain rights that you may otherwise be entitled to. It is a good idea to have an experienced Florida accident injury attorney look over a “Release and Waiver” form before you sign it to make sure your best interests are protected.

A sound practice is to hire an attorney to handle all communication with an insurance company or insurance adjuster. Our experienced accident injury attorneys are generally able to settle accident injury claims for more money than accident victims who try to settle claims on their own. Remember, if you have been injured in a car accident, bus accident, trucking accident, motorcycle accident, or any other type of accident resulting in serious injuries, please call our experienced Florida accident injury attorneys toll free at (888) 252-0048 to receive a free consultation for your accident.

Brain Injuries: How To Identify Brain Injury and Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can easily overwhelm a family psychologically and physically. TBI symptoms, which are easily overlooked, can make matters even worse and will sometimes be so discreet and hidden that doctors will fail to diagnose them. If these signs and symptoms are ignored, untreated brain symptoms may contribute to more intense brain damage, disability, or even death.

Mild symptoms of TBI Concussion

Example of Coup Injury and Contrecoup Injury

Example of Coup Injury and Contrecoup Injury

Mild traumatic brain injury symptoms, sometimes referred to as a concussion, are less obvious and vary depending on the victim. Someone suffering from a concussion may only be unconscious for a few seconds or minutes, or they may not be knocked out at all. Actually, someone who experiences a mild brain injury may only be stunned momentarily or, surprisingly, remain fully aware of their surroundings.

Some generally mild TBI symptoms include lightheadedness, unconsciousness for no more than thirty (30) minutes, part-time memory loss, blurry eyesight, foul taste in mouth, and confusion. Mild traumatic brain injury symptoms or signs of TBI might not show up right away; since these symptoms are often triggered by inflammation of the brain, which occurs at a slow rate, days or even weeks may go by before there are any signs of these symptoms. Any evidence of depression, anxiety, sleeplessness, severe headaches, daydreaming, or memory loss can indicate more severe, long-term brain damage.

Instant mild TBI symptoms

  • Confusion
  • Temporary memory loss
  • Tinnitus (ringing of the ears)
  • Nausea
  • Slurred speech
  • Headache
  • Unconsciousness (under 30 minutes)
  • Lethargy
  • Dilated pupils

Secondary mild TBI symptoms

  • Mood swings
  • Intense headaches/migraines
  • Inability to sleep
  • More serious memory loss
  • Noticeable difference in the way things smell and taste
  • Attention problems
  • Depression
  • Exhaustion
  • Sensitivity to bright light and loud noise
  • Vertigo

Moderate to severe symptoms of TBI

Examples of Brain Injuries

Examples of Brain Injuries

Moderate to severe traumatic brain injury symptoms or TBI signs are more defined and include headaches that intensify or linger, unconsciousness for greater than 30 minutes, nausea and/or vomiting, bowel control problems, slurred speech, memory loss, seizures, dilation of at least one pupil, and paralysis or lack of sensation in extremities.

Bleeding inside the head, or intracranial bleeding, is also a common side effect. The amount of intracranial bleeding is measured with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography scan (CT scan), or intracranial pressure monitor (ICP). This sort of internal bleeding can have horrible implications because even if it is addressed, it can contribute to chronic problems and even death.

People suffering from moderate to severe brain injury often enter a comatose state and may never regain consciousness. A coma is a very serious complication which stems from TBI, but once a victim reaches a state of coma, it does not mean that they are definitely going to die. TBI patients can be in a coma for days or weeks before reacting to any outside stimulation. Physicians gauge comas with the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) or the Rancho Los Amigos Coma Scale. These two scales serve as a guide to figure out the level of a coma’s severity and whether the victim has a chance to come out of it.

Instant moderate to severe TBI symptoms

  • Unconsciousness (greater than 30 minutes)
  • Unsteadiness
  • Breathing at a slower pace
  • Tiredness
  • Confusion
  • Dilated pupils
  • Blurry eyesight or total loss of vision
  • Reduced heart rate
  • Vomiting
  • Severe headache or migraine
  • Ringing of the ears or worsened hearing

Secondary moderate to severe TBI symptoms

  • Incoherency
  • Spinal fluid (clear liquid) excreted from ears or nose (indicates severe brain injury)
  • Jumbled speech
  • Loss of feeling in extremities (indicates severe brain injury)
  • Coma (indicates severe brain injury)
  • Amnesia
  • Paralysis (indicates severe brain injury)
  • Emotional instability (e.g., short temper, depression)
  • Inability to verbally communicate
  • No control over bowels (indicates severe brain injury)
  • Epilepsy or seizures (indicates severe brain injury)

Symptoms related to mild, moderate, or severe traumatic brain injuries or TBI are not easy to pinpoint. The slightest of symptoms may not appear immediately and can be hiding serious brain damage. Thus, it is critical to seek immediate medical attention to diagnose, treat, and help the victim deal with potential traumatic brain injury or TBI. If you or a loved one have suffered what you believe to be a traumatic brain injury or TBI from an accident, contact our firm to speak with an experienced accident injury attorney to help you get the compensation you deserve to help get you through this devastating injury.

Cancer Misdiagnosis Attorneys-Medical Malpractice

Cancer Misdiagnosis Lawyers in Florida, Gilman Law LLP, Personal Injury Attorneys

A Cancer Misdiagnosis hurts a patients’ chance for a long survival rate, causing wrongful deaths to rise. Detecting and correctly diagnosing cancer is a key factor in a patients’ successful treatment, having a higher survival rate and decreased costs of medical bills for cancer patients. Many doctors fail to diagnose cancer by failing to order proper tests, or by misreading tests. If treatment is delayed, the patient may need much more extensive surgery, chemotherapy or radiation than they might otherwise have needed. Early diagnosis of cancer can mean the difference between life and death. The Florida personal injury law firm of Gilman Law LLP is experienced in handling cancer misdiagnosis/wrongful death lawsuits and will strive to get you the compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering.

Treating cancer after an incorrect or missed diagnosis involves more drastic forms of treatment such as higher dosages of radiation and chemotherapy. Such intense treatments are painful and debilitating and place an added burden of increased expenses for the patient who is already buried in medical bills.

Often, physicians fail to take a patient’s complaint seriously, and in turn do not fully examine the patient. The following are frequently reported types of negligence by doctors in misdiagnosed cancer cases:

  • Failure in identifying an obvious lump during a breast examination
  • Not ordering x-rays, CT scans or MRI’s
  • Not evaluating cancer tests properly
  • Unable to recognize symptoms that are common to the form of cancer the patient is being evaluated for.
  • Mistaking a tumor for an infection or diagnosing the tumor as benign
  • failure to perform a follow-up on test results
  • Not ordering a biopsy
  • Failure to request/order additional tests
  • Failure to perform a patient follow-up examination/discussion

If a correct and early cancer diagnosis is discovered, many cancer cases of cancer are preventable or can be completely treated. A delay in treatment can seriously affect survival rates and the quality of life that a patient experiences. The following cancer types respond especially well to early treatment and diagnosis in most cases:

  • Breast
  • Lung/Thoracic
  • Prostate
  • Colon/Rectal
  • Ovarian
  • Cervical
  • Testicular
  • Kidney
  • Skin/Melanoma

Breast Cancer is Commonly Misdiagnosed

Early diagnosis of breast cancer is critical to start treatment and increase your chances for survival before the cancer spreads. Approximately ten percent of all women will be afflicted with breast cancer in their life. Many physicians will misdiagnose breast cancer as something less dangerous, which can lead to disastrous consequences. Some tests for diagnosis of breast cancer include self-examination or physical breast examination by a doctor, mammography, ultrasound, computerized tomography, fine needle aspiration and biopsy. Misread mammograms are most often the cause for cancer misdiagnosis of the breast.

If you are experiencing pain, suffering or severe financial hardships in Florida due to a cancer misdiagnosis, the medical malpractice/negligence attorney at Gilman Law LLP are here to help protect you legal rights. You should not be paying for your doctor’s mistakes or negligence.
If you or a loved one are living with the consequences of a doctor error or cancer misdiagnosis, it is important to contact experienced medical malpractice and negligence lawyers who can get you the compensation to which you are entitled in accordance with state and federal law.

If your cancer was not diagnosed early enough, contact Gilman Law LLP in our Florida offices in Bonita Springs, Ft. Myers and Naples for a free, confidential, no-obligation case evaluation or call us at 1-800-LAW-INFO(1-800-529-4636). Our medical malpractice lawyers can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral Palsy, Childbirth Brain Injury may result from Medical Malpractice/Negligence

Birth Injuries:
Erb’s Palsy | Childbirth Injuries

Cerebral Palsy is a disability resulting from injury to the brain before, during or after birth. The Florida medical malpractice attorneys at Gilman Law LLP have a great deal of experience representing the victims of Cerebral Palsy that is the result of medical malpractice. Our medical malpractice lawyers know how devastating a Cerebral Palsy diagnosis can be, and are aware of the emotional and financial costs of such medical malpractice. We are committed to obtaining the best possible financial results for the victims of medical malpractice and their families. If you or a loved one has been victimized by medical malpractice or medical negligence, we urge you to contact one of the Florida medical malpractice attorneys at Gilman Law LLP immediately. Our compassionate and committed medical malpractice lawyers are dedicated to helping the victims of medical malpractice that results in Cerebral Palsy get their lives back on track.

Was a Cerebral Palsy diagnosis for your child caused by medical malpractice?

Cerebral Palsy describes a group of disorders and brain injuries that affect movement control. There is not one specific cause of cerebral palsy, but it can be caused by injury to the brain before, during, or after birth. Very often, such injuries are caused by medical malpractice. The Cerebral Palsy medical malpractice lawyers at Gilman Law LLP will help determine the cause of your child’s condition. The medical providers caring for the expectant mother and the fetus are responsible to assure that they provide adequate care during the pregnancy, during labor and delivery, and immediately after the delivery of the infant. If a doctor or other medical staff fails to interpret and respond accordingly to the changing conditions of the fetus during labor or fails to act on changes in the mother’s condition during pregnancy, they may be found negligent and be held responsible for the child’s injuries.
Failure to perform a Cesarean section in the presence of fetal distress, failure to deliver the infant when the membranes have been ruptured for too long, and excessive use of vacuum extraction can all lead to serious medical malpractice birth injuries. Often, lack of oxygen to the brain or trauma to the head during labor and delivery can cause Cerebral Palsy. Some indications of lack of oxygen to the baby’s brain include: poor sucking after birth, seizures shortly after birth, floppiness of the baby, blue skin, poor breathing resulting in resuscitation, problems maintaining normal body temperature, meconium staining on the baby. Also, if your baby suffers from Cerebral Palsy and your water was broken for more than 24 hours before delivery or if you experienced bleeding or high blood pressure, there is a chance that medical malpractice caused your baby’s condition.

If you are unsure whether your baby has Cerebral Palsy, some signs include:

  • Lethargy, or lack of alertness
  • Irritability or fussiness
  • Abnormal, high-pitched cry
  • Trembling of the arms and legs
  • Poor feeding abilities
  • Low muscle tone
  • Abnormal posture, such as the child favoring one side of their body
  • Seizures, staring spells, eye fluttering, body twitching
  • Abnormal reflexes
  • Muscle tone may change gradually from low tone to high tone; a baby may go from floppy to very stiff
  • The child may hold his or her hand in tight fists
  • There may be asymmetries of movement, that is, one side of the body may move more easily and freely than the other side
  • Developmental delay, with skills such as rolling over, sitting up, crawling, walking and talking

The Florida medical malpractice attorneys at Gilman Law LLP have won many Cerebral Palsy cases and helped hundreds of families deal with the burden of their child’s condition. The victims of medical malpractice and their families often face a lifetime of financial and emotional turmoil, and our medical malpractice lawyers can help you get the compensation you and your child deserve.

Childbirth Injuries

Childbirth Injuries Include Cerebral Palsy, Erb’s Palsy

Birth Injuries:
Erb’s Palsy | Cerebral Palsy

Childbirth Injuries can be caused by medical negligence at the time of birth and the attorneys at Gilman Law LLP located in Florida are experienced in childbirth injury litigation. Our medical malpractice lawyers know how devastating birth injuries can be, and are aware of the emotional and financial costs of such medical malpractice. Our personal injury law firm is committed to obtaining the best possible financial results for the victims of medical malpractice and their families. If you or a loved one has been victimized by medical malpractice or medical negligence, we urge you to contact one of the Florida medical malpractice attorneys at Gilman Law LLP immediately. Our compassionate and committed medical malpractice lawyers are dedicated to helping the victims of medical malpractice and birth injuries get their lives back on track.

If medical malpractice during labor or delivery caused a birth injury to your child that resulted from complications in the process of labor and delivery and from medical malpractice or negligence by the doctors and hospitals, you may be eligible for financial compensation. Childbirth injuries can cause a wide variety of problems for a newborn baby, ranging from mild to severe, and may mean a long road of medical care and emotional turmoil for a family. Parents may not know whether their child has an unpreventable birth defect, or whether the impairment was the result of medical malpractice or medical negligence. Our medical negligence attorneys can help families determine if a birth injury was not preventable, or if medical negligence or malpractice on the part of a doctor or hospital was responsible for the injury.

Each year, about 27 of 1,000 live births result in birth injuries, many of which are caused by medical malpractice or negligence. Delaying or failing to perform a needed C-section is a common cause of birth injuries, as is a physician’s use of excessive force during the delivery, or a miscalculation in the size of the baby. Another major cause of birth injuries is oxygen deprivation which occurs when the umbilical cord is compressed or twisted in the birth process. Mechanical trauma is another typical cause of birth injuries. Mechanical trauma may occur when the baby assumes an unusual position at the time of birth (buttocks rather than head first, for example) or when the baby is too large to easily pass through the birth canal easily. Birth injuries can also be the result of bleeding within the skull or brain, which can lead to long-term seizure disorders. All of these problems during labor and delivery can result in a variety of birth injuries, including:

  • brachial plexus. BPI can be caused by shoulder dystocia, where the baby’s shoulder is stuck behind the mother’s pubic bone during birth. The brachial plexus network causes the arm and hand to move. BPI children can have partial or total paralysis of the arms and hands.
  • Cerebral Palsy: A disability resulting from injury to the brain before, during or shortly after birth. In some cases, the injury is caused by low levels of oxygen suffered before or during birth. This can be the result of negligent medical care, or a mistake made by your doctor, midwife or nurse during the birthing process.
  • Brain Damage
  • Temporary Paralysis
  • Fractured Collar Bone

Childbirth injuries can be caused by a delay in performing a C-section or complication with a vaginal birth after a C-Section such as uterine rupture, use of excessive force during the delivery, or a miscalculation in the size of the baby. One major cause of birth injuries is oxygen deprivation which occurs when the umbilical cord is compressed or twisted in the birth process. The other main cause is mechanical trauma, which may occur when the baby assumes an unusual position at the time of birth (buttocks rather than head first, for example) or when the baby is too large to pass through the birth canal easily. Birth injuries can be the result of bleeding within the skull or brain, which can lead to long-term seizure disorders. Birth injuries have been reported to occur in 27 of 1,000 live births.

If your child has suffered a birth injury as a result of medical malpractice or negligence, please contact Gilman Law LLP for a free, confidential, no-obligation case evaluation.
