Stupid Malpractice Cases from Medical Justice
We run an anti-malpractice and anti-defamation practice and have found Medical Justice to offer amazing advice from top attorneys in the USA. They also assist powerfully with countersuit lawsuits for the full recovery of all civil damages associated with MD abuse and emotional acting out or ignorant scapegoating suits and bad faith reporting, and seek serious consequences for dubious "experts" and lawyers practicing questionable legal practices with scientific ignorance typically at a 9th grade level, and who feel that any injury means the physician caused it. Every day patients die from hundreds of causes that are part of the many illnesses that cause death. Patients die or are injured from any surgery, medication or herb. This is life. This is the reality of a fallen, decaying body.

Every Day Over 100 Medical Malpractice Lawsuits Are Filed. Some Of The More "Creative" Ones ... , 11/20/2007
Medical Justice received many submissions for the Most Frivolous Lawsuit. The sheer number of submissions is a testament to just how prevalent such lawsuits are. Unfortunately such suits take a long time to evaporate, and occasionally they are settled for nuisance value. These are exactly the types of cases we take aim at.
Failure to Diagnose Death:
A young woman was found at home on the ground by her family. CPR was initiated by family members. It was estimated that she had been "down" for approximately thirty minutes before CPR was started. Paramedics arrived ten minutes later. EKG showed asystole. The paramedics were unable to intubate her or establish IV access. Transport time was yet another ten minutes, so documented time of asystole on EKG was 35 minutes before hitting the ER door. She was then intubated, a central line was inserted, and ACLS protocol was followed. She remained in asystole and was pronounced dead after fifteen minutes. Physician was named in the lawsuit because one of the blood tests noted a potassium just under 13. The allegation: failure to diagnose hyperkalemia. The actual cause of the hyperkalemia was "death and decomposition."
