What is Medical Malpractice?


Author: Malcolm P. "Mic" McConnell, III, Richmond, VA Medical Malpractice Attorney

I am often invited to speak to physicians and other professionals and laymen about medical malpractice issues. On such occasions, I share the same information I provide to every client who seeks my advice and assistance with a potential medical malpractice claim: I define "medical malpractice" for them. However, I have found that the best way to tell people what medical malpractice IS, is to tell them what medical malpractice is NOT.

Medical malpractice is NOT that a doctor made a mistake. Doctors are human. They are not all-knowing, they are not all-powerful, and they are not perfect. They are "allowed"…

What To Do When a Product Fails or Malfunctions and Causes An Injury

Robert C. T. Reed

Author: Robert C. T. Reed, Richmond, VA Personal Injury Attorney

Nearly everything we use on a daily basis is either a product or something that requires the use of one. Unfortunately, even products that seem harmless can cause injuries when they malfunction or fail to perform their function as they were intended.  Injuries that result from the failure of common products often come as a complete surprise to the victim.  Sometimes, the injured person does not even realize that their injury was the result of poor design or a manufacturing defect in the product.  By the time it occurs to them that their injury was probably preventable, they have thrown the defective product away.  This is why it is important…
