Ed McMahon Settles Medical Malpractice Suit

medical malpractice attorneyAccording to, former television star Ed McMahon has reached a settlement in a medical malpractice suit against Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. McMahon filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against the hospital claiming that in 2007 the staff at Cedars-Sinai had misdiagnosed a neck fracture he suffered. McMahon’s suit sought damages for the misdiagnoses as well as two allegedly botched surgeries following the diagnoses.

The article further mentions that McMahon is pursuing a personal injury lawsuit against the owner of the mansion where McMahon suffered the neck injury. According to the story, McMahon’s attorneys are filing an action in Superior Court to ban any mention of his Cedar-Sinai settlement in the injury lawsuit.

Medical malpractice is a complicated legal issue. McMahon’s case addresses two potential sources of medical errors: misdiagnosis and surgical mistakes. Misdiagnosis incorrectly identifies complaints or overlooks serious medical conditions in such a way that undue harm and distress is suffered by the patient. Another example of misdiagnosis is when a physician fails to properly take into account a patient’s allergies or pre-existing conditions when prescribing medication or a course of treatment.

Surgical errors can range from using unsanitary instruments to operating on the wrong tissues. Excessive damage to internal organs, incorrect incisions and failure to properly manage post-operative care are all examples of surgical errors that can lead to medical malpractice lawsuits.
