Do and Dont for a Personal Injury Defendant

One of the most common cases that the court handles is personal injury case. These cases involve parties that claim compensation in case of an accident or incident. The compensation covers medical cost or damages to property. The defendant is responsible for paying the plaintiff the compensation costs in case they are found guilty. It is important to note that personal injury cases like malpractice cases are tried under tort law. The amount that the court sets as compensation will vary depending on the injury that the plaintiff incurred. The defendant should build a strong case so that they do not end up paying a lot of money in these types of cases.

Obstetrical Malpractice

Obstetrical malpractice can be defined as a situation whereby the mother or infant experiences some form of defect or harm during labor or delivery as a result of medical negligence. Many people can be held accountable in the event of obstetric malpractice. They include obstetricians, midwifes, family practitioners and nurses.
