Brain aneurysm signs and treatment

People in Washington State who have heard about brain aneursyms may not always fully understand what these things are or how they may be identified. As explained by the Brain Aneursym Foundation, these little bulges in the sides of blood vessels in the brain do not always produce visible symptoms. However, that does not mean that they are always without symptoms. The fact is that some cases do involve warning signs and these signs require appropriate response.

Testing for brain cancer

While no person in Seattle ever wants to be told by a doctor that they have cancer, there are certain cancers that may be even scarier than others. Being diagnosed with brain cancer, for example, may be particularly upsetting to people. However, not being appropriately diagnosed with brain cancer if a person actually has it, could actually be worse that hearing the words, "You have brain cancer."

Birth injuries: What is cerebral palsy?

Sometimes a baby is born with a serious and debilitating injury that doesn't heal or get better. Babies who are born with birth injuries may require special and costly medical care and other services throughout their lives. In some cases, these special needs children may never be able to live fully independent lives.

Defining surgical never events

To say that something should never happen may seem quite drastic (after all, human error has to be accounted for in almost any situation, right?). However, in certain areas, that should not be an unrealistic expectation. Healthcare is certainly one of them. Many of those that our team here at Miracle Pruzan & Pruzan have worked with in Seattle have failed to have that expectation met due to a medical or (worse yet) surgical mistake. If and when you suffer due to a surgical error, you might justly question how such a blunder could have even happened. 

How do misdiagnoses occur?

When Washington state residents go to a doctor for medical attention, the possibility of being misdiagnosed likely isn't on their mind. Unfortunately, misdiagnoses do happen. If you have suffered because of a medical misdiagnosis, Miracle Pruzan & Pruzan, attorneys at law, are here to help you get the compensation you deserve.

Medical errors to be spotlight on the big screen

As medical science continues to make advances in what is possible, another trend sadly continues. Patients in Washington State become the subjects of medical errors. In some situations, if they are lucky, people experience no injury or negative consequences from these errors. In other situations, however, serious injury and even death can occur. A new documentary is being released that attempts to highlight the grave nature of this reality.
