Blue Cross quickly becoming the Toyota of bad business.

By Newport Beach Personal Injury Attorney on February 23, 2010

In a not so surprising turn of events, Anthem Blue Cross has managed to show the face of greed in the course of one month. First it attempted to justify a 17% premium increase for individual policy holders. Note the subtle difference, then did not seek an increase for all policyholders such as corporations and company benefit health plans. The individual policyholder received this increase because Anthem decided their profitability was just not enough last year. (Check the profitability for yourself!)

Doctor gets away with murder by paying $250,000.

By Newport Beach Personal Injury Attorney on February 4, 2010

I continue to write about medical malpractice limitations on damages because of such tragedy that has unfolded as in the example I write about today. A young woman had fallen unexplainably, and had a small cut on her forehead. Because she had fallen without explanation, she went to the emergency room. At the emergency room, she was asked to give a urine sample. Then on her way to the bathroom she fell again. This time, nurses thought she was having a seizure and and did nothing as she laid on the floor for more than a minute. Finally, when a nurse realized that she actually was not breathing, CPR was started and she was moved into an emergency room unit to address her condition.
