Malpractice premiums and claims on the decline

Doctors in West Virginia might pay as much as $50,000 to $200,000 per year in medical malpractice insurance premiums, but the rate is not rising. This contrasts with the turn of the century when rates were going up as much as 25 percent. The average jury award was $3 million, and this drove some companies out of the business, leading some doctors to struggle in search of coverage.

Understanding LBD

West Virginia residents who suffer from Lewy body dementia, or LBD, may have their condition misdiagnosed. That's because the condition's symptoms are very similar to well-known diseases like Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. Even though almost 1.4 million people in the United States are believed to have LBD, many medical professionals are not familiar with the condition.
