Medical Malpractice

Patients have a right to expect a certain standard of care when it comes to receiving medical treatment. When there is a lapse in that standard of care and a patient becomes a victim of medical negligence, the results can be life-changing, if not fatal. If you think you could be a victim of medical malpractice, contact us.

Common Types of Medical Malpractice Cases

We can evaluate your case for free, and we are available to advocate aggressively for full compensation of your losses. Your medical malpractice case deserves a team of skilled attorneys on your side. Our team is available to handle cases of:

  • Nursing home neglect, where a resident of a nursing home or elder community does not receive the physical and emotional attention that they deserve. This may come in the form of negligence, medication errors, and even abuse.
  • Surgical errors, which are errors that occurred during surgery that could have been prevented. While there is some element of risk in all surgeries, surgical errors are mistakes that the surgical team made by failing to meet the standard of care resulting in a serious injury to the patient.
  • Anesthesia errors, similar to surgical errors, occur when a medical professional makes a mistake that could have been prevented. If administering the anesthesia, whether it was the wrong dose or the wrong kind, resulted in injury to the patient, the patient may have a medical malpractice case.
  • Birth injuries are injuries that affect the mother or child during or after childbirth. Injuries can occur during a birth even when the procedure follows all best practices, but they can become medical malpractice cases if the doctors and/or nurses involved could have prevented the injury.
  • Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis is frustrating for any patient. When a doctor fails to diagnose early enough, the patient’s condition can worsen because it didn’t receive proper care. Misdiagnosis can be equally detrimental because while the patient receives the wrong treatment, his or her real condition deteriorates.
