Experienced Representation For Complex Cases

Doctors, nurses and other health care professionals have a responsibility to provide care that meets certain accepted standards. Failing to maintain or meet those standards is the definition of medical malpractice. When they fail to meet those standards of care and cause injuries, they need to be held accountable for the harm their lapses have caused.

Common types of medical malpractice include:

  • Surgical error (wrong-site surgery, foreign object left behind, nicking or perforating a blood vessel, etc.)
  • Failure to diagnose/misdiagnosis (heart attack, stroke, cancer)
  • Birth injury (cerebral palsy, shoulder dystocia, hypoxia)
  • Anesthesia error
  • Medication error
  • Emergency room error

Was Corrective Action Taken Right Away?

One of the ways that doctors and hospitals compound the problems created by a mistake is by denying a mistake was made. Too often a patient may report symptoms that should be taken care of only to be told that everything is fine. Many medical issues are time sensitive. If they are taken care of right away, the person may be fine. If proper treatment is delayed, the problem can become much worse.
