It is not unusual for injuries to occur while undergoing medical treatment. However, when an injury results from medical treatment that deviates from accepted standards of medical practice, a medical malpractice lawsuit may be the only way for the patient to recover damages. If you have suffered serious injury at the hands of negligent doctors, hospitals and other medical professionals, you may be entitled to considerable compensation for your pain and suffering, as well as future and past lost wages and medical bills.
Medical malpractice cases typically require a significant amount of research and careful presentation to be successfully litigated. This is because a favorable outcome requires proof that there was a failure to provide a level of care that is commensurate with accepted standards of medical care and that such failure was the cause of the injury.
Our firm is available to handle virtually any type of medical malpractice case, including those that result in major injuries or wrongful death.
Medical malpractice can occur as a result of:
- Misdiagnoses of cancer
- Misdiagnoses of cardiac conditions
- Misdiagnoses of pediatric conditions
- Negligent prescribing of drugs
- Performing cosmetic surgery
- Birth injuries or death resulting from delayed C-section procedures, failure to monitor the fetus, or improper delivery technique
- Emergency room errors
- Gastroenterology errors
- Medical device injuries
- Negligence on the part of a hospital, surgeon, nurse, obstetrician/gynecologist (OB/GYN), or any other doctor or health care worker who fails to follow accepted standards of practice
- Post-surgical infections
- Nursing home neglect
- Lack of informed consent
In addition, medical malpractice may also result from caregiver negligence, improper hiring, poor training and managerial incompetence.
Because medical malpractice claims can be complex and difficult to prove, our firm utilizes advanced tools including computer simulations and real life anatomical illustrations to explain complicated medical issues to a jury. We also work closely with qualified medical experts to assist with litigation, both in and out of court.
