Medical Malpractice

It is not unusual for accidents to occur when undergoing medical treatment.  However, when an injury results from medical treatment that deviates from accepted standards of 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.  In cases of wanton and reckless conduct, punitive damages can also be attained for the victim.

Medical malpractice cases typically require a significant amount of research and careful presentation to be successfully litigated.   This is because a successful outcome requires proof that there was a failure to provide a level of care that is commensurate with accepted standards 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 medical injuries or wrongful death.  Medical malpractice can often occur as a result of:

  • Misdiagnosis of cancer
  • Misdiagnosis of cardiac conditions
  • Misdiagnosis in pediatrics
  • Prescribing experimental drugs
  • Performing cosmetic surgery
  • Birth injuries or death resulting from delayed C-section procedure, 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 infection
  • Nursing home neglect

In addition, medical malpractice can also result from caregiver negligence, improper hiring, poor training and managerial incompetence. Because medical malpractice claims can be complex and difficult to prove, we work closely with qualified medical experts to assist with litigation, both in and out of court.

If you or someone you love has suffered a serious injury as the result of the negligence of a doctor, hospital, nurse or other medical professional or facility, contact us today to arrange a consultation.
