Our Medical Malpractice Lawyers Understand What You Are Going Through

Each time we go to the hospital or a clinic, we are entrusting someone else with our health and safety. Most of the time, that trust is earned and well-placed. Unfortunately, however, when medical professionals violate that trust by behaving negligently, the consequences can be extremely harmful or even fatal.

We know this is a difficult time for you. We are experienced medical malpractice and personal injury attorneys with a long record of success. We are here to help you get the financial compensation you deserve.

When Is A Medical Mistake Considered Malpractice?

Everyone makes mistakes — it’s just part of being human. But Medical malpractice is more than just a simple error. In order for actions or inaction to be considered medical malpractice, a medical provider must have acted (or failed to act) in a manner that did not meet the expected standard of care, leading to injury or harm. That is, the medical provider made a decision or took a course of action that a reasonable physician would not have done under the same circumstances.

Medical Malpractice Can Occur In Any Care Setting

If a doctor-patient relationship has been established and the patient is receiving care, there is a potential for malpractice to occur. Common examples of malpractice include:

  • Birth injuries (to the baby, the mother or both)
  • Surgical errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Medication errors (wrong medication, wrong dosage, dangerous drug interactions, etc.)
  • Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis
  • Failure to monitor a patient during a critical time

Our medical malpractice lawyers are especially experienced in cases involving surgical errors. While some errors can be difficult to identify as mistakes (by those who aren’t medically trained), other errors are obvious and should never occur. For instance, we have helped patients who suffered serious post-surgical complications because foreign objects (surgical tools and sponges) were left inside their bodies after surgery.
