The Devastating Impacts of Medical Malpractice
A failure to provide standard medical care or treatment is referred to as "medical malpractice". If you or someone you love was injured because a medical professional failed to provide the level of treatment or care that you deserved, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit against the responsible individual or facility.
There are a number of different types of malpractice claims that a person may have, stemming from different behavior by a negligent medical professional. Our law firm handles all of these, including those that involve medication errors, anesthesia malpractice, and surgical errors.
If you or someone you love has been injured when you visited the ER, our team of skilled attorneys can help. Common emergency room errors include wrong diagnosis or misdiagnosis, improper discharge of a patient with a serious condition or incorrect medication.
A cancer misdiagnosis involves the doctor's failure to recognize cancer in a patient and may occur because of misinterpreted test results or a failure to order the appropriate testing. In these cases, a patient may have the grounds to sue for financial compensation that may be needed to cover resulting emotional damages, loss of wages and pain and suffering.
Our firm also has experience in helping the victims of heart attack misdiagnosis. This is a potentially deadly form of medical malpractice that should be taken very seriously. We believe in holding doctors responsible for their responsibility to recognize the signs of a heart attack and administer the proper treatment. Our firm will aggressively advocate for the victims of heart attack misdiagnosis, birth injuries, plastic surgery malpractice and other medical malpractice cases.
