Medical Malpractice Attorney

When receiving medical treatment, you trust that your medical professionals will provide you with the best care. Unfortunately, that does not always occur. In fact, each year thousands of incidents of medical malpractice take place, resulting in injuries, disabilities, and death. While these damages cannot be undone, victims and their families can work with a medical malpractice attorney and his team to gain compensation for damages.

“After my free consultation, the attorney, who only pursues very serious medical malpractice cases, explained that my brain injury was such a case and I was so relieved to have found this wonderful legal team that helped our family through one of the hardest things a family can experience.”

Defining Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is an act or continuing conduct of a professional, which does not meet the standard of care and professional competence and results in provable damages, such as serious injuries or death. This negligence occurs due to the healthcare providers failing to adhere to reasonable standards of care. The following are common examples of medical malpractice:

Anesthesia errors

Removing the wrong organ or limb

Sustaining injuries that a patient was not informed of

Causing excessive damage to your body during a surgery

Emergency room errors

Failing to recognize and diagnose obvious symptoms properly

Failing to examine your medical history

Failure to provide the right medication or the right dosage

Medical Malpractice can result in unexpected symptoms such as viral infections, unanticipated blood clots, respiratory infections, bloodstream infections, or internal bleeding.

Experiencing such symptoms or being injured doesn’t necessarily mean you have a medical malpractice case. Contact us so an experienced medical malpractice attorney can help you determine if you have valid legal claims.
