What constitutes medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice cases can be complicated and require the evaluation of medical experts. At our law firm, we consult with specialists to determine whether the client was provided with treatment that met the acceptable standard of medical care. The input of these professionals allows us to build strong cases. The research and expertise they provide are instrumental in helping us to be prepared for any situation in court pertaining to a medical malpractice case. Examples of medical malpractice include the following:
- Misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis or failure to diagnose illnesses such as cancer, heart disease and other serious conditions
- Failure to conduct appropriate tests
- Surgical errors such as operating on the wrong body part or leaving medical instruments inside the patient
- Birth injuries that result in abrasions, palsey, developmental delays
- Medication, prescription and anesthesia errors
- Emergency room errors
In addition to working to obtain fair compensation for patients who were injured by medical providers, we also make sure that clients obtain the proper treatment so that they can begin to recover from their injuries.
