We look to our physicians with trust and respect, so it can be truly traumatic when instances of medical malpractice arise. In addition to the emotional and psychological pain of having been mistreated due to improper medical practices or outright negligence, medical malpractice can result in serious and even life-threatening consequences that will forever change the lives of a victim and his or her loved ones.
Because most medical providers require that plaintiffs file a lawsuit in situations like these, it’s very important to have a lawyer with experience in the area of medical malpractice on your side. We will fight to hold those responsible for your injuries accountable for your suffering and losses.
There are many different types of medical malpractice that can contribute to the increased or prolonged suffering of a victim or even lead to death. If you believe that irresponsible action or inaction by a physician or surgeon may have caused injury to you or a loved one, it’s important to act quickly.
One of the most common types of medical malpractice comes in when a doctor misdiagnoses or does not timely diagnose a significant illness or condition. As an example, a doctor may state that a mass found in the victim is benign when it is in fact cancerous. Because no treatment occurs, the victim becomes sicker, prolonging their suffering and decreasing the chances of successful treatment. Loss of life can even occur.
Mistakes in prescribing or administering medication can also be just cause for a medical malpractice suit. Should a physician, nurse, or pharmacist prescribe, deliver, or administer the wrong type or quantity of medication to a patient, serious bodily harm and/or death can occur.
Whatever the case may be, we’re here to help you fight for justice. The medical field is a complex area that demands constant vigilance and precision and our job is to hold medical providers responsible for injury or loss they cause when the care provided is below standard.
