What to Do

Medical malpractice can have a devastating impact on a person and a family. Not every bad outcome is a result of medical malpractice and in some cases it can be hard to tell if medical malpractice occurred. Many people wonder: have I been the victim of medical malpractice?

If you think you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice, we strongly recommend that you consult with a medical malpractice attorney experienced with winning medical malpractice cases. Our medical malpractice attorneys can help you determine whether you’ve been a victim of malpractice, and, if you have, will do all they can to get you justice and compensation.

What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor or health care professional fails to provide a standard of care to a patient. Medical malpractice may occur:

  • Due to a failure to diagnosis a patient’s condition. We have won cases where doctors failed to run a basic test or misread test results, which delayed a diagnosis or treatment.
  • During an operation when a doctor makes an unacceptable error. A doctor may operate on the wrong body part or perform the procedure incorrectly.
  • Due to procedural errors in a hospital or nursing home.
  • Due to a failure to monitor a patient in a hospital or a nursing home.

Additionally, medical malpractice can happen:

  • After an operation due to a post-operative infection or medical error.
  • Due to a wrong prescription.
  • At birth and leave a patient with devastating results. As parents, mistreatment of children holds a special meaning for us.
