Understanding Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional fails to meet accepted standards of medical care, resulting in patient injury or harm. Examples of medical negligence include:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of a medical condition
  • Surgical errors and mistakes during child delivery
  • Improper medication prescription or incorrect dosage
  • Failure to order necessary medical tests
  • Lack of informed consent before procedures.

The most common medical malpractice claims involve doctors, nurses, surgeons, dentists, chiropractors, psychiatrists and more. Hospitals can also be held liable.

If you incurred additional medical costs, lost wages, or other damages due to incompetence or oversight, you may have a legitimate malpractice case. A lawyer can help determine if negligence occurred.

Hospital Negligence Cases

Hospital Negligence Cases

We handle a range of hospital negligence cases when substandard care causes patient harm, such as:

  • Surgical errors - mistakes during surgery often lead to severe health issues. Botched procedures, organ perforation, and objects left inside patients after surgery are examples. Surgeons violating standard protocols or lacking proper skills can be grounds for a claim.
  • Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose - failing to detect illnesses in a timely manner or incorrectly diagnosing patients can worsen conditions and impact treatment. Catching issues early is critical for positive outcomes.
  • Childbirth injuries - mistakes during prenatal care or delivery can inflict permanent damage. Birth injuries like Erb’s or Klumpke’s palsy, cerebral palsy and brachial plexus injuries may warrant investigation.
  • Prescription errors - incorrect prescriptions, bad interactions or improper doses of medication can cause organ damage, confusion, seizures and other consequences.
  • Infections and injuries - poor hygiene practices can spread infections. Preventable pressure ulcers or falls that occur in hospitals point to neglect.

Hospital negligence can be life-altering for patients. Our firm consults with medical specialists to prove misconduct and secure maximum compensation.

Documenting Your Hospital Negligence Case

Building a strong medical malpractice claim requires collecting and preserving key evidence. Medical records provide essential documentation - we obtain complete files including emergency room charts, surgical records, specialist reports and more. Our medical experts and legal team thoroughly review them for discrepancies that strengthen your position.

We also gather witness statements from both medical and non-medical observers. Eyewitness accounts from family members, for example, may reveal useful details. Our lawyers take written and video recorded statements from parties with information that reinforces negligence claims.

Finally, we consult with medical experts who can analyze records and provide testimony supporting allegations of substandard care. Highly-qualified specialists help substantiate and argue hospital negligence.

Compensation in Medical Negligence Claims

No amount of money can make up for grave harm incurred under a healthcare professional’s watch. But financial recovery can provide stability in the aftermath. Our goal is obtaining maximum compensation to cover all damages suffered. We have helped past clients secure funds for:

  • Medical expenses from hospital stays, surgeries, rehabilitation and ongoing care
  • Lost income and reduced earning capacity
  • Cost of at-home nursing care and life equipment
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium for impact on family relationships
  • Wrongful death damages (income loss, funeral expenses, loss of companionship, etc.)

By calculating and fighting for full, fair compensation, we ease the financial stress on victims following medical errors.
