There are all kinds of ways healthcare professionals breach their duty of care through negligence. Some common medical malpractice cases we handle include:
- Misdiagnosis/Delay in Diagnosis - Failing to diagnose conditions like cancer, infections and vascular issues in time often leads to grave outcomes.
- Child Birth Injuries - When doctors and nurses don't take proper precautions, oxygen deprivation and other birth injuries can result in cerebral palsy, paralysis or death.
- Surgical Errors - Reckless mistakes during surgery such as damage to organs and nerves can profoundly impact patients’ health and well-being.
- Medication Errors - Prescribing the wrong drugs or dosages leads to life-altering harm. So can poor pharmaceutical storage/handling.
- Nursing Home Abuse - We also represent victims who suffered from nursing home negligence and elder abuse.

The physical, emotional and financial toll of medical negligence can profoundly impact victims and their families. While holding healthcare providers accountable is crucial, monetary compensation also provides tangible help in rebuilding lives. There are specific damages victims can pursue.Economic Damages
These cover tangible financial losses tied directly to the malpractice. Some common economic damages include:
- Medical expenses like hospital bills, medications, therapies, at-home care, surgeries to fix preventable injuries, and more.
- Loss of income and future earnings due to missing work, loss of job, or reduced ability to be employed.
- Loss of household contributions for things like childcare, cleaning, errands etc. now requiring paid services.
Documented evidence like receipts, tax returns and doctor reports help substantiate these damages.Non-Economic Damages

- And more
Detailed accounts of lifestyle limitations and mental anguish help convey these substantial burdens. Plaintiffs can also cite comparables from similar cases.Punitive Damages
