Common Medical Malpractice Cases We Handle

Medical errors and negligence can happen across virtually any healthcare setting and specialty. Some of the more common types of medical malpractice and negligence cases we pursue compensation for victims with include:

Birth Injuries
  • Brain damage
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Brachial plexus injuries

These often occur when doctors or nurses fail to promptly diagnose or respond to fetal distress, use improper birthing methods, or make other mistakes during labor and delivery.

Surgical Errors
  • Wrong-site surgery
  • Foreign objects left inside patients after surgery
  • Damage to organs/nerves
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Infection due to negligence

Reckless mistakes during surgical procedures can cause serious harm or death.

Failure to Diagnose
  • Cancer
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Infections
  • Other conditions

Spotting and accurately diagnosing conditions in a timely manner is critical for patient outcomes. Missed or delayed diagnoses often lead to preventable harm.

Medication Errors
  • Wrong drugs or dosages prescribed
  • Adverse reactions not addressed properly
  • Administering medication to the wrong patient
  • Ignoring harmful drug interactions

Prescribing and administering medications requires great care to avoid human errors.

Nursing Home Abuse
  • Bedsores
  • Dehydration or malnutrition
  • Unsanitary conditions
  • Physical/emotional abuse

Elderly nursing home residents often depend entirely on staff for care and are vulnerable to neglect and abuse.

And other types of medical negligence. If your incident involved harm that could have been prevented by reasonable medical care, we want to help you pursue your case.

How We Investigate Medical Malpractice Cases

How We Investigate Medical Malpractice Cases

If you have suffered harm due to potential medical negligence, conducting a thorough investigation is key to determining if you have a valid malpractice claim. Here is an overview of how our legal team approaches investigating cases to uncover breaches in the standard of care.

Gathering Medical Records and Documents

The first step our lawyers take is collecting all relevant medical paperwork tied to the alleged negligence. This includes things like:

  • Hospital charts and progress notes
  • Test results, scans, and pathology reports
  • Doctor's notes and logs
  • Pharmacy/medication records
  • Billing statements
  • And more

We leave no stone unturned when gathering the documentation that paints a full picture of the care received.

Consulting Medical Experts to Review the Records

Next, we engage medical specialists with appropriate credentials to scrutinize the chart notes, test results, and other records. Identifying deviations from normal protocols and care standards expected within the profession is crucial.

We consult multiple independent experts across specialties to get objective unbiased opinions regarding whether acceptable standards were breached. Thorough record reviews from several experts carry significant weight.

Interviewing Involved Healthcare Professionals

Our lawyers also contact the treating doctors, nurses, surgeons, anesthesiologists, specialists, and any other providers involved to ask follow up questions. Discrepancies in the accounts given can further strengthen investigation findings.

Assessing Accuracy of Medical Facility Incident Reports

Unfortunately, internal reports from the involved hospital or medical facility itself often appear more favorable to the providers than an independent investigation. But reviewing these initial incident reports and analysis for inconsistencies still provides value.

Reconstructing Sequence of Events Leading to Injury

With the medical records, expert reviews, interviews, internal reports, and our client’s detailed accounting of events, our legal team pieces together an accurate timeline of exactly what happened leading up to the resulting medical injury or death.

Armed with a thoroughly documented independent investigation demonstrating where standards of care were breached and how it caused undue harm, we build a strong case on our client’s behalf. A credible finding of medical negligence provides leverage in seeking a fair settlement from insurance companies.
