Types of Medical Malpractice Case We Handle
Seemingly countless procedures come into play with the treatment of any medical condition. A single mistake in the chain of treatment can send a patient’s health spiraling out of control.
We accept all types of medical malpractice cases, including, but not limited to, the following:
- Mistake with medication
- Surgery error
- Failure to diagnose/late diagnosis
- Anesthesia error
- Childbirth injury
- Secondary infection
- Failure to advise of treatment risks
- Obstetrics error
If you suffered an injury or the worsening of a condition stemming from a misstep in your medical treatment, you deserve to receive compensation.
Many Medical Practitioners Can Injure a Patient
The treatment of any medical condition involves many hands, from intake personnel and nurses to pharmacists, doctors, and surgeons. At any point along the way, one set of hands can set a patient on the course for a medical disaster.
The medical practitioner responsible for your injury might come from any of the following professions:
- Oral surgeon
- Imaging or lab technician
- Nurse practitioner
If the medical practitioner who caused or worsened your medical condition did so out of negligence, carelessness, or ignorance, they should be held liable for your physical, emotional, and economic losses.
A Facility Could Be At Fault for Your Injury
In some cases, the medical facility where a patient receives treatment makes mistakes or presents conditions that prompt the patient’s injury or medical problem. When this happens, the facility can be liable for the patient’s damages, the same as a medical practitioner would be held accountable.
Examples of the types of facilities that can find themselves in a medical malpractice suit include:
- Doctor’s offices
- Surgery centers
- Urgent care facilities
- Testing labs
- Nursing homes and long-term care facilities
Our legal team will conduct an exhaustive investigation of the facility where you received your medical treatment. If the conditions the facility provided caused or worsened an injury or medical condition, we will establish its negligence and work to recover your losses.
