There are unfortunately doctors that do not live up to the standards set forth by their profession. If your doctor has made a mistake in his or her diagnosis, or made a critical mistake, you have rights. Our medical malpractice lawyers aggressively pursue doctors that have not performed to the standards of their profession. We believe in our client’s rights to be properly treated by a doctor. If you suffered in an injury because of medical malpractice, you are entitled to seek compensation from the medical malpractice insurance carrier.
Cases we handle
Our medical negligence attorneys handle cases that involve:
Surgical error. These usually fall under two basic categories. Either an incorrect part of the body is severed or cut, or a foreign object is left inside the body. These cases can also involve anesthesia malpractice or negligence in post-op care.
Birth injury. Injuries during labor and delivery are often caused by obstetric malpractice. Examples include delay in emergency C-sections and inattention to the fetal heart monitor. A low oxygen level can cause brain damage, resulting in cerebral palsy, and complete oxygen deprivation can lead to death. Another C-section complication is Erb’s palsy, which results a baby gets stuck behind the pubic bone. In an attempt to avoid a C-section, some OB-GYNs will force the baby through the birth canal, causing extensive damage to the nerves on top of the arm. An ectopic pregnancy, when untreated, can also be fatal.
Emergency room errors. Death by hospital malpractice, such as misdiagnosis or triage mistake, if not fatal, can cause severe damage.
Misdiagnosis of Cancer. The real tragedy of this medical error is that cancer, when caught early, is often survivable. However, if it’s not diagnosed until it metastasizes, it is usually too late.
