Medical Malpractice

About Medical Malpractice

Hundreds of thousands of patients are maimed, emotionally scarred, or die every year due to medical errors. Medical malpractice is a highly technical area of the law, and lawsuits are usually defended vigorously.

Professional negligence can occur whenever a health care provider violates the accepted standard of care. Mistakes can be made in the doctor’s office or the dentist’s office, in the emergency room and the operating room. Misdiagnoses, misread scans and tests, and prescription medication errors are far too common. A nurse’s negligence and preventable infection can harm patients during their hospital or nursing home stays. Improper care and treatment during pregnancy, labor, and delivery can cause catastrophic or fatal birth injuries.

In the aftermath of medical negligence, patients and families must not only deal with physical and emotional injury, but the costs of ongoing medical care, rehabilitation, lost income, and other economic hardship.

Often, finding the right medical expert to support the case can make the difference between winning a large settlement and losing in trial. Highly qualified experts usually only work with attorneys they respect and trust.
