Compassionate Representation From An Experienced Attorney

Seeking Justice In Medical Malpractice Cases

Unfortunate outcomes from medical care can occur in the best hands. Many times, unintended outcomes are unavoidable and occur even when medical professionals do everything correctly. Those situations are tragic for all involved, including the medical providers who did their best.

However, there are occasions when preventable injuries occur as a result of negligent care, and; in those cases, the victim deserves compensation.

What Is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice occurs when a health care professional deviates from the standard of care in their field, leading to harm or injury to a patient. It’s important to distinguish true malpractice from unfortunate outcomes that can happen even when care is appropriate. Malpractice is not simply a bad result—it is a failure to meet the established standards of practice, which is something entirely different. When I take these cases, I meticulously examine the details of each case to determine if there are grounds for a malpractice claim, no matter what may have caused it.

Common Forms Of Medical Malpractice

There are several common types of medical malpractice, each with its complexities:

  • Birth Injuries: These can occur due to negligence during childbirth and may result in lifelong consequences for the child and family. From failure to monitor fetal distress to improper delivery techniques, I handle cases with the sensitivity and expertise they require.
  • Surgical Errors: Operations require a high level of precision, and when mistakes happen, like leaving equipment in a patient or conducting the wrong surgery, the effects can be devastating. I am committed to seeking justice for victims of such errors.
  • Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis: When a medical condition is misdiagnosed or a diagnosis is unnecessarily delayed, patients can miss critical treatment opportunities. I work to ensure that those affected by such oversights are compensated for their suffering.
  • Medication Errors: Giving a patient the wrong medicine, or the wrong dose, can have serious, even fatal, consequences. I help victims of medication errors pursue the compensation they need to recover.
  • Anesthesia Errors: Anesthesiologists who make a mistake can cause serious harm. Errors can lead to permanent injury or death, and I stand ready to advocate for those who have been affected by such negligence.

No matter how you were hurt, I am prepared to help you through every step of your medical malpractice claim to secure the compensation you need to move forward after your accident.
