Medical Malpractice

Essentially, medical malpractice is negligence on the part of a doctor (or other health care provider). When a doctor (or other health care provider) departs from accepted medical practice, and injury or death of a patient occurs as a result of that deviation from the standard of care, the doctor (or other health care provider) can be liable for their actions. Under such circumstances, the patient is entitled to recover for past and future: pain and suffering, medical expenses, and loss of earnings. A spouse (or if a minor is injured, the parents) can recover for loss of services. In a death case, the next of kin can recover for their loss. Medical Malpractice includes the following but is not limited to the following claims:

  • Failure to diagnose cancer

  • Delay to treat or failure to diagnose a medical condition

  • Cerebral palsy & brain damage

  • Birth injury

  • Erb’s palsy

  • Gynecologic surgical malpractice

  • Hospital Negligence

  • Emergency room errors

  • Medication Errors

  • Surgical errors & complications

  • Anesthesia malpractice

  • Failure to diagnose hydrocephalus

  • Extravasation Of Chemotherapeutic Agents

  • Abdominal Compartment Syndrome

  • Failure to diagnose compartment syndrome

  • Failure to diagnose injury to the popliteal artery

  • Osteoradionecrosis

If necessary, we retain expert accountants and financial analysts because many medical malpractice cases have their own set of associated losses including lost wages, the cost of care and many other monetary costs. In order to accurately assess what these costs will be for the remainder of a victim’s life, we use financial professionals to derive fair resolutions for injury victims.
