Medical Malpractice

Simply put, medical malpractice is when doctors, hospitals, pharmacists, or other healthcare professionals injure a patient by providing care that is below the acceptable standard.

As patients, we put our trust and our lives in the hands of medical professionals, under the assumption that they will act carefully and responsibly. Unfortunately, when medical professionals perform their jobs negligently, patients can be seriously injured or killed.

Not every case with a poor outcome is necessarily malpractice, however. Medicine is not an exact science, and even with the best quality of care, sometimes, treatments are unsuccessful.

Medical malpractice arises when a healthcare professional fails to deliver standard quality service, resulting in damages to the patient.

Common malpractice claims we represent include:

  • Birth trauma
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Emergency Room Errors
  • Failure to diagnose cancer
  • Failure to diagnose heart attack
  • Failure to Diagnose Stroke
  • Failed surgical procedures
  • Medication Errors
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Gastric Bypass
  • Wrong Site Surgery
