Medical Malpractice Attorneys

 

Doctors, nurses, hospital technicians, and other health care providers usually provide caring, professional service with a high standard of excellence for their patients.  However, there are occasions when things go wrong.  If you, your child, or other loved one has been injured, or if a loved one has died as a result of a medical carelessness or negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation.  Doctors, hospitals and health care providers are usually insured and must pay compensation if a medical malpractice claim is proven against them.

A doctor's or nurse’s negligence is probably the most common factor in most medical malpractice cases. When a doctor or hospital deviates from the standard of acceptable medical care and acts negligently, the resulting injuries could be the basis for a medical malpractice claim if it is shown that the actions or failure to act on the part of the medical provider was the cause of harm.

Examples of medical malpractice are a failure to diagnose an illness, leaving a medical utensil implanted after surgery, misdiagnosis, and blood transfusion contamination injuries.

Studies reveal that nearly 100,000 people die every year as a result of medical negligence. Often, these serious injuries and deaths could have been prevented.  We handle serious injuries and deaths caused by substandard medical care occurring in nursing homes, hospitals, and private clinics.
