Standing Up Against Negligent Medical Professionals
Our health is very important. When we are suffering from an injury or illness, we want someone to be able to return us to health as soon as possible. When we visit a doctor, we believe the advice we are given. While in most cases we receive proper treatment, in some circumstances, the treatment we receive actually makes things worse. If you have suffered an injury or illness due to the actions of a doctor, nurse or other medical professional, you may have claims for compensation.

The Types Of Medical Malpractice Claims We See Most Often
To establish a claim for medical malpractice, it is necessary to thoroughly investigate the actions of the medical professional involved. You must be able to show that the doctor, physician or nurse administered treatment that deviated from acceptable standards of care. This almost always means that you will need experts who will review your case and determine if malpractice occurred. We know how to find these experts for you.
Our attorneys have worked with many different experts in previous cases, and know the questions to ask the experts so we can determine whether your condition was caused by negligent treatment. Some of the various medical malpractice claims that we handle include:
- Delayed diagnosis
- Surgery gone wrong
- Missed diagnosis of cancer or other serious illnesses
- Prescribing the wrong medications or the wrong dosage of medication
- Cases where sponges or other medical instruments have been left in the body after a surgery
- Any and all other cases involving negligent acts by doctors, nurses, physicians and others involved in your care
- Hospital negligence
We know that medical malpractice cases require extensive work from the beginning all the way through the trial. When we take your case, we start the work immediately because we know that if your case ends up going to trial we will be ready. We want to make sure that you have the best opportunity to get the compensation you deserve.
