Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional harms a patient through a negligent act, omission, or deviation from the accepted standard of care. When that happens, the negligent providers should pay for harm they caused.

Our AV®-rated law firm can help you recover medical malpractice damages for:

  • Birth injuries — These may be the result of poor procedures during forceps or vacuum extraction deliveries, the misuse of labor-inducing drugs, delayed delivery or failure to anticipate birth complications or respond to fetal distress.
  • Surgical errors — They include anything from leaving medical instruments or other foreign objects in the body to operating on the wrong body part, as well as anesthesiology mistakes.
  • Emergency room errors — As ER use has increased significantly in the past decade, so have emergency room errors such as improper or delayed diagnoses, incorrectly interpreted tests, failure to follow procedures and understaffing.
  • Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose — An incorrect  or nonexistent diagnosis can allow a medical condition to worsen and deprive patients of the opportunity to receive proper — or even lifesaving — treatment in a timely manner.
  • Prescription Drug & Medication Malpractice — A wrongly prescribed drug or medication can dangerously affect a patient’s health, leading to serious complications and injury
  • Nursing Home Malpractice — We pay assisted care facilities to take care of our loved ones, and we expect them to provide for their health and daily necessities. Failure to do so is a breach of trust and contract.
