Types of Medical Malpractice

We advise clients about medical malpractice in such situations as the following:

  • Prescription errors
  • Negligent hospital care
  • Misdiagnosis of stroke or heart attack
  • Delayed diagnosis of cancer
  • Birth injuries such as cerebral palsy or shoulder dystocia
  • Surgical errors resulting in organ failure or neurological damage

We recommend that you call us without delay if you suspect that medical malpractice played a role in the serious injury or death of someone in your family. It can take time to gather the records and assemble the expert investigation team who will need to find out what went wrong and who's responsible. We offer free consultations to medical malpractice clients, and we advance the expenses involved in reviewing your case with experts.

How A Medical Malpractice Attorney Can Help

Thorough preparation and close collaboration with medical experts are the keys to success in a medical malpractice case. Because you need to show that the injury or death resulted from a departure from a particular standard of care on the part of the defendant, you need to prove your case through other medical professionals who are qualified to review and evaluate the performance of the defendant.

Two points, in particular, need expert support: first, that what the doctor in your case did or didn't do violated a recognized standard of care; and next, that this error of commission or omission played an important role in causing the injury or death. You can expect determined opposition on both points, but our lawyers know how to rise to the challenge.

The Role of a Medical Malpractice Lawyer

By the time we're ready to file your lawsuit, we'll have a good idea of what we can prove and how we'll prove it. Then the focus shifts toward evaluating and countering the opposing expert evidence that the defendants and their insurers will present in opposition to your claims. We can usually anticipate the arguments that will be raised against your claims, and we'll be ready for them. Our attention to detail from the earliest stages of a medical malpractice case on can often make the decisive difference.
