Some Types Of Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice can involve many different types of negligence, including:
- Birth injuries: Injuries during birth can occur due to a wide range of issues, such as the baby not being properly monitored before birth, waiting too long to perform a C-section, lack of oxygen to the baby during labor and many other causes.
- Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis: When a disease or illness is misdiagnosed or a doctor fails to diagnose the condition, the patient may be deprived of proper care that literally can be the difference between life and death. If such malpractice has deprived you or a loved one or a meaningful opportunity for a better outcome, you may be entitled to significant money damages.
- Medication errors: A mistake involving a prescription medication can occur at any point in the medication chain, from the doctor’s prescribing the medicine to the patient taking the medicine.
- Surgical errors: Any mistake made during surgery, including the physician leaving medical instruments in the body, can cause a patient serious injury or death.
These are only a few of the many possible medical errors.
Overcoming Challenges In Medical Negligence Cases
Medical malpractice claims involve many unique factors. For instance, in order to make a strong case, your attorney must work closely with recognized experts in medicine and other fields. Your lawyer must be able to fully understand complex information and then present this information in a way that resonates with members of a jury.
Our lawyers understand these and other challenges and will take a proactive approach in order to give you the best chance of getting the financial recovery you need after a serious injury.
Some Of Our Results In Medical Malpractice Claims
$4 million settlement for a 47-year-old woman who underwent significant, but uneventful, abdominal surgery; she then suffered stroke with hemiparesis when hospital incorrectly placed triple-lumen catheter in her carotid artery rather than her jugular vein.
$3 million settlement for a 48-year-old man who underwent routine blood tests that showed moderately elevated PSA levels, an early sign of prostate cancer. However, his physician failed to inform him and did nothing for 1 1/2 years until the PSA levels had doubled and the prostate cancer had spread, thereby reducing his opportunity for a favorable outcome and requiring him to undergo radical prostatectomy, radiation and chemotherapy.
$3 million settlement during trial for a 73-year-old patient who was undergoing routine bypass surgery but was given a blood transfusion with the wrong blood type, and suffered renal failure and below-knee leg amputation.
