If you were injured during a medical procedure, surgery, medical evaluation or treatment by a doctor, nurse, or another medical professional, you may have the right to seek compensation under a medical malpractice claim. Victims of medical malpractice face astronomical medical bills, the loss of wages due to the inability to return to work and pain and suffering. You have the legal right to seek compensation regarding your injuries and losses due to a medical professional’s negligence.
Types of Medical Malpractice Cases
While there are many types of medical malpractice cases, some of the most common types include the following:
- Medication errors
- Failure to accurately or appropriately diagnose or identify medical conditions
- Leaving medical instruments and tools inside of a patient following surgery
- Wrong-site surgeries, removal of incorrect body part, and other surgical errors
- Birth injuries occurring immediately prior to, during, or after the birth of a child to either the child or the mother.
- Injuries suffered from dentists, nurses, hospital staff, chiropractors, physical therapists, or other medical professionals.
Building a Strong Medical Malpractice Case
Medical malpractice cases are oftentimes complex and legally challenging to develop. In many cases, an independent investigation is required and medical experts are needed to testify on behalf of the victim. The victim must ultimately prove that the injuries they suffered were a direct result of the negligence of the medical professional. In some cases, victims may be unaware of their injuries until a much later time, especially when medical negligence occurred during surgery and the victim is still in the process of recovering. Our legal team consists not only of experienced attorneys but medical professionals that are uniquely qualified to build a strong medical malpractice case on your behalf.
