We go to the hospital to heal, when we are hurt or sick to the point we can no longer care for ourselves. We rely on professionals to provide us assistance and guidance based on their years of specialized education. Most doctors and medical professionals are competent and care deeply for their patients and meet the needs of their patients. Certainly, they do not intend to harm their patients. Unfortunately, despite the best intentions, medical mistakes occur with alarming frequency.
Every year in the United States, almost 100,000 people die as a result of avoidable medical mistakes. By way of comparison, breast cancer takes approximately 40,000 lives. Everyone has seen the pink ribbons drawing attention to the horrible toll breast cancer takes on our society. The same type of attention needs to be paid to the toll avoidable medical errors take. Holding hospitals and physicians accountable for these avoidable mistakes, will force the healthcare industry to make changes to drive down the numbers of unnecessary injuries and deaths.
-Birth injuries resulting from negligence during labor and delivery
-Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose
-Failure to provide appropriate treatment
-Unreasonable delay in treatment of a diagnosed medical condition
While this list does not enumerate every form of medical malpractice, it provides an example of the broad range of medical malpractice cases we have handled for clients over the years. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of negligence on the part of a health care professional, we may be able to help you recover compensation for your harms and losses.
