Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Most people trust their doctors and healthcare providers to render quality care to them. Most doctors and health care providers do their best to render quality care. Unfortunately, doctors and health care providers sometimes make errors which can have lasting and devastating effects on a patient.

Unquestionably, medical professionals are trusted with your most important asset: your health. We expect doctors, nurses and all health care workers to do their best, but unfortunately there are times when patients are injured because they received treatment that falls below the accepted standard of care.

Medical malpractice is an unfortunate but all-to-common event in today’s health care system. Medical malpractice occurs when a health care provider- a doctor, hospital, dentist, nurse, therapist- or any type of medical practitioner- deviates from the accepted standard of care in treating you. The answer to the question as to whether a doctor or hospital has deviated from the proper standard of care and committed medical malpractice is complex.

Thousands of cases of medical malpractice occur every year. It has been estimated that close to 125,000 deaths are caused by preventable medical errors each year. Most malpractice appears to be committed by a small percentage of doctors.

Medical Malpractice occurs as a result of a doctor’s failure to properly diagnose a medical condition or as a result of misdiagnosis. Errors that occur during surgery and other negligent treatment may also be malpractice. Failing to properly treat a patient can also amount to medical malpractice.

Misdiagnosis can take on many different forms. Failing to ask a patient the proper questions or to recognize the need to refer the patient to a specialist can lead to a misdiagnosis or a failure to diagnose. When a diagnosis is missed, a disease or condition can get worse. Illness may spread, diminishing the chance for a cure and causing significant harm.

Failing to properly monitor a patient can also be a cause of malpractice. This is often seen in birth injury cases where there is a failure to recognize the need for a cesarean section by failing to observe and interpret the fetal monitoring strips during labor. In those cases the failure to recognize a danger to the unborn child can result in serious, lifelong injury such as cerebral palsy.

Errors during surgery can occur in many different ways. If a surgeon fails to recognize and properly repair injury to an organ the organ can sustain permanent damage. A surgeon leaving behind a surgical tool or item inside of the patient, or incorrectly performing surgery and causing injury is medical malpractice.  In addition, medication errors can be the basis for medical malpractice.

Too often, medical negligence results in permanent injury or even wrongful death. All cases are subject to strict time limitations so if you believe you or a family member has been injured by medical negligence, an experienced medical malpractice attorney should be sought immediately.
