Medical Negligence - Medical Malpractice

Medical negligence can occur when a physician fails to obtain the informed consent of a patient before performing a procedure, misdiagnoses a medical condition, fails to perform a procedure properly, or deviates from accepted standards of care in a general or particularized practice of medicine.

We hold doctors and other health professionals accountable for medical malpractice that leads to injury or wrongful death. Medical malpractice may involve:

  • Cancer misdiagnosis: failure to timely diagnose cancer resulting in an untreatable condition that may have been treatable if detected and diagnosed sooner
  • Birth injuries: failure to recognize fetal distress and perform a c-section, failure to recognize difficult fetal presentations, and negligent usage of delivery equipment, such as forceps that results in permanent injury to the infant or mother
  • Surgical errors: anesthesia overdose accidents, contaminated blood transfusions, plastic surgery mistakes, Lasik complications, and other surgical mistakes
  • Medication errors: nursing negligence, doctor negligence, and pharmacy negligence that leads to improper dosage, improper medication, or other medication errors
  • Equipment malfunctions and mis-readings: Radiology report mistakes, testing equipment malfunctions, and other negligence
  • Nursing home abuse: neglect or abuse that leads to accidental burns, bed sores, medication errors, broken bones, and sexual misconduct
