Healthcare providers have a professional obligation to abide by strict standards of care that mandate careful, competent treatment and decision-making. If they fail to adhere to these standards and their actions result in an injury to a patient, they can be held liable for negligence. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury or wrongful death because of the negligent or reckless actions of a healthcare provider, as is often the case in instances of nursing home abuse, we may be able to help you.

While patients must accept that all surgeries involve some level of inherent risk, they can still expect their surgeons to perform competently, with a level of skill and precision befitting their expertise. A patient who chooses to undergo surgery based on a practitioner’s recommendation is placing his or her health, and along with it a serious responsibility, in the hands of the surgical team, as an error during surgery can result in extensive injuries or death. If you have suffered an injury as a result of a surgical error and negligence can be established, you are legally entitled to damages for pain and suffering and any further medical costs necessary to rectify the problem.

A misdiagnosis can consist of either an incorrect diagnosis or a delayed diagnosis of a medical condition. A misdiagnosis can result in medical conditions going untreated, potentially exacerbating them or, in extreme cases such as a misdiagnosis of cancer, resulting in death. In some cases, a misdiagnosis can also lead to a patient receiving unneeded medical care or surgery. The consequences of this type of error can be just as serious as a lack of treatment.
If you have suffered an injury because of a misdiagnosis or a delayed diagnosis, you may be eligible for damages relating to your injury. It is important to realize, though, that some diseases and conditions are inherently more difficult to diagnose than others and that the misdiagnosis must have occurred because of negligence in order to merit a lawsuit. An attorney from our firm can review your case and help determine whether negligence can be proven as the cause of your injuries.
The birthing process has inherent risks, but in some cases, the negligent and reckless actions of medical practitioners can turn these risks into tragic realities.

If your child suffered birthing injuries, you may be eligible for financial compensation that can cover medical bills and emotional distress. Please contact our office today.
