If a course of medical treatment doesn’t work or the outcome isn’t what you hoped for, that doesn’t mean your doctor or another medical professional committed medical malpractice. In order to make a successful medical malpractice case, our law firm must establish the following elements:
You may be entitled to compensation for a medical mistake or a loved one’s wrongful death. A recent study at the University of Johns Hopkins found that medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States, with more than 250,000 deaths annually.
Medical negligence can occur in a hospital, doctor’s office, nursing home, and other medical facilities. Common types of medical negligence include medication errors, surgical errors, misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis, anesthesia errors, infections, and charting errors.
If you believe that you or a loved one has been the victim of medical negligence, it is essential to choose the right lawyer to protect your legal rights while fighting for the justice and compensation you deserve.
