Physician Error Caused Injury?
Medical Malpractice Attorneys Investigate Potential Doctor Errors
We trust physicians to provide safe and effective medical care, but mistakes happen all the time. If a physician’s negligence led to you or your loved one’s catastrophic injury, call our medical malpractice attorneys. We have more than three decades of legal experience representing injured patients. We understand how to gain successful results for medical malpractice victims. Furthermore, we anticipate how the defense will counter your claims of negligence to prove them wrong.
We only take cases after a medical expert has reviewed the specific situation and is willing to testify under oath that the doctor error caused your injury. We do not charge any money to investigate your potential claim.
What are the Most Common Physician Mistakes?
- Diagnostic error. According to a report in Time magazine, the greatest amount of medical malpractice verdicts and settlements go towards compensating patients for errors in diagnosis. This includes failure to diagnose a serious condition or making a delayed diagnosis after it is too late for adequate treatment.
- Medication error. According to a survey from the American Academy of Family Physicians, most medical mistakes family physicians report involve prescription errors. A lack of communication between departments leads to patients receiving the improper dosage of medication, the wrong type of medication or no medication at all.
- Birth injury. General physicians, OB-GYNs and neonatal specialists are responsible for bringing children safely into the world. Errors made before, during and after the child’s birth can lead to permanent conditions like cerebral palsy and blindness caused by retinopathy of prematurity.
What Can I Do After a Doctor Mistake?
You may be reluctant to take action after a physician whom you know and trust causes a serious injury. You may have visited their office faithfully for years. They may even feel like a part of your family.
Most of these injuries do not happen because doctors are bad people, or because they are unqualified. We understand your hesitation to file a medical malpractice lawsuit in these situations. However, that does not excuse the fact that you or someone you love is suffering due to the fault of someone else. Because of these mistakes, you face new obstacles that change how you live your life. You deserve to be compensated for these new challenges. This includes wages lost from missing work, medical costs and overall loss of enjoyment of life.
