Medical Malpractice 101: Basic Things To Know

Human bodies are imperfect and unpredictable. Not every undesirable outcome to surgery or medical treatment confirms that malpractice has occurred. Malpractice fundamentally means that a health care professional did not follow accepted standards of care. When negligence and the resulting harm can be proven, a medical malpractice claim may be appropriate.

We Will Get To The Bottom Of It

To determine whether medical malpractice has occurred, our litigation team works closely with the most appropriate medical experts for each type of case, including:

  • Failure to diagnosis
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Emergency room (ER) errors
  • Surgical errors, including operating on the wrong site and leaving foreign objects in patients’ bodies
  • Medication errors
  • Birth injuries

In medical malpractice cases, as in all injury cases that we take on, we emphasize clear communication and ample interactions between our attorneys and our clients. We are empathetic as well as thorough in gathering evidence. You can entrust your case to us with confidence that we will find answers and diligently pursue the financial relief that you need.

If we represent you, we will do so on a contingency basis. You will not owe attorney fees until we recover compensation for you. In addition to legal fees, however, you may also be responsible for some or all of the expenses associated with your case. This is a compelling reason to select medical malpractice cases with appropriate caution.
