Medical Malpractice is the Third Leading Cause of Death in the United States.

We put our health, wellness, and lives in the hands of experienced medical professionals every single day. We trust them to provide the highest standard of care for our families and ourselves. All too often, however, this trust is violated. If you or your loved ones have suffered at the hands of a medical professional, we want to help.

You deserve the dedication and service of an experienced, skilled legal team. We are committed to fighting for your rights, helping you get justice, and ensuring that you receive the maximum compensation to which you are entitled.

Know the Facts.

When the highly trained, well-educated medical professionals that we trust fail to provide the level of care owed to every patient, it is only right to hold them accountable. The unfortunate reality is that patients frequently find themselves facing devastating injuries and immense trauma due to errors, negligence, and misconduct on the part of medical professionals. Some of the most common situations that lead to medical malpractice suits include:

  • Misdiagnosis - When you go to a doctor with symptoms, you rightfully expect and deserve an accurate diagnosis and prompt treatment. When medical professionals fail to diagnose you, your ability to get treatment is delayed which can lead to worsening symptoms and more rapid progression of illness.
  • Medication errors – Medical professionals can fail to provide the right prescription to a patient, fail to provide correct dosage, or even fail to provide necessary medication altogether. Whether this is due to forgetfulness or overwork, these events are unacceptable. They put patients in great jeopardy and can lead to organ damage and death.
  • Anesthesia errors – The use of anesthesia should be safe for most patients under careful supervision and diligent care. Injuries, illnesses, and death caused by anesthesia errors are usually a result of negligence. These can relate to dosage errors, lack of monitoring, and failure to recognize complications.
  • Birth injuries – The birth of a baby should be a joyous occasion and it is tragic when mothers and babies are put at risk due to mishandling of pregnancy care, labor & delivery care, or neonatal care. Babies that suffer birth injuries are often left with serious physical and/or mental disabilities and the short-term & long-term effects on families can be devastating.
  • Surgical accidents/errors – Having to go under the knife is scary enough. Patients should not have to worry about negligence, errors, or accidents happening before, during, or after surgery. These can have dire, life-changing consequences for patients.

Get What You Deserve.

If you have lost a loved one due to medical malpractice, you are experiencing devastation and immense suffering. If you have been the victim of medical malpractice, you may be traumatized, enduring emotional & physical pain, and facing a long road ahead of you.

Every medical malpractice case is different, but at their core, they each have one thing in common: patients do not deserve to suffer for mistakes made by a medical professional. It is important to have a skilled legal team by your side. We can help recover what you rightfully deserve so that you can start to move forward.

Some damages in medical malpractice cases are relatively easy to quantify. These include:

  • Loss of wages – These encompass not only the wages you have already lost, but also lost income stemming from future earning capacity and projected future losses.
  • Medical expenses – You should not have to pay for hospital stays, surgeries, doctor’s visits, necessary medical equipment, at-home care, medication, or rehabilitation that is required due to medical malpractice. We will fight to recover damages to cover all these expenses.

Other damages are less quantifiable, but still equally deserved. These include:

  • Decreased quality of life – We may be able to recover damages if your quality of life has been diminished due to the medical malpractice incident in question. This can include cases that involve life-changing, catastrophic injuries, such as brain damage, paralysis, amputation, or chronic pain.
  • Loss of companionship – These damages can usually be recovered on behalf of a spouse or sometimes in cases where a relationship has changed significantly or ended because of the medical malpractice incident in question.
  • Pain & suffering
  • Physical – Your physical suffering matters and you deserve to be compensated for all the pain you have endured and may continue to endure in the future.
  • Emotional & mental – These damages can be recovered in cases where PTSD, severe stress or anxiety, trauma, emotional distress, or mental anguish are evident.

Common Medical Malpractice Events

Any error, negligence, accident, or act of misconduct on the part of a medical professional can have catastrophic ramifications for patients. Some of these include:

Paralysis/spinal cord injuries – These are often the result of surgical error, failure to properly administer spinal anesthesia or misdiagnosis. Many of these types of injuries require extensive rehabilitation and alter the life of the patient permanently.

Infections - These can occur due to unsterilized tools including catheters, respiratory machines, and even unclean hands. Surgical mistakes are also commonly to blame for infections.

Punctured organs – Again, these are largely due to surgical error.

Brain damage- This can happen due to mishandling of anesthesia or complications arising from the use of anesthesia. It can also occur due to medication errors, surgical errors or misdiagnosis of any brain-related illness including aneurysms or bleeds.

PTSD – Patients who have been the victims of medical error, negligence, or misconduct are at increased risk for experiencing symptoms of PTSD, some of which can be severe. Anxiety, stress, insomnia, and nightmares are all common following these events.

Death – Unfortunately, surgical errors, medication errors, anesthesia-related complications, negligence, and misdiagnosis can all lead to death.

Medical Malpractice Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Who can I sue in a medical malpractice case?
Many people mistakenly believe that doctors are the only defendants named in medical malpractice cases. However, this is not always true. Nurses, hospitals, pharmacists, urgent care centers and pharmaceutical companies can all be held liable for instances of medical malpractice.
Is there a deadline to file a claim?
Yes, there is a statute of limitations on medical malpractice cases. It varies state-to-state, but usually is somewhere between two and six years from the instance of medical negligence, misconduct, or error. Exceptions to this rule do exist, however and they generally relate to something known as the discovery rule. This means that instead of having the statute of limitations begin at the time that the medical malpractice instance occurred, the clock starts at the time of discovery of any harmful effects including illnesses, injuries, and suffering. For example, if a physician misdiagnoses you and eight years later you discover that you had cancer that the doctor should have caught, the statute of limitations would start at the time you discovered the cancer.
What do I need to prove in a medical malpractice case?
The question of whether you will triumph in a medical malpractice case comes down to a few things. First, you need to establish that the medical professional in question owed you a certain standard of care or duty and that this standard of care was not met, and the duty owed to you was breached. Next, you will need to prove causation. This means that you must be able to show that the alleged negligence, misconduct, or error has a direct link to the injuries, illnesses, suffering, and/or harm that you have experienced since. Finally, you must establish that damages exist for which you deserve compensation. These can be both economic and non-economic damages and encompass lost wages, medical bills, as well as pain & suffering.
Will I have to go to court?
In some cases, yes. Each case is unique, and many do settle outside of court. However, we will not rest until we obtain the maximum fair compensation to which you are entitled. Therefore, we are prepared and qualified to fight for your rights both inside and outside of court.
What if I signed a consent form at the hospital? Can I still file a lawsuit?
Yes, you may still be able to file a lawsuit even if you signed a consent form prior to a procedure or surgery. Signing a consent form does not release medical personnel from all liability. The form you sign at the hospital establishes “informed consent.” If the doctor performed any procedures or provided treatment not outlined in the form, if the risks & side effects were not made perfectly clear to the patient, or if the patient was not in a condition to be able to provide consent at the time of signing, a medical malpractice suit may be pursued. We strongly encourage you to consult with our legal team so that we can examine the details of your specific case. We will help determine if the medical professionals involved in your case may be held accountable.
