Our attorneys provide representation in all types of medical malpractice claims, including:
STROKES AND HEART ATTACK
Strokes and heart attacks are leading causes of death in the United States. Time is of the essence when it comes to treating these conditions. The failure of medical professionals to act or properly diagnose a stroke or heart attack can have tragic results. Errors made during surgery can also lead to a stroke or heart attack, and may be grounds for medical malpractice.
ERRORS INVOLVING ANESTHESIA
Errors that occur during the administration of anesthesia can result in organ failure, brain damage, paralysis, and other catastrophic and fatal injuries. Errors may result from the negligence of doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists or other medical professionals who administer anesthesia or are responsible for monitoring a patient’s well-being.
LABOR AND DELIVERY COMPLICATIONS
Medical errors during the labor and delivery process can result in serious, sometimes fatal, injuries to both mother and child. A child may suffer brain injuries if deprived of oxygen, or suffer from shoulder dystocia if not delivered properly. The mother can suffer serious harm if warning signs of trouble are ignored or if improperly treated.
DOCTORS AND HOSPITALS DENYING FAULT
It used to be standard practice for a doctor or a hospital to flatly deny any fault for injuries arising from malpractice. This school of thought is changing somewhat. However, a formal apology does not make up for financial losses suffered due to malpractice. If you believe you have a malpractice claim and your provider is refusing to acknowledge any sort of culpability, we can let you know what your options are for moving forward.
CLAIMS INVOLVING SEPSIS
Sepsis involves a serious bodily response to bacterial infections. The body’s immune system develops an inflammatory response to the infection, leading to dangerously low blood pressure and organ damage/failure. If the infection is contracted in a hospital, or if medical professionals fail to diagnose and/or treat sepsis promptly, it may rise to the level of malpractice.
