Do You Have a Medical Malpractice Claim?

Medical malpractice claims must prove that a health care provider’s negligence, or failure to provide an accepted level of care, caused your injury. Acts of medical negligence that may lead to a medical malpractice claim include:

  • Anesthesia Errors
    Failing to check for drug conflicts or miscalculating the amount of anesthesia you need for a surgical procedure can lead to severe complications, including paralysis, stroke, heart attack, and even death.
  • Cancer Misdiagnosis
    An early cancer diagnosis can be vital to your successful treatment so you can return to a healthy life. When medical professionals fail to order or read diagnostic tests, identify symptoms, or follow up with you, it can negatively impact your quality of life or even cause death.
  • Heart Attack Misdiagnosis
    Signs of a heart attack can be subtle. This means that doctors and other healthcare providers must order the right medical tests and pay close attention to your symptoms. A misdiagnosis of a heart attack can lead to severe pain and suffering, future health complications, and even death.
  • Surgical Errors
    All surgeries have risks. When surgeons fail to perform surgeries with the same degree of reasonable care as similarly trained professionals, it can lead to serious complications, longer recovery times, or possibly death.
  • Wrong Site Surgeries
    When you agree to an operation, you trust the surgeons and other medical professionals involved to perform to the best of their abilities. Sometimes mistakes are made, including performing surgery on the wrong body part, carrying out the wrong procedure, or operating on the wrong patient.
