Doctors Have a Duty to Provide Competent Treatment

Like many other professions, medical professionals must ensure they’re providing care that meets the industry standard. This means when they have a patient, they must work hard to diagnose a problem and treat it accordingly without causing any additional harm. Any failure in this standard of care mean the patient can suffer severe harm and the medical professional may be responsible for any and all damages suffered. A medical malpractice claim is a legal action brought against a doctor, surgeon, or other healthcare provider for injuries or death caused by negligent or incorrect care.

Our medical malpractice lawyers have helped countless individuals in the past, and we’re well aware of the certain actions medical professionals can take that are negligent, including but not limited to the following:

  • Birth injuries and delivery mistakes causing birth trauma

  • Performing surgery on the wrong patient or part of the body

  • Closing a patient with a surgical object still in his or her body

  • Anesthesia errors

  • Misdiagnosis, missed diagnosis, or failure to diagnose

  • Providing inaccurate treatment

  • Delaying treatment

  • Failure to provide information regarding risks and side effects of treatment or medications

  • Prescription errors

We understand that being the victim of medical malpractice is a traumatic experience, especially when the person or facility you entrusted with your health did you harm. We will do everything we can to help you obtain compensation.

Hospitals May Be Vicariously Liable for Employee Mistakes

Whenever someone must go to a hospital, he or she relies on medical professionals to provide adequate care. However, it’s the hospital’s responsibility to hire these professionals. If a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional causes a patient to suffer harm, the hospital may hold a share of the liability for hiring mistakes. In some cases, hospitals can be responsible for contaminated supplies as it is the hospital that supplies medical professionals with these items. Proving a hospital is responsible means working with an attorney who knows how to utilize evidence to pursue compensation you need.
