Determining Instances of Medical Malpractice
Unfortunately, mistakes happen everywhere. But when doctors make mistakes, their errors can pose significant health risks for the victim. To make matters worse, doctors who make mistakes often try to cover them up to avoid medical malpractice suits. Medical malpractice comes in many forms. Some of the most common types are:
- Failure to diagnose
- Surgical errors
- Medication errors
Our team of veteran medical malpractice lawyers helps you to correct these errors and hold doctor accountable for their actions.
Taking Action Against Your Doctor
Our legal team fights on your behalf, investigating the cause of your injury and determining the type of medical malpractice you suffered. We then take action, bringing the case to court, if necessary, to attain compensation such as:
- Coverage for past and future medical bills. We secure compensation for both your previous medical costs and any costs required as a result of the malpractice.
- Compensation for emotional trauma. Being injured by a doctor is a traumatic experience, and we make sure you receive proper compensation for that trauma.
- Compensation for loss of wages. To compensate you for the time you miss from work, we seek damages to cover your lost wages and earning capacity.
