Difficult Cases, Serious Impacts

Gavel and stethoscope in a legal library.Going to the doctor or seeking medical care from anyone is putting your trust in that person to do what they are trained to do. While many doctors and nurses, as well as other medical professionals, do this without any problem, others don’t. When you are being treated by one who is negligent, you are facing the potential of serious life impacts.

There are many types of medical malpractice that can occur. The tie that binds these together is that the patient isn’t getting proper care, which is exacerbating an existing medical condition or causing a new one to occur. Here are some forms of medical malpractice to watch for:

  • Surgical errors
  • Medication errors
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failed diagnosis
  • Failure to meet or exceed the standard of care
  • Hospital negligence
  • Pharmacy errors
  • Birth injuries

There’s no reason victims of medical malpractice should be left trying to find ways to cover medical bills that come from treating the problems caused by negligence. These roll in at a time when you might have a decrease in income due to missing work. We will help you seek compensation for these damages.

Finding Ways To Prove Your Claim

One of the most difficult things about trying to prove a medical malpractice claim is finding a medical professional who is credible and willing to stand up against the injustices you are facing. At Foley, Lamy & Jefferson, we work to find the expert witnesses who will testify about the errors made in your case. This is a critical component in these cases, especially those that hinge on the standard of care not being met.
