About Medical Malpractice

photo of a surgery taking placeDoctors, nurses, and other health practitioners provide life-saving care for many patients. Sometimes, however, diagnostic and treatment mistakes lead to devastating outcomes. Preventable catastrophic injuries and deaths occur in hospitals, clinics, and emergency rooms every day, leaving patients and families to deal with the tragic aftermath.

Medical malpractice can take many forms, including surgical errors, pharmaceutical errors, misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, and others. These errors can lead to life-altering and deadly results. A delayed cancer diagnosis may close a treatment window, subjecting the patient to more dangerous, less effective options. Other examples include severe, preventable birth injuries that can have life-long effects on children and their families. In these situations, it is vital that you seek the compensation you deserve and hold responsible parties accountable.
