Medical Malpractice Attorney

Representing Clients in Medical Malpractice Claims and Lawsuits

In a Mayo Clinic study with the American College of Surgeons, 8.9% of participating U.S. surgeons reported the belief that they’ve made a major medical error within the last 3 months — and 1.5% believe their error resulted in a patient’s death (New England Journal of Medicine blogpost - January 2017). What should be done about this?

440,000 patients DIE every year from preventable medical errors

Johns Hopkins study suggests MEDICAL ERRORS are 3rd leading cause of death in U.S.

“It boils down to people dying from the care that they receive rather than the disease for which they are seeking care”

Medical malpractice refers to an act or omission in the treatment of a patient by a health care provider, such as a hospital, clinic, nursing home, doctor, nurse, pharmacist, therapist, dentist, psychiatrist, and other specialist and practitioner in the health care field.

These types of cases may involve a wide array of medical error or deviations from what is considered to be standard care. They can include failures to diagnose, misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, birth injuries, surgical errors, anesthesia errors, prescription errors, failure to treat hospital infections, and more. Injuries sustained from medical malpractice can lead to additional invasive surgeries or medical care, temporary or long-term disability, and even death.
