Determined advocates for victims of range of medical errors
Doctors, nurses, hospitals, nursing homes, dentists or other healthcare providers are required to adhere to professionally accepted standards of care. Malpractice occurs when the standard of care is breached and the breach causes injury. This can occur when medical professionals:
- Fail to properly diagnose a medical condition — One of the most common ways people suffer from medical negligence is through misdiagnosis. Whether it was due to a failure to order the proper tests or to some other act of misjudgment, improper or delayed diagnosis can cause serious injuries to patients.
- Prescribe the wrong drugs or fail to consider drug interactions — Errors in prescriptions can worsen existing medical conditions if the doctor does not order appropriate tests to monitor the drugs’ effects on the patient.
- Make surgical errors — Surgical mistakes can be obvious, such as performing an incorrect or improper surgery, or hidden, such as leaving instruments or other foreign objects inside a patient. If you’ve undergone surgery and have concerns that it resulted in complications, you should consult a legal professional promptly and get an independent medical examination.
- Fail to prevent infant injury at birth — One type of malpractice that can have lifelong consequences is medical error made during pregnancy or delivery. We have experience helping parents recover for severe birth injuries such as brain damage, cerebral palsy or paralysis caused by brachial plexus damage.
At Capitol Legal, we know how to evaluate potential claims for damages in all of these situations and to create winning strategies for recovery of damages for the resultant out-of-pocket costs as well as for pain and suffering.
