cerebral palsy and
Erb's palsy, and are committed to helping families get the compensation they need to provide their children with the brightest future possible. Cases involving a

Every future treatment developed should be accessible, and the best quality of life should be available to the injured.
There are countless different types of situations which could constitute some type of malpractice. For example, if a doctor fails to diagnose the patient's condition, they will not only receive the wrong treatment, but their illness could become worsened. In many situations, a treatment that was once treatable may quickly become fatal because they were not helped quickly enough. In
misdiagnosis cases, the doctor does realize that something is wrong, but they mistakenly diagnose it as something different. Medical professionals are responsible for running the necessary tests so that they every possibility is examined. Any
doctor error or
nursing error could result in tragic consequences for the patient so they should take the proper care and consideration to ensure that they have not made any mistakes.
We understand that there has be room for human errors, but when those errors arise out of medical negligence, something must be done to hold these medical personnel responsible for what they have done. This extends past diagnosis to the drugs they prescribe for treatment.
Medication errors and
pharmacy errors may not seem like the most serious type of medical malpractice case, yet they can lead to serious injuries and even death. Whether it was the wrong dosage or the completely wrong prescription, the patient's condition may not get better while on that drug. In some cases, they are allergic to the medication or that specific drug actually worsens their condition.

Even the smallest mistake that takes place during surgery is serious. Whether it was a plastic surgery error, a
gastric bypass error, an operation on the wrong patient or part of the body or an object left inside the body, you may have a case of medical malpractice. During surgery, patients are often put to sleep. An
anesthesia error could result in long-term damage or even death. There are many types of medical malpractice claims we get involved in, including cases of injury, illness or death due to a medical error or
emergency room error. Negligence is unacceptable when it comes to your health and it is extremely difficult when a health care professional is the cause of your pain and suffering.
The types of injuries that can be sustained from these mistakes can range from discomfort and annoyance to long-term problems and disabilities and even wrongful death. Surgical injuries,
blood transfusion injuries, and
infections in hospitals led to serious complications. Some malpractice claims we litigation include those involving
medical equipment failure, cancer misdiagnosis, heart attack misdiagnosis, cases of an incorrect operation, and assisting families in seeking justice in civil court for wrongful deaths.
Helping Surviving Family Members with Wrongful Death
Perhaps the most devastating aspect of malpractice is the loss of a loved one. A death in the family is extremely difficult; however, when that death was preventable, the situation is even more heartbreaking. We rely on medical professionals to do everything in their power to help us. However, what happens when their actions or their failure to act leads to this kind of tragedy? No amount of compensation will be able to make up for the death of a loved one. However, by filing a lawsuit, you may be able to ensure that the same tragedy does not affect another victim and another family. Receiving justice for your loved one may also be able to provide a sense of closure for those that were left behind.
