Most medical facilities are reluctant to admit wrongdoing. Many surgeons, doctors and other medical professionals seem more concerned with protecting their reputation than making sure their patients receive the compensation they need to cover all the costs associated with a medical injury.

The financial impact of a serious injury sustained in a hospital or another health care facility can be significant. You or a loved one might need surgery or physical therapy. You might not be able to work for weeks or months during the recovery process. All of these things can add up fast. And if you don't take legal action, you might end up paying for someone else's mistakes.

Our attorneys know how to handle such complicated situations. We know how to negotiate with hospitals, insurance companies and the teams of attorneys they often hire to represent their best interests. While we're skilled at negotiating a favorable settlement, we're not afraid to take all of them to court if necessary and let a jury decide. Put your trust in us.

Hospital infections

Serious injuries and fatalities due to hospital infections have been increasingly common in recent years. Just as frightening, many of the infections people contract while a patient in a hospital cannot be treated with antibiotics. That's because many of the infections people develop in hospitals involve MRSA, carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) and other drug-resistant bacteria. Such infections can be very serious or even deadly, especially among elderly hospital patients. Take your case seriously right from the start. Contact us right now.

Surgical errors

When surgeons make mistakes, their actions can have dire consequences. Many patients often experience serious health problems due to:

  • Wrong medical procedure being performed
  • Medical instruments left inside patient
  • Wrong body part or organ removed
  • Unsanitary conditions in operating room
  • Excessive blood loss
  • Anesthesia errors

Don't try to engage in a legal battle with a surgeon, hospital, their insurance company or the army of attorneys that represent them. We can take them on and hold them accountable. If necessary, we can file a personal injury lawsuit against the surgeon and the hospital on your behalf. We will not rest until justice is served.

Emergency room errors

Hospital emergency rooms can be chaotic places. But that's no excuse for medical errors that can cause serious harm to you or a loved one. That's why we want to meet with you. Our attorneys have years of experience handling all different types of cases involving emergency room errors, including:

  • Delay of treatment (some patients sit for hours in the hospital waiting room)
  • Misdiagnosis of medical problem
  • Medication errors
  • Providing the wrong treatment due to misreading medical charts
  • Sending patients home too soon

Whatever type of error you're dealing with, you shouldn't have to suffer due to someone else's mistakes. We can demand to see hospital's medical records for your incident, consult with medical experts and transform all that information into a strong, legal case.

Falls in medical facilities

Slip and fall accidents in hospitals, doctor's offices, physical therapist's offices and other medical facilities often result in broken bones in the hands, arms, hips and pelvis. These injuries may be more serious than the medical condition that you needed to have treated in the first place! That's why we're eager to meet with you. You and your family have suffered enough. Focus on getting better. We can handle everything else, from filling out all the paperwork associated with such injuries to filing a lawsuit on your behalf if necessary.

Medical device-related injuries

When patients experience harm or adverse outcomes due to the use, malfunction, or failure of a medical device, it may be a case of medical malpractice. These injuries can happen at any point during the device's lifecycle, including during its operation or because of a defect in the device's design, manufacturing, or labeling. When medical practitioners fail to correctly operate a device, when the device is inherently faulty, or when there is a lack of adequate warning about its risks, patients may experience severe consequences. Additionally, if it is established that practitioners continued to use a device despite knowing its risks, or if manufacturers did not disclose known defects or risks, these situations could also be grounds for malpractice claims.

Pressure injuries

Also known as pressure ulcers or bedsores, pressure injuries are localized damage to the skin and underlying tissue, primarily caused by prolonged pressure on the skin. These injuries often occur in patients who are immobile or bedridden, where constant pressure in certain areas reduces blood flow, leading to tissue damage. Pressure injuries can also result from medical devices like casts or splints pressing against the skin. This condition crosses into malpractice if it can be proved that the healthcare provider acted negligently by failing to implement routine skin assessments, not adjusting a patient's position regularly, or ignoring early signs of pressure injuries.

Anesthesia errors

Mistakes that occur during the administration of anesthesia can lead to temporary or permanent injury or, in severe cases, death. Anesthesia errors can range from administering the incorrect dosage, failing to monitor the patient's vital signs, using faulty equipment, or neglecting to review a patient's medical history for potential complications. Victims of anesthesia errors often face significant physical and emotional trauma, leading to extensive and costly medical treatments to address the aftermath of such negligence.
