Medical Negligence Attorney Representing Victims of Failure to Properly Diagnose, Treat, Monitor Patients
Doctors, hospitals, nurses, medical labs and pharmacists do not like to admit making mistakes, yet medical mistakes do happen. When medical professionals fail to meet an accepted standard of care, and that failure causes serious injury or wrongful death, that is medical malpractice.

Medical Mistakes Are Costly to Patients and Their Families
Patients pay for medical mistakes with pain, suffering, disability and, in the worst cases, death. Those responsible should be held financially accountable for what their mistakes have cost their patients. A medical malpractice attorney can bring together a team to review medical treatment and determine what went wrong.
A frequent mistake is a failure to diagnose or a misdiagnosis. A failure to diagnose a condition — cancer, a heart attack, a stroke, a lung disease — can result in delayed or no treatment. That, in turn, can shorten a life.
Surgical errors can mean that the patient must endure the surgery and recuperation again in order to fix the mistake. If a surgeon removes the wrong limb or breast or kidney, the patient will have to have a second surgery and experience the pain and difficulty of recuperation a second time.
The cause of a birth injury may begin with neglect in prenatal care, a failure of the doctor to diagnose a potential problem early in the pregnancy. During labor and delivery, a failure to monitor the mother and fetus and to react appropriately can cause damage to the health of both. A failure to perform a cesarean section can cause permanent birth injury to muscles, nerves or the brain.
In emergency rooms, events happen quickly, but the doctors and nurses should be trained to react appropriately to a wide range of medical conditions and get the appropriate care to the patient.
