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.
Our lawyers have the skill and experience in injury law to make a difference in the lives of injured workers. We handle all types of medical malpractice claims, including those involving:
Emergency Room Errors
In emergency situations, quick action is necessary to prevent further harm and save lives. Decisions must be made quickly and accurately. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Emergency room errors occur every day in America, and they can often be deadly.
Failure to Diagnose/Misdiagnose
Some illnesses are unavoidable. But when people seek medical attention for them, they expect to receive it from trained professionals who recognize the classic signs of disease. Sadly, this does not always happen. Each year in America, physicians’ failure to diagnose disease results in tragic delays in treatment.
Medication errors occur more frequently than many people would imagine. In fact, they account for nearly a quarter of medical malpractice cases brought in America today. Of these cases, failure to administer the proper dosage is the most common medication error. Many people receive too much or too little of medications that should be life saving.
Surgeons do not like to admit making mistakes. Still, surgical mistakes can — and do — happen, and the results can be deadly. At the Tylka Law Firm, we represent people who have been injured due to surgical error. We also represent the surviving families of people who passed away during the course of otherwise routine surgery.
The same powerful drugs that save lives and treat serious conditions can also cause catastrophic injuries or death. Because of the enormous profits, pharmaceutical companies commonly downplay evidence of permanent or deadly side effects and ruthlessly calculate the profits at the expense of the injured or deceased.
Third-Party Medical Liability Claims
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.
