Our Legal Services - Representing our clients with compassion and dedication
If a doctor or other medical professional has caused a patient harm by failing to provide care that promotes healing, he or she may be guilty of medical malpractice or negligence. These claims take several forms, most of which are one of the following:
- Failure to Diagnose a Condition: In these cases, a patient must prove that an accurate diagnosis would've resulted in better medical treatment and overall outcome.
- Improper Treatment: We know that medical decisions are all too often regarded as fluid or flexible, instead of being based off of hard science. There is no room for this when a patient's quality of life is threatened. If improper treatment is selected over what would've been a proper and thus helpful course of action, malpractice may have occurred.
- Failure to Warn of Risks: It's no secret, and shouldn't be regarded as one in a doctor-patient relationship. Medicine and medical treatment come with risks that should be relayed to a patient as clearly as large-print lists on a medication bottle. Failure to do so can be grounds for a malpractice case. Horrifying allergic reactions, injuries, and other maladies can arise as a result of little to no information given.
