Doctors, nurses and the rest of the hospital staff have an obligation to protect their clients from any mistakes or errors that could endanger them. When the hospitals or medical professionals engage in negligent conduct and cause injury to their patients, it can cause patients to suffer lifelong consequences.
Here at Bankruptcy Advocates, we have the experience you need if you have suffered serious medical malpractice and birth injuries. We know what it takes to hold medical professionals accountable for mistakes that cause lifelong consequences.
There are many ways in which a patient at a hospital can suffer medical malpractice. In some instances, a patient may not even be fully aware that the injuries they suffered stem from malpractice at all. Common forms of malpractice include:
- Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis
- Medication errors
- Anesthesia errors
- Surgical errors
Mistakes can also occur during childbirth, leading to lifelong injuries for the child, like:
- Erb's palsy
- Brain damage
- Spinal cord injuries
- Cerebral palsy
- Infant hematoma
When medical professionals cause these types of injuries, they need to be held accountable for their negligence. For many who have suffered medical malpractice, a compelling reason to sue is to highlight the negligence and help to prevent others from suffering the same fate, allowing them to receive justice and compensation. When an injury results in significant medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and costs of adapting to any disability, the injury's compensation should reflect those damages. Our attorneys work to obtain the compensation you need to recover from these types of serious, life-changing injuries.
After a hospital is responsible for an injury that should not have happened, let a compassionate lawyer help you hold them accountable. We help our clients stand up against hospitals and their large insurance companies; let us take them on for you.
