Claims involving the quality of medical care provided by physicians, surgeons, hospitals or other health care providers require a unique and specialized approach. These case often involve complex medical and legal issues which require experienced counsel. These cases often require long periods of investigation and evaluation.
Medical Malpractice cases are very expensive and well defended cases. However medical malpractice cases involve serious and catastrophic injury.
Medical Malpractice Cases may involve:
Failure to Diagnose Breast Cancer
Leaving Foreign Objects inside a patient
Cerebral Palsy and Birth Injuries
Erb's palsy, Brachial Plexus Palsy, or Shoulder Dystocia occurs when there is excessive lateral traction is applied to the unborn child's neck during delivery. This can cause the childs nerves to be torn, resulting in a limp arm. Tearing of these nerves can cause permanent paralysis of the arm.
Mistaken removal of healthly organs
Death or paralysis due to improper treatment
More is expected of a malpractice victim than other litigants, and proper selection of counsel is that much more critical.
Gathering evidence of malprcatice is more difficult than it seems. Many doctors simply won't testify against another. Often times, doctors from out-of-state must be consulted and retained, as this is the only way to obtain a truthful medical analysis and competent opinions. Even local doctors who confirm a medical error for you may refuse to put it in writing or testify in your case. Your case should be evaluated by a competent physician who will render an honest opinion regarding malpractice, so that we can properly prosecute your case.
Counsel should be secured at the earliest suspicion of doctor error. These cases are won or lost on the records. Most do not realize that important medical records can be lost, altered, or destroyed unless protective measures are taken early. A strong case of serious malpractice can become valueless as a result of even modest delay. Securing competent counsel at the outset might be the most meaningful contribution made to the case by the malpractice litigant.
