Types of Cases We Handle

The Institute of Medicine estimates that almost 100,000 people may die from preventable medical errors every year. On top of this, 1,000,000 avoidable injuries are sustained by patients in United States hospitals. Medical malpractice involves professional negligence on the part of a doctor, nurse, or other health care provider. Medical malpractice may include:

  • Careless errors during an operation
  • Failure to perform a caesarian section in time
  • Misdiagnosing a serious illness
  • Filling a prescription incorrectly

Some instances of medical professional negligence results in the injury or death of an infant during labor or delivery. Referred as "birth injuries," these injuries can range from mild to severe. If an infant need assistance during delivery, a doctor may use a vacuum or forceps during birth. These instruments are useful, but can hurt the child if not used correctly. If the doctor fails to perform a necessary caesarian section on time, he/she may be held liable for any injury the baby sustains.

Every year, thousands of accidents and injuries are caused by careless drivers. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the use of electron devices behind the wheel has increased over the past several years, even though recent studies have shown that texting while driver may be as dangerous as or more hazardous than driving under the influence of alcohol. Of course, medical malpractice and car accidents are the only reason to file for a personal injury claim - almost any injury that can be directly related to the carelessness of someone else may merit a lawsuit or claim.

For instance, dog owners are often held completely responsible for the actions of their pets. If you or a loved one is bit by a dog because the owner failed to warn you that it was dangerous (by a posted sign or other means of communication), you may be entitled to money for your medical expenses. Property owners are held to a certain standard of responsibility for accidents sustained on their property. If you slip and fall on a slick surface because a property owner neglected to clean it up in a reasonable amount of time, they may owe you money for any ensuing medical expenses as well.
