Types of Medical Malpractice Cases We Handle
Birth injuries we have handled include brain damage, cerebral palsy, fractured bones, Erb’s palsy, skin problems and breathing problems.
When hospitals make mistakes, serious injuries can result. Mistakes include prescription errors, medication errors, failure to diagnose and surgical mistakes.
Medical malpractice involving medication errors can include negligent dosing (overdose/under-dose), wrong drug, dangerous drug interactions, allergic reactions and side effects.
When hospitals make mistakes during surgery, serious injuries can result. Mistakes include failure to operate, unnecessary surgery, failure to treat complications, and more.
There are many ways medical malpractice can lead to paralysis injuries, including a disease or injury that is ignored or misdiagnosed until it leads to brain or spinal cord damage; surgery on the brain or spine that is done negligently; or post-operative complications that are not recognized and treated promptly.
A stroke can be devastating and includes complications such as paralysis, impaired speech, loss of the use of extremities, cognitive impairment, depression and increased risk for successive strokes.
Spinal Cord Injuries
The negligence of a doctor, nurse or hospital can cause spinal cord injuries. Such negligence can include incorrectly positioning a patient during surgery, failure to monitor spinal cord function during spinal surgery or aortic aneurysm surgery, improper chiropractic spine manipulation, failure to immobilize spine following trauma and failure to recognize spine fracture or dislocation after trauma.
We have handled many brain injury cases due to medical negligence, including surgical errors, anesthesia mistakes, missed brain hemorrhage or inadequate stroke management.
Anesthesia mistakes can include failure to seek informed consent for anesthesia, failure to make sure the patient is breathing (or otherwise getting enough oxygen) during anesthesia, wrong concentration of a drug and using the wrong amount of a drug is negligent.
When a physician misdiagnoses an illness, the results can be devastating, especially when a serious illness was missed such as cancer, brain tumors, heart conditions and diabetes.
Nursing Home Abuse
Nursing home abuse can include neglect, failure to supervise residents or staff, bedsores, broken bones, malnutrition, dehydration, sexual abuse and physical assault by staff.
