Medical Malpractice

It is not strange for an accident to take place while undergoing medical procedures, even at the hand of the most trained and experienced medical professionals. However, when an injury occurs due to careless medical treatment, a medical malpractice lawsuit might be the only way for a patient to recover damages. If you or a loved one has suffered from the negligent acts of a doctor, you may be entitled to compensation for the following:

 

  • Pain and suffering
  • Future medical bills
  • Loss of wage
  • Future income
  • Punitive damages

For a medical malpractice case to be successfully litigated, there needs to be a significant amount of research, preparation, and evidence gathered. This is needed to prove that the standard of care was not met and caused the injury or wrongful death. Besides doctors, malpractice can also be the result of careless or negligent behavior by caregivers, improper training of staff, and failure to act by anyone involved with the care of patient. The skilled legal team of attorneys and paralegals at Savin & Bursk can handle virtually any type of medical malpractice case, including:

 

  • Misdiagnosis of cancer
  • Misdiagnosis of cardiac conditions
  • Misdiagnosis in pediatrics
  • Prescribing experimental drugs
  • Performing cosmetic surgery
  • Birth injuries or death resulting from delayed C-section procedure, failure to monitor the fetus, or improper delivery technique
  • Emergency room errors
  • Gastroenterology errors
  • Medical device injuries
  • Negligence on the part of a hospital, surgeon, nurse, obstetrician/gynecologist (OB/GYN), or any other doctor or healthcare worker who fails to follow accepted standards of practice
