Advocating For Victims Of Medical Malpractice
I have dedicated my career to representing personal injury plaintiffs — especially patients injured by medical negligence. Over the past several years, I have been involved in landmark cases that have set precedent in the field of medical malpractice. The law firm’s success and experience extend to all types of medical negligence cases, including birth injuries, death claims, brain injury and other catastrophic claims such as:
Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis of a medical condition: If you or a loved one has suffered because of a medical professional’s failure to accurately diagnose a medical condition, you may have grounds to seek damages for medical malpractice. I have experience with a variety of misdiagnosis claims, including the following:
- Cancer misdiagnosis
- Misdiagnosis of spinal cord injuries
- Lab test and pathology errors
- Heart problems
- Brain abnormalities
- Child infections
Failure to diagnose and prevent heart attacks and strokes: Heart attacks and strokes have telltale signs that should drive any doctor to take immediate action to minimize the impact on the patient. Failure to do so can result in devastating and sometimes fatal complications.
Birth injuries: I have experience handling many different birth injury claims involving harm to both mother and child, including the following:
Surgical errors: I have represented clients in a variety of surgical error cases, including operating on the wrong body part, retained instruments, unnecessary surgery, anesthesia errors and negligent postoperative care.
Medication errors: My firm has experience handling a vast array of medication error claims, including the following:
- Pharmaceutical errors
- Defective drugs
- Drug recalls
- Misuse of Coumadin
- Overdose due to pharmaceutical errors
- C-diff infection from antibiotic overuse
Physician/hospital negligence: Whenever a person who works at a hospital makes an error that threatens or negatively impacts a patient’s welfare, it can create grounds for a malpractice claim against the medical professional personally as well as the hospital or clinic where he or she is employed.
Emergency room malpractice: Emergency room doctors and staff must make sound medical decisions on a moment’s notice. If they make the wrong decision and patients suffer as a result, they can and should be held accountable for the harm they cause.
OB/GYN malpractice: OB/GYNs have a duty of care to their patients through all stages of pregnancy. Any failure to fulfill that duty can jeopardize the well-being of both mother and child.
Psychiatric malpractice: When mental health professionals fail to perform their jobs correctly, patients can suffer a broad range of negative effects.
Nursing home abuse and neglect: I have experience with a broad range of nursing home neglect claims, including bedsores, septicemia, failure to diagnose and treat a medical condition, medication errors and many others.
