Medical Errors and Medical Malpractice
Hospital acquired infections, defective medical devices, patient falls, blood clots, prescription errors, surgical error, delayed childbirth delivery, missed diagnosis are examples of events and outcomes that may cause serious personal injury or the tragic death of a loved one. They also constitute medical malpractice.
Medical negligence claims can be some of the most aggressively defended, most complex, and most difficult to resolve. They require careful investigation before a lawsuit is filed, and require intelligent, experienced legal counsel at the helm.
