Common Types Of Medical Malpractice Accidents And Injuries
There are numerous situations that lead to medical malpractice cases. Cases can involve a treating doctor, a member of the medical and nursing staff at a hospital or any other health care provider.

- Nursing home malpractice, abuse, bedsores and slip-and-fall accidents
- Dental malpractice
- Retained medical instruments, scissors, needles, sponges…..
Our medical malpractice department includes an attorney who is also an experienced, board-certified medical doctor whose knowledge and background provide invaluable insight.

Our entire team works hard to fully analyze your case and develop a strong position in order to secure full and fair compensation for your injuries.
Medical Malpractice Case Results
$5 Million Settlement – An infant developed cerebral palsy due to a delay in his birth. The child will need constant medical care for the rest of his life.
$4 Million Settlement – An infant was born with gastrointestinal problems. After almost three months, the baby began losing weight. Despite clear indications that the baby was dehydrated, no action was taken to admit the infant to the hospital during her last doctor visit. Further complications were ignored. Ultimately, the infant suffered permanent and severe brain damage.
$1 Million Settlement – Medical malpractice action against a psychiatrist who removed a young bipolar woman from her medication “cold turkey” rather than gradually. This lack of medication resulted in increasing feelings of hopelessness, fear, paranoia and racing thoughts. Desperate for these feelings to stop, she went to the roof of her house and jumped 25 feet to the concrete driveway below. Our client sustained serious permanent injuries to her back and feet.
$885,000 Settlement – Medical malpractice action where a patient was misdiagnosed by her gynecologist, which caused a delay in treatment for breast cancer. This settlement represented the majority of the available coverage on the doctor’s insurance policy and was reached shortly after the Defendant doctor’s deposition.
How Do I File A Malpractice Lawsuit And Get A Settlement?
Medical malpractice cases typically involve several parties, including the injured, health care providers and insurance companies. There are strict time limits on filing malpractice suits and failing to adhere to these statutes of limitation may preclude your financial recovery. On some claims a notice MUST be filed within 90 days of the act of malpractice to preserve the claim. As soon as possible after your injury, it is important to seek the advice and assistance of an experienced medical malpractice attorney. Our attorneys meet directly with you to review your case and outline the procedures necessary to receive compensation. We work with investigators to obtain witness statements and evidence and bring in experts and specialists to support your claims, if necessary. We strive to negotiate a just settlement to cover medical bills, lost wages and future earnings and pain and suffering. If negotiations with the defendant and/or insurance company fail to provide a solution, we take your case to trial to ensure that every avenue of recovery is explored.
