Assisting With Financial Recovery After Medical Mistakes Or Negligence
Though doctors take an oath to do no harm, unfortunately, mistakes, ignorance, negligence or misdiagnosis can do just that. Costly errors by medical professionals have serious implications that can cause lasting trauma for victims. If you believe you are a victim, it is in your best interest to contact an attorney experienced with medical malpractice cases to handle the complex legal process of holding the health care provider accountable.
Johnson Law PLC will fight on your behalf to ensure your financial recovery following a medical professional’s malpractice. We believe that health care providers should be held responsible for breaches in care that do irreparable damage to the health of their patients.
Common Types Of Medical Malpractice
Doctors, nurses, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and other health care providers are legally expected to provide a certain standard of care to anyone who comes to them for assistance. If their actions do not meet these standards and you are injured as a result, you have the right to sue for damages. Medical malpractice can involve:
- Birth injury
- Surgical error
- Cancer misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis
- Brain injury
- Emergency room error
- Failure to treat
- Anesthesia error
- Medication error
- Nerve damage
- Wrongful amputation
