Medical Instances of Malpractice
Emergency Room Error
Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
Medication or Drug Error
Failure to Diagnose
Nursing Home Abuse
Nursing homes, retirement homes and assisted living facilities are places that we trust to the care and well-being of our loved ones. A nursing home or assisted living facility should provide a safe environment to heal and live. Tragically, far too often, these facilities not only fail to meet these needs, but they may also abuse and neglect residents in their care. When residents are abused and neglected, the environment is no longer safe. If you witness mistreatment or suspect that your loved ones are victims of elder abuse or neglect, don’t hesitate, call us and schedule a free consultation with our medical malpractice lawyer.
Emergency Room Error
When a medical emergency occurs, the doctors, nurses, and medical staff at hospitals and medical emergency facilities are responsible to ensure that patients receive a proper medical diagnosis and care in a timely manner. If a reasonable standard level of care is not administered, an emergency room error or medical mistake may occur. Though there is no guarantee that any medical treatment or procedure will be 100% effective, there are certain circumstances where emergency room mistakes may be preventable. If you believe that you or a loved one have been victims of medical malpractice, please give us a call and talk to our medical malpractice lawyer.
Medication & Prescription Drug Errors:
Patients place their trust into their medical care providers, pharmacists and the pharmaceutical industry. Most of the time that trust is well placed. However, sometimes the medication that is supposed to heal causes harm. Every year, countless people suffer from painful side effects that result from medication errors. Medication errors can occur in a variety of ways. A doctor’s illegible handwriting may lead to being provided the wrong medication or dose. A doctor may prescribe a medication without taking into account a patient’s medical history. A pharmacy assistant may commit pharmacy malpractice by mistakenly giving a person another medication instead of the one prescribed. A pharmaceutical company may package different doses of the same medication in similar packaging causing a healthcare provider to give the wrong dose.
Wrongful death is a term that is used to describe the wrongful killing of another person. Wrongful death usually occurs unexpectedly and can result from a vast array of things such as: transportation accidents, birth injuries, medical malpractice, or workplace accidents. Families who have lost a loved one due to wrongful death often have many things on their minds. They may have many unanswered questions. The last thing families who have wrongfully lost their loved ones should have to worry about is paying their loved one’s medical bills, funeral expenses, or making up income.
