Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Negligence by a doctor, hospital nurse, pharmacist or other health care provider can cause a serious medical injury. Patients who are forced to deal with this type of injury are often left not only with damages to their physical health, but also emotional scars from knowing that someone whom they believed could be trusted with their care did something that caused them harm.
Different types of medical injuries can occur that may have short or long-term term consequences for those affected. Birth injuries, injuries from surgical procedures, misdiagnoses, late diagnoses, and prescription errors are among the most commonly reported issues related to medical injury.
Patients who sustain a medical injury may have cause for legal action against the medical care providers that negligently damaged them. Some victims of medical injury have a misperception that signing a consent form for treatment relinquishes their right to take legal action, but that is not necessarily so. Physicians, surgeons and hospitals that perform invasive procedures or surgery must properly advise the patient of the risks, benefits, complications and alternatives to the proposed treatment. They must also perform the invasive procedure or surgery in accordance with applicable standards of medical practice.
