Have you been injured by doctor or hospital negligence?
Medical malpractice occurs whenever a doctor, nurse, hospital, medical facility or medical personnel fails to take the proper actions or care, or perform a procedure incorrectly that leads to an illness or injury. Our medical field is expected to have the utmost care when treating patients, as we entrust them with our lives. When they fail to take their responsibility as seriously as they should, they need to be held accountable for their actions.
Medical malpractice can lead to severe and irreversible injuries, and some even lead to death. Some of the common reasons for medical malpractice include misdiagnosis, overwork of treating medical professionals, inadequate training, administering incorrect medications, poor equipment maintenance or surgical errors.
These types of claims are complex and require extensive knowledge of medical malpractice law. If you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice, you need a San Antonio personal injury lawyer to assist you in presenting a claim for damages. This type of claim may require medical experts to carefully review your medical treatment in order to find out how and why the medical malpractice occurred. The Malaise Law Firm has the resources you need to be able to fully document your claim and present a strong case for compensation.
Types of Medical Malpractice Injuries
Injuries suffered by those who have been victims of medical malpractice can include infections, removal of the wrong body part, incorrect dosage of drugs, birth injuries and even death. As most medical malpractice cases require additional medical treatment, your medical costs will likely be extensive and your recovery time lengthened, causing you to be unable to work. Additional medical treatment for the injury caused by the malpractice needs to be compensated for in any claim presented on your behalf, and because of the added trauma and suffering which this type of injury can create, you are likely entitled to pain and suffering compensation, especially if gross negligence can be shown.
With a well-prepared case showing full documentation of the negligence in your case, our legal firm will ensure you obtain the maximum monetary compensation you deserve, including recovery for your additional medical expenses, lost wages, and the pain and suffering caused by the trauma. Whether we aggressively negotiate your claim through settlement or at trial, you can feel confident the Malaise Law Firm will provide you with excellent legal representation.
