Medical professionals such as doctors, nurses, obstetricians and anesthesiologists must meet a certain standard of care when treating patients. If they do not meet this standard, they can cause much more harm than they prevent. Any patient who has suffered from mistreatment should consider a medical malpractice claim.
Medical malpractice lawsuits are not easy. The Coral Springs personal injury attorneys of Heller & Heller, P.A., have the experience and knowledge to handle even the most complex, serious cases, including ones involving catastrophic injury and wrongful death. We can meet with you in a free initial consultation and quickly figure out whether you have a case and whether you are entitled to compensation.
Types of Medical Negligence and Malpractice Cases
Many malpractice claims involve one of more of the following issues:
- Failure to diagnose
- Medication errors
- Surgical errors
- Birth injuries: cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, etc.
- Emergency room errors
Not all mistakes on the part of doctors and other medical professionals qualify as medical malpractice. They must involve a failure by the medical professional to fulfill accepted standards of care, as understood by the medical community.
But not all “accepted standards of care” are set in stone. Some mistakes, such as a failure to diagnose cancer, are well-accepted as medical malpractice, but other types of mistakes are more difficult to judge. At the Coral Springs personal injury law firm of Heller & Heller, P.A., we get medical experts who can testify convincingly that a mistake qualifies as malpractice.
We opened our law firm with the belief that there is a responsible way to work with clients who have been injured. We start by caring and communicating throughout the legal process.
