You should never have to be the victim of negligence
Medical malpractice, also known as medical negligence, is a legal term for an injury or illness that results from a healthcare provider’s departure from accepted standards of care. Some medical mistakes that may validate a medical malpractice claim are:
- Failure to diagnose
- Administering or prescribing the wrong medication
- Failure to order tests
- Failure to act on test results
- Leaving items inside a patient during surgery
In the United States, people injured by medical malpractice can pursue compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. Our medical malpractice attorneys at Carlson Bier, represent patients injured or killed by substandard care and help them obtain justice and financial recovery.
A personal injury lawsuit is about justice
This is not about punishing a doctor, hospital, or medical facility. This is about making sure you are taken care of. Depending on the severity of the injury, you may lose wages, you may have incredibly high medical bills, and you may need long term care. Whatever the consequences are from the medical mistake, you need to make sure you and your family do not suffer any additional costs.
Proving medical negligence in court can be complex. Doctors are often reluctant to testify against fellow physicians. Experts may need to testify about proper procedure and standards of care. Medical records may need to be evaluated. Additional investigation may need to happen. Our attorneys have the experience to evaluate all aspects of your case. We will exhaust our resources to ensure you have a settlement or judgment that is just.
