Holding Medical Providers Accountable After A Tragedy
In an ideal world, patients should be able to trust that their medical providers will provide high-quality, professional care. But the facts don’t bear this out. Thousands of people die or are injured every year as a result of the negligence of doctors, nurses or other health care professionals.
This is referred to as medical malpractice, and the consequences can be tragic for everyone involved. At Whiting Law, our attorneys can help you determine how to obtain compensation after you have suffered medical malpractice.
Should You Consider Taking Legal Action?
A medical malpractice lawsuit may be a necessary course of action if you (or a relative) have been injured or a loved one dies as a result of a health care provider’s carelessness or negligence. insurers, hospitals and medical providers often deny any wrongdoing or obscure the facts, hoping you will abandon your claim.
In this way, you may be able to be compensated for disability, pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills and more.
If you think you or someone you care about is a victim of negligence related to medical services, give us a call at 248-355-5900. We will investigate the circumstances of your injury and evaluate, along with you, any legal steps you can take in an attempt to recover your losses.
What Is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice is when a medical care provider is negligent. If a medical professional deviates from the standard protocol for caring for a patient, and that patient is injured or dies as a result, the medical professional may bear the responsibility for what has happened and be liable for expenses related to the injury.
Why You Should Work With A Skilled Lawyer
Medical malpractice cases are among the most complex types of personal injury cases. Not all personal injury attorneys handle these matters, and for good reason.
Medical malpractice cases take a long time to resolve, are expensive to pursue, and require a substantial medical and legal understanding. At Whiting Law, we do have the legal and financial resources to represent clients in medical malpractice cases – and win.
We are qualified to advocate for clients harmed by a variety of preventable medical mistakes, including:
- Surgical errors
- Failure to diagnose or treat a condition, illness or injury
- A misdiagnosis
- Anesthesia error, prescription error or other types of drug error
- Labor and birth injuries
When you work with us, we will thoroughly examine all the aspects of your situation to determine whether the medical professional has provided care that aligns with the standards of care required. We make this assessment by comparing their actions to others’ actions in similar positions in the same geographical region.
In this way, we can look at the course of treatment that a reasonably competent medical professional would provide and compare that to the actions taken by your medical provider.
If there was a problem with your medical treatment, you owe it to yourself and your family to find out what caused the injury and see if you are entitled to compensation to help you face the consequences of the injury.
When we pursue a claim for you, rest assured that we will obtain and review the necessary medical records and consult with medical experts to see whether your injury was definitively caused by medical malpractice. Following that investigation, we will work for your rights.
