Medical Malpractice Claims

Holding Healthcare Providers Accountable

When healthcare professionals fail to provide the standard of care patients deserve, the consequences can be devastating. Medical malpractice encompasses a wide range of incidents, from surgical errors and misdiagnoses to birth injuries and medication errors. At Nelligan Law, we understand the profound impact these events can have on your life and well-being. Our dedicated team is committed to advocating for victims of medical malpractice, ensuring they receive the compensation and justice they deserve.

 

Examples of Medical Malpractice Claims

Medical malpractice can manifest in various ways, each significantly impacting patient health and well-being. Common examples include:

Surgical Errors: Mistakes made during surgery, such as operating on the wrong site or leaving surgical instruments inside the patient.

Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis: Failing to correctly diagnose a condition in a timely manner, leading to incorrect treatment or a lack of necessary treatment.

Birth Injuries: Negligence during childbirth that results in injury to the baby or mother, such as cerebral palsy or fractured bones.

Medication Errors: Prescribing the wrong medication or dosage, causing harm to the patient.

Failure to Treat: Discharging a patient too soon or failing to provide follow-up care, resulting in worsening of the condition.

If you’ve experienced any of these situations or other instances where you believe the care provided fell below the accepted standard, you might have a medical malpractice claim. These examples serve to illustrate the breadth of medical malpractice and underscore the importance of consulting with legal professionals to assess your specific circumstances.
