Certain professions tend to automatically elicit trust from the public: police officers, firefighters, and doctors. In the United States, medical errors and mistakes needlessly kill hundreds of thousands of people every year. This fact is frightening. What’s more, medical malpractice can occur when hospitals and doctors are more concerned business as usual rather than improving patient care by taking steps to ensure a preventable medical mistake is not repeated.
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, nurse, or other healthcare provider provides, or fails to provide, care that falls below that which a reasonably prudent and safe healthcare provider would provide under same or similar circumstances, and the patient is unnecessarily harmed. Examples of medical negligence include performing surgery on the wrong limb, incorrectly interpreting a radiology study (x-ray, CT scan, or MRI) which results in a delayed cancer diagnosis, and failing to timely act upon potentially dangerous laboratory results.
Medical malpractice cases are complex. In some cases, human error and poor patient outcomes are considered to be known and accepted risks and complications. Mistakes can and do happen. However, many medical mistakes are preventable, and those mistakes’ consequences can be dire, if not fatal. If a healthcare provider has been negligent, he or she must be held accountable.
Medical malpractice victims can seek compensation for their injuries. Gladstein Law Firm has extensive experience handling medical negligence cases, and can help establish the best course of action for each case. Every patient has different circumstances and deserves the individual attention Gladstein Law Firm provides.
Few moments in life are as precious as the birth of a baby, and the moment cannot be recaptured once it is over. When a preventable medical mistake causes a birth injury, many people’s lives are permanently changed for the worse. Most birth injuries affect the child and his or her parents for the rest of their lives.
Rarely do the consequences of a birth injury go away when the mother and baby check out of the hospital. In fact, depending on the injury, the baby may not be able to check out when the mother does. This is usually the beginning of the significant financial obligations that must be paid, solely because of a healthcare provider’s mistakes. It seems logical to assume a doctor and hospital would take responsibility for the financial and other consequences they set in motion. Most times, however, they do not. The impact a preventable birth injury can have on a family include: loss of income, pain and suffering, medical expenses, and home modifications.
If you believe a doctor or hospital’s negligence caused a birth injury, which resulted in serious physical and financial damages, Gladstein Law Firm is ready to discuss your case.
