When this happens, you can hold the responsible parties financially accountable for your losses.

How a Medical Malpractice Lawyer Can Help

Most times, you are not only dealing with the aftermath of an injury, but you may be facing months or years of costly medical expenses and treatment. An experienced and skilled attorney can help you obtain compensation and damages for your injury, illness, or disability to keep you from financial ruin.
Medical malpractice cases can be extremely complicated. Proving malpractice involves meeting many requirements, beyond just showing your outcome was unsatisfactory. A highly experienced medical malpractice attorney will know the expected standards of care in the medical community and have a team of professionals on call to assist in demonstrating that your injury was the direct cause of a health care provider’s error or neglect.
Experienced medical malpractice lawyers will know how to interview witnesses, review medical records, and analyze the facts of your case to ensure that you are not denied the compensation that you deserve. There are strict statutes of limitations for filing malpractice claims, so it is important not to wait to file a claim but to consult an attorney as soon as possible.

Types of Medical Malpractice Cases We Handle
Medical malpractice covers a wide variety of cases. Some of the most common medical malpractice claims we handle at our firm include:
- Surgery – Surgical errors, such as puncturing an organ or operating on the wrong part of the body, can cause serious injury. The doctor may be using improper procedures or may fail to give proper instructions or the correct medication, causing serious harm.
- Diagnostic Errors – A misdiagnosis results in treatments that are not appropriate and cause harm. A failure to diagnose leads to the patient missing opportunities for proper treatment, allowing their illness or injury to get worse.
- Anesthesia – A small error on the part of the anesthesiologist could result in serious permanent injuries, severe brain damage, or death. Medical malpractice occurs when the anesthesiologist fails to investigate a patient’s medical history or to inform the patient of any risks involved.
- Prescription Drug Errors – A victim can suffer a devastating injury by being prescribed the wrong medications by the doctor because of a misdiagnosis, or being treated with the wrong medication because of negligence on the part of the doctor or nurse.
- Childbirth/Labor – The health care provider may make serious mistakes in providing prenatal care to the mother, such as a failure to diagnose or detect birth defects in the womb. They may also make errors during delivery itself, causing permanent injuries to the child or mother.
- Defective Products – Medical malpractice claims can be caused by defective medical devices, such as defibrillators, stents, implants, or pumps. In these cases, you may be able to hold the manufacturer liable in addition to the healthcare provider.
If you suffered injuries as a result of any of these circumstances, or some other situation where you believe a healthcare professional did not behave as they should, contact the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, Accident & Injury Lawyers, Ltd., as soon as possible.
Proving a Medical Malpractice Case
To prove that medical malpractice occurred, the case must contain the following factors:
- A relationship existed between the doctor and an individual. An individual must have picked the doctor to perform medical duties and the doctor must have provided medical treatment.
- The appropriate standard of health care was violated. A patient has a right to assume that the doctor or health care provider will treat them as well as any reasonable health care provider would in similar circumstances.
- An individual suffered an injury because of a health care provider’s medical negligence. The patient’s injury occurred because of negligence or error on the part of the doctor, nurse, or health care provider.
- An individual suffered significant damage due to the injury caused by the medical provider. Medical malpractice cases require hours of dispositions and testimony from several medical experts to provide compelling evidence of malpractice and demonstrate injury.
A lawyer can help gather the necessary evidence to prove all four of these elements in your case. Contact us today so we can get started on your case, because evidence can disappear the longer you wait.
