How to tell if you have a viable medical malpractice claim

Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, surgeon, nurse, hospital or other healthcare professional fails to properly treat or diagnose a medical condition according to the standards of their profession. A medical provider deviating from the accepted standards of medical care is also classified as medical malpractice. Medical malpractice is also called medical negligence. There are many forms of medical malpractice, including:

  • Failure to properly treat an ailment
  • Misdiagnosis of a medical condition
  • Surgical misadventures
  • Birth injury
  • Medicine mix-up
  • Accidental overdose in hospital
  • Medical care below accepted standard
  • Emergency room mistakes

If you have experienced pain and suffering, loss of income, emotional distress, or permanent disability as a result of a medical error, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the medical professional or healthcare provider who caused the injury. A successful medical malpractice case can result in a substantial cash settlement for the patient.

The shortest distance between injury and compensation in the Springfield area

The experienced medical malpractice litigators at Londrigan Potter Randle have more than 180 years of combined experience in complicated areas of practice such as:

  • Birth Injuries. A few moments of medical negligence during your baby’s birth can have tragic and lifelong emotional and financial consequences.
  • Misdiagnosis. Some doctors are quick to blame equipment for serious medical misdiagnoses, but medical negligence may be the true cause if your condition is either much more serious or much less serious than the doctor initially led you to believe.
  • Surgical errors. Surgical errors are much more common than most people think, even supposedly rare cases involving leaving a foreign object inside a patient’s body. One study suggests that hospitals may subtly encourage such behavior because they can charge more money to the patient’s insurance company to fix the error.
  • Medical device errors. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is increasingly concerned with the growing number of medical device errors. So are the lawyers at Londrigan Potter Randle.
