Every year thousands of people are killed, disfigured, or seriously injured by medical malpractice. Physicians have an obligation to their patients to use a degree of care, skill, and judgment which another doctor practicing under similar circumstances would use, having due regard for the state of medical science at the time that the patient was treated.
A physician who fails to conform to these standards is considered to be negligent. And if that negligence causes injury or death to a patient, that physician should be held responsible. Any medical professional must operate within recognized standards of practice or be subject to a lawsuit. The attorney at Simon Law Firm represent clients in the following areas of medical malpractice cases:
- Wrongful death
- Improper administration of the wrong drugs
- Operating on the wrong body part
- Performing procedures physician is not licensed to perform
- Leaving a foreign object in the patient
- Misrepresenting credentials
- Paralysis caused by severed nerve during surgery
- Improper delivery during childbirth, causing defects
Insurance companies often want to settle medical malpractice claims quickly, in order to minimize the amount that they have to pay you for your loss. If a settlement is made too quickly after an accident has occured, the full impact of the injury may not be known. If you accept an early settlement offer from an insurance company, you may be waiving your right to seek additional compensation later on if it turns out that the injury is more serious than you thought. Dealing with an insurance company can be difficult and frustrating. When you hire the Simon Law Firm the insurance company will then be obligated to deal with us, allowing you to focus on your recovery.
