When already facing the uncertainty and vulnerability of a medical procedure, it is especially devastating when things do not go as planned. Injury or death resulting from a medical mistake is one of the greatest violations one can experience. If you have been injured or have lost a loved one as the result of a doctor or hospital’s fault or carelessness, the Harris Law Office is prepared to seek justice for your family.
Medical mistakes can change your life forever.
Victims of medical mistakes may sustain many kinds of injuries, including:
- Pre- or post-natal injury or death
- Brain injury or brain damage
- Death caused by improper anesthesia
- Foreign objects left during surgery
Regardless of the injury, your family may be facing further unexpected medical procedures and bills, expensive treatments and an uncertain future. You may also have lost income ability, and are certainly struggling with the personal strain such circumstances cause for your family.
In the worst case, medical mistakes may result in the death of the patient.
We are prepared to help you through this difficult time.
Harris Law Office will help you understand what happened to cause your injury, and will advocate for compensation for you and your family in court.
Medical malpractice cases are most often brought against a physician who:
- Failed to use reasonable care in your treatment
- Lacked proper skills
- Disregarded established medical rules
If a jury finds the physician at fault for your injury because of any of these reasons or other negligence or carelessness, the doctor will be required to pay for your injuries.
What You Should Do
Talk with an attorney at Harris Law Office who is experienced in such cases. At your consultation, be prepared to answer specific questions about your situation, including:
- What happened to you from the first time you visited the doctor through your last contact with him or her?
- What were the details of your illness or injury?
- How did your doctor treat your illness or injury?
- What did your doctor tell you about your treatment?
- Did you follow your doctor’s instructions?
- What happened to you?
Answers to these and other questions become extremely important if you think your doctor may have committed malpractice. Each state has specific time limits or deadlines within which to bring personal injury cases, including malpractice, so it is essential that you speak with a lawyer who knows the law as soon as you receive or discover the injury.
If you or a loved one have been injured or a victim of medical malpractice, please contact us immediately.
