Representing Clients Nationwide
Medical malpractice cases are disturbingly common, even in today’s medically advanced society. Doctors can make bad decisions on even the simplest of tasks, and the injuries that result can be devastating and even fatal in some cases. The tricky thing with medical malpractice is that patients and their families may have little more to go on than a hunch that negligence occurred. That’s why it is so important that you talk to an attorney if you suspect wrongdoing. The talented lawyers at Chávez Law Group have helped thousands of families nationwide investigate and prosecute suspected malpractice, and they can help your family figure out what really happened.
Do You Have a Medical Malpractice Case?
You may have grounds to bring a claim against a doctor, hospital, or medical professional if a bad medical decision caused you or a loved one serious harm. While everyone makes mistakes and there is a certain margin of acceptable error in the medical field, medical malpractice lawsuits are based on the fact that the physician acted in a manner that is inconsistent with acceptable standards of care. Common types of medical malpractice cases often seen in courtrooms today include:
- Emergency room errors
- Surgical mistakes
- Failure to diagnose heart attack
- Failure to diagnose stroke
- Failure to diagnose cancer
- Birth injuries
- Medication errors
- Misread test results
- Surgery on the wrong site
- Premature hospital discharge
- Failure to obtain informed consent for treatment
- Wrong diagnosis
- Anesthesia errors
