Recovery Starts Here In Lexington
Our medical malpractice lawyers in Lexington are experienced professionals who understand the complex nature of medical malpractice claims. We will carefully comb through the victim’s medical records and work with medical professionals, including specialists, to determine exactly where mistakes occurred. We aren’t afraid of difficult claims. We have over 20 years of experience aggressively pursuing compensation for both injury victims and their families, so we know what we are doing.
Is Your Family Suffering Due To A Negligent Medical Professional?
Medical professionals, just like everyone else, are capable of mistakes. The Journal of the American Medical Association declared medical negligence the third leading cause of death in the country. Only heart disease and cancer claim more victims. One careless mistake by an emergency medical technician, nurse, doctor, or another healthcare provider can affect a victim and his or her family members forever.
We Hold Medical Professionals Accountable
Medical professionals are held to a high standard of care — and they should be. When they make a negligent error, it can cost a life or leave someone helpless and in pain.
We look at each case to determine if a medical professional failed to meet the expected standard of care for his or her profession. A surgeon, for example, is expected to treat a patient with the same degree of skill and care expected by any reasonably competent surgeon under similar circumstances. If he or she fails to act in a way that adheres to that standard, we can take action.
We Handle All Types Of Malpractice Claims
There are many ways that medical malpractice can occur. Some of the most common mistakes include:
- Diagnostic errors such as the failure of diagnosis, misdiagnosis, and delayed diagnosis of heart attacks, cancer, appendicitis, diabetes, and strokes
- Surgical errors, including wrong-site surgery, wrong-patient surgery, damage to organs, nicked veins and left behind instruments
- Anesthesia failures can lead to brain injuries, coma, death, damage to the esophagus, and even burns
- Prescription drug mistakes that include incorrect dosage, ignored allergies, wrong medications, pharmacy errors, and the failure to warn patients of reasonably anticipated complications or risks
- Childbirth complications can devastate an entire family. Common issues include the failure to perform a cesarean delivery when the mother or infant is in distress, resulting in conditions like cerebral palsy.
