At our personal injury law firm, our legal team has extensive experience handling these types of complex cases and stays up-to-date on medical malpractice laws. We know how to investigate these claims and will work tirelessly to ensure you receive maximum compensation for your damages.
Medical malpractice is a complex area of law that can be challenging for individuals to navigate on their own. If you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice, it’s important to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer who can help you understand your legal rights and options.
At the Moore Law Firm, our medical malpractice attorneys have years of experience representing clients who have been injured as a result of medical negligence. We understand the devastating impact that medical malpractice can have on individuals and families, and we are committed to helping our clients recover the compensation they deserve.
When you work with a medical malpractice lawyer at the Moore Law Firm, we will begin by investigating the incident to determine whether medical malpractice occurred. This investigation will typically involve reviewing medical records, consulting with medical experts, and gathering other relevant evidence to build a strong case and identify the medical error.
It’s important to note that medical malpractice cases can be complex, and it’s not always easy to determine whether medical negligence occurred. However, our attorneys have the knowledge, skills, and resources necessary to thoroughly investigate your case and determine whether you have a viable claim.
Once we have gathered evidence to support your claim, we will work with the insurance company to negotiate a fair settlement. Insurance companies are often more interested in protecting their bottom line than in compensating victims and may make a lowball settlement offer in hopes that you will accept it and just go away.
The attorneys on our legal team are skilled negotiators who understand how to negotiate with insurance companies to ensure that our clients receive fair financial compensation for their injuries.
Damages you may be entitled to include:
If we are unable to reach a fair settlement with the insurance company, we will file a medical malpractice lawsuit on your behalf. In some cases, the insurance company may offer a better settlement during this time. However, if a fair settlement cannot be reached, the case will proceed to trial.
If your case goes to trial, our lawyers will represent you in court. We have extensive experience representing clients in medical malpractice cases and will work tirelessly to ensure that your rights are protected throughout the legal process.
There are many different types of medical malpractice claims, including:
One of the most common types of medical malpractice claims involves diagnostic errors. This type of error occurs when a medical professional fails to properly diagnose a condition or illness. A diagnostic error can lead to delayed treatment or improper treatment, which can worsen the condition of the patient.
Surgical errors occur when a medical professional makes a mistake during a surgical procedure. Examples of surgical errors include operating on the wrong body part, leaving surgical instruments inside the patient, and performing the wrong surgical procedure.
Anesthesia errors occur when a patient is given too much or too little anesthesia during a surgical procedure. Anesthesia errors can lead to serious complications, including brain damage, heart attack, and even death.
Medication errors occur when a medical professional prescribes the wrong medication, administers the wrong dose of medication, or fails to recognize a drug interaction. Medication errors can cause serious harm, including allergic reactions, organ damage, and even death.
Birth injuries are a type of medical malpractice claim that occurs during childbirth. Examples of birth injuries include cerebral palsy, brain damage, and nerve damage. These injuries can occur due to improper use of medical instruments during childbirth, failure to properly monitor the fetus or failure to recognize signs of distress during labor.
Misdiagnosis occurs when a medical professional diagnoses a patient with the wrong illness or condition. This can lead to delayed treatment or improper treatment, which can worsen the patient’s condition.
