Seek Counsel if you Suspect Medical Malpractice

July 29, 2020

All doctors and healthcare professionals dedicate their careers to the health and well-being of their patients. But sometimes, mistakes happen opening the door for medical malpractice — when a hospital, doctor or other health care professional, through a negligent act or omission, causes injury to a patient. The negligence might be the result of errors in diagnosis, treatment, aftercare or health management.

At the office of Walter J. Pink & Associates, PC, our team of skilled attorneys will carefully review the particulars of a person’s injury to ensure that all elements of a solid medical malpractice claim are present. For situations that warrant it, we will litigate lawsuits based on the negligent conduct of all medical professionals involved, including their employers, such as hospitals, health care clinics and medical corporations.

Here are some examples of medical negligence that can lead to a malpractice suit:

  • Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis
  • Misreading or ignoring laboratory results
  • Unnecessary surgery
  • Surgical errors or wrong site surgery
  • Improper medication or dosage
  • Poor follow-up or aftercare
  • Premature discharge
  • Disregarding or not taking appropriate patient history
  • Failure to order proper testing
  • Failure to recognize symptoms

To be considered medical malpractice under the law, claims must meet the three criteria: there’s been a violation of the established standard of care; the injury was caused by the negligence which led to injury; and lastly, the injury resulted in significant personal damage — such as disability, loss of income, unusual pain, suffering and hardship, or significant past and future medical bills.
