Medical professionals are amongst those we trust the most, which is why it is even more devastating when one of them harms a patient by either misconduct or negligence. We hold individuals in these professions at a higher level than the average person, and they understand their responsibility before undertaking a career in healthcare. When a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional causes injury due to medical malpractice, it is crucial that they are held responsible. Simpson Peterson will fight on your behalf to ensure justice is served. We cannot let negligent doctors continue to treat and hurt patients. If you have sustained an injury at the hands of a medical professional, contact our office today.
When you are undergoing a surgical procedure, you are already scared about the known risks. However, when a surgeon commits malpractice and fails to rise to the standard of duty that we expect, it can have disastrous results. Common situations involve gauze or medical instruments being left inside patients, incorrect surgeries being applied, insufficient anesthetic, reckless mistakes, and complete neglect can turn a typical procedure into a nightmare. If you believe you are the victim of surgical malpractice, you need to talk to someone right away.
Hospital Neglect & Malpractice
If you are being treated for illness or injury within the hospital, you rely on the staff to complete their jobs and follow the doctor’s orders. However, when those orders are incorrect or followed incorrectly, it can lead to severe injury. Incorrect medications or the wrong dosage given can cause severe reactions or death. Some patients are completely ignored or abandoned despite their pain or illness. This can lead to physical and emotional injuries.
