Van Dyke Law, LLC’s Connecticut and Massachusetts medical malpractice lawyer has handled numerous wrongful death matters and injury claims involving the improper and negligent diagnosis, surgeries and advice of healthcare professionals.
New innovations in medicine have led to a number of advances in healthcare which help people live longer lives and combat serious diseases. However, accidents do unfortunately occur on nearly a daily basis in hospitals and other healthcare centers that are largely the fault of the professionals who were supposed to help us. Doctors, nurses, and health care professionals often make mistakes in diagnoses, surgeries, and medical advice. These mistakes should not go unpunished as they can quickly become fatal or lead to severe injuries.
Medical malpractice is a frightening thought. We depend on hospitals, doctors, and nurses for our healthcare and to properly treat us when we have something wrong happen to our bodies. We do not expect to come out worse than we came in. When that does happen, it can shatter our faith in the health care system and can lead to lifelong ailments and heightened medical bills. Each year around 100,000 people die due to medical errors which could have easily been prevented if everyone acted within the proper standard of care.
Medical malpractice injuries can include:
- Improper dosage
- Surgery errors
- Treatment errors
- Hospital negligence
- Anesthesia complications
These injuries have the potential to lead to extreme injury and even death in some cases. We put our utmost trust in hospitals and doctors to correct our injuries and not to create new ones. If you have been injured due to the medical malpractice of a doctor or other health care professional, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your injuries, including:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Future earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment/loss of consortium
Medical malpractice is a difficult claim to bring in some instances because it requires the utmost documentation as well as clear breach of a duty of care that all medical professionals hold.
