People who suffer injury, or heirs of a person who dies, due to the improper care of healthcare or medical professionals, are entitled to pursue a medical malpractice claim. The improper care can be negligent, intentional, or malicious, all of which would entitle the injured party to recovery. Medical malpractice can be caused by anyone in the medical profession from general practitioners, to specialists, to dentists, to even nurses. Some of the most common causes of medical malpractice cases include, but are not limited to:
* Failure to Properly Diagnose Medical Conditions
* Failure to Properly Treat Medical Conditions
* Failure to Refer to a Specialist
* Failure to Disclose all Risks of Treatment
* Surgical Errors
* Medication Errors
* Patient Neglect
* Elder Abuse
In medical malpractice claims there is a deadline to file your claim called the Statute of Limitations. Since the Statute of Limitations varies depending on the particular circumstances involved, time is of the essence. You must take immediate action and contact an attorney to review your rights. Once the Statute of Limitations has passed, you can no longer file your claim, no matter how good your case might have been.
The Meissner Law Firm will fight for you and vigorously pursue your case, if accepted, to ensure that medical and healthcare professionals who are responsible for injuries to patients in their care will be held accountable.
