Common Medical Malpractice Injuries
Every year, countless people are injured across the United States due to medical malpractice. The injuries suffered in a typical medical malpractice case are catastrophic, including brain bleeds, cerebral palsy, overdose, paralysis, infection and undiagnosed illness. Unfortunately, the medical practice errors experienced by a patient can cause permanent disabling injuries and, in extreme cases, even death.
Experienced Medical Malpractice Lawyers
If you have suffered an injury due to the negligence of a hospital, doctor or nurse — including misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, surgical errors, medication errors, or anesthesia errors — contact our office for help. In a medical malpractice case, proving damages requires an experienced medical malpractice attorney. Not only must the attorney have a firm understanding of applicable medical malpractice laws, he or she must also have resources necessary to retain the doctors, nurses and other specialists needed to prove your medical malpractice case. At Portner ♦ Bond, PLLC, we work with experienced, accredited doctors and nurses to investigate and prepare the strongest case possible.
Birth Injury Lawyers
Simply put, delivery is a monumental medical event that has the potential to be dangerous for both mother and baby. Though natural complications sometimes arise, you should be able to trust that your physician’s team will follow all required protocol and not do anything that might put you or your baby in greater harm’s way. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen and the effects can be dire.
Common Birth Injuries
There are many scenarios that may result in birth injuries or defects. Some of the most common we’ve handled for our clients include, but are not limited to:
- Improper or excessive use of forceps or vacuum extraction
- Inadequate fetal monitoring during labor
- Oxygen deprivation
- C-section errors
- Post-birth monitoring errors
- Brain injuries
- Detached placenta
- Uterine rupture
- Skin & soft tissue injury
- Infant skull fracture
- Wrongful death
If you or your child suffered from any of the above listed conditions or other birth injuries as a result of your doctor’s negligence, they should be held accountable to discourage dangerous practices in the future. Furthermore, you deserve adequate financial compensation for any subsequent healthcare you or your baby may need.
In order to file a claim, we need all of the contact details of everyone who had a hand in your delivery. If you had a birth plan, we’ll want to evaluate it and see where your physician went astray. We can also seek to have your medical records related to the birth released so that we may understand exactly what happened during labor.
