Our Springfield medical malpractice lawyers offer free initial consultations to answer questions about medical malpractice and explain your options if you think you are a victim of malpractice.
What Is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice occurs when a hospital or doctor fails to follow the standard of care and you are injured as a result. Examples of malpractice include:
- Failing to order proper tests to diagnose illnesses such as cancer
- Failure to provide proper monitoring of a fetus during before delivery
- Surgical errors such as operating on the wrong part of the body
- Emergency room errors such as discharging a patient who is experiencing symptoms of a heart attack
- Dispensing the wrong medication
Medical malpractice cases are hard to prove and require the use of experts. To file a claim against a hospital or doctor, our lawyers will need a written report from another doctor stating that there was a deviation from the standard of care in your case.
Due to the high cost of filing and proving a medical malpractice claim, our Springfield medical malpractice lawyers can only take on cases that involve significant damages.
