A medical malpractice case can arise out of any number of reasons. A nurse may administer the wrong medication to a patient, a doctor may make a diagnosing error or fail to diagnose an issue altogether, or an anesthesiologist may administer an overdose.
Mistakes like these have fatal consequences, which may have grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit. With so much at stake, it is essential to have an experienced lawyer by your side like the ones at Barfoot & Schoettker.
Medical malpractice lawsuits are some of the most difficult but are one way of ensuring that when a doctor, nurse or any medical caregiver causes their patient harm, that harm is justly compensated.
The following is a list of some of the most common types of medical malpractice cases:
- Failure to diagnose conditions such as cancer or a possible cardiac problem
- Mistakes made during surgery
- Mistakes made in the emergency room
- Anesthesia errors
- Errors leading to a wrongful death
Many find that even when medical professionals are responsible for a patient's injuries, insurance companies try to place blame on the patient, negotiate a low settlement, or deny the claim altogether. The lawyers at Barfoot & Schoettker are prepared to fight for you every step of the way to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
