We trust our medical professionals to take care of us. This means identifying problems, diagnosing those problems, and properly treating them so that the best quality of life can be achieved. Sometimes a condition can be completely cured and other times it needs to be properly maintained.
When something goes wrong during medical diagnosis or treatment, the results can be deadly. When the issue is with a medical professional’s negligence, then the matter becomes even more confusing.
With the effective advocacy of an experienced Southern Minnesota personal injury lawyer, the matter can be investigated so it can be determined whether or not malpractice occurred. If it did, then a case can be built for you that allows you to file a claim for compensation. The compensation that you could potentially receive can cover your medical expenses related to the negligent act, lost wages from missed work, and other applicable expenses.
Experienced In All Types Of Medical Malpractice
There are a number of acts that can warrant a medical malpractice lawsuit. Those acts include:
- Birth injuries
- Abuse or neglect while in a facility
- Contamination of injections or blood being given in a blood transfusion
- Performing surgery on the wrong part of the body
- Infection contracted at the hospital
- Anesthesia errors
- Prescribing the wrong medication or incorrect administration of a drug or administering the wrong drug
- Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosing a condition
These are just some of the acts that can warrant a medical malpractice lawsuit. Malpractice is essentially defined as any negligent act made by a medical professional that causes undue harm, such as an injury or causes an illness to worsen.
Fighting For The Compensation You Deserve
Medical malpractice cases can be complicated, which is why we aggressively advocate for you. Doctors carry medical malpractice insurance, but the insurance companies will never admit that there was ever any type of wrongdoing. While they may offer a settlement, they state that it is not admitting that the doctor did anything wrong. The settlement phase is an effort to avoid going to trial. If the case reaches a point where trial is going to produce the best result, your Minnesota personal injury lawyer will skillfully argue your case in court so you can obtain a result that will allow you to move on with your life. While trials can take a while, we will fight for you every step of the way.
