If you’ve been the victim of misdiagnosis, medical malpractice, or a health care provider’s mistake that has caused you harm, contact a medical malpractice attorney at Becker Law Office right away to discuss your rights.
The personal injury attorneys at Becker Law Office have represented victims of medical malpractice for more than 30 years. Every day, our offices in Louisville and Lexington, KY, help people who have suffered serious injuries, including complications from improper medical care.
Medical malpractice occurs when a physician fails to properly treat a medical condition, resulting in a new or aggravating injury to the patient. Medical malpractice lawsuits may arise when a physician acts in a manner that would be considered unacceptable when compared to how another physician with similar training might act.
Many people don’t realize that doctors aren’t the only medical professionals whom patients can sue for malpractice. In fact, most health care providers including chiropractors, therapists, nurses, psychologists and dentists are subject to such legal action.
By the same token, an unanticipated or unsuccessful result from medical treatment or surgery does not in itself mean that you can bring a malpractice case.
Of course, this is just a sampling of some of the more common examples of medical malpractice claims. The array of complications and problems that can arise as a result of medical malpractice are far too complex and detailed to address each instance in detail.
If you think you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice, it’s in your best interest to contact an attorney with experience in medical malpractice cases as quickly as possible. In Kentucky and many other states, victims have up to two years following the discovery of an injury to file a claim. If you wait too long before speaking to an attorney, the statute of limitations may keep you from pursuing legal action.
On your initial visit, your attorney will review your claims, along with your medical records, and consult with a medical expert to determine if yours is a case of medical malpractice.
Victims of medical malpractice can sue for the injuries incurred and all direct consequences of those injuries including mental and physical pain and suffering lost wages, medical expenses, or other economic damages. If you or a loved one has suffered due to medical malpractice or medical mistakes, please contact Bubalo Law PLC to learn about your rights and legal options regarding your medical malpractice claim.
When a hospital or health care team fails to properly treat a medical condition and accidentally causes or aggravates a patient’s injury, they may be liable for the damages caused by their medical malpractice.
Proving that a doctor, a hospital, or a medical staff is at fault for medical malpractice requires extensive research and expert testimonies. The medical malpractice team at Becker Law Office has the resources to handle your claim and hire experts to review your specific situation.
