When You're Hurt By The Healers

If you put your trust in a medical professional who then injured you or made your condition worse, you may feel betrayed, but also conflicted about initiating a lawsuit. But a lawsuit may represent your best chance to secure the compensation you need to help pay for necessary medical treatment, lost wages and other costs arising from your injury.

At The Law Offices of David K. Cuneo, we will protect your rights and aggressively fight to keep your best interests a top priority. We will seek the maximum financial compensation allowed under the law to pay for your hospital expenses, ongoing treatments, lost wages, pain and suffering, disfigurement, as well as other damages.

Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional fails to perform the accepted standard of care to a patient, causing an injury or death. A standard of care is defined as the care that another reasonably competent medical provider would do under the same or similar situation.

Carelessness At The Hospital

Hospital negligence cases can be quite complex and difficult to litigate. In order for a claim to be successful, one must prove that the hospital or staff acted unreasonably and that these careless or negligent actions directly caused the injuries or death. We work in cooperation with medical expert witnesses who assist us in gathering and evaluating the medical evidence in order to establish that an accepted standard level of care was violated.

There is a defined time period in which a hospital malpractice lawsuit can be filed. Therefore, it is imperative to consult with a skilled hospital malpractice lawyer as soon as possible so that you do not lose your right to compensation.

Surgical Negligence Can Be Deadly

Human error and carelessness can have devastating effects for patients going into surgery. In some cases, the surgical error can result in permanent disability or even death of a patient. In cases where a surgical error could have been avoided, the patient may be legally entitled to compensation.

When The Symptoms Go Unheeded

Many medical malpractice lawsuits arise from situations in which a health care provider fails to correctly diagnose a disease or medical condition. Whether a failure to diagnose cancer, a heart attack, stroke, an infection or another condition, when there is a delay in diagnosis or a delay in treatment, a patient's condition may worsen or become untreatable. A disease may progress leaving patients with limited treatment options or to a point when treatment is no longer an option. An incorrect diagnosis can lead to serious consequences for any patient, including additional injuries, unnecessary procedures or even death.

Medication errors, anesthesia errors, negligence in the delivery room or a failure to obtain informed consent are also forms of medical negligence. If you have questions about an adverse medical event that happened to you or a loved one, schedule an appointment to talk to us about what happened.
