¿Cómo puede ayudar un abogado especializado en negligencias médicas?

Medical malpractice can occur when a physician, nurse, surgeon, or another medical professional breaches the standard of care during treatment, causing a preventable injury. The standard of care refers to the procedures a medical professional must follow when a patient seeks treatment. When you file a medical malpractice claim, you must prove that the medical professional not only breached the standard of care but that you suffered an injury as a result.

As you can see, a medical malpractice case can be very complex, and proving negligence can be challenging.

When you hire a medical malpractice lawyer at the Hines Law Firm, they will help you obtain evidence, determine causation and liability, protect you from claims adjusters, find medical experts that can back up your claims, and help you recover the compensation you deserve for an injury that was caused by the negligence of another.

What Are Common Types Of Medical Malpractice?

Medical professionals and hospitals never want to admit to malpractice or negligence as this can be very damaging to their reputation and will cost them. If you believe you were a victim of medical malpractice, you need an experienced medical malpractice lawyer with a proven track record of success to help you fight for the fair settlement you deserve. At the Hines Law Firm, we have handled many medical malpractice cases that were caused due to:

01

Misdiagnosis

A misdiagnosis can occur when a physician fails to recognize the issues or condition that their patient is dealing with, resulting in a host of problems later on, such as the patient’s condition progressing to a stage that is not easily treatable or prescribing incorrect medications.

Unfortunately, a misdiagnosis can also be deadly since the timing of medical treatment can be a major factor in successfully treating a condition.

02

Delayed Diagnosis

If a physician takes too long to determine the underlying cause of a patient’s symptoms, it may be too late to effectively treat them.

03

Errores quirúrgicos

There are many different reasons a surgical error can occur, such as:

  • Aftercare was inadequate
  • Medical equipment was left inside the patient
  • A surgical instrument was left inside a patient
  • A surgical instrument was not sterile
  • Avoidable damage occurs to tissues, nerves, or organs
  • Surgery was not necessary
  • The wrong procedure was performed

04

Failure to Treat

Failure to treat can occur when a patient is diagnosed but that diagnosis isn’t followed through on. This may include not providing the standard of care that’s required for a specific condition, not providing correct follow-up care, or discharging a patient too soon.

05

Lesiones al nacer

A medical malpractice claim can be filed against an OB/GYN for birth injuries, such as cephalohematoma, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injuries, nerve damage, and shoulder dystocia.

06

Errores de medicación

A medication error can occur if a doctor prescribes a medication that interacts with other prescription medications you take, your doctor orders the wrong medication, or the wrong dose is prescribed. Additionally, a pharmacist can also be held liable for a medication error, such as filling the prescription incorrectly with the wrong medication, wrong dosage, or incorrect dosing instructions.

07

Errores en la anestesia

An anesthesiologist or physician can be held liable if a mistake was made in the amount of anesthesia you received, if your vitals were not monitored as the anesthesia was administered, or if the equipment that was used to monitor your vitals was defective.

If you believe you suffered injuries due to medical malpractice, you will have two years from the date of the incident to file a lawsuit against the negligent party. If you fail to file a lawsuit by this deadline, your case may be dismissed and you will be unable to recover any compensation for your damages. At the Hines Law Firm, our medical malpractice lawyers will handle every aspect of your case, including filing your lawsuit within the statute of limitations.
