Every year, nearly 100,000 people suffer injuries, or even die, as a result of medical malpractice. That’s nearly 50% more people than are injured or killed in car accidents.
Medical malpractice occurs anytime a healthcare professional’s actions or inactions cause an injury or death. Examples of medical malpractice are failure to diagnose a condition or disease, surgical errors, and birth injuries like cerebral palsy and Erb’s palsy. Failure to diagnose or maintain a standard of care may lead to wrongful death in certain cases.
Any healthcare professional in any healthcare setting could potentially be responsible for your medical malpractice injury, including primary care physicians, surgeons, pediatric nurses, hospitals, health clinics, dentists, anesthesiologists, et al. Many times, in order to get all the medical records and facts, you need aggressive legal representation. As a medical malpractice lawyer in Louisville, I will evaluate your claim and help you recover compensation from the healthcare professional that injured you or your family member.
