Medical providers are held
accountable for injuries caused by negligence.
Just as all of us are expected to follow the rules of the road
when we operate our vehicles on the highway, so are doctors, nurses,
hospitals, and other healthcare providers required to follow the
rules of reasonable medical practice. When a medical provider
fails to meet the standard of reasonable care - runs a medical
red light - and causes serious injury, the law grants the patient
the right to receive compensation.
Medical malpractice cases
need the most skilled lawyer you can find.
Experience is the only way to acquire skill
as a trial lawyer.
Medical malpractice cases require the highest degree of skill
and experience on the part of the lawyer, who must first be able
to recognize and understand the medical issues, and make a preliminary
judgment about whether you may have a meritorious case that should
be investigated. Your lawyer must then have the resources to identify
and retain appropriate experts to consult with, since all medical
malpractice cases depend on the opinions of qualified, credible
medical experts who are willing to testify that the injury was
caused by medical negligence. Finally, your lawyer then must be
prepared to negotiate on your behalf with insurance companies
and defense lawyers, and when necessary, prepare your case for
courtroom presentation to a jury.
At Gaylord Eyerman Bradley, we have successfully represented clients
and their families in medical malpractice cases involving many different
medical procedures. These include errors during surgery, failing
to make the correct diagnosis leading to incorrect or delayed treatment,
improper prescribing or administering of medications, birth injuries,
and many others.
for an idea of the range of our experience in the field of medical
malpractice. Keep in mind that every case must be independently
analyzed; a seemingly minor detail can make the difference between
a viable case and a questionable claim.
