Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice claims happen when a person is seriously harmed by the actions or negligence of a medical professional. Medical malpractice is not just limited to doctors, nurses, surgeons or other medical professionals, but hospitals and clinics may be held responsible as well. Medical malpractice goes beyond the realm of a mistake (although a mistake surely is malpractice), it can also include failure to diagnose a serious health condition as well as negligence.
Medical malpractice cases include:

• Missed diagnosis

• Lack of informed consent

• Surgical injuries

• Improperly prescribed medication

• Anesthesia errors

• Nursing home abuse

• Patient Neglect

Injuries from medical malpractice can affect a victim for a lifetime, with often permanent damage. If you’ve been a victim of medical malpractice, call the Law Offices of Dussault & Gomes, PC today.
