Medical Malpractice: What You Need To Know
When seeking medical attention, we put our trust in doctors and nurses to do the right thing. When that doesn’t happen, it can be life-changing. The team at Brooks & Baez work with clients both in Richmond and throughout Virginia who have dealt with medical malpractice claims. Our team works together to find the best possible solution, and we will do everything we can to advocate for your rights and hold the negligent party accountable.
Why Do Errors Happen And What Can You Do?
Medical errors are made for a variety of reasons, including:
- Lack of training
- Workplace distractions
These are among the most common, and they are troubling because the consequences can be so severe. If a medical professional makes a surgical error or distributes the wrong type of drug, the results can be catastrophic. In some cases, mistakes can lead to injuries that will last the rest of the individual’s life, such as birth injuries.
For this reason not only the individual healthcare worker, but even the hospital or facility at which they work can be held liable. And to that end, it’s important to know that it’s not just large, faceless hospitals where mistakes happen, but nursing home facilities, labor and delivery centers and wards, dental offices and any other place where a medical professional may dispense advice and care.
Our job as lawyers is to examine all areas of your case. In doing so, we can create a plan that is tailored specifically to you. We will always communicate our findings and what we think is the best way to move forward.
One of the reasons we are passionate about personal injury in general and this area in particular is that our ties run deep in the community. With years of experience and a compassionate approach, we are determined to advocate for those who need it most. Compensation can be used to cover your lost wages and find a new medical team. In some situations, ongoing care is now a necessity. For others, you may need rehabilitation treatment. Perhaps you need to address an issue that your previous doctor missed, resulting in more treatment. No matter what, our attorneys are here to help you through this.
