Coral Springs Medical Malpractice Attorney
Doctors make a misdiagnosis of cancer, heart attack or stroke, leading to permanent disability or terminal illness before the mistake is discovered. Surgeons operate on the wrong patient or the wrong part of the body, or they leave medical instruments sewn up inside the body after surgery. Obstetrics physicians and nurses wait too long to perform a C-section or fail to monitor fetal health during labor, or they improperly apply forceps during delivery.
Far from being rare events, medical mistakes like these happen every day. Some go unnoticed, and others cause serious harm, including death. In fact, a recent study concluded that medical error is the third leading cause of death in the U.S. Patients and their families often don’t know their negative outcome was the result of medical error, and doctors and hospitals may actively try to cover up their mistakes and hide the facts.

Medical Malpractice Claims are Complex Cases
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, hospital or other healthcare provider or facility fails to provide the level of care which corresponds to accepted standards in the field. Proving that this failure occurred and that the doctor’s negligence caused the injury requires getting medical expert testimony to establish these facts.
