Compensation For Medical Negligence
Most victims of medical negligence or malpractice don’t know what to do. First of all, it’s difficult to tell if your illnesses or injuries were really caused by your doctor and not some other factors. And even if you are sure that your medical team was responsible, it is intimidating to go up against a major hospital or medical facility in a legal case.
We can help. At Schad & Schad, P.C. in New Albany, our lawyers have decades of experience helping southern Indiana clients obtain compensation for all types of injuries and losses resulting from the negligence of others, including doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other medical professionals. We will fight for you.
Three Main Areas Of Medical Malpractice
We represent clients in three major areas of medical malpractice claims, including:
There are numerous things that can go wrong during the surgery. Common cases involve anesthesia errors (wrong dosages, allergic reactions, etc.), operating on the body part, leaving medical instruments in the body after surgery and other similar errors.
The medical team overseeing the birthing process is held to a particularly high standard. Errors can occur when the nurses and assistants fail to monitor the child’s breathing and heart rate; when doctors fail to perform emergency cesarean section surgeries; when doctors use forceps and vacuum technology that can seriously injure children; and when doctors fail to get the child out of the mother’s womb in a way that prevents Erb’s palsy or other lifelong medical complications. Many other errors can occur in the birthing process, leaving children or their mothers seriously injured for life.
Medication is an extremely complicated science, and there are many steps in the process in which dangerous errors can be made. Doctors prescribe dangerous medications or medications in dangerous dosages. The transfer of the information to the pharmacy can get mixed up. Pharmacists can make errors in fulfilling the prescription. All of these and other errors in the process can be extremely dangerous or deadly.
These are just a few of the most common examples of medical malpractice cases we take on for our clients in southern Indiana. If any issues arise from your medical care, you might have a case. For years, our clients have trusted our legal counsel and advocacy. We can help you determine if you have a viable case, and we can help you obtain maximum compensation.
