Types of Medical Malpractice Cases We Handle
The law recognizes that the practice of medicine is difficult and complicated. Sometimes there are tragic outcomes from a medical emergency and it's not anyone's fault. Put simply, an injury or even a death after a medical procedure is not, by itself, evidence of medical malpractice.
Instead, the medical malpractice law in Arkansas (and across the country) revolves around the concept of standards of care. A standard of care is simply a diagnosis or treatment that a reasonable medical professional can be expected to follow in a specific situation. If a doctor or other medical professional fails to live up to a standard of care and a patient suffers an injury as a result, there is possibly a medical malpractice case.
Our experienced medical malpractice lawyers know how to evaluate the viability of your claim and will always give you advice and counsel that is in your best interests. We have helped clients pursue medical malpractice cases related to:
- Prescription or medication errors
- Failure to diagnose and wrong diagnosis claims
- Medical malpractice in nursing homes
- Anesthesia errors
- Surgical errors, including wrong side/wrong site surgeries
This is not an exhaustive list, of course, but it does provide a clear sense of just how much experience our firm has in medical malpractice litigation.
