Charleston Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Holding Negligent Medical Professionals Accountable in West Virginia
We all entrust our lives and the lives of our loved ones to medical providers and staff at hospitals, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities. Additionally, there is an expectation that those who provide medical treatment and long-term care are properly trained and qualified.
While there are "no guarantees" in the practice of medicine, proper care should never be compromised given the catastrophic consequences that may result when malpractice occurs. If you or a loved one suffers injury, illness, neglect, or abuse from a medical care provider, your losses can be physically, emotionally, and financially catastrophic. Turn to a skilled Charleston medical malpractice attorney for help.
Common Causes of Medical Malpractice & Neglect
There are numerous causes of malpractice that share the potential for harsh consequences and injuries.
Medical negligence cases can include:
- Surgical errors and leaving tools in body parts
- Birth injuries
- Emergency room errors
- Medication errors
- Anesthesia errors
- Missed or delayed diagnosis
- Slips, trips, and falls
- Intubation errors
Proving a Medical Malpractice Claim
Claims involving medical malpractice and negligence are typically very complex and difficult to litigate. It is important that you work with an attorney who understands the intricacies of medical injuries and has experience presenting such cases in front of a jury.
In order to file a medical malpractice claim, you must be able to show:
- There existed a doctor-patient relationship
- The doctor who treated you acted in negligence
- The negligence of the doctor caused serious injuries and losses
Whether a physician, radiologist, anesthesiologist, nurse, hospital, or medical staff failed to provide you with reasonable care, discuss your case with an attorney. Your attorney will need to review medical records and work with medical experts to help identify whether malpractice played a role in your injuries.
