After you fall victim to a medical error, you need to fight for compensation. Otherwise, you could end up paying thousands or millions of dollars in healthcare costs for someone else’s negligence.
Just like automobile or construction accidents, accidents can also happen when you go to a doctor, hospital or medical clinic. Medical malpractice is the term used when a doctor, nurse, hospital by it’s employees or other medical professional cause you harm during the course of your medical care and treatment. The medical professional can cause you harm by doing something they should not have done, such as when a surgeon causes injury to body parts that were not supposed to be a part of the surgery. Or, when doctors fail to do something that they should have done which resulted in the failure to timely diagnose and treat a medical condition such as cancer. At Siegel & Coonerty we handle all types of medical malpractice matters including surgical errors, mistakes, and injuries, gynecological errors and obstetrical misadventures during labor and delivery resulting in brain damage babies, cerebral palsy, and Erb’s palsy for example; failure to timely diagnose and treat all forms of medical conditions where a timely diagnosis may be the key to survival such as cancer cases and other medical conditions that require treatment such as impending or evolving heart attack and cardiac arrest, elevated blood pressure or hypertension, elevated blood sugar known as hyperglycemia, and many other medical malpractice failures and mistakes.
