When Is It Medical Malpractice?
Medical professionals are expected to follow specific protocols in diagnosing and treating patients. When they take shortcuts or deviate from the accepted standard of care, causing lasting injury or fatality, it may constitute professional negligence. Examples of medical malpractice include:
- Injuries to the baby or mother during childbirth
- Surgery and anesthesia mistakes
- Delayed diagnose of cancer
- Failure to diagnose a life-threatening condition like a heart attack or stroke
- Misdiagnosis resulting in harmful treatment
- Medication errors
A Former Defense Lawyer Helping You Get Justice
Earlier in his career, founding attorney Andrew Chivinski worked at a large law firm where he defended corporate entities, including health care providers, against lawsuits. His experience in medical malpractice defense helps him ask the right questions when malpractice is suspected and anticipate the tactics of providers and their insurers. Mr. Chivinski’s trial experience on both sides of these cases works to your favor in settlement negotiations or in the courtroom.
