Negligence on the part of doctors and other healthcare professionals can cause devastating injuries. When placing your health in the hands of a trained medical professional or hospital, it is reasonable to expect a high standard of care. With the right legal representation, victims of medical malpractice can receive substantial compensation. Woomer & Talarico’s record of results includes an $8.9 million verdict for a neurology patient, and many other significant recoveries.
Sadly, many elderly residents can suffer from negligence and abuse at nursing homes. If you have a loved one who was abused or neglected in any way while in an assisted living facility, the attorneys at Woomer & Talarico LLP can seek restitution for pain and suffering and ensure the liable parties are held responsible for their actions.
When a doctor fails to notice potential concerns or acts upon them negligently during child birth, it can result in Erb’s palsy (brachial plexus palsy), cerebral palsy, bone injuries, and brain damage. If your child suffered a birth injury because of a doctor’s negligence, our team of medical malpractice attorneys is here to help.
Delayed and Misdiagnosis
When a medical condition is misdiagnosed or a patient suffers as the result of a delay in diagnosis, a medical malpractice claim can help secure just compensation. In such cases, we will work to establish that another doctor of comparable experience could reasonably be expected to correctly diagnose your condition under similar circumstances.
If you experienced a drug overdose, or were prescribed drugs that reacted poorly with a pre-existing medication, our team of attorneys can help. When representing clients on medication error cases, we will work to prove that the type or level of medication you received was improperly prescribed and pursue financial restitution on your behalf.
Surgical errors can range from mild to severe, but in all cases, the negligent party can be held liable. If a doctor operated on the wrong limb, failed to provide an acceptable standard of care, or was generally negligent in his or her duties, we want to ensure that you are justly compensated.
It is your right as a patient to accept or deny treatment. When patients are unable to consent to treatment because they are incapacitated, a family member may be able to consent on their behalf. If you were provided treatment that you refused or did not consent to, we can help you recover compensation for physical and emotional trauma.
Nurses and caretakers must make an active effort to prevent bed sores from occurring when they know that a patient will be immobilized for an extended period of time. Any presence of bed sores can be grounds for a medical malpractice claim. If you were in the hospital for an extended period of time and suffered from bed sores, we can provide proper legal counsel.
Patients who are at risk of falling should be closely monitored while in the hospital, and assistive devices such as canes, walkers, or wheelchairs should be provided. When a patient falls and is injured because one or more medical professionals were negligent in their duties, the team at Woomer & Hall LLP can take legal action on his or her behalf.
