Northwest Indiana defenders looking out for your best interests when the medical profession fails you
We depend on doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals to care for us when we are sick or injured. We entrust them with our very lives. Most of the time, that trust is well placed, but occasionally doctors and other healthcare providers make mistakes that seriously injure or even kill their patients.
Medical professionals and healthcare providers must follow established standards of care when treating patients. Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional violates an established standard of care. They either fail to take necessary action or take the wrong action. The result can be injury or death.
A simple mistake is not enough to constitute medical malpractice or hospital negligence. A death or injury caused by the failure to provide reasonably appropriate or common standards of care or the failure to diagnose an easily detectable illness may be malpractice.
Our medical malpractice attorneys aggressively investigate and pursue claims for catastrophic injuries and death arising out of:
- Birth trauma
- Failure to diagnose cancer/other diseases
- Surgical errors
- Inappropriate/dangerous treatment practices
- Pharmaceutical injuries/prescription drug errors
- Psychiatric/mental health malpractice/negligence
- Nursing home negligence
The legal remedies can include:
- Monetary damages for future medical care and treatment
- Lost wages
- Lost future earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Anticipated earnings until the time of retirement for the deceased
- Medical bills
- Funeral costs
- Other related expenses
If you or a loved one is a victim of medical malpractice or hospital negligence, please do not hesitate to contact Allen Law Offices to arrange a consultation and case evaluation.
