Trusted representation for a variety of medical malpractice cases
To determine the type of medical malpractice case you have, your attorney from The Law Offices of Craig L. Cook must first examine the nature of your injury and its cause. There are many kinds of medical malpractice, but a few are most common:
- Misdiagnosis. In a misdiagnosis case, the doctor incorrectly diagnoses you with an injury or illness that you do not actually have. The dangers for a misdiagnosis are twofold — you fail to receive the proper treatment for your actual condition and you receive treatment for a condition that you do not have. Both can pose major medical risks.
- Failure to diagnose. In this case, the doctor fails to recognize your symptoms and does not make any diagnosis at all, meaning you go without the valuable treatment you need to make a full recovery.
- Medication and prescription errors. A doctor could prescribe you the wrong medication, give an incorrect dosage for your condition or make any other kind of error concerning your medication that puts you at risk.
- Surgery errors. Many surgical error cases are a result of doctors leaving surgical equipment inside of the body or making improper, dangerous incisions. These errors are extremely dangerous and are usually due to negligence on the part of the attending surgeon.
In all medical malpractice cases, we aim to obtain compensation for your injury and secure punitive damages against the physician or other medical professional.
