At Webb & D'Orazio, we have over 60 years experience handling medical malpractice cases. Serious injuries such as stroke, paralysis, physical deformities, loss of organ function and death occur more often than they should as a result of medical negligence. Sometimes it is due to the lack of care and attention of a physician and sometimes it is due to mistakes of a hospital and its’ nursing staff. In recent years, because of a shortage of properly trained nurses, we have seen more and more cases that have resulted from inattention by the nursing staff.
Most medical malpractice cases require evaluation and assessment by an independent physician who is willing to review your records. Failure to diagnose, misdiagnosis, injuries caused during surgery or while recuperating in the hospital after surgery are examples of circumstances that usually require a review by an independent physician. Call us and we will arrange for that evaluation.
Some types of malpractice do not require a physician’s opinion. For example if your doctor fails to inform you of the material risks of a surgical procedure and you suffer an injury from the procedure then you have a claim for battery against the doctor entitling you to compensatory damages and punitive damages.
