We trust our doctors, health care providers, nurses and practitioners to provide us with proper diagnoses and treatments when we are ill or injured. The advances in medical science over the past 100 years have been significant. Unfortunately, there are medical personnel who are incompetent and whose ignorance or negligence can result in tragic consequences for trusting patients and loved ones. If this has happened to you or a loved one, please contact me, Marc Sedwick. I am a personal injury attorney who is committed to helping the seriously injured pursue claims for financial compensation when they are suffering from the negligence of others. At my firm, SedwickLaw, PC, I have helped many obtain their full awards in such cases, whether through successful negotiation or aggressive and effective litigation in court.
How Med Mal Occurs
Medical malpractice can come in many forms. Surgical errors can prevent recovery and cause further damage. Dangerous drugs improperly prescribed have often brought about wrongful death claims. Administering the wrong medication or wrong dosage or writing an illegible prescription can all be grounds for medical malpractice cases. Improper use of force during delivery can result in birth injuries to the child and, sometimes, the mother. Prescribing medication to the mother can sometimes harm the baby. Failing to correctly diagnose an illness, disease or injury can cause further harm to a patient.
There are many more examples. Laws exist to provide those injured by medical malpractice the right to pursue compensation for the wrongs committed. The laws covering this area are complex, and you will want a skilled and effective medical malpractice attorney to help you with your claim. At my firm, I am dedicated to those who have been seriously injured in medical malpractice cases. I stand ready to fight for your rights and full compensation through aggressive negotiation or effective litigation in court.
