Medical Malpractice

A recent federal government report estimated that upwards of 100,000 people die annually as a result of medical negligence. Whether a doctor, nurse, hospital, dentist, or chiropractor has been negligent is usually a question to be resolved by other expert doctors. It is difficult and expensive to litigate medical malpractice cases. As a result, only the most obvious examples of neglect with substantial permanent injuries are successful. The medical malpractice attorneys of Monsees & Mayer P.C. aggressively represent clients injured by incompetent doctors, or mistakes made by medical professionals.

Our medical malpractice attorneys have pursued claims for birth injuries (such as cerebral palsy, oxygen deprivation, and shoulder dystocia), surgical error (such as severed or punctured vessels, organs or bowel), medication or drug mistakes (such as drug interactions, overdoses, unrecognized drug allergies or improper drugs), failures to diagnose diseases or injuries (such as cancer, heart attacks, bowel injuries, stroke, or bleeding), delayed treatment and defective medical devices.

While no professional can guarantee results, each profession has recognized standards of care that may result in a malpractice claim if breached. If you have suffered significant damages as a result of medical malpractice, we will review your claim to see if the standard of care was violated.

All cases have time limits called “statutes of limitation” that set deadlines for filing lawsuits. The time limits vary depending on the state and type of claim you are pursuing. There are also exceptions that may either lengthen or shorten the time permitted to file a lawsuit. Only a lawyer can properly interpret and apply the proper time limit to your case.
