Connecticut medical malpractice law is complex. Our experienced medical malpractice attorneys represent persons injured due to negligence and errors committed by those in the health care professions.
When you or a loved one is sick, injured, or otherwise in need of medical treatment, you put a special kind of trust in your doctors, surgeons, nurses, and other medical professionals. You trust that they will seriously and professionally work to help you as much as possible and avoid the kind of medical malpractice you might hear about.
Often, your medical professionals will do the best, most professional job, they can. But what happens if they fail you? What if a medical professional is negligent and puts your life, or your family member’s life, at risk? What if you are left with a serious permanent injury?
Medical malpractice takes place when a healthcare provider provides treatment that falls below the accepted standard of care in the medical community, and causes an injury or even the untimely death of the patient. In general, if a healthcare provider fails to act within the same standard of care as others with similar training, and this failure results in an injury or death, you might have a medical malpractice case.
Patients can be victims of medical malpractice in a variety of different ways. Below are just some examples of medical malpractice:
- Anesthesia Errors
- Emergency Room Errors
- Hospital Malpractice
- Medical Device Error
- Hospital Liability for Employees’ errors
- Post-Operative Negligence
- Misdiagnosis and Delayed Diagnosis
- Misreading of Radiology studies and Diagnostic Tests
- Error and neglect during surgical procedure
- Infections acquired at a medical facility
- Failure to Diagnose Heart Attack
