Fighting For Your Rights After Medical Negligence

Everyone has a right to high-level medical care. When medical professionals do not adhere to the standard of care of the profession, they should be held accountable for any injuries they cause. Yet, medical professionals and facilities have teams of experienced lawyers working hard to save their licenses. You need the same kind of care and attention on your side of the case.

At Richin & Gaines, P.A., our attorneys have over 60 years of combined experience helping people navigate challenging medical malpractice claims. We combine the technical knowledge and trial experience necessary for medical malpractice lawsuits with a passion for offering the close support our clients need.

Examples Of Serious Medical Malpractice

Below are a few examples of the types of things that can result in a medical malpractice claim:

  • Surgical Errors: This can range from surgical instruments left inside patients to wrong-site surgery, where the procedure is carried out on the wrong body part.
  • Delayed Diagnosis: With ailments like cancer, which grow progressively worse, any delay can mean an illness turns fatal when it should have been treatable. Even if it doesn’t become fatal, the time and cost of treatment can increase dramatically. We also handle failure to diagnose claims.
  • Misdiagnosis: This can result in days, weeks or months of treatment for the wrong ailment, resulting in unwanted side effects while the real issues grow worse.
  • Pharmaceutical Errors: These errors include giving patients the wrong medications, giving them the wrong doses, administering the medications at the wrong time or giving patients medications to which they are allergic.

These are just a few examples. Medical malpractice is complex and can take many forms. Our attorneys can evaluate and negotiate your claim for you and make sure you are treated fairly.
