Medical Malpractice

Medical errors kill or injure thousands of patients a year. No matter how careless a medical provider has been, under the law, the value of the case depends on the injuries caused by that negligence.

Ellis Law (with our co-counsel) represents people who suffer serious permanent injuries as a result of the carelessness or negligence of doctors, hospitals, dentists and other medical care providers. Our attorneys have the knowledge, skill and resources to bring successful medical malpractice claims.

How We Obtain Compensation For Those Seriously Injured By Medical Mistakes

Together with doctors, surgeons and other medical experts, we work hard to establish liability for injuries caused by incompetence. We prepare each medical malpractice case for trial from the very beginning, making sure to demonstrate as completely as possible the full effect of a serious injury on our client and his or her family.

What Types Of Medical Malpractice Are Common?

Carelessness might cause an injury or make an existing injury worse. In other cases, a doctor could fail to diagnose an illness or fail to diagnose it quickly enough. Other examples include:

  • Surgical and postoperative errors — Spinal cord injury caused by accidentally severing a nerve or failure to adequately monitor care after a procedure
  • Emergency room issues — Infection or sepsis caused by delayed or negligent care
  • Birth injury — Cerebral palsy caused by lack of oxygen
  • Misdiagnosis and failed or delayed diagnosis — Incorrectly reading X-rays or MRI or CT scans might mean that cancer, heart attacks, meningitis or strokes are not caught
  • Anesthesia errors or prescription mistakes — Failure to take into account patient-specific information or drug interactions

Doctors, nurses, chiropractors, dentists, podiatrists and hospital staff may all be involved in cases of medical malpractice.

Proving A Case: The Necessity Of Medical Experts

An injured patient must present testimony from medical experts during trial to show that the defendant acted negligently. Court costs, stenographer’s fees and the unbelievably high costs of these expert witnesses make medical malpractice cases extremely expensive. We know of several doctors who charge $5,000 to $12,000 per day for any part of a day to testify!

Unless a serious, permanent injury is involved, it may become difficult to recover enough money to pay case expenses and legal fees. We do not feel it is fair to you to bring a case that might cover only these fees and leave little or nothing for you. Thus, in fairness to you, we can represent you for a medical malpractice claim only if you have suffered a severe, permanent injury.
