Cases of medical malpractice represent one of the most difficult of all the types of negligence cases that form the basis for a personal injury lawsuit.  They are expensive, time consuming, and are very complicated, which is why it is important to have an experienced medical malpractice attorney help you. 

The attorneys at the Hudson medical malpractice law firm of Greenberg and Greenberg know that patients who have been victims of medical care that has fallen below the professional standard of care for a medical professional may suffer severe pain, emotional trauma, and even wrongful death. 

The knowledgeable Hudson medical malpractice attorneys will investigate potential medical malpractice claims.  Such investigation may include having medical specialists analyze medical records to evaluate potential cases and identifying medical negligence in addition to evidence that the medical error or omission resulted in the injury or wrongful death of the patient that was harmed.

A patient who alleges that a doctor committed medical malpractice will typically be required to provide the expert testimony of a medical professional with regards to the appropriate professional standard of care and the breach of that professional standard that is alleged.  

Medical malpractice can include a variety of errors or omissions by a doctor, including:

  • Anesthesia errors;
  • Birth injuries;
  • Emergency room errors;
  • Errors made by emergency room doctors;
  • Failure to diagnose;
  • Failure to schedule prompt testing or treatment;
  • Medication errors;
  • Mistakes in the type or dosage of medication prescribed; and
  • Surgical mistakes.

Victims of medical malpractice often do not know what went wrong but they do know that something does not seem right.  There are other times where the patient may not have any idea that they have been the victim of substandard medical care.  A Harvard University study found that 98,000 people every year do not realize that they have been the victim of medical malpractice.  Unfortunately, in these tragic cases, medical malpractice victims do not bring a medical malpractice lawsuit because they do not realize their serious injuries resulted from a medical mistake.

Life threatening medical conditions, painful surgery, substantial pain and suffering, and wrongful death can result when a doctor has made a serious medical error or omission.  Greenberg and Greenberg will analyze the facts of your case to determine any deviations from accepted professional medical standards of care and develop compelling evidence regarding the impact those errors had on long term health and well-being.

The litigation of medical malpractice cases is very costly and extremely complex.  Therefore, not every medical error justifies the commencement of a medical malpractice lawsuit.  Greenberg and Greenberg’s Hudson doctor negligence attorneys have over seven decades of combined experience in handling medical malpractice cases against physicians and other medical providers.
