How Were You Hurt?
Medical malpractice covers many different types of cases involving the reckless or negligent behavior of doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other medical professionals. Common medical malpractice cases include:
- Misdiagnosis (including misdiagnosis of cancer)
- Delay of treatment (especially in crowded emergency rooms)
- Prescribing the wrong medication
- Surgical mistakes (including operating on the wrong patient or body part)
- Birth injuries (including cerebral palsy)
- Hospital infections (often due to unsanitary conditions)
Mistakes made by medical professionals can have serious, life-changing consequences. That's why it's critical that you take legal action right away. Otherwise, you might not receive all the compensation you rightfully deserve for your injury or illness.
We Understand the Complexity of Medical Malpractice Cases
If a doctor, surgeon or another medical professional in New Haven caused your injury, you have recourse under Connecticut law – but the law doesn’t make it easy. You need to demonstrate that a medical professional failed to meet standards of care and their negligence caused your injury. That requires evidence, including:
- Medical records, including prescription records, nurse’s notes, doctor’s notes and lab reports.
- Hospital inspection reports
- Testimony from medical experts – which can be challenging to obtain because many physicians don’t want to testify against a colleague.
Doctors, hospitals, and malpractice insurance companies often hire entire teams of defense attorneys. They start with the advantage, and you need to level the playing field. This is why you need an experienced New Haven medical malpractice lawyer on your side, standing up for your rights.
How We Can Help You
Doctors, surgeons and other health care professionals rarely admit when they have made a mistake. And even when they do acknowledge that errors occurred, the insurance companies and attorneys who represent these individuals or hospitals often do everything they can to make sure injury victims like you receive as little money as possible.
Other times, medical professionals or insurance companies try to downplay the severity of the injuries or illnesses caused by their mistakes. Or there may be disagreement over the total financial impact of such mistakes. Insurance companies only take into account the short-term costs of medical malpractice cases, ignoring the lifelong impact of such errors.
We think big at the Law Offices of Mark E. Salomone & Morelli. We focus on the long-term consequences of mistakes made by medical professionals. If you or a loved one can't work for the rest of your lives due to your illness or injury, you deserve to be fully compensated. Find out how our New Haven law firm can help you.
