Whether a result of a mistake during surgery, a misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose, medical malpractice can lead to seriously debilitating and long-term injuries. Another form of malpractice may involve neglect or abuse of a patient at a nursing home. When your suffering was preventable or caused by an avoidable mistake, you want to speak with an experienced attorney. If your loved one has died as a result of a surgeon’s negligence, we will protect your financial interests in a wrongful death suit while you tend to your emotional needs and healing.
If you have been injured by the negligence of a doctor or other medical professional, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages. Speak with an experienced medical malpractice attorney to discuss your potential claim.
Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
It is a tragic fact that some nursing home operators currently accept payments from Medicare or private insurance while not providing the resident care they claim. This can be done in a number of ways; you may suspect that your parent’s facility:
- Has fewer aides for the care of residents than the law requires
- Does not pay the aides properly, resulting in inadequate care for residents
- Does not perform background checks on aides to determine if they have a history of committing abuse
- Does not actually administer prescribed medications to residents and patients
Nursing home abuse and neglect can have serious health consequences for residents, including malnutrition and dehydration, hygiene problems, bruises or broken bones, gangrene and bedsores or pressure sores. Contact an attorney immediately if you or a loved one is suffering from any of these problems as a result of nursing home mistreatment.
Medical Malpractice in Surgery
One form of medical malpractice occurs in surgery when a surgeon cuts or injures a patient and then attempts to cover up the mistake. We have also demanded compensation for many clients after their surgeon failed to perform adequate follow up and ensure safe and healthy recovery post-surgery.
The law office of Chris Villemarette, Trial Lawyer, also represents families who have lost a loved one to medical malpractice. We provide supportive counsel and aggressive advocacy to help you recover compensation for lost income, medical bills and pain and suffering.
We also represent parents whose babies have suffered avoidable birth injuries, and husbands whose wives suffered avoidable injuries during the birthing process.
