  • Improper use of anesthesia
  • Lack of oxygen during medical procedure
  • Delayed treatment or failure to diagnose a medical condition
  • Injury sustained during childbirth due to medical staff

How an Attorney Can Help

Malpractice lawsuits are tricky, and having an experienced attorney helps immensely. A Morgan & Morgan attorney will undergo a thorough investigation to prove the following four necessities to winning any medical malpractice lawsuit:

  • The defendant owed a duty or care to the injured person. Doctors have a duty to provide their patients with a certain level of care, so as to prevent harm.
  • The defendant breached this duty of care.
  • The patient was injured as a direct result of the breach.
  • The patient suffered damages, such as medical bills, physical pain and suffering and lost wages, due to their injury.

An attorney can also help determine how much you’re owed for these damages.
