Medical Malpractice

Minnesota & Nebraska Medical Malpractice Lawyers

brain injuryWhen patients do not receive the quality care that they deserve from the doctors, nurses, and other medical staff at a nursing home, the results can be devastating. Very serious and even fatal injuries can come about and that leads to medical expenses and other costs that were never the fault of the victim.

If you or a loved one has been injured or made very ill in a nursing home due to medical malpractice by a doctor, nurse, or other staff member, it is your right to fight against the negligence with the help of an experienced medical malpractice lawyer.

Aggressively Pursuing The Compensation You Deserve

There are different types of medical malpractice that can occur. They include:

  • Medical errors
  • Surgical errors
  • Birth injuries
  • Pharmacy errors
  • Failure to diagnose a serious or fatal condition
  • And many other types of physician, hospital, and nurse errors

An error can cause long-term injury or it can be fatal. This is why it is important that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible. If you were injured, you most likely have medical bills that you are being charged for rather than them being charged to the responsible parties. You have also most likely lost time from work and accrued other expenses. You can get all this back and more for your long-term expenses so you don’t have to worry about the financial impact of an act that was not your fault.

A 75-Year History Working For You

Medical malpractice claims are difficult and there are many aspects to them. It is the paperwork and the intricate details that contribute to their complexity. For a plaintiff to win in a medical malpractice case, he or she must show that the doctor or other medical staff member did not provide the services they were supposed to and with an accepted standard of care. Even in cases where the medical professional has not provided optimal care, plaintiffs are not always guaranteed the recovery of compensation.
