Pursuing Claims for Medical Mistakes

Through more than two decades of experience, medical malpractice lawyer Tony Tramontana has gained significant insight into how to analyze potential medical mistake cases. He knows what to look for, how to read medical records, and which questions to ask to ensure he quickly gets to the bottom of each case. He has built a strong network of experts to call on when reviewing potential cases, and when building strong cases against negligent hospitals, nursing homes, and medical practitioners.

Tony knows that medical issues and malpractice cases can be complex and hard to understand, which is why he takes the time to thoroughly explain each case while removing the medical and legal jargon. No matter what type of malpractice occurred, Tony goes the extra mile to make sure the client understands throughout each step along the way.

Handling All Claims Involving Medical Errors

Medical mistakes arise out of a variety of situations, some of which include:

  • Anesthesia errors, including overdose, lack of oxygen and avoidable allergic relations
  • Surgical errors, including wrong site surgery, performing unnecessary surgery and leaving objects behind after surgery
  • Labor and delivery errors, including birth injuries, shoulder dystocia and failure to timely perform cesarean section surgery errors
  • Prescription medication errors, including prescribing the wrong drug or administering the wrong dosage
  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis errors, including failure to recognize a dangerous ongoing condition by your primary care provider, such as cancer or a deadly heart condition, or a misdiagnosis or failure to recognize dangerous conditions upon presentation to a hospital emergency room, or even while being treated in the hospital
  • Supervision errors, including allowing unsupervised and weak and often highly medicated patients to fall in hospitals

If you have suffered an injury due to a medical error listed above, or any other error for that matter, turn to our dedicated, experienced law firm for help. We also work closely with family members who have lost loved ones due to doctor mistakes.

The Role of Guilt in Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

We’ve seen it time and time again. Our clients come into our office with a huge weight of guilt on their shoulders. It may be guilt for not taking a loved one to a different hospital or for not speaking out loudly enough about the concerns noticed from improper care. It may even be guilt for considering a lawsuit because you may not like to be confrontational.

We can tell you that we understand and will work with you to get through this emotional hurdle to focus on the issue at hand. You or a family member have been hurt or harmed and may need help recovering lost wages or medical expenses. In the event that a loved one was lost; you may need help covering final expenses or in creating a financial safety net for the loved one’s family.

Medical Mistakes Happen – Get Help When They Happen to You

The truth of the matter is that mistakes happen. We are all only human. If you run a stop sign, it doesn’t make you a bad driver or a bad person, you just made a mistake. If that resulted in an accident, it was just that: an accident. Insurance is there to help to help in these types of situations to help pay for damages that may have occurred.

The same situation holds true for doctors: medical mistakes happen. That is why malpractice insurance exists – to make sure that when those mistakes happen, there is an avenue for injured individuals to pursue justice and compensation. There is a system set in place for this scenario, and we can help in making sure this system works for you to obtain proper compensation.
