When you trust a medical professional with your health, you don't expect that he can make things worse—much, much worse
What do you do when the people who are supposed to take the best care of you or a loved one fail at their jobs?
Medical malpractice is more common than you could ever imagine. In a 2013 study called "A New, Evidence-Based Estimate of Patient Harms Associated with Hospital Care" by John T. James, PhD., premature death associated with preventable harm to patients was over 400,000 per year. The number of people who have to live every day with their injuries is even higher.
Don't let your health care professional get away with the pain and suffering he has caused; fight for the compensation and justice you deserve for the injuries you have sustained, or for your loved one who had their life cruelly taken away. In a medical malpractice lawsuit, you can win compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages and diminished future earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship
- Permanent catastrophic injuries or disabilities, including scarring
- Wrongful death
Catastrophic Injuries and Wrongful Death Due to Medical Malpractice
At Bartinik Law Firm, P.C., we are very selective about the medical malpractice cases we accept. We strive to fight for individuals who have endured very serious injuries and have the most to gain from winning a Connecticut medical malpractice suit. We also work with families who have lost their loved ones due to the negligence of a medical professional.
With the range of health care professionals out there, from obstetricians in private practice, to surgeons in large hospitals, and to nurses at retirement homes, medical malpractice can take many different forms. You may have a medical malpractice lawsuit if you or a loved one has been faced with one of the following situations:
- A surgeon left tools or equipment—like sponges or clamps—in your body after surgery
- Birth injuries, including nerve damage, fractures, and brain damage
- Medication errors and incorrectly filled prescriptions
- Failure to diagnose cancer, or a cancer misdiagnosis
- Operating on the wrong body part or on the wrong side of the body
- Misreading an abnormal pap smear
If you know negligent medical professionals caused your life-changing injury, it's time to fight back and let them know they will be held accountable for their errors.
