Holding Negligent Doctors And Nurses Accountable
Medical malpractice may arise when a patient suffers injury or death because of a mistake made by a doctor, nurse, hospital or other health care professional. The mistake may have been caused by carelessness or negligence.
Common medical malpractice issues include treatment resulting in birth trauma (injury to infant or mother), infant brain injury or cerebral palsy; the failure to diagnose and/or properly treat cancer, heart attacks, strokes or infections; and surgical procedures resulting in unexpected complications or injuries. Almost all medical malpractice cases will require the attorney to review your medical records.
You have a legal right to view and request a copy of your medical records. It is helpful, but not required, if you bring your medical records along when you meet with an attorney. Even if you are not sure your case is strong enough to go to trial, an experienced attorney may see potential where you may not. Two of our attorneys, Nick Stein and Steve Meyer, have more than 30 years’ experience working with medical malpractice cases.
Surgical Mishaps can be Deadly
Even a minor surgery can lead to stress, worry and concern for the future. Patients are worried about the skill of their surgical staff as well as the procedure itself. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for inattention or poor training to lead to mistakes and injuries. At our firm, Stein Law, we are prepared to represent clients in Indiana and communities in Kentucky.
With more than a half-century of combined legal experience, our Floyd County medical negligence attorneys can answer your complex questions and provide the guidance you need to get through the legal process. We understand that a surgical error can have devastating, potentially life-threatening results. Surgical Errors can Include:
- Sponges and other surgical instruments left in the body
- Nicking a vein or artery
- Bowel Perforation
- Removing the wrong organ
- Amputating the wrong limb
- Introducing infection during a surgery
- Use of faulty or defective medical devices
- Failure to monitor vital signs during the surgery
- Errors in anesthesia or post-operative medication
- Failure to recognize complications during post-operative care
Birth trauma can be as legally complex as it is emotionally devastating. If you were injured during childbirth, a skilled lawyer can examine your case and suggest a course of action that ensures your financial well-being and holds those responsible for your injuries accountable for their actions. At Stein Law, our New Albany birth injury lawyers are ready to fight by your side.
Birth injuries can be devastating and impact the lives of the entire family. From offices in New Albany, our firm is prepared to represent clients in New Albany and communities throughout Indiana in a wide range of legal matters, including those involving:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Facial Nerve Palsy
- Shoulder Dystocia
- Forcep Injuries
- Vacuum Extraction Injuries
Unfortunately, birth trauma can be caused during prenatal care, labor or delivery. Doctors and nurses must remain vigilant in monitoring vital signs and possible problems. In fact, failure to recognize fetal distress is a common thread among birth injury cases. If a medical professional does not recognize that the fetus is suffering, it might lead to widespread injuries or even death. The staff’s inaction or inattention can lead to dangerous situations. We can handle cases centering on:
- Failure to monitor fetal distress
- Breech presentation
- Abnormal birth position
- Prolonged delivery
