Doctors, nurses and other medical professionals have a legal duty to provide a level of care consistent with the standard provided by competent practitioners in their field. When they fail to do so, a worsened medical condition or even death can be the result. Our Eastern Montana law firm can help victims of medical malpractice and their families recover the compensation they need to get their lives back together.
Medical malpractice can take many forms. In some cases a failure to diagnose cancer or another illness in time can lead to a preventable worsening of the condition. An anesthesia error can cause a patient to suffer brain damage or other serious injury. Although hospitals have procedures in place to prevent wrong-site surgery incidents, they still occur and the results can be tragic. Birth injuries can result in life-long complications.
Victims of medical malpractice have the right to bring a lawsuit against the medical professionals and the institutions that caused them injury. Damages can be sought for medical expenses, lost income, scarring, disfigurement, pain and suffering and other losses. In cases involving fatal medical error, the victim’s family can bring a wrongful death lawsuit and seek compensation for their loss.
