Individuals who feel they may be a victim of medical malpractice want the best legal help they can get. But, no one can quite understand the medical field like healthcare professionals and doctors can. So, what if you could get legal representation from a doctor? At our law firm, you can. Our elite team of attorneys are doctors-turned-lawyers who know the medical industry first-hand. We typically handle cerebral palsy claim cases at our location in Baltimore, MD, but we also are legal experts in representing other forms of medical malpractice.
Although our main concentration is in birth injuries, we provide legal help for all types of medical malpractice suits. Recently, we have found ourselves working on a couple of cancer-related medical malpractice cases that call for a lawsuit. These particular situations do not involve the typical error of misdiagnosis, but rather, the treatment of cancer patients.
In one case we are working on, the cancer patient was accidentally burned internally during radiation treatment. The patient was given too much radiation, which resulted in damage to good tissue. Medical professionals are supposed to conduct radiation treatment in a way that kills the cancer without harming the rest of the body, but the process is tricky. Therefore, much care should be taken when performing radiation treatments.
In another case, a cancer patient came into the emergency room seeking treatment for a fever. The hospital did not admit the patient, who wound up having an infection. Medical professionals are expected to treat cancer patients with close attention, being that they have a low immune system. With a low white blood cell count, it is harder for cancer patients to fight fevers, so hospital admittance is required to monitor and treat it.
It is life-altering to be diagnosed with cancer, but even more so when the medical staff fails to provide the best level of care for the patient. Proving that a mistake has been made at the fault of a medical professional can be a challenge, but we work extensively to investigate the account and collect substantial evidence. Our clients can expect to obtain legal representation that entails a strong and aggressive legal approach aimed at achieving the best possible outcome for each case.
We are passionate about helping our clients obtain the compensation they deserve. If you feel you may be a victim of medical malpractice, contact us to schedule a free consultation with a skilled birth defect attorney based in Baltimore, MD.
