Medical Negligence

You expect medical staff to provide quality care to patients. When doctors, nurses, and other healthcare staff are negligent in the care they provide, patients can experience serious injuries and major illness. Some patients may even lose their lives to carelessness, which is a situation no family should have to face. When a medical professional who has taken an oath to “Do no harm” causes harm, you should not have to suffer financially. The experienced personal injury attorneys at Hinkle Law Offices, LLC., will fight for justice in your medical malpractice case.

Defining Terms: Medical Negligence & Medical Error

The legal definition of medical negligence is “improper, unskilled or negligent treatment of a patient by a physician, dentist, nurse, pharmacist or other healthcare professional.”

Medical error can be understood as a specific type of medical negligence as it entails a “preventable adverse effect” of improper treatment. Medical errors include:

  • Inaccurate diagnosis
  • Incomplete diagnosis
  • Inaccurate treatment
  • Improperly administered treatment

Injury or harm from medical negligence is not always evident immediately. Adverse effects and/or consequences of an inaccurate diagnosis may develop over time and require additional medical consultations to discover.

Fighting for Justice after Suffering Medical Negligence

Medical negligence may cause further physical harm. The stress of chronic pain and/or illness may cause emotional harm. Additional medical consultations and treatments to address medical error introduce financial burdens as well. You deserve compensation for all your suffering.
