Chicago and Dallas/Ft. Worth Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death in the United States, behind heart disease and cancer. This may come as a shock to many, but those who have received poor care or been injured because of a healthcare professional, understand just how life-changing this can be. When we are sick or need medical attention, we trust doctors, surgeons, nurses, and other medical personnel to administer the right treatment in a responsible manner. When this does not happen, and we are injured as a result, it can be devastating. Medical malpractice (also referred to as medical negligence) often results in serious injury or loss of life.
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor does something to a patient that another responsible doctor would not do, or when a doctor fails to follow proper procedures for treating a patient. The medical malpractice lawyers at Toro Law understand how stressful these types of situations can be, which is why we are dedicated to helping you recover damages for your losses. If you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice in Illinois or Texas, please contact Toro Law today. We are fluent in English and Spanish and are prepared to help you pursue a medical malpractice suit today.
Understanding Medical Malpractice
When a medical professional fails you because of negligence and puts your life, or your loved one’s life at risk, they need to be held accountable. Unfortunately, cases of medical malpractice are occurring at an alarming rate in the United States. Patients can be victims of medical malpractice in many ways. Some of the most common types of medical malpractice that we see include:
- Refusal to administer treatment
- Plastic surgery errors
- Nursing errors
- Pharmacy errors
- Failure to diagnose
- Brain damage to infants
- A surgical or anesthesia-related mistake made during an operation
- Nursing home abuse
- Prescription Errors
- Failure to get consent
- Wrongful amputation
- Misuse of prescription drugs, a medical device, or an implant
At Toro Law, we have years of experience representing clients in these types of situations. We understand how shocking it can be to go to the doctor or the hospital for care, only to leave with more serious injuries. No one wants to entrust their health and wellbeing to a medical expert who will not give them the care they need. To learn more about how we can help you with a medical malpractice claim, contact experienced medical malpractice attorney Moises Briseño and Associates at Toro Law immediately to schedule a consultation to discuss your case. Most doctors and other healthcare professionals are capable, caring, and compassionate individuals who will do everything in their power to ensure the health of their patients. However, medical mistakes happen and usually come with devastating consequences. Patients are often the innocent victims of these mistakes, which is the devastating part.
