Oklahoma Medical Malpractice
We place a great deal of faith in the doctors, nurses and other medical professionals who provide the care we need. When they fail to provide care that meets the accepted standards for care and people are injured, they need to be held accountable for medical malpractice.
We assist people in pursuing compensation for all types of medical malpractice, including:
- Birth injuries — There are many ways the birth of a child can become dangerous for the child and the mother. Any errors can cause permanent injuries or death.
- Failure to diagnose — Effective medical care requires accurate and timely diagnosis of the condition being treated.
- Wrong site surgery — Too often mistakes can lead to surgery being done on the wrong part of the body or even the wrong patient.
- Foreign object left behind — Surgical gauze, instruments and other materials left inside a person after surgery can cause serious health issues and, at a minimum require additional surgery to remove.
- Nicked or perforated blood vessels or organs — Surgeons must be especially careful to not inadvertently cut an organ or blood vessel during surgery. Failing to correct such mistakes during surgery can lead to internal bleeding, infection and other serious issues.
- Emergency room errors — It is all too easy in an emergency room for critical errors to be made.
- Medication errors — Wrong dose, administering the wrong medication, failing to check for negative medication interactions are just a few of the potentially deadly medication errors that can be made.
- Nursing home errors — Nursing homes provide a great deal of medical care. When they fail to properly carry out their duties, vulnerable seniors are put at risk.
