Dealing with an injury—or the death or injury of a loved one—is never easy. This is especially true when the cause of death or injury could have been avoided. Medical malpractice results in hundreds of thousands of deaths (and even more injuries) each year.
If you find yourself dealing with difficult circumstances due to medical malpractice in Miami Beach, you deserve to work with someone you can trust. Elstein Legal will work with you to hold those guilty of medical malpractice accountable so that you can gain the compensation you deserve.
What is a Medical Malpractice?
The term “medical malpractice” refers to instances when a health care provider or a health care professional neglects to provide required treatments, fails to take appropriate action, or provides lacking treatment resulting in injury or death. Cases of medical malpractice typically involve an instance of medical failure or error.
Examples of Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice can occur in a variety of forms. The following examples may be considered medical malpractice in Miami Beach:
- Errors during operating procedures (improper anesthesia, incorrect operations, equipment left within the body, etc.)
- Failure to administer necessary tests or failure to act on test results
- Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis
- Fatal or potentially fatal infections acquired while under medical care
- Incorrect or premature discharge from care
- Unnecessary surgery
If any of the following examples resonate with you and are indicative of your situation, you may be entitled to financial compensation. To save money, you may be interested in pursuing a medical malpractice case on your own. However, this may not be your best move.
Unfortunately, the legal landscape is filled with a slew of obstacles and can be difficult to navigate on your own. By pursuing legal representation from a Miami Beach medical malpractice attorney, we can ensure that the opposition’s legal teams won’t take advantage of you.
