Medication errors: Pharmacists, physicians and others involved in dispensing and providing medication must take great care in their duties. When these parties fail, the results can be catastrophic.

Anesthesia errors: Whenever a patient "goes under" in surgery, it is vital that anesthesiologists and other professionals closely monitor the patient. Failure to do so can result in significant harm. Our lawyers hold these negligent medical professionals accountable for their failures.

  • Allergic reactions to local anesthetic
  • Failure to monitor vital signs
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Hypoxia
  • Anaphylactic shock
  • Insufficient anesthesia

Hospital negligence: Hospitals owe a duty to every patient who presents for their care. When hospitals do not live up to that responsibility, patients are the ones to suffer. All too often, patients suffer infections or other serious injury due to hospital neglect. Our law firm takes on these facilities for their negligence.

  • Equipment failure
  • Mismanagement of cellulitis
  • Sepsis
  • Emergency room errors
  • Recovery room errors
  • Failure to monitor and supervise
