Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice injuries are often caused by hospitals cutting back on nursing staff and doctors. As a result, care providers are often stretched to the limit, even while administrative staffs at hospitals are growing. When the doctor is not there to attend to a birthing mother or when a patient’s condition is not monitored because the nurse was taking care of another patient, the results can be severe birth injuries, surgical complications, and even wrongful death.

The medical malpractice lawyers of Law Office of Mayer Gordon are very tenacious in helping victims recover maximum compensation for medical injuries caused by:

  • Misdiagnosis an illness such as cancer
  • Failure to treat an illness on a timely basis
  • Failure to order tests
  • Failure to consult a specialist
  • Failure to monitor or stabilize a patient
  • Improper administration of anesthesia (which can cause brain injury by reducing available oxygen, or halting blood flow to the brain entirely)
  • Surgical errors
