Medical Errors

Any number of errors can occur while under the care of a medical professional. At Marcotte Law Firm, our attorneys handle many medical malpractice-related cases, including:

  • Failure to diagnose - When a medical condition is not diagnosed, such as cancer, it can cause symptoms to worsen. Many times, failure to diagnose can cause a condition to progress beyond what can be fixed by medicine.
  • Delayed diagnosis - When a condition isn't diagnosed on time, it can progress and worsen. Early detection of cancer and other serious diseases can be crucial to successful treatment and patient survival.
  • Misdiagnosis - When a condition is wrongly diagnosed as another condition. Certain types of cancer, heart conditions, and diabetes are often misdiagnosed.
  • Medication errors - Administration of incorrect medication or medication overdoses. Inaccurately combining medications is another dangerous medication error.
  • Surgical errors - Failure to recognize or respond to surgical complications, leaving foreign objects inside of body following surgery, or accidentally nicking other organs during surgery.
  • Birth injuries - Including brain damage, cerebral palsy, and injuries caused by vacuums or forceps. Failure to perform a C-section can also result in birth injuries.

Our attorneys have the experience and knowledge necessary to handle your case in or out of court - whatever will serve your best interests.
