On Your Side After Medical Malpractice
Patients are asked to trust their medical teams to take care of them in a time of great stress and vulnerability. Often, without independent medical knowledge or a view to what is “behind the curtain” of medical practice, patients feel powerless when they sense that something may have gone wrong in their medical care. Taking steps toward legal action can be intimidating.
While most medical professionals do extraordinary work on a daily basis, mistakes do happen. When they do, it is important that the errors are addressed and any systemic issues are corrected. For the individual patient, it can be a long and challenging road to vindication.

Legal Representation In Cases Of Medical Error
Many kinds of medical mistakes can happen in a hospital or clinical setting. Among those that might give rise to a legal claim of negligence are:
- Surgery errors, such as operating on the wrong body part or leaving medical instruments in the body
- Medication errors, such as administering an incorrect drug or dose
- Nursing errors, such as inaccurate charting or inadequate patient monitoring
- Birth injury, such as cerebral palsy, brachial plexus injury or infant brain damage
Your specific circumstances or those of a loved one may not fall into these categories. They may nonetheless deserve attention from a lawyer. Alam Law Firm can help you assess your options and act on your behalf if a legal claim is appropriate.
