You Deserve Competent Medical Care
When an injury results from the negligence and substandard treatment of a physician, nurse or other medical professional, it is referred to as medical malpractice. A patient who is harmed due to medical malpractice has the right to pursue substantial compensation for his or her injuries, as well as pain and suffering and other related expenses.
Pursuing a medical malpractice case is not easy, and it takes an experienced law firm with substantial resources to effectively handle one. At the Michael C. Heyden Law Office, we have handled complex medical malpractice cases for clients throughout Delaware. We are very selective in the claims we pursue and take only cases that are justified and will benefit our clients.
Many Mishaps Result From Medical Malpractice
Examples of medical malpractice include:
- Misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose or delayed diagnosis
- Medication and prescription errors
- Wrong site surgery
- Surgical errors and errors in postoperative care
- Emergency room negligence
- Substandard plastic surgery
- Anesthesia errors
Doctors and nurses may not always put in the maximum effort for their clients. By failing to follow up with patients, or by being careless in their jobs, they can make errors that often result in serious and fatal injuries to patients.
