There is nowhere one should be safer than in a hospital. When already facing the uncertainty and vulnerability of a medical procedure, it is especially devastating when things do not go as planned. Injury or death resulting from a medical mistake is one of the greatest violations of trust one can experience.
If you have been injured or have lost a loved one as the result of a doctor or hospital's fault or carelessness, Meshbesher & Spence is prepared to seek justice for your family.
Medical mistakes can change your life forever.
Victims of medical mistakes may sustain many kinds of injuries, including:
- Pre- or post-natal injury or death
- Brain damage or injury
- Death caused by improper procedures used in anesthetizing
- Foreign objects left inside a patient during surgery
Regardless of the type of injury, your family may be facing unexpected medical procedures and bills to correct the injury, expensive treatments, and an uncertain future. You may also have lost wages, and are most certainly struggling with the personal strain such circumstances cause for your family.
In the most tragic circumstances, medical mistakes may also result in the death of the patient. As you grieve the loss of a loved one, the obstacles the future may bring are still unclear, and all the more intimidating.
Our attorneys are prepared to help you navigate this difficult time.
The experienced attorneys at Meshbesher & Spence will help you understand what happened to cause your injury, and will advocate for compensation for you and your family in court.
Medical malpractice cases are most often brought against a physician who:
- Failed to use reasonable care in your treatment
- Lacked proper skills
- Disregarded established rules
If a jury finds the physician at fault for your injury because of any of these reasons or other demonstrations of negligence or carelessness, the doctor will be required to pay for your injuries.
What You Should Do
If you believe you may have a viable medical malpractice claim, talk with a Minnesota lawyer at Meshbesher & Spence who is experienced in such cases. At your consultation, be prepared to answer specific questions about your situation, including:
- What happened to you, exactly, from the first time you visited the doctor through your last contact with him or her?
- What were the circumstances surrounding your illness or injury?
- How did your doctor treat your illness or injury?
- What did your doctor tell you about your treatment?
- Did you follow your doctor's instructions?
- What happened to you?
Answers to these and other questions become extremely important if you think your doctor may have committed malpractice.
Each state has specific time limits or deadlines within which to bring personal injury cases, including malpractice, so it is essential that you speak with a lawyer who knows Minnesota law as soon as you receive or discover the injury.
