Representing clients in Washington DC and Maryland
When you see a doctor, you inherently expect that you will be treated with quality care, but in the reality of the healthcare industry, mistakes may be made by physicians and medical professionals that lead to the injury, disability, or even wrongful death of a patient. This does not mean, however, that all mistakes are equal—or that doctors and hospitals are exempt from liability. When a physician or hospital misdiagnoses or mistreats a medical condition and causes harm, they may be held liable for injuries caused by their medical malpractice. If you or a loved one have sustained a birth injury, brain injury, or any other serious injuries as a result of medical malpractice in Washington D.C. or Maryland, you can seek the compensation you deserve for medical bills, loss of earning capacity, funeral expenses, or physical and emotional suffering with the help of medical malpractice attorney Sandra H. Robinson.
Types of Medical Malpractice
Malpractice is a complex legal area, so there are many different types of cases that may fall into medical malpractice. Failure to diagnose a condition, improper treatment, and failure to warn a patient of procedural risks may all be the cause of medical malpractice. While these hospital errors & physician errors are rarely intentional or malicious, they can still lead to significant harm that may have otherwise been avoided.
