Giving You An Honest Evaluation
At The Law Offices of Druckman & Estep, we understand that you may be reluctant to pursue a medical malpractice lawsuit because you are unfamiliar with the legal requirements and the litigation process. That is why our Charleston medical malpractice lawyers offer a free initial consultation to review the facts and give you a complete, honest evaluation.
Defining Medical Malpractice
As West Virginia malpractice lawyers, we understand the high barriers that have to be cleared to prove that malpractice occurred. It’s not enough just to show that a health care professional violated the standard of care.
We focus on proving that you or your loved one sustained an injury – brain damage, paralysis or death – that would not have occurred without negligence by the care provider. That negligence can involve any of these critical issues:
- Anesthesia errors
- Bariatric surgery complications
- Birth injury to the child or the mother
- Brain injuries
- Cauda equina syndrome
- Delayed diagnosis of breast or prostate cancer
- Drug errors by physicians or pharmacists
- Emergency room errors
- Foreign objects left behind after surgery
- IV infiltration mistakes
- Medication errors in prescription drugs or anesthesia
- Surgical mistakes involving lapses in judgment, skill or attention
- Misdiagnosis of a medical condition
- Pulmonary embolism
Defining Malpractice Litigation Success
