Jackson Medical Malpractice Attorney
Our health and our very lives are in the hands of doctors, hospitals and medical professionals who receive specialized education and training to provide an adequate, reasonable level of care. When doctors fail to treat their patients according to the expected standard of care, the results can be disastrous.
Doctors and hospitals can be held liable for the injuries caused by their malpractice, but being able to prove that their medical negligence is the cause of your injury can be challenging, to say the least. Fortunately, the Jackson medical malpractice attorneys at Derek L. Hall, PC have the skills, experience and tenacity to prepare and present a compelling case when patients are harmed by their doctors’ surgical errors or other medical mistakes.
Injured Due to Medical Malpractice? It’s Time to Call Hall.
The different ways medical negligence can occur are nearly limitless. Some of the most common medical mistakes include:
- Performing surgery on the wrong body part or wrong side of the body
- Performing the wrong surgery on the wrong patient
- Failure to diagnose cancer
- Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis
- Continuing an improper or ineffective course of treatment
- Prescribing or administering the wrong medicine
- Prescribing or administering the wrong dosage
- Birth injuries to mother or child
- Failure to obtain informed consent
Preparing a medical malpractice case requires obtaining medical expert testimony from a doctor who can explain how the defendant doctor failed to perform properly, and how that failure caused or worsened the patient’s illness or injury. Your lawyer must be able to get that technical medical information across to the jury in a way they can understand, while making sure they are not taken in by the expert opinions offered on the other side. With over 20 years of courtroom litigation and personal injury trial experience, attorney Derek Hall knows how to relate to juries and get them to understand even the most complicated facts of a case.
