Medical malpractice occurs when a health care provider administers treatment that falls below the accepted standard of practice in the medical community and causes injury or death to the patient. Most medical professionals provide patients with competent and conscientious medical care. Not all negative outcomes of medical care are a result of a medical professional’s negligence. It is important to remember that the standard of care is not perfection. However, there are occasions when a medical professional’s care falls below the appropriate standard of care that results in a serious injury or death where a claim for malpractice exists.
Medical malpractice cases require the investment of tremendous amounts of resources for cases that are difficult to win. The medical malpractice insurance industry is well-equipped to deal with claims against medical professionals. At the Perry Law Firm, we have the resources and experience to properly evaluate and handle medical malpractice cases. Our experienced legal team has represented clients on cases from birth injuries and bed sores to a perforated bowel in a routine colonoscopy. In one case from central Nebraska, our client was hospitalized for pneumonia and over the course of her treatment she began to develop bed sores. The bed sores became so severe that they eventually caused the patient’s death. Through our thorough investigation and the hiring of a world-renowned expert on bed sores, our legal team was able to demonstrate that the hospital had failed to properly turn the patient to avoid the bed sores and then failed to properly treat the bed sores once they had developed. As a result of our legal team’s diligence, the family of the patient received a substantial settlement. Our legal team also helped guide the deceased patient’s personal representative of the estate through the probating of the estate and a dispute with family members over how the settlement was to be divided.
