You Can Get Help From an Experienced Medical Malpractice Attorney
Medical malpractice occurs when a medical provider acts in a manner that deviates from the accepted standard of care within that medical community. This behavior can result in negligent treatment or mistakes that may cause a lifetime of pain or disability. In the most severe cases, malpractice can cause wrongful death.
I understand that the effects of medical malpractice may be devastating and long lasting. I will work hard to seek justice for you and your family. At the law office of Richard H. Raphael in Westport, Connecticut, I represent victims of misdiagnoses and failure to diagnose. You can trust my experience and knowledge with these types of malpractice cases.
The Effects of Misdiagnoses
When malpractice occurs, victims who should be healing from their health problems find themselves burdened with additional injuries or illnesses. I understand the legal and medical implications of misdiagnoses and failure to diagnose. I can help you with claims such as:
- Misdiagnosis or late diagnosis
- Failure to diagnose cancer, heart attack, meningitis, stroke or pulmonary embolism
- Failure to diagnose or treat infection
One of the problems of a misdiagnosis is that it often causes the misdiagnosed condition to worsen; or, it may make another condition worse. Proving that the misdiagnosis was the cause of additional illness or wrongful death can be extremely challenging, however. You need a lawyer with significant experience pursuing medical malpractice claims.
I have been practicing law for more than 30 years and am a skilled negotiator and litigator. In addition, I consult with medical and financial experts to provide proof of negligence and the effect it has on the victim's life. With this evidence, I am able to argue for full and fair compensation for medical bills, lost income, monthly expenses, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life.
