WERE YOU INJURED from medical malpractice?
we are READY TO FIGHT FOR YOU.
Medical malpractice involves the negligence of physicians and other healthcare providers. In other words, if a medical provider performs an act that should not have been done (or fails to perform an act that should have been done), resulting in injury or death of another, that healthcare provider should be held responsible for that action. While some acts resulting in injury are not considered negligence or malpractice, healthcare providers are required to provide a certain standard of care. Violations of these standards result in medical malpractice.
Halperin Law Center skillfully manages claims in the following areas of medical malpractice/healthcare negligence:
- Birth injuries – Several types of trauma, ranging from mild to catastrophic, can result from childbirth. Usually a result of birth complications, babies and mothers can endure acute or permanent injury as a result of medical malpractice during labor and birth. For example, if a physician fails to predict dangerous complications or delays a cesarean section, the baby may be deprived of oxygen to the brain, resulting in the permanent debilitating condition of cerebral palsy. Misuse of drugs such as Pitocin or delivery equipment such as forceps can also result in significant injury to mother and/or baby. If you or your baby have been injured during labor or birth, you may be entitled to monetary compensation for your losses..
- Nursing home abuse – If you suspect your family member is being neglected or abused in his/her long-term care residence (such as assisted-living, adult, or nursing home), contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney to discuss your case. Among others, signs of abuse and neglect are: poor hygiene, bruises, dehydration or malnutrition, bed sores, insufficient supervision and/or staffing and unexplained bruising. If you have witnessed these situations in your loved one, you may be eligible for monetary compensation for suffering and damages. Attorney Jonathan Halperin can help you determine the particulars of your situation and whether or not you have a case.
