Medical Malpractice

Trust In Us When You Suspect A Mistake Has Been Made

We trust doctors, nurses and other health care professionals to take care of us and our loved ones when we need it. Most of the time, they perform their job admirably, or at least adequately. From time to time, however, they make mistakes. These mistakes might be relatively minor and have little or no impact, or they might be major and cause an injury or illness to get worse. In a worst-case scenario, these errors might contribute to the death of a patient.

Michalski Law Office has been working with clients who have experienced various aspects of medical malpractice for three decades. While many mistakes are just that — mistakes — sometimes a patient's injury or illness is caused by negligence or abuse.

What Kinds Of Events Might Constitute A Case?

Every situation is different, but medical malpractice might be a result of one or more of these factors:

  • Medication errors, either in dosage or the drug itself
  • Failure to monitor a patient in what would be considered a reasonable amount of time
  • Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a serious illness such as cancer
  • Substance abuse on the part of a care provider, leading to an error
  • Negligence or outright abuse of a vulnerable patient or nursing home resident

However the injury or illness occurred, speaking to a medical malpractice attorney can be the first step toward recovering damages for the wrong that has been committed. Contact Michalski Law Office for a free consultation about your case at 320-200-1090 or by filling out our online contact form.
