Doctor Negligence & Surgical Errors

While every person trusts their life to their doctor when undergoing a surgical procedure, during childbirth, or simply when they are writing a prescription, doctors do occasionally make mistakes. However, when the mistake is made out of negligence or irresponsibility, justice must be sought. If you or someone you love has been injured or fallen ill at the hands of a doctor, do not hesitate another moment longer to speak to the Miami personal injury lawyer from the Law Office of Maria L. Rubio.

At our office, the legal team represents clients who have suffered any type of injury, such as a birth injury, brain injury, injury from a defective medical implant, or due to medical negligence such as prescribing a dangerous or defective drug. We strongly believe that no person should have to suffer the pain of being injured by a trusted doctor, which is why we take medical malpractice cases very seriously at our office. We will put forth every effort to ensure that you obtain the highest maximum settlement available to compensate your injuries or illness.

When diagnosed with an illness or injury due to a negligent doctor, you will require extensive treatment and therapy. In some cases, the victim requires constant medical attention for months or even years to come, which can be very expensive. The legal team at our firm will work diligently to ensure that you obtain a settlement large enough to cover all expenses.

When your child is injured due to a mistake the hospital staff made during child birth, you and your family deserve to be compensated. Some of the more common birth injuries include cerebral palsy, premature delivery and other brain injuries due to lack of oxygen or an error on the doctor’s behalf. Our firm will help you file a claim while you and your child recover from the traumatic events that have just occurred. Leave the negotiation up to our firm as we fight to represent your child’s best interests.

Medical Negligence Claims Against Medical Professionals

Medical negligence occurs in a variety of different healthcare sectors and usually involves a professional healthcare provider’s negligent, incorrect diagnosis or treatment of an injury or illness that leads to a range of more serious consequences. Medical negligence can be committed by any healthcare professional such as a nurse or doctor, and may be caused by any number of reasons such as fatigue and decreased awareness of symptoms or reactions, lack of experience or knowledge of the particular injury or condition, and more. If you have been the victim of medical negligence, it may be wise to speak with a Miami injury attorney who can help provide valuable insight into your case.

Despite the many reasons why medical negligence may occur, the fact remains that negligence on this important front is absolutely inappropriate and should be met with strict consequences. Victims of this type of negligence can suffer prolonged personal injury, incorrect healing that results in life-long problems, other ailments that may arise from incorrect treatment or even death. The effects of these debilitating personal injuries can impact not only the victim, but as well the victim’s family, career and social life. It’s important that medical negligence be identified and exposed in order to prevent further instances that can put more people’s livelihood, and their very lives, in danger.
