Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice: When Treatment Makes You Worse

Doctors live by the motto: First, do no harm. Yet doctors, nurses and other medical professionals do make mistakes. Sometimes those mistakes can result in serious injuries or even wrongful death.

If you have suffered serious harm because of medical malpractice, please contact me, attorney J. Burton Hunter, III. I am a personal injury lawyer who represents clients in medical malpractice claims, including those involving:

  • Birth injury
  • Surgical errors
  • Emergency room mistakes
  • Wrong diagnosis, including cancer misdiagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose cancer and other diseases
  • Nursing medication errors
  • Pharmacy errors

Medical malpractice is not always due to a doctor or nurse’s mistake. Sometimes hospitals or clinics fail to have proper policies in place to protect patient safety.

In all medical malpractice claims, the question is whether or not the healthcare provider violated an established standard of care. If they did and you suffered serious damages because of it, you may be able to recover financial compensation for your losses.

Getting Expert Medical Opinions

After analyzing the facts of your case, I will send your medical records to a respected medical expert for review. If evidence of medical malpractice is found, I will work to obtain the full amount of financial compensation you are entitled to receive.

Filing medical malpractice claims not only compensates the victims, it can help protect others from suffering a similar fate by encouraging safer practices.
