Medical malpractice cases can arise from surgical malpractice and failure to diagnose or properly treat medical conditions. Negligent reading of mammograms, x-rays and other medical tests are examples of failure to diagnose. Surgical malpractice
can include the negligent performance of an operation, leaving instruments inside the patient and failure to recognize complications during surgery. Negligence during post-operative procedures can also be surgical malpractice
and Truck Accidents
: Automobile accidents can result from a number of factors, including operator negligence, drunk driving, product liability and defective road design.
With negligent driving, a finding of negligence may be based on the operator’s failure to obey traffic signals, failure to follow the speed limit and drunk driving. An experienced lawyer can investigate and determine whether there is negligence in your case.
Medical bills and lost wages can quickly add up and the at-fault driver’s insurance may not cover all the expenses. This means it is important to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer
