Representing Ill and Injured Patients in Bridgeport, Connecticut & Beyond
In a perfect world, every trip to the doctor’s office would be successful or, better yet, we’d never become sick or injured at all. Illness and injury, though, are facts of life – and the reality is that doctors don’t always make things better. In fact, sometimes, they make things worse.
Medical malpractice stories are frustrating and, in many cases, heartbreaking. They are tales of breached duties and broken trust, of professionals who fail to meet the high standards to which they are called.
The Berkowitz Hanna works hard to give those stories a better ending. We’ve seen firsthand how unfairly patients are often treated. We know that hospitals, physician practice groups, insurance companies, and pharmaceutical corporations do everything that they can to save themselves from liability, regardless of whether it’s the right thing to do. They’re all too willing to turn a blind eye to patients in need.
If you or someone you love is suffering because a doctor, nurse, or medical professional behaved unreasonably, unethically, or was simply negligent in the course of his or her duties, you may be entitled to substantial financial compensation under the laws of our state.
Similarly, if you’ve lost a loved one and medical negligence played in a role in his or her passing, you and your family may be entitled to compensation for wrongful death.
Medical malpractice isn’t an easy battle to fight. Hospitals and doctors have extensive legal resources available to them, so it’s no surprise that injured patients frequently feel that they’re on an uphill climb. But with an aggressive Bridgeport, CT medical malpractice attorney on your side, you can insist on the justice that you and your family deserve.

There Are Many Kinds of Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice is an allegation of negligence. In other words, a medical professional is liable for malpractice whenever he or she fails to perform as a reasonable professional would have performed under similar circumstances.
That can happen in a number of ways. Common examples of medical malpractice include:
- Failure to diagnose a condition
- Failure to properly treat a condition
- Mistakes made in prescribing or administering medication
- Failure to identify allergic reactions or dangerous pharmaceutical combinations
- Failure to consider alternative diagnoses
- Rushing through a patient’s examination and missing important signs or symptoms
- Inadequate follow-up care
- Allowing unqualified personnel to perform medical procedures
- Refusing to take a patient’s complaints seriously
- Causing physical injury to a patient
Naturally, every medical situation is different, and your experience is undoubtedly unique. These are only common examples, so even if your illness or injury doesn’t match the scenarios described above, it’s still a good idea to contact our office and ask whether you might have a case.
