Legal Experience and Expertise Fighting on Behalf of Victims of Medical Malpractice in Stamford, Danbury, Bridgeport, Shelton and all of Connecticut
Medical negligence, also known as medical malpractice, is one of the leading causes of death in America.
In a seminal study by the Institute of Medicine (IOM), researchers estimated that some 98,000 patients die from preventable medical mistakes every year.
In other words, doctors make careless, fatal errors nearly as often as people suffer heart attack, strokes, car accidents, and other leading causes of death. Moreover, a doctor’s negligence can actually cause a patient to suffer a heart attack, stroke, or debilitating crisis.
Doctors hold so much responsibility in their hands. Patients show up at their doorsteps will little to no expertise or insight into their ailments. They only know one thing: They need a doctor’s care.
The relationship between patient and care provider is one premised on responsibility and trust. When the doctor breaks that trust by acting irresponsibly or carelessly – even if it is entirely by accident – the doctor becomes legally accountable for the injuries and suffering that happen as a result. Hospitals, urgent care clinics, and other medical groups can be held liable too.

Medical Negligence Has Devastating Consequences
When a doctor, nurse, or other healthcare provider engages in medical negligence, the consequences are almost always devastating. Patients are frequently left with debilitating, life-changing injuries. Typical damages include:
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Dangerous pharmaceutical complications
- Advanced stages of fatal illnesses like cancer
- Irreversible stroke
- Birth injuries
- Cerebral palsy
- Severe emotional distress
- Wrongful death
Medical negligence can take many forms, and it can happen because of everyday carelessness – things like:
- Not really listening to patients
- Inadequate sanitation
- Failure to consider alternative diagnoses
- Failure to take a patient’s complete history
- Having too many patients
- Not communicating properly with other medical personnel
- Mixing up patients’ charts or records
- Any other irresponsible or dangerous behavior
