Wallingford Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Medical mistakes are alarmingly common. They are a leading cause of death in the United States. And while many cases of medical negligence get reported, it is widely understood that the vast majority of cases fly under the radar. Patients either aren’t sure whether their doctor made a mistake or they aren’t sure how to seek help. In either scenario, they end up living with the devastating consequences of their health care provider’s error without the financial resources they need to move on.

At Berkowitz Hanna, our personal injury attorneys are committed to helping victims of medical malpractice in Wallingford, CT, recover just compensation. Our Wallingford medical malpractice lawyers have decades of combined experience handling medical malpractice cases in Connecticut, and we have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for our clients’ losses. If you believe you may have a claim – or if you are not sure and would like to find out – we can assess the quality of your or your loved one’s treatment and help you make an informed decision about asserting your legal rights.

What Constitutes Medical Malpractice?

In Connecticut, a doctor, nurse, or other health care provider commits medical malpractice when he or she provides a diagnosis or treatment in a manner that falls below the accepted standard of care. Misdiagnoses are by far the most common form of medical malpractice, but virtually any type of error has the potential to constitute malpractice as well. Hospitals, clinics, and other facilities can also be held liable for diagnostic and treatment-related mistakes, whether due to their own negligence (e.g., recordkeeping and administrative negligence) or the negligence of the medical professionals they employ.

Within our practice, we represent individuals and families who are suffering due to all forms of medical negligence. This includes, but is not limited to, cases involving:

  • Anesthesia Malpractice
  • OBGYN/Labor and Delivery Malpractice
  • Blood Transfusion Mistakes
  • Brain Damage
  • Cancer 
  • Cardiology Malpractice
  • Cerebral Palsy and Erb’s Palsy
  • Emergency Room Errors
  • Heart Attacks 
  • Hospital Administration Errors
  • Medication Errors
  • Misdiagnosis, Delayed Diagnosis, and Failure to Diagnose
  • Psychiatric Malpractice
  • Radiology and X-Ray Malpractice
  • Robotic Surgery Malpractice

If you are struggling due to the effects of inadequate or substandard medical care and would like more information about your legal rights, we encourage you to get in touch. Your initial consultation is completely free and confidential, and our Wallingford medical malpractice attorney will be happy to explain everything you need to know.
