Medical Malpractice

Jacobs & Crumplar has won million-dollar recoveries in medical malpractice for negligence and misdiagnosis, including recoveries for a misdiagnosed heart tumor and for defective stitches following surgery. Our medical malpractice attorneys have the depth of experience and the resources to pursue your case to a successful outcome.

What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice refers to any situation in which a medical professional’s neglect or wrongful action causes the injury or death of a patient. A medical professional can be found negligent if he or she fails to provide the accepted standard of care, a standard that another reasonably prudent professional in the same situation would have met. Medical malpractice cases may arise if a doctor misdiagnoses – or fails to diagnose – a health problem, fails to respond appropriately to a patient’s condition, makes a surgical mistake, prescribes the wrong medication, or is otherwise negligent in a patient’s care.

The medical malpractice attorneys at Jacobs & Crumplar handle cases involving:

  • Failure to Diagnose
  • Hospital Negligence
  • Medical Equipment
  • Medication Errors
  • Mis-diagnosis
  • Mistreatment
  • Surgical Injury
  • Other Medical Negligence

The Cost to Families & Victims

Victims and their families often suffer immense hardship as a result of medical malpractice. In addition to physical pain and suffering, which can be permanently debilitating, victims and their families often experience emotional anguish and financial difficulty. Many families are unable to cope with mounting medical and other expenses, such as hospital bills, home or long-term medical care, physical therapy, and loss of work income. It is crucial that these victims and their families receive just compensation for their injuries in order to cover these expenses and begin the healing process.
