Medical Malpractice Lawyer for Injury Compensation Claims

Medical Malpractice Injury Lawyer Supports Victims of Medical Negligence

If you or a loved one has been injured due to poor or negligent medical care you need to speak to a lawyer with the experience and skill to handle a medical malpractice injury. Even with the advances in medical science, the most skilled physicians cannot guarantee cures for all patients who need their help. While State laws in Idaho and Utah are written to protect healthcare providers who perform their jobs with reasonable care, negligent doctor and hospital errors can cause needless injuries to patients. Medical malpractice law can help injured patients pursue compensation for expenses related to their injuries. These cases require representation from a lawyer.

Attorney David L. Morgan has more than a decade of experience guiding clients through their potential injury claims. He is dedicated to providing his clients with the personal and legal support they need to move forward after a healthcare provider causes personal injury in Boise, in Salt Lake City or anywhere in Idaho or Utah.

How medical negligence can cause injuries

Most people obtain good results from the healthcare providers they trust. But medical malpractice attorneys often work with victims of clear medical negligence, such as:

  • Surgical errors — Most surgery involves some degree of risk, and surgeons typically take great care to explain the chances for unavoidable injuries. But according to Johns Hopkins Medicine, about 4,000 surgical patients fall prey to never events — things that should never happen, such as operating on the wrong patient or on the wrong part of the body, or even leaving items in the body.
  • Anesthesia errors — Anesthesiologists and anesthetists are responsible for administering the right type and amount of anesthesia and monitoring vital signs in surgery.
  • Obstetric errors — Any number of errors in the delivery room can cause birth injury to an infant or mother.
  • Diagnostic errors — Failure to correctly diagnose a condition due to lack of proper testing — or even failure to diagnose at all — can lead to harmful treatment or treatment initiated too late to save a patient from permanent debilitation or death.
  • Hospital errors — Particularly for inpatients, hospital understaffing can lead to a harmful delay in response to patients in distress. And failure to follow prescribed hygiene procedures can cause unnecessary and often serious infections.
