How do you know if medical malpractice has occurred?

Gretchen is an experienced trial attorney who has helped many families obtain maximum compensation for their losses for over 35 years. She handles injury and wrongful death claims arising from hospital negligence. Each of these claims begins with a complimentary case evaluation. In that appointment, she will sit down with you and listen to your side of the story. She will listen to your concerns and begin to determine if medical malpractice played a role in the injury or death. Oftentimes, clients are coming to me to obtain closure after the tragic death of a loved one or after a surgical error has caused a life-altering injury.

Many people will have some indication that medical malpractice has occurred. Perhaps your doctor will not give you a straight answer, refuses to talk to you or acts suspicious in some way. As your attorney, Gretchen gets to the truth of the matter. Working with medical experts, she examines whether the doctor, surgeon or other medical professional breached established standard of care, and if the surgeon did what no other surgeon would have done in a similar situation.

Gretchen handles surgical errors that occur in virtually all types of surgery, including Lasik eye surgery, gastric bypass surgery, abdominal surgery, orthopedic surgery and more. Injuries and deaths can arise from the following:

  • Wrong site surgery
  • Wrong side surgery
  • Wrong procedure
  • Wrong patient surgery
  • Perforations to organs and bowels
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Surgical instruments and sponges left in patients
  • Post-surgical infections
  • Post-surgical complications

We strongly believe in the cause of protecting the rights of the injured. If you or your loved one was injured by a surgical error, contact The Law Offices of Gretchen Myers, P.C. to arrange your free initial consultation.
