Diagnosis errors

Physicians go through years of education and training to make sure they are suitable enough to handle all applicable medical circumstances. If a doctor fails to properly diagnose a patient, the patient’s life is put at stake. Whether there was a misdiagnosis, a delayed diagnosis, a failure to diagnose, or a physician’s error, a patient could have missed out on critical time that could have been utilized to treat the health issue sooner.

Nursing home negligence

While putting a loved one in a nursing home is a hard decision to make, in some instances, it is the best choice to ensure they are obtaining the care they need. This is because an elderly and/or ailing loved one requires 24/7 care that a nursing home can deliver. Similar to hospitals, nursing homes have a duty to ensure that their patients are provided with the utmost care that satisfies adequate standards. However, unfortunately, there are instances where individuals are injured as a result of mistreatment or other forms of negligence that deviate from the standard of care.

Wrongful death

If you lose a loved one because of a doctor’s negligence, you might want to speak with an attorney to investigate your legal options. While we recognize that compensation will never replace a loved one, it can help ease some of the financial burdens caused by the death and provide future security. At Friedman Schuman, our legal team provides clients with the highest level of understanding when working through wrongful death claims.

Brain injury

Unfortunately, thousands of individuals fall victim to brain injuries as a result of negligence. A brain injury can be devastating to the victim and their families. If you or a loved one has sustained an avoidable brain injury, it is critical to have competent legal representation on your side.

Medication errors

Medicine is a critical aid that is used to help individuals with ailments ranging from simple headaches to treating serious illnesses. Patients depend on doctors and nurses to correctly prescribe and/or administer the medication they need. If you were the victim of a medication error because of a negligent doctor or nurse, reach out to our firm today to speak with an attorney at Friedman Schuman to determine if you or your loved one has a viable medical malpractice claim.
