Connecticut Medical Malpractice Attorneys
Each year hundreds of medical school graduates take the Hippocratic Oath – an oath historically taken by physicians, physicians’ assistants and other workers in the medical industry who pledges to provide patients with ethical and honest treatment and care. Despite the best efforts of medical professionals to follow the Oath, sometimes mistakes happen, which can cause serious injuries to patients.
If you have been injured due to medical mistakes or negligence, you need to act quickly! Connecticut’s statute of limitations for filing medical malpractice claims expires two years from the date you were injured or the date your injury was discovered. You must file your lawsuit before this time period expires. As soon as you believe that your injury may be the result of medical negligence, you should speak with a reputable attorney to determine if you have cause for filing a lawsuit. At Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers, we have the experience needed to provide you with this advice, and can carefully guide you through the personal injury litigation process.
Medical Malpractice at All Levels
Unfortunately, medical errors can occur at all levels of the health care field, and can be the fault of anyone from the support staff to the specialists taking care of your health. In fact, a wide range of people and entities can be liable for malpractice, including:
- Nursing homes
- Health clinics
- Specialists (Anesthesiologists)
Considering the vast scope of health care malpractice, it is important to have your claimed looked at by an experienced law firm, who can help to determine if you may be eligible for compensation.
Common Types of Medical Negligence
An injured patient may be eligible to receive compensation for medicinal and therapeutic expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and loss of quality of life. Sometimes, however, it is very difficult to determine who was at fault for an error leading to an injury. Understandably, not all injuries are valid grounds for filing a suit.
Before a case can be presented in court, it is necessary to have testimony from an expert health care professional, who is able to verify the care provider’s liability and support the testimony with sufficient evidence and related facts.
