Medical Errors

Most people don't think that a routine office visit or minor surgery will result in injury, illness or death. But it happens. Medical personnel make mistakes — sometimes negligently. They deviate from the established standard of care. They fail to observe safety precautions built into standard medical procedures and processes.

When you or a loved one is injured or dies as a result of medical errors, it's important to learn about your options. You may be eligible for compensation — compensation that will pay for medical care and home health care and replace lost wages if your injury leaves you unable to work.

At Elk & Elk Co., Ltd., our attorneys will explore all options to obtain the resources you need and deserve after a medical error leaves you wondering about the future. To discuss your case and learn how we can help, call us at 844-ELK-WEST (844-355-9378) or contact us online for a free consultation.

Examples of our cases

Our lawyers handle cases involving all types of medical errors, including:

  • Failing to diagnose cancer, heart disease and other serious illnesses
  • Failing to order standard tests
  • Failing to treat in a timely way
  • Administering too much or too little anesthesia
  • Leaving instruments inside a patient during a procedure
  • Failing to properly monitor patients after surgery
  • Failing to take adequate history of a patient before treating

Each of these errors can lead to injury, illness or death. If you believe a mistake was made because the provider failed to follow the approved standard of care, you may be eligible for compensation. This can give you the resources to pay your medical bills, replace lost income and provide for in-home medical care.
