What Counts as Medical Malpractice?

First, you must have a doctor-patient relationship with the medical provider. That is, he or she must officially provide you with medical advice or treatment.

Second, there must be negligence in some way that leads directly to your injury or damages. Examples of this would be a doctor reading your test results incorrectly and failing to diagnose cancer, or, as in one lawsuit we handled, a nurse injecting the wrong dosage of a drug directly into a patient’s system, causing heart stoppage that resulted in brain damage.

The bottom line is this: if another reasonable healthcare provider in the same situation would have handled your case differently, without hurting you, then your provider was likely negligent and may be responsible for all associated costs. If you suspect you have a claim, do not delay - states have their own rules and laws which limit the amount of time you have to file a medical malpractice claim, called statutes of limitations. The sooner we can start our investigation and gather evidence in your case, the better.

Case Study: Wrong Dose

Our client was born with a common congenital heart defect. At only 4 days old, she headed to the operating room for corrective surgery. But it went horribly wrong. Staff at Children’s Hospital Colorado gave her the wrong dose of prostaglandin, which sent her into cardiac arrest. For 33 minutes, they were unable to resuscitate her. As a result, this little girl suffered brain damage, including cerebral palsy and cognitive disabilities. When she was 7 years old, we took the case to court and received a jury verdict of $17.8 million. "Words cannot express how grateful we are that Leventhal & Puga has made it possible for our daughter to receive the lifelong care she will need," said her mother.

Case Study: Paralyzed after an Injection

Our client went into an ambulatory surgery center for treatment of back pain. She came out a paraplegic. Doctors at the center used a drug called Kenalog, which contained a warning that it could cause serious injury or death if administered by epidural injection. Our client suffered permanent paralysis from the waist down within minutes of receiving the drug by epidural. After we argued her case in court, the jury awarded her $14.9 million.
