Wyoming Medical Malpractice Lawyers
It’s not ok when an emergency room delays treatment for a patient’s deadly condition. It’s not ok when a radiologist fails to detect cancer in time to treat it properly. It’s not ok when hospital staff allows a patient to fall while transferring them to another bed.
Every year, over 250,000 people are killed due to preventable medical errors. According to a study conducted by Johns Hopkins University, medical malpractice is the third leading cause death in the United States.

When a medical professional commits a negligent act that harms a patient, it’s called medical malpractice. During your lawyer’s investigation, we will determine if you were harmed due to negligence, which means a medical professional deviated from the standard of care.
Doctors, nurses, chiropractors, pharmacists, lab technicians, hospital administrators, and staff can all make errors that result in medical malpractice. For example, if you are having surgery to remove a cancerous kidney and the surgeon removes your healthy kidney instead, that act violates the standard of care. No reasonably competent surgeon would have made this mistake.
If you have been harmed by a medical professional who failed to meet the standard of care, you have the right to seek justice and reparation through a malpractice lawsuit.
Your Wyoming medical malpractice lawyer will review your medical records and interview everyone involved in the incident where you were harmed. They will also consult with expert medical witnesses to determine whose act of negligence caused your injuries.
Causes of medical malpractice may include:
- Failure to provide proper treatment
- Failure to get informed consent
- Poorly coordinated care
- Communication errors
- Fragmented insurance networks
- Ignoring safety protocols
- Lack of accountability
