How a Medical Malpractice Attorney Can Help

If you or someone you love has suffered an injury because of an incident such as a misdiagnosis, medication mistake, doctor fraud or botched surgery, a Maine medical malpractice lawyer can help. Medical malpractice attorneys mostly work with cases based on negligence—meaning that the medical provider failed to meet the required standards of skill, defined by generally-acceptable medical standards.

Since medical professionals are unable to guarantee the results of medical treatment, you do not have a valid medical malpractice claim simply because your procedure was not successful.

Examples of medical malpractice include incidents such as:

  • Failure to diagnose a heart attack, cancer, meningitis or stoke
  • Cutting off the oxygen supply during surgery
  • Failing to refer to a specialist or perform the appropriate tests considering the symptoms
  • Prescribing a drug not approved by the FDA or inappropriate for the patient’s condition
  • Failing to obtain patient consent

If you live in Maine and have suffered an injury due to medical malpractice, you can hold the negligent party liable by law. Please complete the online form and the Elite Injury Attorneys’ Network, LLC can recommend a trusted Maine medical malpractice lawyer to explain your options and help you move forward with your claim, if it seems credible.
