Our medical malpractice team is equipped to handle most any medical malpractice case regardless of the type of injury suffered. Malpractice occurs whenever a medical professional deviates from the accepted standard of care for his or her field of medicine. All doctors and health care providers have an ethical and legal obligation to give every patient responsible and safe treatment and attention.
Malpractice often results in severe injuries that can leave a patient debilitated for life or even cause death. If you or a loved one is the victim of malpractice, you should contact a medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible. At Speeter & Johnson, our experienced team consists of Attorney Robert Speeter and Senior Medical Paralegal Shanlee Speeter who have successfully won multi-million dollar settlements. Depending on the specific nature of the case we regularly partner with other attorneys, as the needs of the case require.
We will aggressively fight to protect your rights and help you secure the compensation that you deserve. The care provider may be liable and owe you damages which may include medical costs (and future medical expenses), pain and suffering, mental anguish, rehabilitation, lost wages, and other associated costs.
Our office is highly selective with the types of Medical Malpractice Cases we accept as we always provide direct access to our selected clients to the Attorney and Senior Medical Paralegal 24/7.
Types of Medical Malpractice Cases
Despite the best efforts of modern medicine, bad results sometimes happen after medical treatment that is simply no one’s fault. Not all patients respond to treatment, and some may even suffer further injury. There are also many instances when a bad outcome is the result of malpractice.
Malpractice may range from the acts of grossly reckless physicians and health care providers to the acts of good and respected doctors who were momentarily negligent in their treatment of a patient. However, the injured patient in any case has a right of recovery against the negligent provider. Some of the most common forms of medical malpractice in Minnesota include:
- Misdiagnosing or failing to diagnose a serious disease or illness
- Delayed diagnosis
- Failing to provide treatment on time
- Prescribing the wrong medication or the wrong dosage
- Failure to provide standard follow-up care
- Misinterpretation of lab results (or lab mistakes)
- Inability to order necessary tests
- Anesthesia errors (such as incorrect dosages, wrong timing, failing to gather sufficient pre-operative information, failing to monitor a patient, etc.)
- Hospital or care facility errors (such as early release, providing treatment to the wrong patient, unnecessary treatment, medication errors, failing to monitor a patient, etc. properly)
- Birth injuries
- Brain injuries
Dealing With Minnesota Medical Malpractice?
These types of lawsuits are subject to different laws than the typical personal injury claim and can be very complex. Strict rules and statutes of limitations for filing claims must be followed, and it is essential to secure the aid of an experienced legal team.
