Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice claims can be some of the most devastating claims to pursue. Doctors, nurses and hospitals are to be trusted. However, sometimes a doctor, nurse or a hospital may be liable for the harm they caused you or a family member. At the Krause and Kinsman Law Firm we hold doctors accountable for their negligence.

We put so much faith in doctors, nurses, and hospital staff, we automatically assume everything is going to be okay and if you ever hear about a malpractice lawsuit, it may be a passing commercial on the television or an article in the paper. It would never happen to your family.

But…what if it did?

An estimated two-hundred thousand people fall victim to medical malpractice each year, and the reasons can vary significantly. Medical malpractice is a fancy phrase for medical staff doing something negligent. It can be from giving the wrong patient the wrong prescription medication to delivering a baby into the world and making a life-changing mistake that will cause the newborn to face a life full of tubes, monitoring, diminished health, and a life that will revolve around having to be in and out of hospitals for the rest of their lives.

What types of medical malpractice claims are there?

There are too many types of medical malpractice claims to list. Generally, a medical malpractice claim will focus on whether the doctor or nurse falls below the standard of care in the medical community. This can happen when nurses wait too long in an emergency situation to access the patient. A doctor may mess up a surgery, fail to diagnose a disease or miss prescribe medication.
