dallas childrens hospital medical malpractice

Most of us go to the doctor, hospital or emergency room to feel better.  Unfortunately, in some instances you end up feeling worse due to a healthcare provider’s mistake.  Dallas medical malpractice attorney, Michael Sawicki, has been successfully representing clients that have been injured by medical malpractice for years.  Medical malpractice can make an existing condition worse, result in a new injury and even cause death.  Regardless of the severity of the injury, a medical malpractice injury can have devastating and permanent effects on your life.  In these serious situations, you need an attorney with experience in the field and a passion to fight for your rights to get you compensation.    

Medical malpractice can happen at any point in the treatment process.  It can occur during the diagnosis of an illness or condition, the prescription of medication, a routine medical procedure, in surgery due to surgical or anesthesia errors or in emergency situations.  Many parties can be held liable for medical malpractice.  These parties include doctors, nurses, hospitals, nursing homes, emergency rooms and all other medical professionals, organizations and facilities.  It is important to have a skilled attorney who can determine which parties may be at fault for your injuries.

Most medical malpractice suits are pursued on a theory of negligence or recklessness.  All medical providers must act in a certain way when treating medical conditions; this is called the standard of care.  Negligence occurs when a medical provider fails to act in accord with the accepted standard of care for that particular situation.  If a provider fails to act in this way, they can be liable for any resulting harm.  These standards of care vary widely based on the type of situation and location, and can sometimes be difficult to ascertain.  A seasoned medical malpractice attorney will use a wide array of resources to determine what the standard of care was and if it was breached.  Medical providers can also be held liable for medical malpractice if they were reckless.  Recklessness occurs when a medical provider acts in a way that they knew, or should have known, was likely to cause injury.

The victim may be entitled to certain damages to compensate them for their injuries.  Economic damages are awards that compensate the victim for monetary losses or expenses incurred as a result of the medical malpractice.  These might include medical bills, lost wages, attorney’s fees and future expenses or losses.  Non-economic damages compensate the victim for losses that were not monetary, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress and loss or consortium.  Punitive damages are meant to punish the medical provider for especially poor conduct and are available to those that suffered due to reckless behavior.  

These types of actions involve complicated medical issues that may be particularly difficult for a person outside of the medical field to understand.  Attorney Sawicki relies on years of experience, thorough research and medical experts to obtain the information he needs to be successful in a medical malpractice case.  He also frequently writes and lectures on the topic. In addition, Attorney Michael Sawicki won one of the largest verdicts in the country in a medical malpractice case: $606 Million for the wrongful death of a cancer patient.  

While Sawicki Law is based in Dallas, TX, they are available to handle medical malpractice cases in other states.  If you or a loved one has been injured or has died as a result of medical malpractice, contact attorney Michael Sawicki at (888)468-8844.
