The medical profession is a trusted one. Health care professionals have a duty to care for you in an attempt to either make you better or keep you well. At times, however, a doctor, nurse, or other health care professional may violate that duty by providing a level of care that does not meet the accepted standard, which may lead to a patient's catastrophic injury or death. If you, or a loved one, are injured due to this substandard care, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses.
Experienced Detroit Medical Malpractice Attorneys
Sachs Waldman, P.C. represents clients in medical malpractice claims as a result of the negligence of a licensed doctor, nurse, health care professional, clinic or hospital's breach of the recognized standard of care. These claims can involve operating on the wrong body part, not performing an operation with proper skill and training, having unexpected and unintended results from treatment, not providing proper care and/or follow up care, mis-prescribing medication, etc.
Nursing Home Liability
An evolving area that may also involve a medical malpractice claim, or may only involve an ordinary negligence claim, is that of nursing home liability. The Michigan appellate courts have not yet settled on whether claims for lack of proper care, supervision, and/or facilities in a nursing home setting that leads to injury or death sounds in ordinary negligence or requires professional standard of care testimony. If the former, the proofs are simpler and less expensive. If the latter, the proofs are much more stringent and costly, and there are "caps" on any recovery. We have handled cases involving bed sores, bed rail strangulation, falls and patient abuse. Consult with us regarding your specific situation.
