    Experienced lawyers fighting for the injured in Dover

    Our Dover law firm handles cases involving:

    • Medication errors – Examples includes prescribing or administering the wrong type of medication, failing to prescribe or administer needed medication, or giving patients the wrong dosage. This can result in serious side effects, and failure to treat a patient’s condition.
    • Surgical errors – Surgery is a complicated medical procedure and negligence can result in errors. Surgeons may operate on the wrong patient or the wrong area of the body. There can be a problem with anesthesia, or an error during surgery can result in serious injury.
    • Birth injuries – Childbirth sometimes requires surgery and other invasive procedures. When these are performed negligently, both the mother and the newborn child can suffer serious harm. Examples of birth injuries include cerebral palsy, Brachial Plexus Injuries (BPI) and bone fractures.
    • Diagnostic errors – Illnesses and conditions can be difficult to diagnose. That’s why it’s important for doctors to carefully consider all symptoms and order the appropriate tests. When doctors are negligent, an incorrect diagnosis can be made and serious health problems can be mistreated or left untreated altogether.
    • Hospital injuries – Hospitals are supposed to be a place where people can rest and recover from their illnesses or injuries, but if they don’t receive proper medical attention and care, they can suffer other health issues, such as infections.
    • Nursing home abuse and neglect – When we place loved ones in a nursing home, we expect that they will be treated respectfully and that their health needs will be met. That isn’t always the case, and abuse and neglect can lead to serious injuries.
