Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Our New Hampshire lawyers know what it takes to get justice

Compassionate healthcare providers personally care for patients when they need it most. And when we're injured, we expect our insurance, our hospitals and our doctors to care for us and treat any ailments we may suffer from. We expect our diagnoses to be clear and accurate. We expect our medication to heal us, not cause harm. We expect medical procedures to improve our health and well-being.

Unfortunately, these standards are not always met – something our Dover and Portsmouth, NH medical malpractice lawyers know all too well. And when medical professionals ignore these standards, many people often sustain serious injuries. Such injuries are known as medical malpractice and they have become a leading contributor to fatalities in the U.S. At Burns, Bryant, Cox, Rockefeller & Durkin, P.A., we realize your physical and mental health cannot be overlooked. Otherwise, the results can often be catastrophic. This includes:

    Medication Errors

    When we are prescribed medication, we expect it to treat the condition ailing us. Adverse side effects from medication should be something patients are aware of before they begin taking any medication. Unfortunately, some doctors don't take the necessary precautions when prescribing or administering medications. As a result, some patients suffer very severe injuries. When this happens, our experienced medical malpractice lawyers can help you hold medical professionals accountable for their actions.

    Diagnostic Errors

    Providing medical attention should not be a guessing game. Though some illnesses and conditions can be difficult to diagnose, doctors should take their time and make sure they get it right the first time. Too often, the wrong tests are ordered. Other symptoms are overlooked. Treatment is delayed. The wrong treatment is provided. Without prompt attention and accurate treatment, conditions diagnosed in error or left untreated can cause serious health problems or even prove to be deadly.

    Surgical Errors

    Surgery is often a necessary part of treatment. Invasive procedures usually involve an entire medical team tending to a patient. While many surgeons, nurses and other medical professionals provide competent care, many healthcare providers make surgical mistakes, often resulting in serious or fatalities. Sometimes, surgeons make mistakes. Other times, surgery is performed on the wrong patient, or wrong area of the body. Anesthesia errors can also occur, resulting in many different types of severe injuries. For proper representation in surgical error cases, contact our law firm and schedule your free case evaluation with one of our skilled attorneys.
