Holding Health Care Providers Accountable for Negligence

We all make mistakes. A simple mistake is not necessarily medical malpractice. When your health care provider makes an avoidable mistake―because of carelessness, stress or fatigue―that results in serious injury or death, you may have a medical malpractice claim that entitles you to compensation.

By evaluating your case and matching you with a medical malpractice attorney who can meet your needs, Thomas W. Lynch & Associates, P.C. helps patients hold health care providers accountable for harm caused by serious mistakes. These include:

  • Causing paralysis or other injuries by making mistakes during surgery
  • Making errors when providing anesthesia
  • Failing to diagnose cancer or another serious health condition
  • Failing to order tests that would have detected a medical condition
  • Prescribing a medication to which a patient has an allergy
  • Giving a patient the wrong medication
  • Waiting too long to perform a cesarean section
  • Failing to protect a baby from harm during delivery
  • Performing unnecessary surgery
  • Misreading an x-ray
  • Failing to explain the risks of surgery or medications

Types of Compensation You May Be Entitled To Receive

If you or your loved one has suffered because of a serious mistake made by your health care provider, you may be entitled to receive compensation for pain and suffering, emotional distress, or even wrongful death.
