Bridgeport Anesthesia Errors Attorneys

Our law firm works with medical, nursing, toxicological and pharmacological experts to develop our clients' claims and describe the full extent of the damages our clients have suffered as a result of medication and anesthesia errors committed by health care facilities, hospital staff, nursing homes, and pharmacies.

Deadly Medication Errors Doctors And Pharmacists Make

Medication errors are responsible for thousands of deaths and hundreds of thousands "adverse drug events" each year. These outcomes can occur when the wrong drug or the wrong dosage of a drug is prescribed, when prescriptions are misread, or when patient medical histories go unread.

The Medical Malpractice Process

Establishing a claim for malpractice damages against a medical or pharmacological professional depends on close collaboration between your lawyers and a team of consulting experts from the same professional specialties as those involved in your potential claims. Your claim for medical malpractice damages will be provable in court if our experts find that your loss was caused by a medical error on the part of your doctor, nurse or pharmacist that also represented a violation of an applicable standard of care.

Once we have established your basic right to maintain a malpractice action, our lawyers then develop and present the evidence necessary to prove it to the satisfaction of the defense attorney and doctor's insurers, or when necessary to a jury. Wocl Leydon, has a demonstrated record of success with medical negligence claims throughout the state, including those related to negligence by prescribing physicians, anesthesiologists and nurses administering medications.
