Our law firm, Parker Pallett Slezak & Russell LLC, has extensive experience in all forms of medical malpractice. Whatever your injury, we are here to help. Here are some specific examples of our most common types of cases that medical practitioners brought to court by their patients.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is a wide-open field. This includes a variety of injuries to our clients. Common areas of medical malpractice include:

  • Prescription errors – Doctors are required to provide safe and effective prescriptions. Prescriptions that include incorrect dosages, medications that clients have known allergies to but are prescribed anyway, or prescribed for a non-approved usage are all actions that can leave a doctor open to liability.
  • Misdiagnosis – Doctors are all trained for diagnosing medical conditions. An incorrect diagnosis and treatment will leave a doctor open to liability for these actions.
  • Needless or ineffective treatments by your medical practitioner.

Dental Malpractice

Dental malpractice is becoming more common as the scope of dental practice has extended to new procedures in the last few years. Dental malpractice includes

  • incomplete treatments
  • needless treatments
  • use of treatments that harm patients such as some whitening techniques
  • and harmful surgical procedures.

Surgical Malpractice

Surgical malpractice includes

  • surgeries that are not really needed
  • procedures that are performed without true consent
  • surgeries on the wrong area of the body
  • operations that leave equipment such as sponges behind
  • and surgeries that are performed with incorrect anesthetic procedures

Birth injuries

Birth injuries occur when

  • a doctor delivers a child in an incorrect manner for the child’s prebirth condition
  • poorly performed c-sections
  • causing infection in the mother or baby during delivery
  • and failure to provide necessary care to the newborn after birth
  • injuries that occur when the child is passing through the birth canal.
