Colorado Springs Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Print Page

Doctors take an oath promising to practice medicine honestly and to commit no harm, but not all physicians live up to that obligation. Despite their training and the trust placed on them by the public, doctors, hospitals and other healthcare providers routinely make mistakes that put the lives of patients at risk. When healthcare providers act in an unreasonably careless way or fail to live up to their professional obligations, they can be found liable for medical malpractice.

Patients injured by medical malpractice and the family members of those who have been injured can take legal action against the healthcare provider who hurt them. The experienced Colorado Springs medical malpractice lawuers at Levine Law helps victims of medical negligence recover the compensation they deserve.

Examples of Medical Malpractice in Colorado

Medical malpractice can take many forms and any behavior on the part of a healthcare provider that falls short of the provider’s professional obligation can lead to a malpractice claim. For example, claims for medical malpractice may arise when:

  • A doctor fails to diagnose a patient with an illness despite obvious symptoms.
  • A physician misdiagnoses a patient with the wrong medical condition.
  • Lab test results are misread.
  • Mistakes are made during surgery, including surgical tools left inside of patients or performing the wrong surgery.
  • A doctor orders unnecessary procedures to improve his own profits.
  • A care provider fails to order tests when symptoms indicate that testing is in order.
  • A doctor operates on the wrong patient or the wrong body part.
  • A hospital has unsanitary practices that lead to infection.
  • A hospital is not careful in its hiring practices and hires staff that do not provide proper care.
  • The wrong dose of medication is administered by a physician or healthcare professional.
  • A doctor or care provider fails to obtain informed consent.

These are just a few examples of wrongful acts or omissions that could lead to a charge of medical malpractice. If you believe that a healthcare provider may have made a mistake that led to your injury, you should consult with an experienced medical malpractice lawyer to determine if you have a claim.

Our Colorado Springs Medical Malpractice Lawyers

To make a case for medical malpractice, you must demonstrate that the healthcare provider violated his duty of care to you as his patient and that you were injured by this negligence or mistake.   It can often be challenging to prove that the health care provider was to blame, so you will need solid evidence to settle your case with the doctor or malpractice insurer, or to prove your claim in court.

At Levine Law, our Colorado Springs medical malpractice lawyers will help you gather the evidence you need to prove your case, including expert testimony from witnesses who can explain to the court what the medical professional did wrong.  With the help of an experienced attorney, you will have the best chance of proving your case and obtaining compensation for medical bills; lost income/wages; pain and suffering; emotional distress; and wrongful death.

Hear What Our Clients Have To Say

I had a consultation with Sarah after my first car accident. I had no idea what I was doing, but she thoroughly reviewed my claim and explained how the process works. She let me know all of my options and explained the strengths and weaknesses of my case. At all times, she carried herself as a professional and gave me the reassuring sense that she would do everything in her power to help me. I ultimately did not pursue the case, but it was an excellent experience.
