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 attorneys at Levine Law helps victims of medical malpractice 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 Attorneys Can Help You Prove Medical Malpractice

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, we 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

As a contractor that represents homeowners who need storm related damage repaired by their insurance company, I see the need for people to have a professional represent them so they can get what is rightfully theirs to repair their home. The same was true when I needed someone to help me in a personal injury situation. I knew that I needed a professional that could fight on my behalf and get me what was needed to make me complete again. Andrew Phillips and the team at Levine Law were incredible! They took the time to listen to my situation and really understand the effects I was dealing with. They handled everything with great detail and sincerity and I really felt they cared for my well being. I hope that nobody has to go through a situation like this, but if you do I would highly recommend Andrew Phillips and the Levine Law Team!
