Doctors, nurses and other medical professionals are expected to treat their patients safely and effectively. They go through years of professional training and schooling so that they can help us when we are in need. Unfortunately, doctors and other medical workers make mistakes. These mistakes lead to a variety of negative outcomes ranging from discomfort to death. The medical malpractice attorneys at the Salt Lake City firm of Huntsman | Lofgran, PLLC are willing to take on any doctor or hospital to get our clients justice.
There are many branches of medicine and many people who work in the medical field. All of them make errors that can affect patient care. Every medical professional is held to a certain standard and can be held responsible for certain types of mistakes. Some of the more common types of medical errors include:
Our personal injury attorneys hold doctors, surgeons, nurses and hospitals responsible for their mistakes. If you have been injured, we will figure out what happened and work to prove it in court. We bring suits against all types of medical businesses and professionals, as well as nursing homes and other eldercare facilities in the Salt Lake City area.
The medications patients are prescribed are presumed to be safe and helpful. They are supposed to go through testing before they are given to the public. Unfortunately, many drugs and medical devices still end up hurting people. This is often because the drugs are not tested for long-term effects or because medical devices are allowed on the market without sufficient testing.
Many drugs are also approved for one narrow use but prescribed by doctors for other, “off-label” uses. Drug companies are known to encourage this behavior, frequently without testing the safety of such treatments.
Defective drugs can cause serious, long-term injuries or death. If you believe that you or a family member has been hurt by a drug, an implant or any type of defective medical device, you have rights. Our attorneys won’t back down in our fight to hold drug manufacturers accountable and get you justice.
