If something unexpected happened during surgery or treatment, could it have been medical malpractice? A bad outcome is not always caused by negligence. A case review by an experienced attorney is the only way to get clear answers. Physicians rely on drug companies and medical device manufacturers for safe products. There are times when a physician uses an implant – such as transvaginal mesh to treat pelvic organ prolapse or hip hardware – that later fails. This may not rise to the level of medical negligence, but it could be a product liability lawsuit. Whether it is a medical error or a defective product, we are skilled at pursuing these claims.
Fighting Medical Negligence
The trial lawyers at Conway, Londregan, Sheehan & Monaco, P.C., have the expertise to identify all potential issues. We represent clients in New London and across the state of Connecticut.
In analyzing whether a provider met the applicable standard of care in each case, we consult with health care professionals. This is because Connecticut state law requires a doctor or nurse in the same or similar field to conclude that negligence most likely occurred before an attorney files a medical malpractice case.
Our skilled trial lawyers consider the medicine in relation to legal standards when determining if a claim exists. When there is evidence of negligence, we have the experience to fight for fair compensation. We have taken on powerful hospitals, nursing homes, and insurance companies, and we will continue to do so that others do not suffer similar incidents in the future.
Examples of cases include:
- Failure to diagnose a condition or post-surgical infection or complication
- Surgical errors such as operating on the wrong body part or leaving a foreign object
- A birth injury that may lead to cerebral palsy and Erb’s palsy
- Nursing home neglect related to cutting corners and staffing reductions
- Failure to order proper diagnostic tests
