Medical Malpractice Lawyers in Birmingham

Helping the Victims of Faulty Medical Care

When you need treatment for an illness, disease, or injury, you inevitably turn to a medical care provider. Because of the extensive training and experience that medical professionals must undergo in order to practice in their field, most people who go to the hospital or visit a doctor count on medical professionals to administer the proper tests and correctly diagnose health problems.

Unfortunately, medical care providers these days are often stretched thin with increasing health insurance constraints and understaffing issues. This translates into mistakes being made that can cause serious injury or even death to a patient. When you trust a medical professional with your health and wellbeing, you rightfully expect that you will be well cared for. If your visit to the doctor or hospital has caused further problems, you have rights and you are entitled to compensation. A Birmingham medical malpractice attorney at Spellen Law can help you seek justice.

When Trusted Professionals Do More Harm than Good

If you have a medical issue, you count on doctors and nurses to improve your health, not worsen it. Whether by negligence, lack of training, or some other reason, these medical professionals have the potential to cause you great harm if they do not perform their jobs correctly.

Common types of medical malpractice include:

  • Nurse or doctor fatigue
  • Surgical mistakes
  • Incorrect diagnosis
  • Failure to make a diagnosis
  • Medical tools that have not been properly sterilized
  • Failure to obtain informed consent
  • Errors in medication
  • Errors in anesthesia administration
  • Medical professionals who fail to communicate with each other

Regardless of the cause, one thing is certain: Patients who have been the victims of malpractice have had their lives forever changed. If you or a loved one has been injured due to a neglectful or careless medical professional, you need to speak with an experienced Birmingham personal injury attorney as soon as possible.

Understanding Alabama's Medical Malpractice Laws

Under the Alabama Medical Liability Act, healthcare providers are legally required to deliver a standard of care that is consistent with generally accepted practices in their specific area of medicine. In the event that a medical professional fails to deliver care that meets this standard, they can be held liable for any harm that is caused to their patients as a result.

Medical negligence cases in Alabama can be brought against:

  • Doctors
  • Hospitals
  • Nurses
  • Dentists
  • Pharmacists
  • Nursing homes
  • Physical therapists
  • Chiropractors

Medical malpractice cases can be extremely complex since they often involve advanced medical terms and concepts that are usually only understood by physicians or other healthcare professionals. Proving that a doctor breached the standard of care typically requires expert testimony from a similarly-credentialed medical professional as well as compelling evidence, making it crucial for you to retain powerful legal advocacy to maximize your chances of success.

At Spellen Law, we have proven experience advocating for patients who have been injured by medical malpractice and helping them seek full and fair compensation for their injuries, suffering, and losses. We are prepared to apply our aggressive legal strategies to your case and help you seek justice.
