Medical Malpractice & More
At Bogue, Paoli & Thomas, our team of talented attorneys is committed to tenaciously pursuing the claims of seriously injured individuals in the following practice areas: Medical Malpractice; Birth Injury; Personal Injury; Products Liability; and Wrongful Death.
Medical malpractice occurs when a medical practitioner makes an error or fails to properly diagnose or treat an illness, resulting in a patient’s injury or death.
Doctors are not the only people who may be held liable in a medical malpractice claim. Hospitals, hospital staff, nurses, pharmacists and other medical professionals may also be defendants in your malpractice action, depending on what happened and how your injury occurred.
Some of the most tragic cases of medical malpractice arise from injuries that happen to newborns in the delivery room. The neglect can stem from a doctor or nurse failing to notice signs of trouble or to act in a timely manner when emergencies arise. Brain injuries, cerebral palsy, brachial plexus injuries and nerve damage are common birth injuries that can dramatically impact a child’s future quality of life.
If you have been hurt in a car, truck or motorcycle accident, your personal injury may have left you with medical bills and forced you to miss time from work. If your injuries were caused by another person, you may be entitled to money for those damages.
Bogue, Paoli & Thomas helps personal injury clients receive monetary damages for medical costs and lost income (past and future). Most personal injuries occur in vehicle accidents, but they can arise in other situations, such as a slip and fall incident, or injuries suffered on a ski lift.
Companies have a legal obligation to ensure that the products they make will not harm the people who use or purchase them. When an accident or injury occurs due to rushing a product to market, cutting corners or ignoring safety concerns, the company who makes, sells, or offers the product has a responsibility to provide recovery to the innocent victim or their family.
The damages the consumer is entitled to receive may include compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and loss of physical capacity. In certain circumstances punitive damaes may be available.
We trust doctors, nurses, and hospitals to provide quality medical care. Unfortunately, healthcare professionals may fall short of meeting this standard. For example, they may make mistakes in evaluating a patient’s condition, administering anesthesia or giving dosages of medication. In cases resulting in the patient’s death. the surviving family members may have a wrongful death claim.
Surviving family members of wrongful death victims can be compensated for economic losses including loss of financial support.
