Little Rock Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Medical Malpractice Attorneys You Can Count On
What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical Malpractice, also commonly known as medical negligence, occurs when trusted medical professionals, such as doctors, nurses, and other trained medical personnel fail to provide adequate treatment and cause serious personal injury or loss of income to patients under their care.
When Things Go Wrong in the Worst Possible Way
There are many different forms of medical malpractice, and our attorneys are committed to pursuing maximum compensation, including:
- Improper reading of x-rays
- Transfusion errors
- Misdiagnosis of a life-threatening condition, including breast cancer, colon cancer or cervical cancer
- Surgery on the wrong limb and infections related to treatment
- Birth injury
- Preventable suicide
- Restraint-related injuries
- Burns, falls and pressure ulcers
We also represent victims of health care fraud and HMO disputes. Visit Medical Negligence Q&A for additional information.
Why Is A Medical Malpractice Lawyer Needed For Medical Mistakes?
When a doctor or nurse (or other medical professional) fails to exercise the degree of skill and care that he or she should, that is medical malpractice or medical negligence. When "med mal" occurs, you need a lawyer that knows about medical problems and the law in order to obtain the maximum compensation owed to you as quickly as possible.
What if I Signed a Consent Form?
Health care providers are not given a license to commit medical malpractice or medical negligence simply because a consent form was completed by a patient. Even if you have been made aware of the risks and complications associated with your treatment, your health care provider must still provide the standard of care that is appropriate.
When Should I Contact a Lawyer?
When a loved one falls ill, we trust medical providers such as doctors, nurses and hospitals with their lives. When medical errors occur, such as failure to diagnose, or surgical errors, the impact on the patient and his or her family can be absolutely devastating, particularly if they are denied compensation for their injuries.
In Arkansas, the time limit for filing a medical malpractice or medical negligence is two years. This is less than the three years that is available in most personal injury cases, although there are exceptions for minors injured by acts of medical negligence. To protect your rights, or the rights of a loved one, please contact The Brad Hendricks Law Firm as soon as possible after a medical injury has occurred.
Located in Little Rock, but serving the entire State of Arkansas, the lawyers of The Brad Hendricks Law Firm have been dedicated to holding doctors, pharmacists, hospitals, X-ray technicians, and other medical providers responsible for their injurious actions since 1990.
Working on Contingency
We provide a free consultation to evaluate the facts of your cases, and take all personal injury and medical negligence cases on a contingency basis. Protecting your rights is important to us. If we are unable to recover compensation for you, you owe us nothing. In the meantime, however, we put our resources to work for you by consulting with experts, taking depositions, gathering evidence, and negotiating with lawyers of large insurance firms whose goal is to minimize the amount you recover. That is unacceptable to us, and we stand ready to cover the expense of prolonged, intensive medical malpractice claims.
