Trauma Surgeon Malpractice
Hospitals are responsible for the work their employees do. So, when a hospital employee (such as doctor, nurse, resident or aide) commits malpractice, the hospital should be held accountable. At The Donahey Law Firm, with office throughout Ohio, we focus on successfully representing the victims of trauma center and trauma surgeon errors.
Our team of experienced lawyers, paralegals and support staff uses extensive experience and in-depth knowledge of the law on medical malpractice to help our clients put forward a strong case for recovery. Our record of success speaks for itself. Since 1968, we have helped injury victims win tens of millions of dollars in jury verdicts and settlements. We focus on continuing this record with every case we accept.
What Is Trauma Center Malpractice?
Trauma center malpractice happens when staff at a hospital trauma center engages in negligent treatment of a patient, which causes harm to that patient. Hospital staff includes more than just doctors. It includes nurses, pharmacists, residents, technicians, laboratory personnel and other employees.
Trauma center malpractice can take many forms:
- Trauma surgeon errors
- Misdiagnosis/mistaken diagnosis
- Failure to properly monitor a patient
- Failure to properly treat a patient
- Failure to refer a patient to the right specialist
- Failure to order the right diagnostic tests
- Medication errors
Expert Testimony in Medical Malpractice Cases
Medical malpractice cases often come down to a battle between experts. At trial, attorneys for the medical malpractice victim will introduce testimony by well-qualified experts. These experts will give their opinion about what should have happened in a situation and how the hospital's actions fell short. The other side uses experts too. Hospitals and their insurance companies often come to trial armed with experts to testify that things were done correctly.
At The Donahey Law Firm, we have been serving clients for more than 40 years. During this time, we have developed relationships with a network of knowledgeable and well-respected experts. We often consult with these experts to help us build strong cases. And their testimony at trial has helped us achieve a record of success.
If you suspect that medical malpractice may have happened to you or someone you care about, you should ask — you need to ask — the difficult questions. Let us help you ask them.
