Hartford Medical Malpractice Attorney
Investigating Medical Malpractice Claims
Connecticut medical malpractice laws protect patients that are injured or wrongfully killed as the result of medical negligence. All medical and healthcare providers have a legal and ethical responsibility to provide their patients with reasonably safe treatment that meets the "expected standard of care" in their field. When doctors and healthcare providers fail to do this, and injury or wrongful death occurs, they may be held liable for damages under Connecticut medical malpractice laws. Under these laws, injured patients and their families are entitled to damages for their pain, suffering, medical costs, legal fees, financial loss, therapy, rehabilitation, and any additional expenses incurred by the injury.
Injuries caused by medical error can be debilitating, life-altering, and even fatal. At Cicchiello & Cicchiello, our Hartford personal injury attorney can represent clients who have been injured by the following types of medical errors:
- Physician negligence
- Physician recklessness
- Patient neglect
- Failure to diagnose
- Wrong diagnosis
- Delayed diagnosis
- Failure to obtain informed consent
- Prescription errors
- Surgical errors
- Anesthesia errors
- Orthopedic mistakes
- Spinal cord simulator injuries
- Inappropriate conduct by a doctor or another health care provider
- Nursing home abuse
- Birthing errors
It should be noted that just because a patient receives unsuccessful medical treatment, it is not enough to win a Hartford medical malpractice lawsuit. Under Connecticut law, the patient must prove that the doctor or healthcare provider acted negligently, and failed to meet the excepted standard of care, skill, or treatment in his/her field of medicine.
