It is difficult to estimate the number of people who are injured or who suffer a wrongful death due to poor medical care and medical errors. According to NPR, an initial estimate released by the Department of Health and Human Services put the number of people killed by hospital medical errors at 98,000. Yet, a later report in the Journal of Patient Safety suggested that as many as 440,000 patients are harmed in hospitals each year. For families and victims, the effects of these injuries can be devastating, costly, and life-altering. Families have a right to seek compensation for medical malpractice. Unfortunately, without careful investigation, many medical malpractice cases go unreported, and justice is never served.

If you have received negligent care from a doctor, nurse, hospital, or other medical provider,The Bowling Christiansen Law Firm may be able to help. The Bowling Christiansen Law Firm is committed to providing medical malpractice patients with compassionate counsel that aggressively pursue doctors, hospitals, and providers who make mistakes.

Types of Medical Malpractice Cases We Handle

The Bowling Christiansen Law Firm handles a range of medical malpractice cases. Here are some of the cases we take on:

  • Failure to diagnose. Doctors miss obvious warning signs, misdiagnosing patients or releasing them from medical care too soon. There have been many cases where patients who were having a heart attack were released from the hospital, only to suffer a later wrongful death due to misdiagnosis. There have been other cases where patients develop metastatic cancer because their doctor failed to catch the obvious warning signs that could have led to an early cancer diagnosis.
  • Surgical errors. Surgery is not risk free, and not all poor surgical outcomes are the results of improper performance of procedures. But some are, and the lawyers at The Bowling Christiansen Law Firm have the training and experience to determine which surgical injuries warrant legal action.
  • Prescription drug errors. With some medicines, even a small dosage error can lead to serious damage. Sometimes doctors prescribe the wrong drug, or they prescribe the right drug but in the wrong dosage. In other cases, doctors fail to take into account possible deadly drug interactions.
  • Misread test results. Misread test results can lead to misdiagnosis, improper treatment, and injury and sometimes even death. There have been cases where a patient’s results got mixed up and two patients received improper treatment.
