Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is a broad category of personal injury law that encompasses birth injuries, misdiagnosis, surgical error, medication error, and other instances in which a medical professional acts in a negligent fashion. It is the responsibility of health care providers to protect the health of their patients. However, sometimes doctors neglect to perform their duties properly, causing serious injury or death. It can be devastating if you are harmed or a loved one is killed as a result of a medical professional's negligence. Victims of negligent doctors can be left with permanent disabilities and psychological trauma. 

When a health care provider, such as a doctor, nurse, or other hospital staff person, fails to take adequate precautions to prevent an injury or fails to provide adequate medical care, that person or hospital may be held liable for medical malpractice.  A lawyer from Lanny Vines & Associates, LLC in Alabama can review your case and determine whether you are eligible to receive compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, medical bills, past and future lost wages, and other expenses.

Birth Injuries

Birth injuries are caused either before, during, or after birth and are the result of the negligence of a health care professional.  Many birth injuries, including most cases of cerebral palsy, are preventable if the doctor takes adequate steps to ensure the safety of the mother and child during the birthing process.  For more detailed information, consult with a medical malpractice attorney from Lanny Vines & Associates, serving Montgomery from our office in Birmingham.

Failure to Diagnose / Misdiagnosis

If a health care professional fails to diagnose and treat a patient correctly, or if that health care professional fails to provide the correct treatment to a patient based on his or her diagnosis, then that health care provider may be negligent.  If you have suffered due to the negligence of a health care provider, it is important to contact our medical malpractice lawyer, serving all of Alabama.  Attorney Lanny Vines has experience in litigating all types of medical malpractice cases, and he will work hard to help you get the compensation you deserve.

Surgical Errors         

Unfortunately, surgical errors are a surprisingly common form of medical malpractice.  Doctors and nurses who perform the wrong surgery, leave a surgical instrument inside the body of their patient, or in any other way endanger a patient's life in the course of surgery may be negligent.  Medical professionals need to be held responsible for their actions, including those that result in wrongful death or severe, debilitating injuries.  If you or a loved one has been the victim of a surgical error and has suffered because of that injury, our medical malpractice attorney in Birmingham can help you bring a lawsuit against the hospital or medical professional who is responsible for your injuries.

Medication Errors

Like surgical errors, medication errors are very common and can be caused by something as simple as a pharmacists' inability to read a doctor's handwriting.  When given improper medications, victims can suffer serious injuries and even death.  Medical malpractice attorney Lanny Vines and his associates in Birmingham fight for the rights of those injured and the loved ones of those killed when medical professionals prescribe or provide incorrect medications.

Prescription Drugs

Every year, some prescription drugs are found to be dangerous and are pulled from the shelves. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration monitors the health effects and safety of prescription drugs and, when they are found to be dangerous, forces manufacturers to recall them. Unfortunately, for some patients it is then too late, as they may have already experienced serious injuries or even death. If you have been injured or have a loved one who has been killed as a result of a defectively produced, prescribed, or dispensed drug, medical malpractice lawyer Lanny Vines in Alabama will fight to see that the pharmaceutical company, doctor, or pharmacist who is at fault is held responsible.

In their hurry to release prescription drugs and reap large profits, pharmaceutical companies can sometimes provide drugs to the public before all of the necessary tests have been performed to ensure that it is safe for its intended use. This behavior is simply unacceptable. Medical malpractice attorney Lanny Vines in Birmingham has the resources and experience to pursue your case and secure compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
