Des Moines Medical Malpractice Attorneys
A malpractice case is based on injuries from the care or treatment rendered by a medical provider. Medical providers include doctors, nurses, hospitals, psychologists, X-ray technicians and a variety of other medical professionals. At Roxanne Conlin & Associates, P.C., our Des Moines medical malpractice lawyers work with experienced, nationally recognized medical experts in reviewing and analyzing the actions of health care professionals. We identify departures from accepted procedures, miscommunications and recklessness that lead to serious injury or death.
We Handle All Types of Medical Malpractice Cases
In most malpractice cases, injuries occur because doctors and other health care providers fail to follow standard treatment protocols. This can include tests not being performed, poor surgical techniques and diagnostic errors. The attorneys at Roxanne Conlin & Associates, P.C., handle all types of malpractice cases, including:
- Failure to diagnose
- Misdiagnosis of breast cancer
- Cancer misdiagnosis
- Hospital negligence
- Medication errors
- Transfusion errors
- Wrong-site surgery
- Improper reading of X-rays
Tragically, some medical negligence cases may result in fatalities. In these instances, we can help surviving family members file a claim for wrongful death. We understand that no amount of compensation can make up for the loss of a loved one. However, we can help send a message that reckless and negligent actions will not be tolerated.
Dedicated Representation in Birth Injury Cases
Most births and deliveries occur without incident. However, malpractice does sometimes occur. Physicians, midwives or nurses may fail to diagnose or properly treat conditions during the pregnancy. Or a protracted labor and delivery process may result in an impeded flow of oxygen to the child, which can lead to profound injuries. We can help you fight for the full and fair compensation you need in order to move forward with your life.
