Every day, people in Connecticut put their lives in the hands of medical professionals. Most people trust doctors to provide health care that is in accordance with current accepted practices. Unfortunately, sometimes doctors fail to do this, causing serious injuries — or worse — to patients.
At Dzialo, Pickett & Allen, P.C., in Middletown, our personal injury attorneys know how frightening, frustrating and upsetting it is to be the victim of medical malpractice. We have the experience and knowledge to help you seek compensation for your injuries or the death of a loved one.
Holding A Hospital, Doctor Or Medical Provider Accountable
When a medical professional negligently deviates from medical standards in a way that causes injury to a patient, it may be medical malpractice. Common types of medical malpractice include:
- Surgical errors, including wrong-site surgery
- Leaving instruments or sponges inside a patient
- Negligent delivery of anesthesia
- Failure to diagnose
Any of these serious mistakes can result in irreparable harm to a patient. Our lawyers have years of experience helping patients who have been injured by a negligent medical provider seek compensation.
Legal Assistance For Nursing Home Negligence
The decision to move a loved one into a nursing home or assisted living facility is not always easy. When you choose a facility, however, you expect that it will provide your loved one with the professional care and attention that he or she deserves. Sadly, some facilities and their employees neglect or abuse their residents.
If your loved one suffered serious or fatal injuries because a nursing home was abusive or neglectful, we can help. We have been assisting people in the Middletown community as well as the areas of Old Saybrook and Hartford for 50 years. We will support you through this difficult time.
