Everyone Makes Mistakes

We trust dentists, doctors, and other medical professionals to give us excellent care when we are in their treatment. However, what happens when they may have made a mistake that leads to a serious injury or even death. If you or someone you know has suffered a critical injury due to a doctor's mistake, error from a health care provider or hospital mistake, you deserve to be compensated for your suffering and loss.

We know first hand that nothing can make up for the death of a loved one, the compensation you receive can help cope and give you one less thing to worry about in life.

Types of Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice can come in multiple forms and Doehling Law wants you to know that you are not alone and that we handle all types of medical malpractice matters.

Nursing Home Negligence

Elder abuse in Colorado nursing homes is starting to become a common problem. If you or your loved one are victims of abuse or neglect in a residential or nursing facility, odds are that probably other residents in the facility are also being neglected or abused.
In each nursing home case we take on, Doehling Law carefully studies the facility's history of violations of both state and federal law to determine if there is a pattern of neglect. We also turn our focus on the staff and do a background check to see if they have negligent tendencies. Then we can look at if there are any training deficiencies.

Nursing home neglect and abuse take a variety of forms:

- Exploitation: Illegally taking, concealing or misusing funds, property or assets of elderly.

- Negligent care: Failure to provide acceptable care, resulting in falls, broken hips, bedsores, amputations, and even death.

- Sexual Abuse

- Physical abuse: Inflicting injury or physical pain or unreasonably restraining a senior.

Doctor and Hospital Errors

When you enter a hospital for medical treatment, you believe that all the proper steps will be taken to resolve the problem. You are your loved one hope for healing. Nobody expects the care to end up in further injury or even premature death. Yet every year, patients are harmed due to the negligence of a nurse, doctor, or hospital.

- Surgical Errors: Which can happen when the wrong patient file is analyzed, when the wrong part of the body is worked on and when foreign objects such as surgical tools and sponges are left in the body.

- Drug Errors: Which can occur when patients receive the wrong drug that could damage them, prescribed improper dosage, dangerous or tainted drug, or drugs they should have never had because they are allergic to them.

- Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis: This can occur when there is a failure to look at test data in a timely manner, a failure to schedule tests or failure to refer or recommend a specialist when necessary.
