Medical Malpractice

We trust dentists, doctors and medical professionals to give us excellent care when we are in their treatment. However, what happens when a mistake leads to a serious injury or even death?

If you or someone you know has suffered a critical injury due to a mistake by a doctor, hospital or other health care provider, you deserve to be compensated for your suffering and loss. At Doehling Law, we know firsthand that while nothing can make up for the death of a loved one, the compensation you receive can help you cope and give you one less thing to worry about in life.

Experience In Holding Doctors And Hospitals Accountable

When you enter a hospital for medical treatment, you believe that all the proper steps will be taken to resolve the problem. You and your loved ones 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. Injuries can occur due to:

  • Surgical errors. Errors can happen when surgeons analyze the wrong patient file, work on the wrong body part or leaving foreign objects like surgical tools or sponges in the body.
  • Drug errors. These can occur when patients receive the wrong drug, an improper dosage, dangerous or tainted drugs or drugs they have an allergic reaction to.
  • Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis. This can occur when medical professionals fail to look at test data in a timely manner, schedule tests or refer patients to specialists when necessary.

Medical malpractice can take many forms. When you suffer an injury or illness because of a medical error, we can aggressively pursue the damages you are due.

Investigating Nursing Home Negligence

Elder abuse across Colorado nursing homes is unfortunately not uncommon. If you or a loved one suffered abuse or neglect in a residential or nursing facility, the odds indicate that probably other residents in the facility also suffer similar treatment. Negligent or reckless actions can include:

  • Exploitation or illegally taking, concealing or misusing funds, property or assets of the elderly
  • Negligent care that results in falls, broken hips, bedsores, amputations and even death
  • Sexual abuse or harassment by employees of the facility
  • Physical abuse, including unreasonably restraining a senior

In each nursing home case we undertake, Doehling Law carefully studies the facility's history of violations of both state and federal law to determine 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 investigate whether training deficiencies exist at the facility.
