Medical Malpractice

contextualMedicalWhen an illness or injury results in a trip to the hospital, it is natural to feel assured that the doctor’s years of experience and training will result in excellent treatment. But physicians, nurses and other staff are all human, and mistakes are always possible. If a negligent act or omission by a medical professional has resulted in damage or harm, you may have a viable medical malpractice claim. Studies show that 100,000 patients per year die in hospitals as a result of medical errors.

Mississippi Birth Injury Attorneys

At the law firm of Stevens & Ward in Jackson, Mississippi, we provide skilled representation to the victims of medical malpractice. We understand that while medical malpractice laws are designed to protect patients, it can be difficult to obtain the financial compensation they deserve. We are well equipped and prepared to take powerful opponents all the way through the court system to make sure you get what you deserve. We are centrally located in metropolitan Jackson to serve your legal needs statewide

Our attorneys and staff provide one-on-one service and aggressive representation to the victims of medical malpractice. This includes pursuing claims resulting from:

  • Birth injuries, including injuries to the mother
  • Amputation of the wrong limb
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Drug prescription mistakes
  • Misdiagnosis of cancer, stroke and other ailments
  • Surgical errors
  • Other complications

In addition to pursuing claims against medical professionals, we also have experience seeking claims against hospitals for improper care such as problems with medications, sanitation or nursing care. We can also handle claims against local, state and federal agencies that operate hospital facilities.

Again, tort reform laws have horribly complicated and minimized compensation for these claims. We have great insight on our state’s medical malpractice laws as one of our attorneys was the legislative chairman of the Trial Lawyers Association during the special legislative session when these laws were passed in 2002 and 2004.

If you believe you have been harmed by medical negligence, it is important to consult with an attorney who can help you determine whether your claim is worth pursuing. We have taken these claims all the way to the Supreme Court and are ready to help you get everything you are entitled to under the law. Contact us today for a free initial consultation.
