Medical Malpractice Claims We Handle

If you or a loved one has injured by medical malpractice, it’s reassuring to know you can put your trust in MN Law. We have extensive experience handling, litigating and resolving cases of medical negligence. We’ve help clients harmed by birth injuries, failure to diagnose cancer or other serious diseases, surgical mistakes, treatment delays, and medication errors.

Failure to Diagnose/ Misdiagnosis

The failure to diagnose or the misdiagnosis of medical conditions is a frequent source of medical malpractice cases in Connecticut. MN Law has pursued failure to diagnose cases involving:

  • Various forms of cancer, resulting in death.
  • Infections in children or adults resulting in death.
  • Eye conditions resulting in permanent vision loss.
  • The failure to diagnose a heart attack.

Wrongful Death

Under Connecticut law, the estate of an individual who has died due to the negligence of others may recover the cost of reasonably necessary medical, hospital and nursing services. Wrongful death cases often involve a very complex calculation of economic damages.

In pursuing a wrongful death matter, it is extremely important that you select a firm like MN Law. We handled medical malpractice cases many times. Our financial experts know how to calculate the damages in your case.

We successfully resolved a wrongful death claim against a primary care physician and a physician’s assistant who failed to properly read an electrocardiogram (EKG) and failed to diagnose a heart attack in elderly woman.

Surgical Negligence

MN Law attorneys have successfully pursued surgical negligence claims, including:

  • The failure to remove surgical instruments and sponges,
  • A mistaken severing of nerves during surgery
  • The severing of internal organs during a surgical procedure.

These cases are complex and nuanced. The experts we use can help establish what truly happened. MN Law has assembled a qualified team of medical experts who can evaluate your claim while build your legal arguments.

OB/Gyn Negligence

The failure to timely perform C-section deliveries resulting in oxygen deprivation and brain injury or death is a frequent type of OB/Gyn negligence case. The medical malpractice lawyers at MN Law have investigated and handled many birth cases. We have the skills and depth of experience needed to promptly and accurately evaluate claims and effectively represent you and your family.

Cases we have successfully resolved include:

  • An $850,000 settlement for the death of an unborn child due to a physician’s failure to diagnose and treat the mother’s pre-eclampsia.
  • A confidential settlement against hospital and surgeon over a negligently performed episiotomy.

Nursing Home Negligence

Nursing homes are often understaffed or run by poorly trained and poorly supervised workers. Contact us immediately if your elderly loved one suffers from malnutrition, dehydration, bedsores or unexplained bruises or other injuries. Prompt legal assistance is essential to effectively investigate claims and protect your family members.
