Medical malpractice claims address personal injuries from a healthcare provider’s negligence that cause injury to a patient.

Most any type of healthcare practitioner can contribute to harm, a(n):

  • physician;
  • surgeon;
  • nurse;
  • dentist;
  • pharmacist;
  • outpatient clinic;
  • hospital; or
  • pharmacy.

There are a variety of negligent acts that could lead to a medical malpractice claim:

  • failure to diagnose;
  • leaving a surgical instrument inside a patient;
  • using contaminated medical equipment; and
  • mixing up medications.

Slip and falls may occur on someone else’s property. Whether it’s a private residence, a business, or a government entity, if there was a dangerous condition that caused someone to be injured, the victim may file a claim if the property owner or manager was negligent.

Some examples of factors that could contribute to slip and fall accidents include:

  • a railing that gives way;
  • broken stairs;
  • wet floors without signage; and
  • poor lighting.

Dog bites: when a dog bites or attacks, the owner may be liable. There are specific dog bite laws that determine one’s right to seek compensation. These types of cases can be difficult to prove because victims must prove the dog was previously deemed dangerous and that he or she did nothing to antagonize the dog.
