Miami Medical Malpractice Attorney

We put enormous amounts of trust in medical professionals. After all, they are the ones who keep us healthy and fix us when something goes wrong. Often, there is nobody else to turn to.

But what happens when they make mistakes that cause us further injuries?

Vladimir Tsirkin & Associates is ready to step in and help if you or a loved one have been injured due to a mistake made by a healthcare professional. You deserve to be compensated, so let us get to work investigating what happened. When you need a Miami medical malpractice attorney, we are here for you.

What Is Going On

Many people thought that medical mistakes were just things that happened in movies or on one of the dozens of healthcare dramas on TV. However, Johns Hopkins researchers have shown us that medical mistakes are the third leading cause of death in the U.S., behind only cardiac episodes and cancer.

  • Researchers say that around 250,000 people lose their lives each year due to medical mistakes.

Millions of people survive medical mistakes each year and are left dealing with the consequences of what happened:

  • Extended hospital stays
  • More medical procedures to fix the mistake
  • Disfigurement of appearance
  • Loss of functionality
  • Temporary or permanent disability
  • Emotional and psychological damage
  • Lost income and benefits

Medical mistakes happen with a healthcare professional is careless or negligent in their duties. This does not necessarily mean they had malicious intent, just that their actions were irresponsible. Think about how many medical professionals you see on an annual basis:

  • Primary care physician
  • ER doctors
  • Nurses
  • Surgeons
  • Pharmacists
  • Pharmacy techs
  • Dentist
  • Optometrist
  • Phlebotomists
  • Paramedics

Each of these people had the potential to make a mistake that can cause harm. Some of the most common errors that are made revolve around:

  • Medication errors – this can include giving the wrong medications, the wrong dosages, or not giving a person their meds at all.
  • Infections – healthcare-acquired infections are preventable when medical staff follows proper protocols.
  • Surgical mistakes – this can include things like leaving items behind in a patient, operating on the wrong body part or person, nicking an artery while operating, or miscalculating anesthesia.
  • Misdiagnosis – a misdiagnosis can lead to delayed treatment or non-treatment of emergency or chronic illness or injury.

After A Mistake Is Made

If you or someone you love has been the victim of a mistake made by a healthcare professional, you may need to seek legal assistance to recover the compensation you deserve. Healthcare professionals and the people they work for rarely admit wrongdoing or offer to make things right without someone pushing them to do so. Vladimir Tsirkin & Associates will do the pushing so you can focus on recovering. We will work to recover compensation for:

  • Your medical expenses related to the incident
  • Lost wages and benefits if you cannot work
  • Pain and suffering damages
  • Loss of enjoyment of life damages
  • Punitive damages against those responsible
