Utah/Nevada Medical Malpractice Attorneys

It is often said that Utah has some of the best health care professionals in the world.  In fact, physicians in Utah are generally well educated and highly trained, so it is reasonable to expect the best medical treatment and professional competence. It is comforting to know that most medical professionals exceed these expectations and work honorably for their patients.  A very few do not, and in that case it is you—the patient—who suffers the consequences.  If you suspect that you or someone you know may have been the victim of shoddy medical care or even medical malpractice, leading to serious injury or wrongful death, then please give us a call.  We would love to help.

Trust an Experienced Utah Medical Malpractice Lawyer

If you have been hurt or someone you love has been seriously injured or killed by medical malpractice, you need a trusted lawyer to effectively represent your interests. Physicians and insurance providers defend medical malpractice claims with vigor. For doctors, medical malpractice liability exposes them to prohibitively high insurance premiums, and jeopardizes their medical licenses and professional goodwill. Insurance companies simply take a hit to their bottom line profit margin. The incentive to settle your claim for pennies on the dollar or defeat it in court is there for all defendants in medical malpractice and they will leave no stone unturned in defending their bottom line.

Types of Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice claims can be brought for a variety of reasons. The following are a handful of some of the more common grounds for medical malpractice claims in Salt Lake City and surrounding areas:

  • Lack of informed consent − patients must be given the information necessary to make an informed decision about their treatment
  • Incorrect procedure − surgeons sometimes perform the right operation in the wrong place, or perform the wrong operation all together
  • Erroneous diagnosis − physicians make the wrong diagnosis when symptoms and test results indicate otherwise
  • Adverse outcome − the course of treatment chosen by physicians is frequently unsuccessful, leaving patients worse off than before
