Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Our Cody, Wyoming Law Firm Handles Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

Medical malpractice occurs when doctors, surgeons, pharmacists or hospitals injure a patient by providing care that is below what would normally be considered an acceptable standard. As patients, we put our trust and lives in the hands of medical professionals, under the assumption that they will act carefully and responsibly. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. When medical professionals perform their jobs negligently, patients are injured and may even die.

Not every case with a poor outcome is necessarily malpractice, however.  Medicine is not an exact science, and despite major technological advances and even with the best quality of care, complications occasionally occur and treatments are unsuccessful. Medical malpractice arises when a healthcare professional fails to meet the minimum standard of care, resulting in damages to the patient.

Common medical malpractice claims our lawyers represent include:

  • Medical Errors
  • Medication Errors
  • Surgical Errors
  • Obstetrical Errors
  • Birth Injuries
  • Misdiagnoses
  • Delay in Diagnosis and Misdiagnosis
  • Wrongful Death

Bringing a medical malpractice lawsuit

Medical malpractice cases can be very difficult to present and costly to win.  Because the evidence in a medical malpractice case is often difficult to
understand, you need both legal and medical experts on your side. That’s why we’ve assembled an expert team consisting of our own nursing staff and outside medical experts to review the facts of our medical malpractice cases.

Elements needed to prove medical malpractice

Establishing liability for medical malpractice requires a number of legal conditions to be met. These conditions include:

  • The negligent medical professional owed a duty of care to the injured party, i.e. a doctor/patient relationship.
  • A medical professional failed to meet or deviated from an acceptable standard of care owed to the patient.
  • A link exists between the healthcare professional’s negligent act and/or omission and the patient’s injury.
  • Actual damage to the patient occurred.
