The Commitment And Skill To Help The Victims Of Medical Malpractice
When you seek medical attention, you are putting your trust in the doctors, nurses and other health care professionals providing treatment. Although most medical professionals are capable and attentive, there are instances where negligence and avoidable mistakes on the part of medical professionals can inflict serious injuries or other complications on patients.
Mr. Morrell has obtained seven-figure jury verdicts and settlement recoveries for clients who have sustained damages as the result of hospital malpractice by doctors, nurses, specialists or other health care professionals. These cases range from serious brain injuries, birth defects or wrongful death stemming from failing to treat or properly diagnose a patient.
A few examples of the types of cases Mr. Morrell has handled and recovered seven-figure settlements and awards include:
- Brain damage and wrongful death from failing to relieve excessive intracranial pressure following brain surgery
- Wrongful death for failing to diagnose/treat cervical cancer in timely manner
- Brain damage from an anesthesiologist's premature extubation of patient
- Wrongful death for failing to diagnose/treat skin cancer in a timely manner
- Brain damage from failing to treat postoperative bleeding in timely manner
