Medical Malpractice

Seattle Medical Malpractice Lawyer

What is Considered Medical Malpractice in Washington State?

Victims of medical malpractice can suffer major health problems, severe complications, and other lasting injuries and side effects. In some case, acts of negligence or medical mistakes can even cost the patient their life. If your hospital or medical facility failed to provide you with adequate care, or if your nurse, surgeon, or doctor acted negligently, you need to discuss your legal options with a seasoned professional.

If any of the following conditions arise after you received medical care, you may have been the victim of medical malpractice or negligence:

  • A medical treatment or procedure worsened your condition or caused a new illness or injury.
  • The doctors, nurses, or other health care providers refuse to answer questions about your treatment or potential side effects.
  • Your health care provider failed to provide you with a diagnostic test or treatment that should be standard for your condition.
  • Your loved one perished after receiving a treatment or surgery when their prognosis was otherwise positive.

Have you been injured due to medical malpractice or medical negligence? Have you suffered unexpected complications from a surgical or medical procedure where the risks were not properly explained to you? Or, were you misdiagnosed or diagnosed too late to treat your illness or injury? Have you lost a loved one to any of these circumstances? If so, Attorney Rob Kornfeld may be able to help you.

Call Rob Kornfeld now at (425) 657-5255 if you need zealous, effective legal representation for your injuries due to medical negligence.
