Each year, thousands of children are seriously injured or killed in accidents involving negligence during a hospital visit, playground equipment, slips and falls, and swimming related accidents.
At the law firm of Carleton Spears we are passionate about helping families whose children have been injured or killed through no fault of their own. When children are injured or killed in an accident, the person or company responsible can be held accountable through a lawsuit filed by the parents on behalf of the child.
Medical malpractice typically includes any form of negligence where an injury results from the failure of a medical professional or healthcare facility to exercise a reasonable level of care and skill while treating a patient. The expected level of care may be slightly different for each medical malpractice case. The expected duty arises from the accepted practices of other professionals and healthcare facilities providing similar services, in the same geographical area. An experienced personal injury lawyer will know what strategies to use for your specific type of medical malpractice case in your community.
