Medical Malpractice Lawyer in Mobile
Compassionate support when negligence by trusted medical practitioners causes harm
No one can expect his or her doctors to cure every illness or even guarantee no harm from potentially risky treatment. But Alabama law requires all medical practitioners to observe a certain quality of care based on the standards of similar professionals within their community. If you believe you or a loved one suffered harm from substandard medical care, you need the support of medical malpractice attorneys in Mobile with experience representing clients in this particular area of the law. The Law Office of J. Allan Brown, L.L.C. in Mobile has more than a decade of experiencing advocating on behalf of injured patients.
Types of medical malpractice
According to the New England Journal of Medicine, between 1991 and 2005, 7.4 percent of practitioners faced malpractice claims annually, but only 22 percent of all claims resulted in payments to claimants. In an analysis of claims based on medical specialty, claims were highest in neurosurgery and thoracic-cardiovascular surgery (19.1 percent and 18.9 percent, respectively) with general surgery claims representing 15.3 percent of all claims. But in spite of these surgery-related findings, Mobile medical malpractice lawyers regularly help clients injured in a variety of medical malpractice cases, including:
- Diagnostic errors or failure to diagnose
- Surgical errors involving damaging surgical techniques, foreign objects left in patients after surgery or operating on incorrect limbs
- Prescription errors
- Substandard treatment or incorrectly performed treatment
- Errors in prenatal diagnostic testing
How medical malpractice lawyers meet the challenges of highly technical cases
As an experienced Mobile medical malpractice lawyer, Allan Brown recognizes the challenges of obtaining reliable medical evidence when local doctors refuse to assist with claims against local colleagues. But he maintains a network of medical professionals outside the immediate local area who help analyze medical records, explain technical issues and provide courtroom testimony respected by local judges and juries.
Attorney Brown also believes that part of his responsibility as a Mobile personal injury lawyer is to make sure his clients have the time they need to focus on recovery from their injuries. He keeps you well informed throughout the legal process, and you always make your own decisions during your case. He takes on the complex day-to-day details to reduce your stress and allow you to heal.
