Medical Malpractice

5 signs you may be a victim of medical malpractice

When an injury results from medical treatment that deviates from accepted standards of practice, or as a result of negligent doctors, hospitals and other medical professionals, you may be entitled to compensation. Medical malpractice lawsuits can help you recover damages to compensate for your pain, in addition to lost wages and medical bills.

Malpractice claims can be complex or difficult to prove. At Stealey Law and Mediation, we use advanced tools such as computer simulations and real life anatomical illustrations to explain complex medical issues to a jury. We also work closely with qualified medical experts to help with litigation in and out of the courtroom.

Stealey Law and Mediation can handle most medical malpractice cases including those resulting in major medical injuries or death. Medical malpractice often occurs as a result of:


  • Misdiagnosis of cancer
  • Misdiagnosis of cardiac conditions
  • Misdiagnosis in pediatrics
  • Prescribing experimental drugs
  • Performing cosmetic surgery
  • Birth injuries or death resulting from delayed C-section procedure, failure to monitor the fetusĀ  or improper delivery technique
