Protecting You And Your Family After A Medical Error Has Caused Injuries
Medical professionals go through years of intensive training to become proficient and successful at what they do. However, even the most skilled individual can make a mistake or ignore proper procedure. If a medical error has occurred and you or a loved one has been injured as a result, we can help.
At Campbell & Associates, our attorneys and staff are committed to protecting the rights of clients in Buffalo and throughout the surrounding communities. Our firm exclusively handles cases in the area of personal injury, rendering us a highly knowledgeable and reliable advocate in all types of accident and injury cases. When representing people who have suffered losses resulting from medical malpractice, including injuries and the death of a loved one, we are compassionate in our dealing with our clients but aggressive in our pursuit of justice on their behalves.
Holding Professionals Accountable For Medical Negligence
Our lawyers are committed to ensuring that doctors, nurses, therapists, nursing aides, technicians and all other medical staff members be held accountable for their negligent or intentional actions. We confidently handle:
- Surgical errors: There are many checks and balances that occur in the operating room before, during and after a procedure. However, surgical mistakes still occur, including operating on the wrong site or organ, removing the wrong organ or limb, leaving surgical equipment in the patient, errors with anesthesia, injuring other areas of the body while removing an organ or conducting another surgery, medication errors, and others.
- Childbirth injuries: It is especially devastating when a child is injured as the result of a medical personnel’s negligence during pregnancy, labor and delivery. Our firm is sensitive to the needs of parents who are facing childbirth issues involving hypoxia (deprivation of oxygen), shoulder dystocia, Erb’s palsy, misuse of forceps or vacuum, misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose and other matters.
- Other medical malpractice claims: In addition, we also represent clients in a wide range of other medical malpractice claims involving doctor errors, nursing mistakes and medication errors; failure to diagnose and misdiagnosis of cancer, heart attacks, strokes and other medical conditions; nursing home neglect and abuse; and many other types of cases.
A Victory Worth Noting
Our firm was successful in obtaining $4.1 million for Darnell Backus, a 49-year-old Buffalo man. He was injured and became partially disabled during the course of a surgical procedure to remove his kidney for donation to his own mother. Mr. Backus’ attorney at our firm, Colin Campbell, was able to provide evidence and documents detailing how Mr. Backus’ permanent muscle damage and spinal cord injury occurred during the course of the surgery, stemming from the negligence of the surgeon and hospital staff.
This is just one of the many favorable verdicts that our firm has received on behalf of injured clients whose lives have been impacted by the negligence of others.
