Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Salem

Physicians take an oath to “do no harm,” however, when they fail – and that failure causes damage, injury or death – you are entitled to justice. Medical “mistakes” are now one of the top five reasons that people die every year. Exact figures are difficult to come by, but a reasonable estimate is that medical errors were responsible for injuring or killing around 200,000 Americans last year! Medical malpractice cases are some of the most difficult cases to prove, however. Different from other sorts of personal injury cases, a medical malpractice case hinges on expert testimony and medical evidence. At Shlesinger & deVilleneuve, we believe that if you or a loved one has suffered damaging physical consequences at the hands of a medical health care professional, that professional or institution should be held ethically, legally, and financially responsible!

Medical malpractice cases can fall into various general “types”:

  • Medical error
  • Surgical error
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Lack of informed consent
  • Improper care/delayed care
  • Negligence in long-term health care facilities/nursing homes
  • Medication error/improper drug, dosage, or administration of medication
