In Case Of Suspected Medical Malpractice, Work With A Serious Trial Lawyer
Medical malpractice, a complex legal field, requires detailed knowledge of the law as well as a deep understanding of recognized standards in the practice of medicine. Potential medical negligence actions must be evaluated to determine if the physician delivered substandard practice. If so, the next step is to determine if that practice was a direct cause of harm to a patient.
Through the history of our firm, the attorneys at Ward & Glass, L.L.P., have represented many clients who were injured or lost loved ones because of medical errors. In the process, we have built relationships with Oklahoma medical professionals who contribute valuable expert opinions and insights. With their confirmation of medical malpractice and a thorough review of your medical history, we can devise a strategy to help you recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering.

Failure To Diagnose And Delay In Diagnosis
When an individual seeks medical treatment, he or she does so with the belief that the doctor will perform the necessary diagnostic tests and make the correct diagnosis. If inappropriate tests are ordered, results are misinterpreted or a diagnosis is delayed due to indecision, serious injuries can occur. Misdiagnosis in the doctor’s office, emergency room or any other medical setting can lead to serious complications or wrongful death. If you or a loved one has suffered a worsening condition or unnecessary injuries because a medical professional failed to properly diagnose the problem, contact our firm.
Injuries, infections, cancers, strokes and heart disease, if left untreated, can lead to consequences that might not have occurred had the conditions been treated on time. A patient, then, may unnecessarily experience consequences that might have been prevented, such as pain, needless surgery or even death. If you or a loved one has suffered because of a misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis, we will fight to hold your doctor accountable while seeking monetary compensation for your losses.
