Tulsa Medical Malpractice Lawyer
When you see a doctor, you have certain expectations. You expect the doctor to have the proper training and expertise necessary to identify your medical condition and ensure appropriate treatment. You expect the physician, the staff, and anyone else involved to provide you with the medical care and treatment that you need to recover and to take the responsibility to avoid mistakes that could put your well-being and life at risk. Physicians are trained experts, after all, and they have spent years learning their craft. Unfortunately, doctors, nurses, physical therapists, and other hospital staff members are human, and humans make mistakes. These may be caused by simple carelessness, by money-driven cost-cutting measures, or by incompetence.
Whatever the cause, if a healthcare provider’s negligence injured you or a loved one, you have the right to recover for the harm you have suffered. Our Tulsa medical malpractice lawyers have years of experience recovering significant monetary damages for clients hurt by negligent healthcare providers across the State of Oklahoma. We believe Oklahoma residents are entitled to proper medical care and deserve adequate compensation when medical care providers violate the sacred duty they owe to their patients.

Proving Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice matters can be much more complicated than other forms of personal injury. Some instances may be easy to show. For example, if a surgeon leaves an object behind in a patient after surgery, that is clearly a form of malpractice. Unfortunately, other types of medical malpractice can be harder to detect and prove. For instance, if a doctor fails to notice obvious symptoms and does not order the proper tests, a patient’s true condition may be left undiagnosed, or their diagnosis may be delayed. Delayed diagnosis means delayed treatment, which can cause a problem to worsen and lead to additional complications. Also, patients may be assigned an inappropriate course of treatment that does nothing to help the actual ailment, that conflicts with other treatments or allergies, or that makes the problem worse. Proving medical malpractice requires understanding the patient’s condition, the proper diagnostic tools and treatments, and the actions the healthcare provider should have taken, given the patient’s specific circumstances.
