Medical Malpractice

Hospitals and doctors owe you and your family members a duty of care when providing treatment. A failure to provide reasonable care is medical negligence and may support an honest and meritorious claim if that negligence is the cause of an avoidable injury.

Doctors make mistakes, just like ordinary people make mistakes. While the medical profession is to be respected, it is only fair that doctors be held accountable for their negligence when they cause death or serious injury that should not have occurred.

EXPERIENCE MATTERS

At Feldheim & Wilenkin we have the experience and resources to review your case with top notch medical experts to determine the validity of a claim. We review medical records for the objective evidence that can prove negligence occurred even when the hospital or doctor are trying to conceal that negligence.

The failure to timely act upon lab results or diagnostic studies can be negligence. Many cases are based on the negligent failure to order lab work or other diagnostic studies that were clearly needed. Many times x-rays, CTs and MRIs are misinterpreted resulting in injuries due to a failure to timely diagnose a condition that needed timely surgery.

At Feldheim & Wilenkin we will be happy to talk to you about your possible case. While we cannot promise that you have a meritorious case, we do promise that we will get to the truth of what happened. If your case is meritorious, we will fight to get you the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled under Michigan law.

Does your claim fall under one of the following areas? We can help!

We recently settled a case where an emergency room physician ordered a chest X-Ray for a patient with a bad cough and sent him home, telling him he had bronchitis.  The X-Ray report which was never read by the emergency room doctor was reported as highly suspicious for lung cancer.  The patient died over a year later after the cancer spread.  Our expert proved the lung cancer could have been treated by surgery and radiation before the cancer spread, and the man would have survived.

When it comes to the diagnosis of cancer, a heart attack or a stroke, timing is everything.  If you have lost a loved due to a failure to timely diagnose a medical condition, we can protect your family by helping you file a wrongful death claim.

Many orthopedic and general surgeries are botched due to negligence.  Our job is to identify those instances where surgical negligence has occurred, as opposed to a poor result not due to neglect.
