Norfolk Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Representing Norfolk, Newport News, Roanoke & Virginia

When we are injured or sick, we put our lives into the hands of doctors, nurses, and hospital staff. We trust them to live up to the highest standards of medical care when diagnosing and treating our loved ones and ourselves, and we expect that they will do everything in their power to help or heal. After all, the adage “above all, do no harm” is the fundamental essence of the Hippocratic Oath, the pledge of ethics medical professionals follow.

Unfortunately, doctors can and do make mistakes. In fact, preventable medical mistakes injure or kill more than 100,000 people a year, which is more than the number of injuries or deaths resulting from car accidents. At Kalfus & Nachman PC, we are dedicated to holding negligent medical professionals accountable when their actions harm a patient.

Call us at (855) 880-8163 to discuss a claim with one of our experienced Norfolk medical injury attorneys.

Types of Medical Malpractice

When a doctor or other medical professional violates accepted standards of care through carelessness or negligence and causes injury or harm to a patient, medical malpractice has likely occurred. This can happen during diagnosis or treatment, or even during follow-ups and aftercare.

Some of the most common types of medical malpractice include:

Anytime a medical mistake leads to a serious injury or illness, the patient has a right to pursue compensation through a medical malpractice case. If you think you may have a case, contact our medical malpractice lawyers in VA. We can go over the details with you to determine your best course of action.

Medical Malpractice & Wrongful Death

If your loved one has died because of medical malpractice, our Norfolk medical malpractice lawyers can help you file an effective wrongful death claim. We understand that no amount of money can make up for the pain of losing a family member, but a successful wrongful death lawsuit can help bring your family closure by ensuring the situation is fully investigated and the responsible parties are held accountable.

Additionally, a wrongful death case can provide you with compensation for medical expenses, funeral expenses, loss of future income, and other financial hardships you are facing in the aftermath of your loved one’s death.

The Link Between Fatigue & Medical Malpractice

Most people are aware that doctors work excessive hours, going without sleep for stretches of time, and working a high number of hours each week. Sometimes, doctors are “on-call,” a continuous hospital shift where the physician typically gets no opportunity to rest.

One survey reported that 25% of physicians were on-call for over 80 hours per week. Despite new regulations restricting the number of hours a doctor can work without sleep, fatigue and sleep deprivation are still serious problems.
