A Law Firm For Victims Of Medical Malpractice In The District

Washington, DC residents go to the doctor or to the hospital expecting to be taken care of. Certainly, medical providers aren’t perfect, but we do expect them to provide an acceptable quality of care. When they fail to meet that responsibility, patients can get seriously hurt.

If you are a victim of medical malpractice, you have rights. The Washington, DC medical malpractice attorneys at the Slocumb Law Firm fight for those rights. We’re proud to hold negligent doctors accountable and get patients the money they need and deserve.

We handle a broad range of malpractice claims

Medicine is a complex field, and medical malpractice comes in many forms. Not every negative patient outcome constitutes malpractice, but whenever a doctor, nurse or other medical provider fails to meet standards of care and causes injury, the patient has a claim for malpractice. Common examples of medical malpractice include:

  • Wrong diagnosis or delayed diagnosis
  • Failing to appropriately communicate with other providers about test results or procedures
  • Medication errors, such as overdoses and harmful interactions
  • Surgical errors, such as leaving objects inside the patient’s body or even operating on the wrong patient
  • Hospital-acquired infections and other hospital injuries

In short, if you believe your doctor or nurse made a significant error that caused you to be injured, you may have a legitimate claim for damages (financial compensation) as a result of that injury. And the injuries caused by medical malpractice can have serious long-term consequences. You may need revision surgery or other expensive procedures. You may be unable to work for a long time. You may have even lost a loved one due to malpractice.

Our legal team fights for injured patients

Doctors and medical providers rarely admit fault for malpractice. That’s where we come in. Our first goal is to get to the bottom of what happened, and we have the resources and medical knowledge needed to get that information for you. Then, we’ll start building your case to get the compensation you need and deserve to rebuild your life.
