Medical Errors Are Preventable and Can Seriously Injure Patients

Every year, thousands of Americans are injured or killed because of medical errors that could have — and should have — been prevented. Medical negligence would rank as the sixth leading cause of death in America if the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention included it in its annual list, according to a study by HealthGrades, a health care research organization.

Pursuing Compensation for Clients Injured by Medical Negligence

At the Law Offices of Steven H. Dorne, our Rockville medical malpractice attorney pursues financial compensation for people harmed by the negligence of doctors, nurses, hospitals, clinics, surgery centers and other health care providers. Our goal is to help our clients receive full compensation for all losses caused by medical malpractice. We are proud of the record of success we have achieved for our clients in this challenging area of law.

We represent clients harmed by a wide range of medical negligence, including:

  • Surgical errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Failure to diagnose cancer and other life-threatening diseases
  • Medication and pharmacy errors

  • Failure to diagnose and treat strokes or heart attack

Helping Families With the Lifelong Costs of Birth Injury

When a doctor makes an error during labor or delivery, the child and his or her family must live with the consequences for the rest of their lives. The physical, emotional and financial costs can be overwhelming. Accomplished medical negligence lawyer Steven H. Dorne is experienced in complex birth injury claims, including those involving:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Brachial plexus injuries (Erb's palsy, Klumpke's palsy)
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Delivery trauma (injuries caused by forceps, vacuum extractors and improper delivery techniques)
  • Negligent management of high-risk births

Promoting a Safer Health Care System for All

By striving to maximize the compensation for each individual client, we hope to achieve a broader goal: making medical care safer for everyone. Large verdicts and settlements for injured clients can encourage health care providers to reassess policies and practices that result in injuries or fatalities to patients.
