If you have been harmed by medical malpractice in Detroit, MI, we at Goodman Acker P.C. can assist you during this stressful time. If a medical treatment provider causes a patient to suffer a disease or injury by his or her negligent actions or failure to act, that health care professional may be guilty of medical malpractice. Even if a patient already suffers from a disease or injury, the treatment provider may still face liability for malpractice if his or her actions or inactions increase a patient’s risk of harm or causes the condition to worsen.

At Goodman Acker P.C., we handle medical malpractice cases in Detroit and throughout Michigan’s Tri-County Area. We have recovered millions of dollars in compensation during our more than 75 years of experience.

Common Types of Medical Malpractice

Our firm handles a wide variety of medical mistake cases, including the following:

  • Failure to diagnose and properly treat medical emergencies. In emergency situations, prompt and correct treatment is essential.
  • Failure to diagnose and properly treat serious medical conditions. Often symptoms are overlooked or a patient is taken for granted. Sometimes x-rays and other test results are misread.
  • Surgical mistakes. A slip of a knife can cause severe problems. Sometimes medical instruments or sponges are left inside a patient after surgery by mistake.
  • Errors with medication or treatment. A wrong prescription or treatment can cause serious injury or illness.
  • Delays in diagnosis. Many times, diagnostic delay can have dire consequences, especially in the case of various types of cancer.
  • Birth Injuries. Malpractice can often occur during labor. Complications arise that require immediate and proper reactions from doctors and nurses. Cerebral palsy cases sometimes arise as a result of such medical mistakes.
  • Failure to advise regarding diagnosis. A patient has the right to know the diagnosis so that he or she can properly assess treatment options.
  • Lack of informed consent. A patient has the right to understand the risks associated with a particular type of treatment.
  • Abandonment. A treatment provider cannot always simply stop treating a patient, especially in emergency situations.
