Medical Malpractice

Holding Doctors and Hospitals Accountable

medicalmalpracticeMedical professionals are not expected to save every life or cure every illness. But they are expected to listen to patients, to follow standard protocols and to “do no harm.”

The legal team of Michael K. Bush and John C. Bush is here to help if your family member suffered serious injury or died because a doctor, surgeon, nurse or technician made a critical mistake. We have the experience and the experts to hold medical providers accountable for the devastation they have caused.

Trial lawyers Michael K. Bush and John C. Bush have advocated for the injured for 30 years, including victims of medical errors. We have obtained notable results in medical malpractice litigation in a range of cases:

  • Diagnosis errors such as delayed diagnosis of cancer or failure to recognize life-threatening conditions
  • Birth injury such as cerebral palsy from delayed C-section or Erb’s palsy from improper delivery technique
  • Surgery errors and complications such as nerve damage, hemorrhage or sepsis
  • Hospital malpractice such as medication mistakes or premature discharge
  • Dental malpractice such as botched procedures resulting in nerve damage, disfigurement or loss of healthy teeth

Medical malpractice lawsuits require a hands-on, all-in approach. The standard for malpractice is very high and these cases are more likely to go all the way to trial. We invest the time, energy and money necessary to secure compensation, starting with professional opinions and testimony of medical specialists, which often make or break a case.

For example, we took up the cause of a middle school girl who was rushed to the hospital for a severe asthma attack. She suffered permanent injury to her trachea (windpipe) from a botched intubation. Our firm advanced more than $140,000 for the necessary experts to secure a trial victory in an otherwise unwinnable case that most law firms would have simply declined.

We know that medical mistakes often result in serious and catastrophic outcomes such as brain damage, nerve damage, paralysis or organ failure, if not wrongful death. Other victims endure needless pain and suffering and are deprived of early intervention that might have limited the damage or extended their life.

We spend the time with clients and their families to understand how their lives are affected, so that we can prepare a compelling case for the jury or the insurance adjusters. We work to maximize compensation for the ongoing medical treatment, nursing care, lost income, pain and suffering, permanent disability, diminished quality of life or shortened life span.
