Attorneys Fighting For Medical Malpractice Victims And Their Families

Every time we see a doctor or check into a hospital, we are placing our trust, our health and even our lives in the care of medical professionals. Most of the time, this trust is both earned and rewarded. But when doctors act negligently and in violation of their duty of care, the harm they cause can be especially devastating.

At Cooper Sevillano, LLC, we are passionate about pursuing justice for victims of medical malpractice or neglect. Although these types of cases can be lengthy and complex, we are dedicated to providing skilled legal advocacy to help clients claim the compensation and dignity that they deserve.

Comprehensive Representation For All Types Of Medical Injuries

Our firm is ready to investigate your claim to determine what went wrong and who was at fault. Some of the most common types of cases we see are described below.

Amputation Injuries

Injuries resulting in amputation are necessarily life-changing and debilitating. You may be unable to work and require a long period of rehabilitation. In the wake of your injury, there are also very real emotional consequences that must be addressed. We help our clients pursue damages for their medical expenses, pain and suffering, and financial losses. Our attorneys work with our clients closely to understand the full impact of their injury on their lives and the ongoing challenges they are facing.

Birth Injuries

Medical negligence during labor and delivery can permanently alter the lives of entire families before the baby is even born. Many birth injury claims are related to physical trauma and/or oxygen deprivation. If there were problems during your baby’s birth resulting in severe injuries to the baby, the mother or both, our legal team will work tirelessly to determine what went wrong and whether the harm could have been prevented.

Defective Drugs

When you and your family take medication, it is supposed to make you feel better. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Sometimes things can go terribly wrong. Your physician may prescribe the wrong medication or may prescribe a medication for off-label use that leads to illness or injury. They may prescribe the wrong dose or overlook dangerous interactions the drug may have with your other medications. The pharmacist may misfill your prescription with the wrong drug, may provide you with the wrong dose or drug interaction information, or may give you the wrong person’s prescription. In the worst cases, your medication itself may be defective. Mistakes such as this may lead to serious injury or even death. We will investigate the cause of your injury and explore all avenues of recovery, including from the physician, the pharmacy or even the pharmaceutical company.

Hospital Malpractice

Unfortunately, errors in hospitals are a regular occurrence, leading to serious injury, prolonged illness or even death. Staff and medical professionals may work long hours, leading to a mistake. You may be seen by numerous medical professionals who fail to document your care or communicate effectively with one another. Doctors, nurses and other employees may be poorly trained or supervised. Hospitals owe a duty of care to their patients to protect them from harm, and should be held liable when they fail to do so.

Medical Malpractice

When you seek medical care, you trust that the medical professionals you encounter will provide proper treatment. When these professionals make mistakes, the consequences can be devastating, leading to serious injury or death. As a result, you and your family may suffer lifelong disability and economic hardship. Our experienced legal team is dedicated to obtaining fair compensation for such victims and their families in cases of negligence, misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis. We are committed to preventing future medical injuries by aggressively pursuing those medical professionals and facilities responsible.

Misdiagnosis

When a medical condition has been misdiagnosed, crucial time is lost, which means loss of potential treatment options, loss of quality of life and – in the worst instances – even death. If you or someone you love has experienced a misdiagnosis leading to lack of treatment or delayed or incorrect treatment, the doctor at issue can and should be held responsible.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries are among the most debilitating and may lead to lifelong disability or even death. Spinal cord injuries result when there is damage to the vertebrae, ligaments, or disks of the spinal column or to the spinal cord itself caused by a sudden, traumatic blow to the spine. Such injuries often leave you unable to work or in need of long-term hospital care and rehabilitation. In addition, in the wake of such an injury, very real emotional consequences must be addressed. Spinal cord injuries may also be life-altering for the victim’s family members, who may have to adjust their lives to care for a loved one. Although spinal cord injuries may occur in any type of accident, the most common causes are motor vehicle accidents.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries are among the most debilitating and may lead to lifelong disability or even death. They are generally caused by a blow or bump to the head that disrupts normal brain function. Traumatic brain injuries range in seriousness from “mild” to “severe” depending on the amount of time the victim is unconscious. Understand that even mild traumatic brain injuries are very serious injuries. Traumatic brain injuries can lead to headaches, dizziness, memory loss, impaired cognitive and language ability, and impaired senses such as sight and hearing. They often impact the injured victim’s emotional state, leading to significant changes in personality or depression.

Vaccine Injuries

Thankfully, adverse reactions or injuries from vaccines are relatively rare. However, when they do occur, the consequences may be devastating, leading to serious injury or even death. Your health care provider may administer the incorrect vaccine or may fail to properly identify or treat an allergic reaction or illness resulting from the vaccination. In the worst cases, the vaccine itself may be defective. We will investigate the cause of your injury and explore all avenues of recovery, including against the physician, medical practitioner, pharmacist or pharmaceutical company. In addition, you may have the right to compensation under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), a no-fault alternative to a traditional liability suit brought in the United States Court of Federal Claims.
