Medical Malpractice Lawyers In Birmingham

Seasoned Malpractice Attorneys Representing Injured Clients Throughout Jefferson County & Beyond

When you are injured or ill, you seek out medical care to help you heal or recover. Unfortunately, far too many patients get worse rather than better because of the negligence of doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals.

If you are the victim of medical malpractice, you have a right to recover financial compensation for the damages you have suffered. At the Liddon Law Firm, we help people injured by medical malpractice recover compensation for their pain and suffering, lost income, current and future medical expenses and more. Please contact us to discuss your case. We provide a free initial consultation to review the facts of your case and advise you of your legal rights and options.

A History of Success in Challenging Malpractice Cases

In today’s legal climate, medical malpractice claims are extremely challenging to win. Only people who have suffered serious, permanent injury are likely to be successful in a medical negligence claim. Our legal team can determine whether you have an actionable legal case.

If you choose us to represent you in a medical malpractice lawsuit, you can rely on our decades of experience and record of success. Our personal injury law firm has obtained more than $100 million in financial compensation for clients, including those harmed by medical malpractice.

We represent clients in a wide range of medical negligence cases, including:

Birth injury: Medical mistakes before, during or after delivery can cause a baby to suffer a lifetime of disability and pain. Raising a child with serious physical or mental disabilities can be emotionally and financially challenging. Our attorneys hold the negligent parties responsible. We represent clients whose children suffered birth injuries including cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, Klumpke’s palsy, brachial plexus injuries, shoulder dystocia and other birth injuries caused by negligence.

Surgical error: Errors in the operating room are far more common than many patients realize. While a positive surgical outcome is never guaranteed, no patient should be injured by negligence. We represent individuals harmed by doctors and nurses who performed the wrong procedure, operated on the wrong patient, left sponges or instruments behind, failed to monitor the patient in the recovery room, made anesthesia errors, failed to prevent infection, damaged nerves or organs, failed to recognize and stop internal bleeding and otherwise caused needless harm to patients.

Failure to diagnose, delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis: A doctor who fails to diagnose cancer, stroke, pulmonary embolism and other serious conditions, robs the patient of the ability to benefit from timely treatment. Our founder, attorney Flint Liddon represented a client whose doctor failed to diagnose flesh-eating bacteria. Three times he misdiagnosed the condition as poison ivy.

Hospital-acquired infections: Unsanitary conditions can lead to life-threatening infections at the surgical site or in the respiratory system, urinary tract or bloodstream. We represent clients who developed staff infections, MRSA, pneumonia and other infections caused by negligence.

Emergency room errors: Diagnostic errors are among the most prevalent type of emergency room negligence. Patients with symptoms of heart attack, stroke or pulmonary embolism may be sent home only to suffer a fatal or life-threatening event that should have been prevented.
