Cases We Handle
Medical malpractice is a broad term for a wide variety of negligent actions committed by a doctor, nurse, or other professional entrusted to provide medical care or treatment. There are many different forms of medical malpractice.
We have the experience needed to take on cases involving:
- Early discharge
- Birth injuries
- Unnecessary surgery
- Botched surgery
- Failure to diagnose
- Misuse of anesthesia
- Misreading or ignoring a patient’s medical history
- Inaccurate medical test result interpretation
- Delayed treatment
- Erroneously prescribed medication
In order to prove malpractice or doctor negligence, the injured person must show that a doctor-patient relationship existed at the time and before the malpractice occurred. The injured person must also show that the doctor was negligent, meaning he or she failed to live up to the standard of care expected of them. Finally, the injured person must prove that the injury they suffered was a direct cause of the doctor’s negligence.
Many victims of medical malpractice have suffered serious and life-changing injuries. Their lives may never be the same. That is why these victims deserve significant compensation. As your medical bills pile up, Frost & Kavanaugh can help you seek justice and the financial compensation you need to move on and recover as much as possible.

- Lost wages
- The cost of the medical treatment in which malpractice occurred

- Physical pain
- Mental distress and suffering
- The cost of follow-up appointments or procedures to fix botched treatments
