Types of Medical Malpractice Cases Our Lawyers Handle

At Mani Ellis & Layne, PLLC, we have the legal skill and knowledge to handle many different types of medical malpractice cases, including those that involve:

  • Emergency room errors – Unfortunately, many harmful errors can occur in ERs due to overcrowding, understaffing and other issues.
  • Missed or delayed diagnoses – When a doctor fails to diagnose a condition, illness or disease such as cancer – even though reasonably detectable signs were present – a patient can suffer serious harm.
  • Birth injuries—Parents have a right to seek justice if their child suffered harm due to trauma or oxygen deprivation during labor and delivery. In some cases, a child may suffer cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy or other permanent conditions due to mistakes by health care providers.
  • Surgical errors – Devastating injuries can occur from surgeons operating on the wrong site, carelessly handling surgical instruments or leaving objects such as sponges inside patients. Mistakes with administration of anesthesia may also occur during a surgery.
  • Medication errors – Harm can readily result from a patient being given the wrong type or dosage of medication. A patient should also be fully informed of all potential side effects before being prescribed medication.
  • Hospital infections Millions of patients suffer serious, life-threatening infections due to unsanitary hospital conditions and staff practices, including MRSA infections.
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect – Too many West Virginia nursing homes fail to provide the care that elderly nursing home patients deserve. Please see our section on Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect for a more full discussion of your rights and options if your loved one has been harmed in a nursing facility.

Additionally, the attorneys of Mani Ellis & Layne, PLLC, are currently reviewing cases involving patients who were harmed by potentially defective IVC blood clot filters manufactured by companies such as Bard and Cook Medical.
