CONNECTICUT MEDICAL MALPRACTICE LAWYER TIM MOYNAHAN
Personal Injury: Medical Malpractice
Connecticut Medical Malpractice & Nursing Home Neglect Lawyer
A Connecticut Medical Malpractice Lawyer You Can Trust. 50+ Years of Experience and No Fee Unless You Win.
We can agree that medical malpractice including failure to diagnose, and nursing home neglect occurs more often than it should. When a healthcare provider departs from the “standard of care” and treatment of a patient, medical malpractice occurs. The “standard of care” is defined as what a reasonably careful medical provider would or would not have done under the same or similar circumstances. The question is, was the provider negligent? If you suspect that you or a loved one has been treated carelessly by a healthcare provider (doctor, hospital, dentist etc) and suffered injury as a result, it is important that you consult with me to determine your rights and the best course of action.
What you can expect from me as your medical malpractice attorney
When consulted, I will listen to you, and gain an understanding of your experience. I’ll examine all medical records, discuss your personal situation with other medical experts, interview witnesses to determine whether you have been injured in the course of treatment by a health provider or though nursing home neglect My aim at this stage is to reduce the stress of an inquiry into the medical treatment in question. Then I will decide if a malpractice claim exists based on a provider’s negligence which caused injury.
Examples of Medical Malpractice
- Causing cerebral palsy through head injury or depriving the brain of oxygen.
- Failure or delay in diagnosing major medical conditions e.g. cancer
- Birth Injuries
- Surgical errors: Including leaving foreign objects behind

When a Medical Malpractice Claim is Established
Once medical malpractice has been established, I’ll evaluate the extent of injury or damage. Sometimes the damage is relatively small and sometimes it is catastrophic, leading to serious permanent injury or death. (In case of death, see Wrongful Death Lawyer CT.) After I gather and evaluate all the information, and know the full extent of the injuries, I’ll enter into negotiations to settle your claim for full and adequate compensation. I can’t emphasize enough the importance of an experienced and respected legal negotiator.
At this point I’ll have found out and discussed with you the value of your case based upon your economic and non-economic losses. In the event that your case cannot be settled, after every effort is exhausted, a lawsuit will be filed on your behalf. We will proceed to trial, continuing to use advanced negotiating skills to settle but always prepared to go forward in trial to get you these best result.
