Alabama Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Birmingham Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Medical Malpractice

It is difficult for anyone to accuse a medical provider of malpractice. We all want to believe the healthcare community does not commit negligence, but most of our medical malpractice clients come to us because something went wrong in a medical setting that should not have gone wrong, and they have suffered a serious injury.

At Riley & Jackson, P.C., we handle medical malpractice cases involving
physicians, nurses, hospital, paramedics, and other actors in the health-
care community when the evidence establishes that malpractice occurred.
We offer a free initial consultation to determine if you have a valid case.

In Alabama, medical malpractice cases are governed by the Alabama
Medical Liability Act (AMLA). This law applies to cases against all types of
health care providers, including physicians, physician assistants, nurses,
hospitals, pharmacists, imaging technicians, respiratory therapists and a
variety of other health care specialties.

Although medical malpractice can occur in a number of circumstances,
some of the more common examples are:

  • Misdiagnosing a potentially fatal or harmful condition
  • Surgical errors
  • Post-surgical infections without timely intervention
  • Birth trauma
  • Misreading radiological film
  • Medication errors
  • Unsafe medical devices
  • A nurse failing to notify a physician of a change in a patient's condition
  • A nurse failing to follow a physician order
  • Inadequate fall-prevention safeguards

Ours is one of the few Alabama law firms that includes an attorney who is also a practicing doctor. Dr. Francois Blaudeau provides our firm with access to a vast network of experts with whom we consult on medical malpractice cases. Dr. Blaudeau reviews all of our firm's medical malpractice cases and is an important team member who helps our clients' cases.
