TCB Law has represented individuals and their families in medical malpractice cases against physicians and hospitals who have misdiagnosed illnesses. We have won a case against a physician who has knicked a ureter during a routine laproscopic procedure; a man who went to the ER for knee pain and was overdosed with morphine, dying 24 hours later; a mother who took her daughter for a physical exam and the lab misreading a test and determining that the child had been sexually molested when she in fact had not been; we won against the lab that mixed up the results and hid the findings; a man who had a cut on his foot and went to a podiatrist who failed to notice an infection in the foot, resulting in an amputation of the leg from the knee down.
These are just a few of the examples of medical malpractice cases handled by TCB Law. If you or a loved one have been injured through the wrongful act of a physician, please call TCB Law.
