Help With Medical Malpractice Claims in Oklahoma

Based in Tulsa, The Barkett Law Firm has substantial experience handling litigation involving the health care industry, and has helped many injured patients throughout Oklahoma recover compensation in medical malpractice lawsuits.

Understanding medical malpractice claims

Medical professionals have a duty to provide treatment that meets the professional standard of care in their community; when they fail to do so, they may be liable to patients or their families for resulting damages. Medical malpractice litigation arises when medical procedures, medical devices and prescriptions are handled in a negligent, reckless or incorrect manner, causing injuries to patients. Our personal injury lawyers possess the skill and experience to represent clients in claims involving a wide range of medical mistakes, including:

  • Surgical errors, including leaving a foreign object in a patient's body, operating on a wrong body part, or performing a wrong procedure
  • Birth injuries and delivery mistakes causing birth trauma and disabilities
  • Errors in administering anesthesia
  • Overdosing on pain medication, leading to death
  • Prescribing the wrong medication or wrong dose of medication
  • Colon cancer diagnosis and treatment errors
  • Skin cancer diagnosis and treatment errors
  • Breast cancer diagnosis and treatment errors
  • Failure to fully inform a patient of the risks of a treatment or drug
  • HMO negligence

When people are sick or injured, they expect to receive competent treatment from knowledgeable and practiced physicians and staff. Unfortunately, however, doctors and hospitals sometimes make unacceptable oversights and mistakes that further harm their patients. Our firm understands that such injuries can be especially traumatic because they are caused by the person or facility entrusted with your health.

Please see our pages devoted to nursing home abuse and neglect, surgical errors, birth injuries, paralysis and wrongful death for more information about specific types of medical malpractice cases.

Compensation for injuries

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury or death due to a medical professional's oversight or mistake, you may be able to recover compensation for both economic and non-economic damages. Economic losses often include medical bills, rehabilitation, lost wages, lost earning capacity, and other costs. Noneconomic damages can include pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of society and companionship.

In order to establish damages, you must present expert medical testimony verifying the claims of negligence, unless negligence may be inferred from the facts. Our attorneys understand how to build strong medical malpractice claims, ensuring that all evidentiary requirements are met, so that you may receive the maximum amount of damages available to you under the law.
