  • A patient schedules an appointment with their doctor. Although the patient is showing symptoms of cancer, the doctor fails to notice the warning signs. The patient isn’t diagnosed with cancer for six more months. By then, the cancer has spread.
  • Following a routine medical appointment, a doctor orders a medication. However, the pharmacy dispenses the wrong dose. The patient has side effects because of the medication error.
  • A surgeon leaves a sponge or instrument in a patient after surgery.
  • The patient has a chronic condition. A medicine was recently marketed for the condition; however, it is now considered dangerous.

  • After using a medical implantation device, a patient suffers side effects. The device had a poor design.
  • Errors during surgery cause unexpected and avoidable side effects.
  • A doctor who specializes in a particular area of medicine isn’t aware of a rare disease. Because of their lack of knowledge, they fail to make an accurate diagnosis. A doctor with similar training and skill should know about that disease and should have recognized it.

“I was not sure about hiring Bachus & Schanker at first or any attorney. A close family friend recommended their services after medical bills began to add up. From my early stages to just recently when a staff member reached out just to see how I was doing, I was and still am extremely impressed with Bachus and Schanker and their devotion to exceptional customer service. Highly reccomneded.” – Garry Fisher 5/5 Stars
