Our Attorneys Negotiated a $16 Million Settlement For a Severely Injured Newborn
A delayed Cesarean section caused a baby to suffer a prolonged lack of oxygen in utero. Our lawyer Elizabeth Quick and associated counsel presented evidence demonstrating that the care team should have known that the mother's narrow pelvis would make vaginal delivery impossible. Shortly before the case went to trial, Ms. Quick and associated counsel secured a $16 million settlement for the child.
If the negligence of a healthcare provider has affected you and your family, trust your case to a firm that has proven capable of securing maximum compensation for injured victims.
Am I a Victim of Medical Malpractice?
You were owed a duty of care by the medical professional.
In other words, the medical professional was responsible for providing you with care. For example, you were the doctor's patient, the pharmacist was filling your prescription, or you were a patient within the hospital.
A breach of duty occurred.
This means the medical professional failed to meet an applicable standard of care. For example, a doctor failed to address an urgent need in spite of evidence of that need, a pharmacist dispensed the wrong medication, or a hospital failed to meet sanitation standards.
Personal injury resulted from the breach.Considering the examples above, this could mean that a delayed C-section resulted in a brain injury, a patient was injured due to taking the wrong drug, or a patient suffered an infection in the hospital.
Damages resulted from the injury.
You must prove that losses occurred as a result of your injuries. This could mean that a brain injury resulting from a delayed C-section was fatal, a patient required additional medical care due to taking the wrong drug, or a patient required further medical care to address the effects of an infection that occurred in the hospital.

Matt & Liz Quick are a brilliant team. Their staff is also very friendly, professional, and prompt. I called the Quick Law Group on the suggestion of a friend after I couldn't get anywhere with the insurance company of the man that rear-ended me. I was still suffering years after the accident - I wouldn't settle and out of desperation decided to find an attorney. I am so glad I chose Quick Law Group. Matt and Liz walked me through everything. Answered all of my questions, and I felt such confidence in them after just the consultation. I would recommend them to anyone needing great representation in your pursuit of a fair bodily injury settlement.View on Google
Liz Quick is a brilliant trial attorney. I was the plaintiff in my case and I remember sitting in that courtroom thinking “She is incredible!” She operated with such ease and such confidence in what she was doing that I just couldn’t be anything less than in total awe of her. She also was amazingly pleasant to just be around. When you are feeling as vulnerable as I felt during during the trial, having someone on your side like Liz meant so much.View on Google

Common Types of Medical Malpractice
No one—even a healthcare provider—is above making a mistake from time to time. But if a misdiagnosis results in injury, and it can be proven that the physicians should have been able to properly diagnose the condition and prevent the injury, they could be held liable for medical malpractice.
There are virtually countless opportunities to make a serious mistake during a surgical procedure. Some of the most common surgical errors that can constitute a medical malpractice case include puncturing an organ, operating in the wrong treatment area, leaving a foreign object in the body, and performing surgery on the wrong patient.
Childbirth requires great care on the part of medical professionals in order to identify potential complications, act accordingly, and take every measure to ensure the safety of both the child and the mother. Common birth injuries that can be attributed to medical negligence include Erb's Palsy (nerve damage in the arm, hands, or shoulders) caused by excessive stretching or pulling during delivery, and cerebral palsy caused by preventable oxygen deprivation.
An incorrect dose of anesthesia can have devastating effects, including stroke, heart attack, and brain damage. Our Bellevue, WA, attorneys can collaborate with medical experts to determine if an anesthesiologist's mistake is to blame for your injuries. If so, we can file a medical malpractice lawsuit on your behalf.
A physician has a responsibility to prescribe the correct drug and make sure it won't interact with anything you are currently taking. Pharmacists must take care to prepare the correct drug, and in some settings, nurses must make sure to administer the correct dose of medication at the correct intervals. If errors regarding your medication have caused you harm, our Bellevue, WA, lawyers can pursue justice on your behalf with a medical malpractice lawsuit.
What Should I Do If Medical Malpractice Has Affected Me or a Loved One?
Seek Care Elsewhere
If you have any reason to believe that your physician has made a mistake, change doctors. Your health is always the top priority, and you should do what is necessary to address any symptoms you believe are the result of medical negligence.
Call an Attorney
Once you have taken measures to receive competent medical care, get in touch with an attorney. Our Bellevue, WA, firm offers free consultations, so there is absolutely no risk in discussing your case with us. If we take your case, we will charge no attorney fees unless we secure a jury award or settlement on your behalf. Meanwhile, remember that Washington has a three-year statute of limitations on medical malpractice cases. This may sound like a generous amount of time, but when you are reeling from the effects of medical malpractice, you can trust it will pass quickly.
Save All Records
Any documentation of the care you received from the physician you believe acted negligently should be carefully preserved. If you have these documents in your possession, make electronic copies of them. You should also request copies of your medical records from the caregiver's office immediately.
Keep Discussion of Your Case Between Yourself and
Insurance adjusters may reach out to you after your personal injury. They're not trying to help you—they are trying to gather statements and other information from you that could minimize your claim. If anyone reaches out to you to discuss your injury, put them in touch with your attorney and say no more. Meanwhile, social media is a place many of us like to discuss our lives and vent our frustrations. Don't discuss your injury in any public forum, especially social media, which can be easily monitored by those who stand to lose the most if your case is validated.
