PUT EXPERIENCE ON YOUR SIDE
Medical errors and mistakes needlessly kill hundreds of thousands of people every year. What’s more, medical malpractice can occur when hospitals and doctors are more concerned with “business as usual” rather than improving patient care by taking steps to ensure preventable medical mistakes are not repeated.
Medical Malpractice occurs when doctors, nurses, or other healthcare providers give, or fail to give, care that falls below that which a reasonably prudent and safe healthcare provider would under the same or similar circumstances, resulting in unnecessarily harm to their patient. Examples of medical negligence include performing surgery on the wrong limb, incorrectly interpreting a radiology study (x-ray, CT scan, or MRI) which results in a delayed cancer diagnosis, and failing to timely act upon potentially dangerous laboratory results.
In some cases, human error and poor patient outcomes are considered to be known and accepted risks and complications. Mistakes can and do happen. However, many medical mistakes are preventable and those mistakes’ consequences can be dire, if not fatal. If a healthcare provider has been negligent, he or she must be held accountable.
G. Wayne VanBibber has 24 years of experience
in pursuing and winning fair judgments
in Medical Malpractice related cases.
Early in his legal career, Wayne worked at the law firm of Jacobsen, Maynard and Kalur which defended doctors in all 55 counties of West Virginia. It did not take long for him to see how West Virginian’s were often bullied by insurance companies and the big city law firms that represented rich physicians and hospitals in malpractice suits. It seemed the deck was stacked against injured citizens of West Virginia.
Wayne found stacked decks could be taken down card by card — with determination, compassion and extensive knowledge of the law.
Armed with that experience Wayne went on to become Prosecuting Attorney for the West Virginia Board of Medicine. It was solely his duty to prosecute negligent doctors across the state. It was a massive responsibility, lightened by the knowledge he was helping West Virginia citizens reclaim their lives.
Soon afterward, Wayne eagerly opened his private practice where he was honored to represent plaintiffs in Medical Malpractice cases — everyday West Virginians; young and old, successful business people and single mothers. They all deserve experienced, knowledgeable and relentless representation when facing well-funded counsels for wealthy doctors.
