Connecticut Wrong Diagnosis Attorneys
Medical malpractice occurs when doctors, hospitals or other healthcare professionals fail to follow accepted standards of care. If negligence is proved, the physician, nurse or hospital can be held liable for the injuries or death of the patient.
At the New Haven, Connecticut, law office of Jacobs & Dow, our medical malpractice lawyers work with nationally recognized medical experts and investigators in exposing negligence on the part of physicians and healthcare providers.

Our Attorneys Begin With a Complete Examination of the Facts
By reviewing X-rays, CT scans, MRI scans, operating room video, medical charts, medication administration records, laboratory records, staff records and eyewitness testimony, we identify symptoms that were ignored, tests that should have been requested, tests that were misread or misreported and procedures that were not followed properly. In reviewing log entries and charts, our lawyers uncover contradictory reports and sometimes falsified records.
