It is a tragedy that many people in the United States that have mental health problems do not have access to adequate mental health care and treatment. Unfortunately, even people who do have access to this, can be harmed by the health care provider(s) that are supposed to be helping them. When a person seeks treatment from a licensed mental health care provider, they have the right to expect a level of care that meets professional standards. If a Washington, DC psychiatrist, psychiatric facility or other healthcare provider fails to meet the accepted standard of care, it may be a case that psychiatric medical malpractice lawyers may be able to help you file.

If you or someone you love has suffered because of psychiatric malpractice, you and/or the victim’s family may be entitled to compensation.

Psychiatric Malpractice

When a patient is harmed by a healthcare provider’s failure to adhere to a professionally acceptable standard of care in treating their patient(s) it may be considered medical malpractice. This harm may be a direct result of something the healthcare provider does such as prescribing medication or performing a surgery that the patient does not need or the harm may be more passive such as a healthcare provider’s failure to diagnose a problem.

Making a strong case for a Washington, DC psychiatric malpractice claim can be difficult to do without the help of lawyers that are experienced with successfully defending the rights of psychiatric malpractice victims and their families.

Mental health diagnoses and treatment is often difficult even for the best and brightest psychiatrists. This is one of the reasons that psychiatric malpractice can be difficult to prove. For psychiatric patients and their families that suffer because of the patient’s mental health issues, it may seem like one or more doctor is at fault for not being able to treat them properly. Sometimes it is and sometimes it isn’t.

Discussing your particular situation with reputable Washington, DC psychiatric malpractice lawyers may help you to determine whether or not you have a claim that is worth pursuing in court.

The following are some unfortunately common situations that give cause for psychiatric malpractice claims:

  • Sexual abuse
  • Sexual relationship between mental healthcare provider or workers and patient
  • Verbal abuse
  • Physical abuse
  • Threats and intimidation
  • Abandonment
  • Unnecessary use of restraints
  • Medication abuse – improperly prescribing medications and/or withholding prescribed medication  
  • Confidentiality violations
  • Failure to diagnose and/or misdiagnosis

Psychiatric malpractice can result in physical and/or psychological harm and in the worst-case scenarios, can even result in death.

This was an awesome experience with Brittney Cassiere, Miriam Calisher, and my attorney Jill. What made me select Cohen & Cohen for my case, was my experience many years ago with Kim Brooks-Rodney. I definitely recommend anyone to use them. They have your best interest at hand.

I am very satisfied with the services provided by Cohen and Cohen. They were able to settle my case within less than a year and settled a fair amount in which I was expecting. They communicated very well throughout the process as well as made sure all boxes were checked off to ensure i received the best care and communication. I will recommend the services to anyone in these situations. Riley and Brittney were certainly very helpful during the process.

Lucas Baudry was my rep for this accident claim, and even though I had LOADS of questions and was a bit impatient, he was always responsive and quick to reply. We’re wrapping up now, and I really feel like he tried to have the best results in the end, and didn’t drag it out more than need be.
