Psychiatric Malpractice Lawyers Washington, DC

Psychiatric Malpractice Lawyers Washington, DCIf you or a loved one has suffered because of the negligence of a DC psychiatrist or psychiatric facility, it may be in your best interest to discuss your situation with psychiatric malpractice lawyers in Washington, DC. 

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.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
