Oklahoma Nursing Error Attorney
Nurse errors occur when an RN or LPN fails to live up to the basic standards of care expected from an experienced medical professional. These mistakes may lead to serious, life-altering injuries or even wrongful death. If you or someone you love was harmed by a nurse’s negligence, you’ll need the advice and counsel of a knowledgeable medical malpractice lawyer.

We compassionately fight for your best interests and won’t take the easy way out.
Trusting the care you receive when you enter the hospital is the only way to get treatment. Whether you suffered an injury in an accident or are being treated for a serious illness, your care is in the hands of medical staff and professionals, including nurses.
Mistakes and negligence in handling a procedure or everyday care can be devastating. At Clark & Associates, we are experienced in representing clients who have suffered serious injury or lost a loved one because of nursing error.
Expert Resources and Our Complex Litigation Team
Our firm is comprised of an experienced legal team prepared to effectively handle your case.
We are experienced in nursing error and negligence cases or claims involving:
- Failure to follow physicians’ orders
- Failure to notify the physician of a change in condition
- Medication errors
- Surgical mistakes
- Failure to diagnose or treat in a timely manner
- Misuse of a medical device
- Negligence during child delivery/birth injuries
It is the responsibility of nurses to document treatment received, update a patient’s file, and notify doctors of any changes in condition. If a nurse mistakenly reports the amount or type of medication received by a patient, this can be serious or deadly.
Mixing up two patients’ charts can also result in the wrong treatment or surgery for both patients. Our legal team is experienced in complex medical malpractice claims and can effectively pursue compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, long-term care needs, wrongful death, and other personal or financial losses.
