Was your vision damaged because your eye doctor made a mistake?
All medical professions are required to follow certain procedures and safety guidelines that are intended to protect patients from unreasonable health risks. When these guidelines are disregarded — due to negligence, incompetence, or misconduct and a patient suffers harm as a result, health care organizations and practitioners can be held accountable.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice, our experienced trial lawyers can help you hold those responsible for your injuries accountable.
With over 25 years of combined experience, our plaintiff’s attorneys understand the law and standards doctors, nurses, and other health care providers are required to adhere to. We will work hard to investigate your situation and prepare a strong case to present to a judge or jury the link between the violation of those standards and the injuries it caused to you.
We understand that taking legal action against a doctor or health organization can be stressful and emotionally draining for injured patients. But we also know that there is a reason the law allows victims to hold medical professionals accountable for their actions that harm patients. The law entitles victims of medical malpractice to sue for compensation for their losses to help them recover, but the system also works to help enforce medical standards for the community at large. An article by Dr. Barbara Starfield (“Is US health really best in the world?”) published in the Journal of American Medical Association reported that medical malpractice is believed to be the third leading cause of death in the United States behind heart disease and cancer.
You Deserve Personal Attention From Compassionate Attorneys
Large law firms often advertise for personal injury and medical malpractice cases on television. What they do not tell you in those commercials is that they work in bulk and take on so many cases that the majority of clients never even talk to the senior attorneys. Instead, cases are assigned to inexperienced lawyers or even to paralegals who simply seek to obtain a settlement as fast as possible and move on to the next case. Although it is often best to settle — when the settlement offer is fair — there are many situations where filing a lawsuit becomes necessary.
We won’t pass your case off to underlings. Instead, one of our senior attorneys will work with you from the time you call for a consultation all the way through to resolution.
