We rely on our doctors, nurses, and other medical practitioners and caregivers to treat us when we are sick or injured and help us stay healthy. However, not every experience is positive and not every health care provider is looking out for your best interest. In fact, hospital medical errors are one of the leading causes of death in the United States.
If you or a loved one did not receive adequate care, and it resulted in additional injury, including permanent disfigurement, paralysis, or death, you need an experienced medical negligence attorney to help you get the compensation to which you may be entitled. Our medical negligence law firm has the experience and knowledge you need to advocate on your behalf and provide you with legal representation to get the compensation you deserve.
Understanding Medical Negligence
Medical negligence occurs when a healthcare provider – which can include dentists, nurses and therapists as well as doctors – fail to meet certain minimum standards of care while providing medical treatment to a patient. This can lead to a worsening of an existing condition, infection. paralysis, and even, in the worst cases, death.
However, without a medical malpractice attorney, it can be difficult, sometimes even impossible, to get compensation for your bills or your lost wages. Often, they do not want to admit to wrongdoing or negligence. In the case that an insurance company does offer a settlement, it’s important to note that they are working for their client and to reduce their own costs, rather than helping you get the settlement you need and are entitled to.
Because the statute of limitations in medical negligence cases is short, it’s important to bring your claim to our attorneys as soon as possible.
