We rely on doctors to heal us, and most of them do. But sometimes, a mistake or a misstep by a doctor leads to tragic results and the family is left to pick up the pieces, often including the cost of a lifetime of care.
That’s where we come in.
We have helped a number of people hurt by careless or incompetent medical care as a result of:
- Surgical errors, like leaving foreign objects in the body or even anesthesia mistakes and untreated post surgical infections
- Emergency room misdiagnosis or triage mistakes
- Hospital error, like incorrect prescriptions and medication overdose
- Obstetrical mistakes
- Failure to diagnose cancer or other conditions
- Failure to read x-rays correctly
Defective Medical Products
Hundreds of new medical implants, devices and pharmaceutical products get approved for market by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) every year. Although most are perfectly safe, FDA approval does not guarantee that an implant or device is safe for everyone. Physical injuries from unknown side effects and product failure can lead to devastating lifelong injuries.
Time Is of the Essence
In most states, the time in which you can bring a medical malpractice claim is limited by statute. When that time runs out, with it goes your opportunity to recover compensation, including even the costs for the future medical care needed because of a doctor’s mistake or a defective drug or medical device.
