Doctors, hospitals, and other medical practitioners make mistakes. These mistakes can lead to long-lasting and devastating injuries to patients and their families. We have represented individuals for injuries received when their doctors, nurses or hospitals have failed to treat them in accordance with the current standard of care. We have even pursued claims against nursing homes to properly staff their facility or for their failure to assist their residents in going to the bathroom or other movements when required. We have also pursued and recovered large awards for pharmacy errors in dispensing the wrong prescriptions to a patient.
These sorts of cases frequently require a medical opinion from a similar practitioner before suit can even be filed. It is thus critical to find an attorney to pursue your claim as soon as possible to allow the attorney sufficient time to gather your medical records and to find a healthcare practitioner who will opine that the treatment received was not in accord with the appropriate standard of care.
