Patients trust their doctors, pharmacists, nurses, and other care providers to provide excellent care. Most health care providers are highly skilled caring professionals. Unfortunately, this is not always true. The health care system does not always do a good job of weeding out the bad care providers. In these cases, the justice system needs to step in to hold accountable the careless and reckless to protect future patients. Our lawyers have successfully handled cases involving the following forms of medical malpractice that may occur at clinics or hospitals:
- Medication errors (a major focus of our firm)
- Surgical errors
- Nursing negligence
- Failure to diagnose
- Injuries during pregnancy and delivery
- Delayed diagnosis
- Lack of informed consent
- Anesthesia errors
- Patient neglect and nursing home abuse
When the most vulnerable in our community are injured by the very people and institutions we trust to protect them, they deserve skilled, determined, and aggressive advocates working on their behalf. Our firm has attorneys who have devoted the majority of their practice to prosecuting nursing home negligence and medical malpractice.
From prenatal care to a baby’s precious first breath and through pediatric care, our firm is committed to holding physicians and hospitals accountable when they injure or kill a baby or child through carelessness, inadvertence or inattention. Our firm only takes those cases that are most egregious, because we believe it is our job to protect the children in our community who have been wronged.
When children of any age are killed by professional neglect, our firm will help the family find accountability and answers. When children are grievously injured, our firm is committed to obtaining the resources from the responsible people and institutions to help that child overcome the injuries they have been forced to endure. Our attorneys have years of experience in this field, and have the resources and medical knowledge required to handle these complex cases.
Our Loved Ones
When your partner experiences nausea, chest pain, and shortness of breath, you rush your partner to the local emergency room and place your loved one in the care of the physician and hospital. There is no choice but to trust that the physician and hospital will do their job and take care of your loved one.
Suppose your loved one is discharged with little or no testing and told it’s just acid reflux and anxiety. But in the parking lot, your loved one suffers a fatal heart attack. This is just one example of a situation that can occur when physicians and hospitals fail to do their job.
Our firm is dedicated to finding justice for these families. With each case, we send a message to the physicians and hospitals that they must do their jobs. We try to prevent such carelessness from devastating more families in our community.
At some point, many of us will face the tough decision to place our parent in a nursing home. We understand what a difficult decision this is, and how much trust you must place in a nursing home to care for your parent.
When a nursing home abuses that trust by neglecting your loved one, the results are devastating. The defense tactics used by nursing homes in these cases is even more disturbing and egregious, as they attempt to excuse their conduct and neglect by suggesting that he/she wouldn’t have lived much longer anyway, among other equally offensive schemes.
Our firm believes that each day is precious, and that the last breath in life is as important as the first. We believe our parents and elders have an absolute right to be treated with dignity and respect, and a life is valuable no matter the age. There is no excuse for a nursing home to not bother to give an elderly or disabled person basic necessities such as water, nutrition, and basic care. There is no excuse for a nursing home to allow our loved one to lie in their own urine and feces until they develop skin ulcers and infections. There is no excuse for a nursing home to shorten staff and put profits over the people entrusted in their care.
Our firm is passionate about sending a message to these nursing home corporations that our community will not accept this type of neglect and abuse. We will hold these nursing home corporations absolutely accountable. We value the comfort, dignity and lives of our parents and elders.
