Medical Malpractice — Misdiagnosis and Failure to Treat
When the Doctor Fails to "Do No Harm"
Most of us trust our doctors. Most of us rely on our physicians to tell us if something is wrong and then expect them to point us in the right direction.
If you are doing your part by making an appointment and following your doctor's advice, then you have every right to expect an accurate diagnosis and careful treatment.
I represent individuals who have suffered from:
Failure to diagnose or treat
Mistake during treatment
Negligent follow-up care
When Your Life Has Been Changed By A Misdiagnosis or Medical Mistake
Our health is one of most valued possessions. When we lose it because of the carelessness of the very professional to whom we entrusted this prize, a health care provider should do everything possible to make it right. When you have suffered due to a misdiagnosis, a failure to diagnose a life-threatening condition, or a mistake during treatment, the cost is huge. The effects of poor health and disability permeate our whole lives.
Our work is affected and our capacity to earn diminished.
We are responsible for medical bills that may extend into the distant future.
We suffer physical and mental pain and lose the enjoyment of our lives.
In the worst cases, medical carelessness kills.
When our doctor's carelessness profoundly affects our lives, we need the help of an experienced medical malpractice lawyer.
You Need An Attorney Who Knows the Ins and Outs of a Malpractice Claim
Even when the negligence of a doctor seems obvious, we need to justify compensation within our legal system. Almost always, such proof involves the testimony of expert witnesses to demonstrate both the doctor's breach of the standard of care and that the doctor's negligence caused the harm. Finding and training expert witnesses for trial testimony is a pretty big job. And of course, doctors and hospitals have high powered witnesses of their own. Eventually, though, it's a jury of our peers that decide malpractice cases. So my job is to make scientific evidence mesh with common sense, to make sense out of complicated things.
