Representing Clients After Medical Malpractice Or Mistakes
At the Law Offices of John Drew Warlick, P.A., the mission of our personal injury practice is to advocate for the rights of injured individuals, including those harmed by professional negligence. Such negligence, generally called medical malpractice when it occurs in a health care setting, takes many forms. Unfortunately, it is also all too common.
More often than we may wish to think:
- A hospital nurse may give the wrong medication or fail to notice an important change in a patient’s condition
- A harried doctor fails to take the time to really listen to his patient’s complaints and fails to complete a thorough examination related to those complaints
- An insurance company presses hard to have a patient released from the hospital to save money
- One’s elderly loved one fails to receive care from properly qualified staff because the nursing home cut corners to save money by hiring under-credentialed health care providers
Regrettably, situations like these are a breeding ground for catastrophic mistakes at every level and in every area of the health care industry.
Help For Family Members In Cases Of Catastrophic Injuries And Wrongful Death
When medical malpractice leads to catastrophic injuries or to the death of a loved one, family members may be so devastated that they are not aware of all that was happening in their loved ones’ medical cases. They may not question the medical care provided. Because medical malpractice insurance companies require their insureds not to reveal possible negligence, the family may never know that a medical professional failed to uphold his or her duty of care.
Our skilled medical malpractice attorneys have the needed resources to review all the evidence in cases in which an individual has sustained unwarranted injuries or died unexpectedly while under the care of a health care provider or during a medical procedure. Generally, by going through the medical record, we are able to discover whether medical malpractice may have played a role in the tragedy.
