Medical care today compared to that of 10 years ago is quite amazing. New research and advances in technology have increased medical professionals’ ability to accurately diagnose and effective treat a variety of conditions. Yet, the system is still far from perfect. As was discussed in a post a few weeks ago, sometimes medical errors are made that leave victims with serious injuries. In the worst cases, the mistakes are fatal.
Those who have been harmed by a nurse or doctor error can suffer tremendously in the incident’s aftermath. There may be physical pain and suffering, disfigurement, and financial losses in the form of medical expenses and lost wages. These damages can leave a victim completely overwhelmed and on the brink of financial ruined. He or she may be unable to adequately care for his or her family, let alone acquire the additional medical care he or she needs.
When this is the result of hospital negligence, it is wholly unacceptable, which is why we at Ford Dean & Rotundo strive to give our clients the representation they deserve when they decide to pursue a medical malpractice claim. Utilizing the facts of a given case and applicable law, we craft legal arguments in an attempt to show that the acceptable standard of care was breached and that the breach led to compensable injuries. We also closely assess our clients’ damages and gather evidence to illustrate their extent so that, if a case is won, compensation for the full extent of harm may be awarded.
Filing and succeeding on a legal claim is not easy, though. So if you are considering taking legal action, then you may want to carefully consider your options as they relate to legal representation. A competent attorney, like the ones at our firm, will know how to handle evidentiary issues and ensure that a medical malpractice victim’s voice is heard loud and clear, and that his or her legal interests are aggressively represented.
