ARE YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW OR LOVE THE VICTIM OF MEDICAL MALPRACTICE?
The number of people injured, disabled or killed by negligence or medical malpractice on an annual basis is astounding.
Not all accidents are actionable—but when a physician, hospital or other health care provider fails to meet standards of medical practice, or has committed a negligent act, serious injury, impairment, and even death may result. Physicians, hospitals and all health care providers are required to provide care that meets certain minimum standards. This includes doctors, nurses, technicians, radiologists, pathologists, anesthesiologists, pharmacists, physical therapists and other medical providers, each of whom may be responsible for causing harm. When these healthcare providers fail, patients and families can suffer significant injuries.
Medical malpractice may result from a variety of malpractice or negligence by medical personnel. The claims we handle include:
- Birth injuries
- Diagnostic errors
- Misdiagnosis/Failure to diagnose
- Surgical errors
- Hospital negligence
- Physician errors
- Emergency room errors
- Prescription overdose and medication errors
- Radiology negligence
- Nursing home neglect and abuse
- Anesthesia negligence
Attorney Turndorf understands the emotional and financial strain that can result from harm caused by medical malpractice. If there is any good news, it is that all medical malpractice cases are taken on a contingency fee basis. You will pay no attorney's fees unless he obtains a verdict or settlement on your behalf.
Timing Is Critical
The statute of limitations for starting a medical malpractice claim is short and therefore timing is critical. If timing is wrong, the law may prevent you from starting a claim.
