MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CLAIMS REQUIRE PROFESSIONAL ATTENTION
We go to doctors and medical professionals for accurate diagnoses, quality care, and, hopefully, to feel better. However, it doesn't always work out that way. In some cases, those professionals – physicians, nurses, assistants, orderlies – can cause further injury. Fortunately for patients, the legal system has developed procedures and rules to help determine who should be liable for injuries sustained while receiving medical care, known generally as "medical malpractice." Medical malpractice liability can occur due to a flawed diagnosis, improper treatment, or even treating a patient without proper permission.
When doctors and nurses do not follow standard procedures, the results can be devastating, including lasting injury or death. Medical professionals are accountable for their mistakes, but medical malpractice lawsuits are very expensive and very difficult to win. You need to start with the right attorneys to have any hope of recovering compensation.
The Law office of Steven York has the experience and the resources to take on medical malpractice litigation. Members of our legal team have unique medical backgrounds that help us evaluate, investigate and prove malpractice claims.
A bad outcome of medical care or even a loved one's death is not necessarily malpractice. There is a high threshold to prove that the medical staff deviated from the standard of care. As one of the best medical malpractice firms in US, we have recovered compensation for all types of medical negligence:
• Birth injury
• Surgery and anaesthesia errors
• Medication errors
• Failure to diagnose cancer or urgent conditions
• Hospital malpractice
• Nursing home negligence
• Wrongful death
Why you must choose The Law Office of Steven York
Potential medical malpractice claims must go through a medical review panel — three physicians who practice in the same specialty or related area of medicine. We prepare a package that explains the case. The panel determines whether there was a breach in the accepted standard of care. If the panellists are unanimous in finding negligence, the medical providers may be willing to settle the claim. If the panellists are split or vote thumbs down, the claim may or may not be worth pursuing.
Our highly qualified lawyers have the ability to objectively review potential claims and the resources to pursue a good case all the way to trial if necessary. We have attorneys that has 20 years of experience in medical malpractice litigation. Some attorney’s undergraduate degree in microbiology, pre-med and experience in the medical community also help us explore and manage malpractice claims. We also have an experienced paralegal who only handles medical cases.
