Most people want to do a good job at work. Whether you’re a teacher or an office worker, you take pride in your career. If you’re like most people, you might make mistakes now and then; it’s a normal part of life. For doctors, however, mistakes have very serious, long-lasting consequences. Unlike other professions, medicine is a job with an extremely small margin of error. When lives are at stake, there are no do-overs and no second chances.
At LawMD, we know how stressful and demanding the medical profession can be. The reason we know this is because many of our lawyers are also doctors. We understand the rigors of treating patients, handling emergencies, and delivering appropriate follow-up care day after day.
As a law firm, we also understand that medical mistakes change lives. More than any other area of law, medical malpractice has an enduring impact on a person’s future. Your case isn’t about a broken contract or a custody battle—it’s about your most precious possession: your health. If a doctor has broken your trust, you need to be able to put your trust and your case in an experienced lawyer’s hands.
Doctors are revered as some of the most trustworthy members of our society. We count on them to help us when we’re sick and heal us when we’re injured. The truth is that most doctors work very hard to help people. They went into medicine because they wanted to make a positive difference in people’s lives.
Nevertheless, medical mistakes are now the third leading cause of death in the United States. Fatal medical errors outpace car accidents and diabetes as a top cause of death among adults. To put this into perspective, medical negligence causes one-sixth of all deaths in the country. When you consider just how many fatal car accidents occur in the U.S. every year, it’s staggering to think that medical-related deaths are even higher.
When doctors make mistakes, patients should not have to pay the price. A medical error can lead to a cascade of complications, including unnecessary follow-up surgeries, invasive testing, and daily pain. It’s not a burden anyone should have to bear. At LawMD, we strive to make sure you don’t have to.
Our medical malpractice lawyers handle all types of medical mistake cases. Some of our most noteworthy victories include the following cases:
Remember, it’s not just physicians who are held to a high standard of care. Other health care professionals, including nurses, pharmacists, and psychologists, have a duty to provide a certain level of care.
Our lawyers also pursue claims against hospitals and nursing homes. There are currently about 46.2 million people over age 65 in the U.S. By 2060, experts expect this number to rise to 98 million. This means the number of elderly Americans will double within the next few decades.
Unfortunately, nursing homes don’t always treat their elderly and vulnerable patients with the respect and dignity they deserve. In many cases, nursing home abuse and neglect takes the form of medical malpractice. An alarming number of nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities, and step-down units are understaffed. When doctors rush through their rounds or fail to check for drug interactions, an elderly patient's health can quickly deteriorate. As a medical malpractice law firm, we are proud to stand with seniors in their fight to get better, safer health care.
