Helping You Recover From A Health Care Professional’s Negligence
People put their trust and faith in physicians, nurses, obstetricians and many other medical professionals, probably more than anyone else. Everyone wants to believe that their health care provider will always make the right decision at the right moment, but that’s not always the case. Patients suffer serious illness, injury, disfigurement and even death because of mistakes made by those they trusted with their health.
At Soll Law, we understand the difficulties that come with becoming a victim of medical malpractice. You feel forced to cope with the steep expenses of care, treatment, surgery, rehabilitation and many other costs all by yourself. You are not alone. We work tirelessly and aggressively to hold negligent parties liable, you can trust us to help right the wrongs you’ve suffered.
What Causes Medical Malpractice?
Going to the doctor or the hospital can be a daunting experience in itself. Medical errors complicate an already tenuous situation, further damaging a patient’s health.
Common types of medical malpractice include:
- Surgical errors
- Miscommunications among medical professionals
- Unsterilized medical tools
- Stroke injuries and misdiagnosis
- Mistakes in medications prescribed or administered to patients
- Incorrect diagnosis or the failure to diagnose
- Birth injury
- Anesthesia errors
- Emergency room errors
It is an unfortunate reality that many medical facilities, including urgent care facilities and hospitals, are understaffed and require staff members, doctors and nurses to work long hours with few breaks. This can cause medical professionals to rush through examinations and surgical procedures, as well as skip protocol and make mistakes because they are fatigued.
Righting the Wrong Through Effective Legal Representation
A medical malpractice claim may be filed for an individual who has suffered illness or injury as well as by the family members of a person who has died because of medical malpractice. The law requires victims to prove that the at-fault party failed to meet a recognized standard of acceptable professional care and that this failure led to injuries.
At Soll Law we know how the law works and how to make it work to your advantage.
As your personal injury lawyers, we represent you on a contingency fee basis, which means that you do not have to pay us any legal fees unless and until you win your case. If we win, we are paid a percentage of your recovery as our fee. If you don’t win, you owe us no fees. Unless we agree otherwise, if you don’t win, you owe us no costs either.
Going to Trial
Most cases settle out-of-court; however, if the parties in a medical malpractice case cannot agree to an out-of-court settlement, the case will proceed to trial in a court of law. This can be a lengthy process and the case can be in a state or federal trial court, although most medical malpractice lawsuits are heard in state court, and the decision is subject to review by an appeals court. Adam Soll will be with you the entire way through this process.
