Each day, many thousands of people visit a hospital or doctor’s office, and thousands more end up having procedures or surgeries performed on them. Usually, everything goes well. However, there are some instances where things derail and unexpected harm happens.
For instance, when a medical professional provides treatment in a negligent manner that results in injury, medical malpractice has occurred. This is the last thing you want to worry about as a patient. Nevertheless, medical malpractice is an unfortunate reality. If you or a loved one suffers harm, including death, while under the care of a medical professional or a hospital, please contact us for a free consultation. You may be eligible for compensation for your injuries and other damages.
Defective Medical Products
Sometimes, patients also suffer injury from defective medical products that may not have originated from their physician’s negligence.In this instance, the manufacturer of such defective products may be held liable in these situations. Without the aid of professional liability lawyers at Lerner and Rowe, you may find it difficult to determine who or what is responsible for your loss.
Examples of defective medical products that could potentially cause injury include certain hip replacements, Nexium, Zantac, INFUSE bone grafts, and hernia mesh implants, to name a few. Luckily, the legal team at Lerner and Rowe has extensive experience going up against large insurance and pharmaceutical companies on behalf of the injured.
Insurance and pharmaceutical companies work hard to defend these claims. They offer nominal settlements, and often offer nothing at all. They are unwilling to accept responsibility. Therefore, you always have to put up a fight to get the compensation you deserve. A medical malpractice lawyer with extensive experience can help you with this fight, seeking the recovery you deserve. Our team of attorneys have handled many medical cases that involved the following:
- Birth injuries (e.g. brain injury, cerebral palsy, fetal distress, and hypoxia)
- Drug overdoses caused by physicians overprescribing (e.g. opioids)
- Emergency Room (ER) errors and negligence
- Nursing staff errors and mistakes
- Surgical errors (e.g. including anesthesia misapplications)
- Pharmacy prescription misfills
- Pathology errors
- Radiology errors
- Nursing home neglect and abuse
Ultimately, in a medical malpractice case, simply determining the “who” can make all the difference with your claim.
How Can a Lawyer Help?
To put it simply: You don’t want to be in the courtroom alone. Not only are most people inexperienced when it comes to medical malpractice law, but insurance companies, hospital and doctor’s attorneys, and other large entities will do everything in their power to prevent you from getting any just compensation. Further, a medical malpractice lawyer can help navigate the complex world of medical malpractice, fighting for the patient’s rights you have and deserve.
The Lerner and Rowe legal team is experienced with cases in all medical malpractice areas, including:
- Cardiology/circulatory system
- Emergency Room (ER) care and treatment
- Neurosurgery/Orthopedic care and treatment
- Nursing home neglect and abuse
- Pediatric care and treatment
- OB/GYN care and treatment
- Hospital care and treatment
- Physician misdiagnosis
When you work with our legal team, we consult top national medical experts to analyze the scope of the damage, and who help determine if the entity that caused your injury is, in fact, responsible. In other words, when our medical experts review your case and agree that a medical mistake occurred, their testimony can be critical to the successful outcome of your case.
We fight to recover damages from hospital personnel, nurses, physicians, surgeons, therapists, insurance/pharmaceutical companies, and other entities who contributed to your injuries. We aren’t afraid to go directly after those responsible for your debilitating and life-altering injuries, including wrongful death.
Medical Malpractice Cases
We at Lerner and Rowe pride ourselves in the many medical malpractice cases we’ve successfully litigated. For instance, our team would be crucial in representing people who suffer injuries similar to those of Susan Siebert in the 2018 case Siebert v. Okun, wherein Rebecca Okun mistakenly punctured Siebert’s uterus and intestine in the process of performing a hysteroscopy.
Additionally, our team has represented people with injuries similar to those inflicted by the infamous David Lawrence Green, the notorious ex-spinal surgeon who has negligently altered and killed many of his patients. Luckily, Green’s medical license was revoked in 2009, and he had to file for bankruptcy resulting from the many patients he harmed.
Not many lawyers practice medical malpractice law, and this fact leaves many patients helpless when their negligent care and treatment results in serious injury or death. Know that you are never alone when you reach out to Lerner and Rowe; our legal team works to take care of you and help you recover to the fullest extent provided by law.
