When a person enters a hospital or doctor’s office, they expect to be treated fairly and kindly. Worrying about the competency and care of their provider should be the last thing on their mind. However, medical malpractice is one of the most devastating scenarios a patient can endure. Instead of healing, the patient may now have a myriad of other problems keeping them from their normal life. Sometimes, medical malpractice can even lead to death.

Defective Medical Products
If you’re a victim of medical malpractice, you may also be the victim of a dangerous and defective product. For instance, say you needed to have hernia surgery and ended up with a bad bacterial infection because the medical team performing the procedure did not properly clean the surgical equipment. Then, you later find out the mesh material used was defective and needed to be removed.
The unfortunate truth is that something like this occurring is not uncommon. If you or a loved one does end up in a similar position, know that our legal team has the experience and know-how to aggressively seek justice and compensation on your behalf. In fact, we have helped many people suffering from the effects of a variety of dangerous and defective products, such as: 3M combat earplugs, hernia patches, transvaginal mesh, and hip and knee replacements.
Other life-changing products that can negatively affect you include dangerous drugs. While no one can put a price tag on your quality of life, finding a skilled product liability lawyer may help you offset the costs of dealing with any severe side effects and serious injuries resulting from taking a drug.
In fact, an attorney may help find compensation to cover lost wages and missed time at work, as well as assistance covering medical bills and any long term care. Your pain and suffering may also be compensated. All of these forms of recompense are much easier to achieve with the help of a knowledgeable lawyer. Plus, when you seek legal assistance you can focus on getting better while letting the attorneys fight for you.
Medical Care Providers
Unfortunately, some negligent physicians and support care providers who should no longer practice are still in business. When those in their care are hurt, lawyers can make all the difference in standing up for the rights of victims. However, there are lawyers who do not trouble with this tricky part of the law, leaving victims helpless.
In contrast, the Nashville medical malpractice lawyers at Lerner and Rowe do accept these cases, and stand up for those who need their help the most. So, if you or someone you love is injured at the hands of a physician or other type of medical care provider, call Lerner and Rowe right away.
