Have You Been Injured By A Medical Professional?
No one ever expects going to a doctor will make their condition worse. You go for a diagnosis and treatment that will help you get better, or at the very least, not become worse. Medical malpractice is always unwelcome and is the result of negligence on the part of a doctor, nurse or other medical professionals.
Our attorneys at Gagliardi Law LLP can assist if you or a loved one has been subjected to medical malpractice. We have decades of combined legal experience with medical malpractice and other personal injury cases and we can help you evaluate your situation and determine if a lawsuit is warranted by your facts.
Violating A Standard Of Care
Members of the medical profession are expected to provide care that meets the standards of their profession. When a doctor or nurse falls below that standard, medical malpractice has occurred. These are complex cases, as it may be difficult to distinguish. Our experience allows us to examine these often-confused facts and when malpractice is apparent, we create strong, compelling cases for our clients to recover the compensation they deserve.
What Damages Can Be Recovered?
The goal of any medical malpractice case is to make the patient “whole.” This is often achieved by the award of money damages. We know that money alone is often inadequate, as the violation of trust caused by malpractice is difficult to overcome. But compensatory damages, which cover your direct economic losses, like medical expenses, doctors’ bills, lost wages while you are out of work, and other medical expenses related to your injuries.
Working For Genuine Justice
We also work to demand change in procedures when the malpractice was the result of poor systems or supervision of process and procedures. Many victims of medical malpractice want an acknowledgement by the caregiver that they committed an error and while make real changes to their ways of doing things to prevent others from experiencing a similar injury.
