Professional and Medical Malpractice
Doctors, dentists and lawyers are all expected to adhere to a certain professional standard of care. When they violate that standard, they can put lives at risk. Dental malpractice can cause long lasting disfigurement, disability and chronic pain. Medical malpractice can do the same, in addition to causing spinal cord and brain damage and in many cases, wrongful death.
Many legal malpractice claims involve lawyers who miss the deadlines for filing a lawsuit set forth in the statute of limitations. If you or a loved one suffered an injury, then hired a lawyer who failed to meet that deadline, you may be able to sue for legal malpractice because you have effectively been robbed of your right to pursue the compensation you deserve.
Nursing Home Negligence and Abuse
We expect nursing homes to respect the elderly individuals entrusted in their care. Unfortunately, many nursing homes have lax safety and low standards of care. Elderly individuals can suffer from:
- Neglect: dehydration, malnutrition, unsanitary conditions
- Negligence: falls, medication errors
- Abuse: physical abuse, emotional abuse, theft
While nursing homes usually do a good job of caring for their patients, these incidents of abuse and unnecessary injury are too common. A lawyer can help you hold the nursing home accountable for its actions.
