When you are ill or injured and seeking treatment, you trust the health care providers and specialists to accurately diagnose your pain and provide options that will help you make the fullest recovery possible. Distractions, additional work or breach of protocol should never prevent this from happening. When mistakes are made, however, the results can be devastating, or even deadly.
Representation Following Medical Negligence
At the Shanks Law Firm, we advocate for patients and their families when a physician or health care provider fails to properly treat a medical condition or misdiagnoses an illness, particularly when it leads to further harm or pain to the patient.
We will carefully evaluate the details of how the mistake was made. It is not uncommon for errors to be made if a doctor or nurse has been working longer than the allotted period of time or has not taken enough rest leading up to his or her shift. Many other times, mistakes will be made simply as an oversight or as details get lost in the shuffle of overwork. These errors can include:
We are familiar with these types of harm, and we are equipped to immediately step in to the case and begin building a case on your behalf.
Medical malpractice laws are in place to give the patient a form of recourse following negligence of doctors. Our attorneys speak on behalf of these clients, giving them a voice and a way to find closure for the pain they have experienced.
