Why Do You Need a Lawyer for a Medical Malpractice Claim?

by admin@gotechark.com | March 5th, 2018

We trust medical professionals with our health and well-being. Whether we’re visiting a general practitioner for a checkup or going to a surgical specialist for an invasive procedure, we believe that they will treat us with the care, attention, and respect we deserve.

Unfortunately, medical professionals don’t always uphold their responsibilities and duties to patients. When doctors, surgeons, and other healthcare providers fail to provide adequate care due to carelessness, negligence, or misconduct, their patients can become seriously sick, injured, or even die.

At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, it’s our goal to stand up for the rights of people who were hurt in hospitals, doctors’ offices, and other medical facilities. If you were hurt by a healthcare professional, a Norfolk medical malpractice attorney can help by:

  • Working to prove your healthcare provider caused your health problems – Healthcare providers and the facilities that employ them often deny wrongdoing and negligence. But we know how to collect evidence that can help prove you were hurt by the people who were supposed to make you feel better.
  • Negotiating for maximum compensation – Victims of medical mistakes often face enormous expenses, as they may be unable to return to work and they may need years of additional medical care and surgeries. We’ll calculate how much the mistake cost you, and we’ll fight to help you get the money you deserve.

It’s important to act right away if you were hurt by a medical professional. Evidence can quickly disappear, making it more difficult to get a favorable result. Call us today for a free consultation—we’re ready to get started.
