Victim Of Doctor Malpractice Or Negligence Involving Health Care Professionals?
Health care professionals undergo years of training and education. They must demonstrate meticulous skill and adhere to uncompromising safety practices. Their responsibilities are so weighty that most must go through an intensive board certification process to obtain and keep up with their licenses. The reason for such strict requirements is obvious: When a patient’s life is on the line, there is no margin for error.
Far too many patients become victims of negligence at the hands of health care professionals. Mistakes, oversights, sloppiness and incompetence can inflict lifelong harm. These forms of negligence can even cost patients their lives, particularly those in an already fragile condition. Errors of such magnitude may not come to light until well after the fact.
As a patient, there is little you can do to identify or prevent them. Only after negligence has been exposed can you begin to struggle through the difficult practical and legal ramifications. By fighting to hold the negligent person or parties accountable, you can strive to make a positive impact on the health care system as a whole.
Speak With A Lawyer Who Will Stand Up For You
At O'Toole Law Firm, LLC, we understand how difficult it is to learn that your health care provider let you down. By causing harm instead of alleviating it, the practitioner has violated the most fundamental tenet of health care, and you are the one paying the price.
Our goal is to help you find answers, pursue financial recovery and seek justice. Applying nearly three decades of legal experience, attorney John O'Toole is not afraid to stand up against the powerful on behalf of the powerless. We routinely represent patients in medical malpractice claims against:
- Obstetricians/gynecologists and other specialists
- Nurse anesthetists (CRNAs)
- Nurses (including RNs and LPNs)
- Nurse practitioners
- Medical technicians
- Physical therapists
While medical negligence can take many forms, many of the cases we handle involve common errors such as:
- Surgical errors
- Medication errors
- Failure to treat
- Failure to obtain informed consent
- Negligent hiring and other forms of hospital negligence
