Was it Medical Malpractice?
Because of the highly technical nature of medical care, and the uncertainties of working with people who are ill or experiencing a medical crisis, it can be extremely difficult to know if medical malpractice was the cause of a catastrophic injury, complications of pregnancy, labor or delivery that result in injury to babies, or unexpected death.
You may feel hesitant to talk to a lawyer because you’re unsure if you were harmed through medical negligence. Consulting a lawyer is the first step in learning about your legal rights. You may find that you gain greater peace of mind by talking to a lawyer who understands both the law and medicine. Give us a call. We may be able to help.
