Holding Negligent Nurses And Doctors Accountable

When you leave a loved one to the care of hospital and nursing home professionals, you have every right to believe that his or her safety of health will be paramount. However, when a nurse's or doctor's negligence causes your loved one's condition to worsen, you should seek to hold the responsible parties accountable through experienced, compassionate legal representation.

We stand up for our injured clients and their family members. You can rely on our hard work and passion throughout the course of your legal proceeding. We take our cases on a contingency fee basis, which means you will owe no attorney's fees unless we collect compensation for you.

The Responsibilities Of Doctors And Nurses

Physicians and nurses have varying degrees of responsibility and duties of care to their patients. The nursing home's doctor is primarily responsible for patient health, care, treatment, safety and well-being. This includes ordering appropriate tests, accurate interpretation of lab results, timely instruction of staff, and utmost alertness to any signs of abuse or negligent treatment of residents.

Nurses are trained and authorized to take prompt action any time there is a change in a resident's condition. If a dangerous condition goes unreported or untreated, the results can be catastrophic, and the nurse may be held negligent.

Skilled Representation For Family Members Who Have Lost Loved Ones

When doctors fail to prescribe and dispense accurate medication, fail to properly prevent and treat pressure sores, fail to properly perform a surgery, or when nurses and nurse's aides fail to recognize signs of neglect or abuse, a patient's health could suddenly decline and may prove to be fatal. In these cases, our attorneys can represent family members in wrongful death actions. We understand that nothing can make up for the loss of a loved one. However, we can send a message that negligent actions will not be tolerated.
