Doctors, surgeons, and other healthcare professionals swear to do no harm to their patients when they begin their careers. However, they’re human, and that means some of their patients may have poor outcomes—especially after procedures or treatments that are inherently risky. But when medical providers make serious mistakes due to negligence or carelessness, they can and should be held liable for the injuries, illnesses, and complications that their patients face.
At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, our Norfolk medical malpractice attorneys have helped many people whose health problems were worsened or weren’t effectively treated by the people who were supposed to help them feel better. If you or someone you love was harmed by a healthcare provider, it’s important to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible. Health clinics and hospitals are often well-prepared for the possibility of medical malpractice claims, and the sooner we can begin building a claim for you, the better.
In addition, it can be difficult for patients to determine whether their poor outcomes are caused by medical malpractice. Our law firm knows how to collect evidence and interview expert witnesses to find out the difference. Medical mistakes can cost victims for years to come due to additional medical bills and lost wages. Don’t accept what happened to you without speaking to a lawyer—call us today for a free consultation to find out how we may be able to help.
