Medical malpractice is something most healthcare providers and facilities are concerned about. It’s also a scary thought for patients. When you go to a doctor, surgeon, or other medical professional, you expect to get treatment that’s safe, effective, and appropriate for your condition. But that doesn’t always happen, and patients can suffer serious and even life-threatening complications due to their providers’ negligence.
At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, our Norfolk medical malpractice lawyers believe that people who were hurt by healthcare professionals deserve to have their voices heard and a chance to pursue compensation. Medical malpractice can result in huge medical bills for patients, and they often suffer debilitating health effects that can result in long-term disability. That means they and their loved ones aren’t getting the paychecks they depend on for everyday living expenses.
However, proving medical malpractice can be difficult. Suffering from a bad outcome after a doctor’s visit, surgical treatment, or other procedure doesn’t always mean that medical malpractice occurred. In addition, medical malpractice can often occur without patients being aware that it happened. Because medical malpractice is so poorly understood and so difficult to prove, it’s vital to have an experienced legal team on your side if you suspect you or someone you love is a victim.
Our attorneys aren’t afraid to stand up to big hospitals and their insurance providers when it comes to getting compensation for our clients. Get the legal representation you and your loved ones deserve—call us today for a free consultation.
