Medical malpractice may be defined as a failure by a medical professional to provide a standard level of care to a patient. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Philip Russell, LLC understand the difficulties faced by victims of medical malpractice and their families following a medical error.
Although not every injury sustained due to medical treatment warrants a medical malpractice claim, it is important to review each situation on a case by case basis.
These types of cases can be exceptionally complex and it is important to have the resources available to evaluate and prepare your case. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Philip Russell, LLC work with nationally recognized medical experts, doctors, nurses and other experts.
An injured patient may seek compensation for damages including lost wages, past medical bills, hospital and rehabilitation bills, and out-of-pocket expenses such as home health care and mobility equipment.
To establish future costs, the attorneys at the Law Offices of Philip Russell, LLC will work with medical and economic experts to demonstrate the type of treatment and the costs that will be required in the future.
Additionally, non-economic losses may also be awarded to a victim of medical malpractice. Our lawyers will work to evaluate the monetary value of less tangible damages, such as physical pain and suffering and the future inability to pursue life’s activities. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Philip Russell, LLC will seek compensation for these as well.
Lastly, if we accept your case, you have nothing to pay up front; our fee will come out of the settlement or jury verdict, and only at that time can we be paid.
If you or someone you love has suffered a catastrophic, life-changing injury as the result of the negligence of a doctor, a hospital, a nurse or other medical professional or facility, do not hesitate to call our offices today at 1(203)661-4200 for a FREE consultation.
