Seattle Medical Malpractice Lawyer
What would happen if it were no longer legal to sue your doctor or hospital? Some people actually think that would be a good idea. So when your doctor gets distracted by a joke from a nurse and leaves your baby boy languishing in the birth canal, your child’s life-long battle with brain damage will be merely a sad, unfortunate event.
Despite what some people think, medical malpractice lawsuits play an important role in the improvement of the health care industry. For example, lawsuits over HAI’s (Health-care Acquired Infections) have lead to drastic changes in equipment, disinfectants, and procedures to reduce or eliminate the incidence of HAI’s.
Legal Remedies for You & Your Family
When you are the victim of medical malpractice, it will be you facing the consequences, perhaps for the rest of your life. It isn’t always possible to relieve you of the pain, suffering, or loss of function brought on by the negligence of the hospital or doctor. The system, however, does provide a legal remedy for the physical and emotional injuries, and the long-term financial burdens created by the malpractice.
Receiving the Compensation You Need and Deserve
Typically, the insurance companies representing the doctors and hospital will be reluctant to afford you the necessary compensation for your losses. Their lawyers may even contend that no liability exists at all, leaving you to deal with the injuries and the financial burdens on your own.
Insurance companies and their lawyers that try to deny you the compensation you need to recover from a medical malpractice incident don’t intimidate Matt Menzer. He has many years of experience and is well-prepared to deal with the tactics that the malpractice defendants use to prevent you from receiving fair compensation.
