When you are sick or injured, you put your trust in the hands of your medical care providers—but a single mistake can change your life forever. At The Decker Law Firm, we believe that being a lawyer, much like being a doctor, is a helping profession. We’re here to help people, and when medical professionals betray your trust, we’ll challenge their failures. You don’t have to fight a medical malpractice case alone.
What is a Medical Malpractice Case?
Medical malpractice cases include lawsuits involving:
- Preventable Birth Injuries
- Failure to Diagnose Cancer and Other Disease
- Surgical Errors
- Anesthesia/Medication Errors
- …and more
Plaintiffs may receive compensatory damages, which may include money for injury-related pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages and loss of earning power. In some situations, punitive damages may also be recovered.
Why You Should Call a Lawyer
Unfortunately, medical malpractice can be very difficult for plaintiffs to prove. In order to recover the best settlement or verdict, you should seek an experienced attorney to explain the medical and legal issues to the jury and judge.
