Doctors, nurses, radiologists and other health care professionals can be held financially liable for injuries and fatalities that result when they fail to follow standard treatment protocols. When patients present certain symptoms, or when complications arise during surgery and treatment, doctors should request certain tests, conduct diagnostic procedures or prescribe certain kinds of medication. A failure to do so that results in injury or death is actionable.
At Russo, Rosalina & Co., LPA, our lawyers consult medical experts in every known field of medicine when reviewing the actions of doctors, nurses and other medical professionals. We review medical charts, treatment notes and the actions of attending staff in order to expose miscommunication and negligence.
Because medical malpractice cases are aggressively defended, it is important to enlist legal counsel that has experience developing strong cases and knows how to present them. We provide that counsel.
We Handle The Full Range Of Medical Malpractice Cases
We represent clients in the full range of medical malpractice cases, including:
- Birth injuries such as Erb’s palsy, infant brain damage and bone fractures
- Surgical error, including anesthesia errors
- Medication error
- Misdiagnosis of cancer and failure to diagnose heart attack, stroke, etc.
- Hospital negligence
- Emergency room error
Recovering Financially From Medical Malpractice
In order to ensure our clients receive compensation proportional to their injury or loss, our attorneys consult medical economists and life care planners. We consider the cost of future medical treatment, lost wages, medical equipment, and pain and suffering.
We Only Get Paid If You Do
In order to bring a medical malpractice suit, a preliminary finding of physician negligence must be established. Our office can review your case and prepare all necessary paperwork to go forward with your case. We work these cases on a contingency fee, which means we only collect attorney fees if we help you obtain a recovery.
