Whenever someone goes through a surgical operation they feel afraid about what the ultimate outcome will be. Although your surgeon is not required to be perfect, the surgeon and the other staff involved in your surgery are required to focus on your care, communicate effectively with the other providers, and take prompt and proper action based on the known facts. If any member of the surgical team fails to do any of those things, you may become the victim of medical malpractice. If that unfortunately occurs, you then need to know what you can do to pursue your legal rights to obtain financial compensation for the injuries and damages you suffered as a result of the medical malpractice.
After you or a family member is hurt or filled as a result of medical malpractice, you have a limited amount of time for an attorney to file a lawsuit on your behalf. To start that process, you need to find a top-notch medical malpractice attorney to review your case and to agree to help you. The health care provider is very likely going to deny responsibility, as will their insurance company, so you need an attorney advocate on your side to pursue the money you deserve.
Brian Cummings with Cummings Law is that medical malpractice attorney. He has more than 20 years of experience of successfully handling medical malpractice cases. Brian has obtained over $25,000,000 for his clients in just the past few years, and he makes a point to take on only a select number of cases so that he can dedicate his time and attention to every aspect of your case. At other firms, the attorney whose accomplishments may have drawn your attention often passes you and your case off to other people at their firm who you never would have chosen. That does not occur at Cummings Law.
There are several types of medical malpractice claims, and some of them are:
- Wrongful Death: No amount of money can ever truly replace the loss of a family member. However, Brian Cummings will work hard for you and your family to get a substantial award for you as the law allows.
- Medical Malpractice – physical injury: Many times medical malpractice causes a physical and permanent injury that does not cause death. It could be a surgical injury to an organ, a brain injury as a result of a mistake-induced stroke, or the loss of use of part of your body.
- Diagnostic Mistake: Another example of medical malpractice is when a physician, specialist, or radiologist had information in front of them that, when properly considered, allows for a proper diagnosis to be made, but a mistake in not taking an acceptable amount of time, conferring with other providers, or even looking at the results leads to a diagnostic mistake. When that diagnostic mistake causes an otherwise avoidable injury or bad outcome, that is medical malpractice.
If you or a loved one were the victim of recent medical malpractice, hire the type of lawyer that will make a difference. You will be glad you did.
