Medical Malpractice Lawyers in Richmond VA
Medical errors happen. Good doctors make bad mistakes – even in the most reputable institutions with the most highly qualified physicians. These healthcare providers are typically fine people who have dedicated their lives to helping others, but like all of us, they are fallible.
Here’s reality: Medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States. Such errors cause millions of injuries, sometimes quite devastating ones. It can and does happen to anyone, even doctors getting treatment themselves. No matter how meticulous and informed you are, the risk is always there.
If this happens to you or a family member, what do you do?
Frankly, distasteful though it may seem, you may need to consider a medical malpractice lawsuit. For the sake of you or your family, it would be imprudent not to do so, but we also know that it’s not an easy call.
We handle medical malpractice cases – and we are good at it - but we are not anti-physician
We will not take a case unless we are convinced that there was negligence by a healthcare provider which caused a genuine harm. We understand quite well that not all bad outcomes are the product of medical errors. Treatments have complications, sometimes serious ones. We know that doctors didn’t cause the condition they were trying to treat. But too many times we have also seen good families – successful people who have done everything right - confronting a disaster because their healthcare provider did not provide the right care.
When we look at potential cases, we do it with a keen sense of protecting the privacy of those who have sought our advice. Even if we cannot help you, which is often the case, we know you did not make the decision to come to us lightly. You deserve our respect and you will get it.
