The experience of medical negligence is a devastating one. Our clients have suffered terrible losses. Some have lost spouses or children. Some have suffered disabling injuries. Some have suffered brain injuries. Some are even facing impending death.
There are many kinds of medical malpractice: birth injuries, wrongful death, delayed diagnosis, botched surgery, failure to diagnose, medication errors, failure to treat, patient abandonment, overdoses, wrong site surgeries, airway and ventilator mismanagement, mis-read x-rays, CT scans, MRIs and mammograms. Likewise, errors may be committed by physicians, surgeons, dentists, physical therapists, nurses, hospitals, EMT’s, paramedics, psychologists, psychiatrists, nurse anesthetists, up to and including every sub-specialty within the field of medicine. Regardless of the setting, the actor, the specific nature of the error or omission, the test remains the same: was the practitioner as reasonable and prudent as was appropriate under the circumstances.
At Robbins & Curtin, we recognize that medical malpractice litigation is never easy. Experience and expertise are required. Cases have to be carefully screened for merit. A thorough investigation is the next step. The case must be honestly evaluated by highly-qualified experts in the fields at issue.
We have a proven track record of success in medical negligence cases. That success arises from the fact that we pick cases very carefully, prepare them thoroughly, and litigate them aggressively. As a result, many, if not most, of our medical malpractice cases settle before trial, with favorable results for our clients. Those that don’t are tried with all the dedication, skill and experience that we can bring to bear. We are proud of our successes, but we are especially proud of the difference that we make in our clients’ lives.
