If you suspect you are the victim of medical malpractice, your problem most likely began when you entered a doctor’s office and you were already struggling with a significant medical problem. Now, you may face another medical problem resulting from physician negligence and may still be grappling with your original medical problem.
If you are the victim of medical malpractice, you deserve compensation for the pain, suffering and expense you have experienced. The experienced and knowledgeable medical malpractice law firm of the Law Offices of Stephen G. Morte can help. We have successfully resolved numerous medical malpractice and medical negligence claims in our 28 years of practice.
Medical Malpractice Legal Representation from an Experienced Attorney and Former Insurance Company Trial Counselor.
Medical treatment can be difficult to understand. Medical malpractice adds additional difficulty because you must understand not only the appropriate treatment for any given condition, but also how the physician deviated from that standard of treatment.
Our firm works with impartial physicians to determine whether standards of care were met. Our firm then analyzes each case regarding legal considerations and insurance liability and coverage. Attorney Stephen Morte’s 28 years of experience handling wrongful death claims and his prior work defending medical malpractice insurers is invaluable in reviewing each claim and pursuing maximum awards for damages.
Medical malpractice claims may involve birth injuries (including cerebral or Erb’s palsy), birth defects, misdiagnoses, ambulance errors, failure to diagnose, radiological malpractice, gastric bypass procedures, orthopedic negligence or prescription medication errors. Doctors, hospitals, nurses, hospital staff, chiropractors and dentists are common defendants in medical malpractice and negligence claims.
In one recent claim, we represented the estate of a young man whose physician wrongfully prescribed medication, causing his premature death. In another case, the estate of an elderly man claimed an ER physician failed to prevent the patient’s death by failing to recognize and treat stroke symptoms.
Professional Malpractice Legal Services
In addition to medical malpractice, we handle professional malpractice claims, including claims against architects, accountants, attorneys and construction firms. In one recent case involving legal malpractice, a lawyer was involved in the mishandling of the development of 176 acres of land. Another case involved the attorney theft of $100,000 of client funds.
If you have questions regarding medical or professional malpractice, call us. We offer weekday, evening and weekend appointments.
Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse
The elderly are vulnerable and it is our duty to protect them. Too often, we think that the home we have for our parents or loved ones is safe and protective. However, that is not always the case.
The elderly or the sick expect that their care should be reasonable and safe as often times they cannot care for themselves. The types of abuse or neglect that can occur at nursing homes are the following:
- Inadequate safeguards to prevent falling, roaming and injury.
- Failure to adequately treat injuries.
- Poor care resulting in bedsores.
- Failure to protect patients from physical abuse and assault of others.
- Wrongful medications.
