Medical Malpractice FAQ
Our legal consultations are always free unless we recover money for you. During the course of our investigation into your medical malpractice claim, we advance any costs that we deem necessary in the proper handling of your case. If we do not recover money for you, you do not have to return any of the costs incurred associated with your case.
This is called the Contingent Fee.
Contingent fees make it possible for anyone to hire only the very best lawyer to decide if there are grounds for a claim, without paying for that advice. More importantly, it gives everyone access to the justice system and representation equal to the best that insurance companies, doctors, and other defendants can hire.
Types Of Delayed Diagnosis Cases We Handle
Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (SCAD) is a rare and often underdiagnosed condition that predominantly affects women, with pregnant and postpartum women being at particular risk.
Understanding the risks, diagnostic challenges, and potential legal recourse is vital for affected families.
Meningitis is an inflammation of the membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord. Meningitis can quickly turn life-threatening if not promptly diagnosed and treated. For families impacted by a delay in meningitis diagnosis or treatment, understanding the potential consequences and legal rights is paramount.
Epiglottitis is a serious, potentially life-threatening condition characterized by the rapid inflammation and swelling of the epiglottis, which is a small cartilage lid that covers the windpipe (trachea) to prevent food from entering the airway during swallowing. Medical malpractice claims arise when epiglottitis is not diagnosed or treated in time.
