You Deserve the Truth
Your doctors won’t tell you they committed medical malpractice. They’ll say that a death or terrible injury was “a complication”, or that “they did all that they could do”. They will make ridiculous claims about how their mistakes were "normal" or "acceptable". They’ll avoid you, or they won’t look you in the eye. Many of our clients have the feeling that all the doctors and nurses at the hospital know what really happened—but nobody is telling them.
That’s just plain wrong. You deserve the truth, and our medical malpractice legal team at Polewski and Associates will help you find it. If we find medical malpractice, we’ll work to get you the compensation you deserve.
What is Medical Malpractice?
Doctors have rules they are trained to follow. By now modern medicine knows exactly how a gall bladder should be removed safely, or how meningitis should be treated, or what cancer looks like on an MRI. Surgeons are trained how to perform surgery without cutting the wrong organ, and gynecologists are trained how to perform a hysterectomy safely. Doctors know how to recognize and treat infections. Laboratory results clearly indicate when a patient has a liver or kidney problem, and doctors are trained how to respond when they see abnormal results.
These are examples of clear safety rules developed over decades, all intended to prevent unnecessary injury to patients. But all the medical advances and all the amazing technology is worthless if your doctors don’t pay attention or don’t follow the rules.
That is what medical malpractice is.
Some of the more common types of medical malpractice cases we handle include:
- Delay in diagnosis
- Medication errors
- Birth injuries
- Surgical malpractice
- Anesthesia malpractice
- Malpractice by gynecologists and obstetricians
- Hospital errors
- Nursing errors
- Emergency room malpractice
Your Case is About Fairness-- and Making Things Better.
Every doctor, and every nurse, has medical malpractice insurance to compensate people injured by medical malpractice. If you or your family has suffered due to a negligent doctor, nurse or hospital, that insurance is there for you.
It's only fair that the doctor's malpractice insurance company compensates you for the damages you suffered due to malpractice.
And if you don't stand up and insist that things change, other people will get hurt. Letting bad doctors “have a pass” when they break safety rules puts other people at risk.
Your medical malpractice suit could save a life, and keep another family from suffering what you suffered. But only if you stand up and say “Enough. This can’t happen again”. If you don't take action so that a jury in your community can make the doctor start doing his job right, other people will suffer. Enforcing safety rules--about safe driving, safe food, safe buildings and safe medicine--is one of the main things that juries in this country do. But only if you blow the whistle on negligent doctors in your community.
The time to act is now. Tomorrow may be the day that it is too late to sue, or a crucial piece of evidence is lost forever.
There is no reason to wait: we charge you nothing unless we obtain a settlement for you. Your consultation with us is free.
What to do When You Suspect Malpractice
If you suspect medical malpractice, you must take steps to protect yourself. Here’s how:
1. Take care of yourself and your family first. Get a second opinion. If you think your surgeon hurt you by medical malpractice, get another surgeon involved in your case right away. If you are getting terrible nursing care, get out of that hospital and into a better one. Insist on talking to the hospital administration. People that insist on getting better care get it.
2. Take pictures, take notes, get people’s names. Medical malpractice cases often succeed or fail based on small details. Insist on explanations of what happened. You have the right to know—and after you leave the hospital important information may be lost forever, particularly if the hospital is trying to cover up what happened.
3. Call us right away. Don’t wait: your consultation with us is free, and the sooner we get started, the better. We have seen too many cases of medical malpractice where the client waited too long, or evidence was lost. The time to get started is right now.
What Damages Can I Recover?
