The Personal Injury Attorney

The days, weeks and months following a serious accident are difficult in any event, and require those involved to make decisions that will affect their ability to take care of themselves and their families. When injury or death results from the negligence of a trusted medical professional or institution, survivors need to deal with complex emotional issues in addition to medical and financial matters. The right personal injury attorney will provide practical advice, powerful legal advocacy and the support a client needs during a difficult time. How will you find the right attorney?

How to find the right attorney

LegalConnection is a complimentary service that discreetly and conveniently matches clients with attorneys by type of case and geographic area. You describe your problem, and shortly after that will be contacted by a lawyer or lawyers (no more than three) with appropriate experience. You then make arrangements for a consultation and case review.

Do you have a medical malpractice claim?

Not every tragic medical outcome entitles the patient to a medical malpractice claim. However, if you feel the negligence of a doctor, hospital or other medical professional contributed to an injury, you deserve to find out what really happened. Begin by arranging a free consultation (offered by nearly all personal injury law firms) with an experienced medical malpractice attorney. The lawyer will explain what your situation involves and how to proceed. The answers you are looking for may be in clear view in the patient's medical records, or may require an intensive investigation by experts.

Medical malpractice:

  • Obstetric and birth injuries, including cerebral palsy, brachial plexus injuries and shoulder dystocia
  • Surgical errors and anesthesia errors
  • Emergency room errors
  • Failure to diagnose breast, testicular, skin or colon cancer
  • Failure to diagnose a stroke or heart attack
  • Failure to perform a cesarean section in a timely manner
  • Failure to treat an infection
  • Amputate the wrong limb
  • Medication errors, drug overdoses
  • Failure to note allergic reactions
