When Negligence Leads To Catastrophic Injuries
When you seek treatment for an illness, condition or an injury, you expect that your health care providers have been trained appropriately to identify problems and act proactively to resolve them. Usually, these professionals meet the standard of care, so you are able to exit the medical facility in an improved condition. In a small number of cases, the level set by the standard of care is not met and the consequences can be severe.
At Djordjevic & Marmaros, LLC, we know that catastrophic injuries can occur when doctors, nurses or other staff members make a mistake in diagnosing, treating or managing a medical condition. These individuals can be held liable for negligence when the evidence proves that they provided substandard care which caused serious injury. Supporting these claims requires strong legal representation by trial attorneys because hospitals, insurers and doctors rarely admit guilt in medical negligence cases.
This is why many victims have retained our attorneys. We have devoted our legal careers to promoting our clients’ interests as they relate to medical negligence. For over 70 years combined, we have designed legal strategies and have argued our cases in courts across the country. We have established a team of medical experts who review the evidence of the medical error and provide ethical testimony in court.
