Fighting To Recover After Suffering From Medical Malpractice
When you go to a doctor or hospital for help, you are putting your very life in their hands. As you receive treatment from these medical professionals, you are at your most vulnerable, and any mistake made by them can have devastating and lifelong consequences for you. When the reckless or negligent actions of a doctor, nurse or other professional result in an avoidable injury, someone needs to hold them accountable for their actions and the consequences of them.
At our Ocala office of Piccin & Glynn, our lawyers have more than 70 combined years of experience representing individuals through their malpractice claims, and we are prepared to put our decades of experience to work for you. We have won settlements worth well over a million dollars, and we are prepared to put the full extent of our legal skills and knowledge to work for you.
What Is At Stake In These Accidents
The consequences of leaving a surgical device in a person or an anesthesia or medication error can jeopardize your ability to walk, talk, think, work or have a relationship. Our goal as your personal injury attorneys is to win a settlement that covers the current and future costs of your injuries, including:
- Lost income and loss of earning potential
- Medical expenses, including future treatment and surgeries
- Relocation and renovation costs to adapt to a disability
- The loss of personal relationships, including marriages and social interactions.
If your loved one has passed on from this accident, we can also help you pursue compensation that includes funeral and burial expenses, as well as a lifetime of lost contributions to your family.
How We Resolve These Claims
Insurance companies and medical providers often fight back to minimize their liability for your injuries and the compensation they pay you. One common tactic in these situations is offering the victim a fast settlement that is a lowball offer worth far less than the victim deserves.
We can act on your behalf to identify these insulting offers and reject them while negotiating for something that accurately reflects the costs of your injuries. While negotiating is often the preferable resolution method, as it is usually quicker and simpler, sometimes litigation is necessary. In these cases, we will stand up for you in court to earn every penny you deserve for what you went through.
Do Not Settle For Less After Suffering From Malpractice
After these accidents, a hospital representative may approach you and suggest that leaving lawyers out of this can be easier for everyone. Do not make the mistake of representing yourself in these cases, as you may be the one left holding the bill for your recovery as a result.
