Of all professionals, our society puts some of the most trust in our medical community. When we and our loved ones are sick or ill, sometimes terminally so, we put utmost faith in the expertise of medical professionals to relieve our ailments and elevate our quality of life.
The majority of doctors, physicians and medical professionals are intelligent and hardworking and provide quality care with the utmost patient devotion. That said, despite the best intentions they make mistakes and sometimes demonstrate negligence. Inattentiveness, carelessness, being overworked or being part of a system that intentionally decreases patient care can have deadly and life-altering consequences.
If you or someone you love has been injured by what you believe to be medical malpractice, it is critical to reach out to counsel who will take the time to fully understand your circumstances, understand to what you may be entitled in compensation and work toward it with unrelenting dedication.

Medical Malpractice — $3,000,000 Settlement For Failure Of Hospital Emergency Room
A young man was diagnosed as suffering a "black eye" after being assaulted. In actuality, he suffered a traumatic brain injury. The hospital and emergency room physicians failed to conduct a complete, comprehensive physical examination of the plaintiff and he was later found to have suffered a large, rapidly expanding left acute subdural hematoma. Had the hospital and emergency room staff timely diagnosed the extent of the plaintiff's injuries, he might not have needed to undergo a craniotomy or be declared mentally incompetent. Scott Epstein obtained a $3,000,000 settlement on his behalf.
