Doctors and surgeons swear oaths when they begin practicing medicine to do no harm to their patients. That means they’re held to a high standard when they have patients’ lives in their hands. And while most healthcare professionals take their jobs, their oaths, and their duties seriously, some don’t give their patients the care and attention they deserve—and that can lead to serious injuries and illnesses.
At Skolrood Law Firm, our Roanoke medical malpractice lawyers hold negligent medical professionals liable when their careless mistakes cause their patients to suffer health problems or complications. If you or someone you love were hurt by a doctor or surgeon, you may be reluctant to pursue compensation against him or her—especially if you have a relationship with that medical professional, team, or hospital.
But it’s important to remember that medical malpractice can cause lifelong disability and put your family in a serious financial bind. That’s because your injuries or illnesses may prevent you from working for long periods of time, and you may require extensive medical treatments to treat your malpractice-related health problems. If you don’t pursue compensation, you may be left paying for those costs out of your own pocket.
Don’t leave the money you deserve on the table, and don’t go it alone. Doctors and hospitals are well protected by big insurance companies, and they often deny claims from victims who don’t have experienced legal representation.
