We fight for families of medical malpractice victims

Going to the doctor shouldn't be a stress-filled experience. After all, medical professionals undergo extensive training and receive copious amounts of education before taking patients' care into their own hands. Yet, the fear of medical mistakes isn't unfounded, as statistics demonstrate that year after year. Far too often, innocent and unsuspecting patients are irreparably harmed or killed by medical errors that are wholly preventable. This medical malpractice can wreak havoc on the lives of victims and their families. For surviving families, the emotional toll of a losing a loved one is only exacerbated by the financial losses that suddenly befall them.

Although it can be difficult to think about after losing a loved one, those who have lost a loved one to medical malpractice may want to consider taking legal action in the form of a wrongful death lawsuit. Succeeding in this claim can help achieve a sense of justice by imposing liability on negligent parties, as well as provide financial security by obtaining a judgment for compensation. To succeed in this action, though, surviving family members will have to prove certain legal elements, so the facts of the case at hand are crucial.

With so much at stake, these families need strong legal representation from an aggressive legal team that knows how to advocate in these types of cases. At the Law Offices of James L O'Rourke, we have a firm grasp on medical malpractice and wrongful death law, as well as the rules of evidence and the trial rules, which allows us to develop compelling and persuasive legal strategies for our clients. Whether a loved one has been lost due to a misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, failure to diagnose, surgical error or medication error, we know how to build a case to increase the chances of a jury finding a medical provider liable.

Dealing with legal matters can be stressful under any circumstances, let alone when a family has lost a loved one. That is why competent law firms like ours stand ready to help ease the burden and fight for what surviving families deserve.
