The local firm has updated its services based on recent data from the BJS suggesting that, despite being one of the leading causes of death in the US, only 2% of victims file medical malpractice claims that seek compensation, likely due to emotional overwhelm and grief.
After a consultation, the firm can provide guidance on the most effective legal pathways that clients can take to recover damages for their loss. These types of civil claims seek restitution for lost income, funerary costs, and medical expenses incurred by the primary victim’s passing, in addition to punitive damages and emotional trauma.
As such, the Justice Guardians’ lawyers will hold healthcare providers and medical practitioners accountable for causing or failing to prevent the death of someone they had a duty of care towards. The firm has years of experience litigating wrongful death cases involving prescription errors, misdiagnoses, birthing injuries, surgical mistakes, and inadequate care.
“A medical professional or healthcare physician has a duty to take care of their patients while upholding a standard of care. When that care is broken, medical negligence can cause life-long injuries and even death,” explained a spokesperson.
After exhausting all means of settling out of court, the team of legal professionals can help the families and dependents of victims file lawsuits against the negligent party. They will collate court documents and evidence, including witness testimonies and affidavits that help the plaintiffs get the results they deserve.
While the court ultimately decides the amount of compensation, economic and otherwise, the victims are entitled to, the Justice Guardians have enough experience in this field to explain to their clients how various factors contribute to the calculation of this amount. As such, families affected by medical malpractice-related wrongful death can file claims and undergo court proceedings with full transparency.
