Applying Medical Science to the Law
Health care professionals have a legal and ethical responsibility to perform their duties within the applicable "standard of care" in the community in which they practice medicine. In most situations, they do so with skill and dedication. When a doctor, nurse or dentist does make a mistake, however, the results can be catastrophic.
I am Ira Maurer, a trial attorney with a national reputation for getting results in challenging personal injury cases. I work hard to document medical negligence, identify liability issues and account for my clients' losses. I will represent you with skill and determination.
The Maurer Law Firm, PLLC, represents people in medical malpractice cases involving:
- Surgical errors and anesthesia errors
- Failure to diagnose breast cancer
- Failure to diagnose heart attacks
- Medication errors
- Emergency room errors
- Hospital errors
- Dental malpractice
- Medical malpractice resulting in death
- Other types of medical negligence cases
How Do I Know if It's Malpractice?
Not every negative outcome is reason to accuse a medical professional or hospital of malpractice. Only through a careful investigation by medical experts can it be determined if malpractice did indeed occur.
My firm works with leading medical specialists to determine what in fact really happened and to determine if the treatment provided failed in the legal sense to meet the standard of care. If you believe you or someone you know has been the victim of medical malpractice, you deserve a lawyer with the expertise and resources to fight for you. As your advocate, I will work diligently to build a strong and successful case for you.
Damages in a Medical Malpractice Case
Once I have documented the nature and medical effects of the negligence, I will examine the effects the negligence had on my client and client's family. Damages in a medical malpractice case can include costs for past, current and future medical care, lost income, and noneconomic damages such as pain and suffering. In your case, I will seek full and complete compensation for all of your losses.
The Maurer Law Firm, PLLC, accepts medical malpractice cases on contingency. You will owe an attorney fee only if you obtain compensation.
