You trust your doctors to provide you with quality care. When they instead cause you harm or exacerbate your illness, you may feel like you have nowhere to turn for help. Maduegbuna Cooper LLP empowers you to pursue compensation for your injuries and to obtain the medical care you need to improve your health. Our team views your situation from every angle to determine who is responsible and what steps we can take to recover the maximum compensation available for injuries resulting from:
Mental health professionals have a crucial duty of care when patients are often in a highly vulnerable condition. In many instances, psychiatric patients are not able to make decisions for themselves and must fully rely upon the guidance and medical attention they receive from their doctors. Improperly dosed psychotropic medications, failure to diagnose serious mental disorders, inadequate response to suicidal behavior or involuntary hospitalization of healthy patients can have devastating consequences to the patient, family members and sometimes the general public.
Diagnostic tests are available to confirm the existence of disease or injury. Often, the evidence is obvious in the x-ray, blood test or the patient’s symptoms if a doctor acts responsibly in ordering and analyzing these tests. Failure to diagnose cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stroke and other serious ailments can result in irreparable damage and, sometimes, untimely death.
Preparing for surgery is a nerve-racking prospect, often rife with concern about serious problems. Most surgeries improve the health of the patients — or at least do not harm them. However, when a surgeon makes a mistake, patients often suffer permanent disability, pain and disfigurement and sometimes death.
Paying your lawyer should not add to the stress of your injuries. So that you can concentrate on your health while we focus on your recovery, Maduegbuna Cooper LLP represents you based on a contingency fee agreement. This means we do not charge you attorneys’ fees until we have recovered compensation through a settlement agreement or a trial verdict.
