It is well understood that in a medical malpractice claim, the injured patient may recover…
At Hoffer & Sheremet, we never post verdict amounts on our website after winning a medical or legal malpractice case because we do not want to risk misleading our clients. No two cases are the same. There are so many factors that go into a verdict, not to mention that verdicts are usually reduced by the Court significantly. The numbers on websites can be illusions. Not to mention, we view the actual number the client’s victory, not ours, and our clients are entitled to their privacy.
We get calls every day from patients who feel they have been wronged by their doctors. Many times these wrongs are perceived slights, failure to communicate, or a failure to ensure the patient understands his or her health situation.
In some circumstances, medical negligence could have been avoided with a stronger physician-patient relationship. It is our hope that patients and physicians will read and apply the following tips. If our firm never received another medical malpractice case because a physician never committed negligence again, that would be okay with us!
