Posted by Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA on Jun 30, 2017 9:43:02 PM

Auto insurance companies are notorious for their efforts to achieve a quick settlement with injured crash victims.  The reasons they do this are many: to prevent individuals from seeking the advice of legal counsel who may be able to determine additional liabilities; to prevent individuals from more thoroughly estimate the amount of damages suffered; and to prevent individuals from hiring legal counsel to negotiate on their behalf for a more appropriate settlement.

Medical Malpractice Lawyers Protect the Rights of Injured Patients

Posted by Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA on Jun 22, 2017 11:13:48 PM

A study published in 2016 estimated that approximately 250,000 deaths occur each year in the U.S. as the result of medical errors.  Despite this alarming statistic, medical malpractice claims continue to decrease, and injured patients and their families are left to cope with the aftermath of medical malpractice because of restrictive laws that limit patients’ rights.

In short, medical malpractice may be killing up to a quarter of a million Americans each year, and those responsible are getting away with it.  But injured patients and families still have rights under the law. 

If you or your family have been injured by a doctor or healthcare professional’s negligence, a medical malpractice lawyer may be your only chance to receive the just compensation you deserve.
