If your family has been the victim of medical malpractice, a Port St. Lucie medical malpractice attorney can be your advocate and can help you to hold the doctor or healthcare provider accountable. Doctors and other medical professionals have a legal obligation to their patients and when they fail to fulfill that obligation and patients get hurt, the health care provider must pay for the damage done. At Steinger, Greene & Feiner, our experienced Port St. Lucie medical malpractice lawyers have dedicated their careers to helping the victims of medical negligence. Let us put our legal experience to work to get you full compensation for medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering, emotional distress or wrongful death resulting from medical negligence.
Doctors aren't expected to be perfect, but all healthcare providers are expected to provide reasonably competent care to patients. This means that if a doctor acts, or fails to act, in a way that no reasonable physician with his background would, the doctor can be held legally liable for his failure to live up to his obligation to his patients. Unfortunately, when a doctor or other healthcare provider makes a mistake, grave harm can come to patients. There are many conditions, such as cancer or heart attack, that can be treated effectively if diagnosed promptly and that can be fatal if a medical mistake is made. Patients can also die or become ill as a result of botched surgeries or infections in unclean hospitals. In many cases, patients pay the ultimate price. In fact, estimates indicate as many as 200,000 people die annually as a direct result of preventable medical error. When a patient is harmed, the doctor or care provider must be held accountable and made to compensate the victim and his family members for losses. It is up to the victims to take legal action by bringing a medical malpractice claim or negotiating an out-of-court settlement, and a Port St. Lucie medical malpractice attorney can help.
A personal injury can occur in a variety of ways, but almost all have the same results in common. Suddenly, your life is disrupted and possibly jeopardized physically, emotionally, and financially by an accident or incident which could have been prevented.
A fair settlement is not what you can expect to receive from the insurance company. Their goal is to reduce payouts on claims so they can remain highly profitable. Our proven and committed legal team understands the tactics these companies regularly use to pay claimants as little as possible. We routinely battle their schemes in and out of court, and have developed effective methods for doing so.
With a legal team of more than 30 lawyers and more than 140 staff, including investigators and other assistants, we have the resources needed to get the job done efficiently. With our No-Fee Guarantee, you can bring your personal injury case to us with confidence, knowing you will pay nothing until we recover the compensation you deserve. Throughout the entire case, we will be by your side, providing the guidance you need.
