Although the vast majority of healthcare workers provide competent, professional care, errors are sometimes made resulting in harm to patients and their families that impacts the rest of their lives.
Medical malpractice happens when a doctor, nurse, hospital, pharmacy, nursing home or other healthcare professional or facility deviates from the recognized standard of care in the treatment of a patient.
Aversa & Linn represents patients and their family members who have been injured by the mistakes and negligent acts of medical care providers.
Our attorneys handle medical malpractice claims involving:
- Birth-related injuries
- Brain injuries
- Surgical errors
- Misdiagnosis or late diagnosis
- Failure to diagnose cancer
- Obstetrical and gynecological treatment errors
- Patient neglect
- Medication mistakes
- Emergency room errors
- Nursing home negligence, abuse and neglect
Medical malpractice doesn’t just happen in hospitals — any healthcare professional or facility can make a life-altering mistake.
Some cases involve malpractice that has been fatal to the patient or caused serious, catastrophic injuries. Although certain losses, like the death of a loved one, cannot be fully compensated with money, the significant verdicts and settlements obtained for our clients is the first step in putting their lives back together.
Nothing is more important in life than your health. The trust you place in those who provide your healthcare should never be violated. If that trust is ever broken and you have been harmed, we will fight for you.
Medical errors take a physical, emotional and economic toll on the patients and their families. The lawyers and staff at Aversa & Linn are here to help medical malpractice victims get the compensation they may need for corrective surgeries, rehabilitation, ongoing therapy, lost income, reduced earning capacity and pain and suffering.
In addition to negligent healthcare providers, we will pursue all other parties that could be liable for your injuries, including:
- Hospital and senior care staffing companies.
- Drug and medical device manufacturers.
Our team will analyze and develop a strategic plan that is specific to your case to keep it moving forward and get you results as quickly as possible. We will be in constant communication with you throughout the development of your case and always provide access to our team of attorneys and case managers. This high attention to detail and constant flow of information allows us to maximize your recovery.
