Our Derby Medical Malpractice Lawyers Are Passionate about Holding Negligent Healthcare Providers Responsible for Patients’ and Families’ Losses.
Even if you have heard stories, you never expected it to happen to you: A doctor, nurse, or other healthcare provider made a mistake, and now you are forced to cope with the consequences. Whether you were misdiagnosed or a loved one tragically lost his or her life as the result of an avoidable error, what’s done is done and now you have no choice but to try to move on.
We do not envy your situation. Few words can describe the feeling of learning that you have misplaced your trust in a medical professional. Sadly, cases of medical malpractice are all too common, and each year, hundreds of thousands of Americans die due to medical mistakes – far more suffer non-fatal injuries and illnesses. And despite the alarming statistics on medical malpractice, it is widely understood that the majority of cases go unreported.
