What is medical malpractice?

Medical malpractice includes a number of errors that constitute medical negligence by a healthcare professional. The act of medical malpractice often includes the misdiagnosis or improper treatment of a patient that results in harm, injury, or even death. When medical professionals fail to follow standard protocol, the risk to a patient increases. Medical malpractice can increase medical expenses, prolong recovery time, and cause you excessive pain and suffering.

How can I show that a defective product led to my injury?

If you sustained injuries that were caused by a defective or dangerous product, you may be able to file for damages from the responsible manufacturer. A product liability claim seeks to gain compensation for your suffering and medical expenses associated with the injury from the responsible parties. Unfortunately, the process of proving that a product was liable for your injuries can be difficult. Many manufacturing companies may attempt to claim a consumer misused their product and were at fault for their own injury.

An experienced product liability lawyer may be able to help you prove to the court that a manufacturer was negligent and accountable for your injury. The experienced attorneys at Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller & Overbeck P.A., are prepared to answer your questions and discuss your specific case.

Who is eligible to pursue a claim for wrongful death?

Wrongful death claims are intended to help the families of fatal accident victims that were killed due to the reckless or negligent actions of another party. The financial compensation resulting from a successful wrongful death claim is meant to support the immediate family of the deceased with any financial challenges or suffering that results from the accident. Due to this, wrongful death claims are generally restricted to the immediate family of the victim. However, there may be some exceptions in which another involved individual may be eligible to claim wrongful death.

An experienced attorney may be able to help establish and clarify if you are eligible to file for wrongful death. Call Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller & Overbeck P.A., at (561) 689-8180 today to learn more.
