Medical Malpractice Cases
Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional, such as a doctor, nurse, or hospital, fails to provide the standard of care expected in their profession, resulting in harm to the patient. Medical errors that commonly lead to malpractice lawsuits include improper diagnosis, medication errors, failure to obtain the patient’s informed consent and performing treatments or surgeries incorrectly. These cases require a deep understanding of medical practices and the ability to navigate complex legal and medical issues.
At THE DRAKULICH FIRM, we have a proven track record of success in handling medical malpractice cases and holding negligent healthcare providers accountable. Our medical malpractice team has extensive knowledge of medical procedures, protocols, and standards of care. We work closely with medical experts to thoroughly investigate each case, gathering evidence, reviewing medical records, and consulting with specialists to build a strong and compelling argument. We are prepared to take on insurance companies and medical institutions to ensure our clients receive the compensation they deserve for their injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Nursing Home Abuse Cases
Nursing home abuse is a tragic and all-too-common form of professional negligence. When elderly or vulnerable individuals are entrusted to the care of nursing homes, they have the right to expect a safe and nurturing environment. Unfortunately, some nursing homes fail to provide the necessary care, leading to neglect, abuse, or exploitation.
At THE DRAKULICH FIRM, we are deeply committed to protecting the rights of nursing home residents and seeking justice for those who have been victimized. Our attorneys have a comprehensive understanding of the laws and regulations that govern nursing home facilities, as well as the signs and symptoms of abuse.
We handle a wide range of nursing home abuse cases, including physical abuse, emotional abuse, neglect, medication errors, falls, bedsores, infection, financial exploitation, and more. Our goal is to hold negligent nursing homes accountable, secure compensation for our clients, and help prevent future instances of abuse in the industry.
We approach each nursing home abuse case with compassion and diligence, thoroughly investigating the circumstances, documenting evidence, and advocating fiercely on behalf of our clients.
A Few Examples of Prior Professional Negligence Cases
THE DRAKUICH FIRM is known for their medical knowledge within the courtroom. A few examples of professional negligence cases that THE DRAKULICH FIRM have successfully handled in are as follows:
• Represented numerous patients who tragically contracted the deadly Hepatitis C virus after getting what they thought would be a routine colonoscopy at a local endoscopy center. The doctors at the endoscopy center were alleged to have recklessly double dipped their needles into extra-large vials of the anesthesia. These extra-large vials were only intended for use of a single patient when he or she had to be sedated overnight. However, it was cheaper to buy the extra-large vials than multiple small ones. This led to the largest outbreak of Hepatitis in the history of our country and the primary doctor being criminally prosecuted and convicted.
• Represented the family of a disabled man who was living in a a skilled nursing facility who developed stage four bedsores leading to an infection, uncontrolled weight loss, an above the knee leg amputation, and tragically his death. Two months before trial, this case reached a confidential settlement.
