Medical Negligence

Are you a victim of medical negligence?

In an increasingly complex and sometimes disjointed medical care delivery system, there are occasions where mistakes are made, and misdiagnosis, surgical errors, infections, or other complications result. However, the fact that there was a complication, surgical error, misdiagnosis or infection does not mean the patient or his surviving loved one has a valid medical negligence claim. Only an attorney experienced in the handling and prosecution of medical negligence claims can properly assess whether there is a valid claim.

The Lynn Law Firm has established a reputation for effectively pursuing claims for medical negligence that results in serious, permanent injuries or death. We review claims very carefully for merit because medical negligence claims are among the most challenging cases to successfully prosecute.

When an attorney or client contacts us with a potential medical negligence claim, we first request that we be provided with the necessary medical records, which we most often review before meeting with the client. After an in-depth client meeting, there is further analysis undertaken by the attorneys. If we determine the case has potential merit, it is referred for review by a medical expert in the appropriate specialty. Only if the specialist responds with an unqualified opinion that there was medical negligence and the negligence was a cause of injury, aggravated injury or death, do we recommend to the client that the case be sued.
