[00:00:02.520] I have a lot of experience with medical malpractice cases. [00:00:08.320] There are a wide range of negligence that result in injuries to clients. [00:00:15.000] One of those areas is the failure to diagnose infections. [00:00:20.320] This is a very serious problem [00:00:22.320] and can result in extremely serious injuries to a person, [00:00:26.960] including going into what's called septic shock. [00:00:30.360] This is an injury that can lead to death and does lead to death [00:00:34.080] if it's not properly treated timely. [00:00:37.480] I also have experience in surgical areas where doctors, [00:00:42.120] there's a consent to do surgery on one part of the body, [00:00:45.080] and the doctor negligently cuts an adjoining bone [00:00:50.960] and these injuries also can be really devastating to people. [00:00:56.400] If the doctors ignore their duty in this regard, [00:01:00.040] the injuries are devastating [00:01:01.320] and people are left with permanent disabilities, unfortunately. [00:01:04.800] Another area of medical malpractice cases that I'm involved with [00:01:09.440] is psychiatrists dispensing controlled substances. [00:01:14.800] Unfortunately, doctors will use those prescription pads, [00:01:18.360] they'll make the pharmaceutical companies happy [00:01:21.000] and their patients often suffer tremendously. [00:01:25.200] It's vitally important to have a lawyer on your side. [00:01:28.960] You must call a lawyer. [00:01:30.880] Very rarely do doctors or really anyone in our society [00:01:35.440] take responsibility for their conduct. [00:01:38.560] It's not the way our society is set up. [00:01:41.320] So it's really important you get a lawyer. [00:01:43.360] We'll preserve evidence. [00:01:45.520] We'll put the other parties on notice that they have to preserve the evidence. [00:01:50.680] There can be sanctions for spoilation if they don't do that. [00:01:56.680] So it's really important to get the lawyer involved and press your case. [00:02:01.240] People can expect, if I'm their lawyer, [00:02:04.160] for me always to be getting back to them promptly, explaining to them [00:02:08.440] what decisions have to be made, giving them counsel as to the decisions [00:02:12.640] and letting them decide, [00:02:14.080] especially when it comes time to resolve the case, [00:02:16.960] giving an opinion on what the value of the case is, [00:02:20.480] letting them know the upside, the downside and giving them counsel [00:02:23.680] as to the resolution, also preparing them [00:02:26.600] for all the court appearances and depositions [00:02:29.160] so they know fully what to expect.
