Medical malpractice can have a devastating affect on the whole family - not only the patient who was seriously injured but also parents, children, siblings and other relatives who now have to take care of him and worry about being able to care for his medical needs.
We've seen the stress and the toll it takes. As medical malpractice lawyers, we work with the entire family to help them get through this. Our goal is always to get someone who has been hurt by the medical system the resources he needs for medical care, nursing care, physical therapy, speech therapy, transportation, housing and other things that will make his life better.
And we try to provide peace of mind for the family by making sure the resources are there to take care of their loved one, even after they can't do so themselves. Some people think its wrong to sue for money or get money for a serious injury - it isn't. That money needs to be there to provide for someone who can no longer take care of himself. It pays for wheelchairs, nursing care, home modifications and many other things that help a disabled person be as independent as their medical condition or injury allows and takes some of the worry away for their family.
