Families faced with medical malpractice are under enormous strain - a significant injury or death affects the entire family.
How do you care for the child or parent who was severely injured? What type of medical care do you need because of the injury or medical condition? How can you live in your current home if a parent or child is now in a wheelchair and its not handicap accessible?
The day to day responsibility of caring for someone with a catastrophic injury or serious medical condition can be overwhelming.
And then if you've been told - or believe - that the injury or condition was caused by medical malpractice, what to do about it is another responsibility weighing on you and your family.
