We at Donahoe Kearney decide to file a medical malpractice case when a particular case has undergone and passed a rigorous screening process and investigation. Sometimes the investigation of a case takes several years before we can file it, because we need all of the facts and medical records as well as the time and personnel to evaluate them. We only take a small number of cases so that we can dedicate our full resources to them. Our goal is not only to help cover the medical expenses associated with the injury and lost income, but also to prevent the accident from happening again. If you think you have a case and would like more information, then please call Donahoe Kearney at 202-393-3320.
Case Acceptance Guidelines Explains by DC Med Mal Lawyer
PATIENT SAFETY RULES
Every hospital, HMO and doctor's office is supposed to follow basic patient safety rules.
Like all of us - bus drivers, accountants, construction workers, lawyers, we all have rules to follow. And nurses, doctors, hospital techs, specialists, consultants are no different. Everyone in healthcare has rules to follow - rules that are in place to keep patients safe.
So if you think someone you know was seriously injured because someone in healthcare didn't follow the rules, or a hospital didn't have a system to make sure the right thing was done, call us or send us a confidential email. We'll give you as much information as we can about preventable medical mistakes in D.C., Maryland or Virginia and holding the healthcare system accountable for breaking the rules.
