In today’s health care industry, HMO’s and insurance companies often control how doctors practice medicine, how many patients they see, and how much time they spend with each patient. This practice endangers patients and has increased the number of medical malpractice claims. At Nichol & Associates, we are dedicated to helping people who have been injured as a result of medical malpractice. In each case we handle, we aggressively seek the compensation our clients need to recover physically, emotionally and economically.
Our Experience In Medical Malpractice Claims
The founder of our firm, attorney Doug Nichol, has handled medical malpractice cases for more than 40 years. Our lawyers have successfully represented numerous individuals whose injuries have required long-term rehabilitation, multiple surgeries and permanent life altering injuries.
Victims of medical malpractice deserve the compensation necessary to help them recover from the injury they suffered. Unfortunately, doctors, hospitals, and insurance companies rarely admit mistakes. Patients who suffer serious injuries due to medical malpractice are often told that their injuries are due to the risk involved in their medical treatment. Many medical malpractice cases include:
- Failure to diagnose
- Improper diagnosis
- Improper treatment of a diagnosed illness
- Failure to monitor a patient
- Failure to diagnose or timely treat cancer
- Improper administration of drugs, or using the wrong drugs
- Improper use of a medical device
- Injury to a child or mother during birth
- Unnecessary surgical procedure
- Pharmacy mistakes
- Mental health issues
Our firm has an exceptional record of success in medical malpractice cases. When we accept a medical malpractice case, we take time to understand the case and line up expert witnesses prior to filing a suit. We work with economists and life care specialists, as well as accident reconstruction experts to determine the full impact of an injury to medical malpractice victims and their families.
A majority of medical malpractice cases eventually settle. Our experience in medical malpractice cases, along with our reputation for only pursuing legitimate cases, is a great asset when working with hospital and insurance companies on a medical malpractice settlement.
