Annually, nearly 195,000 patients die from preventable in-hospital medical errors: an inaccurate diagnosis, improper treatment, or inadequate care. Beyond this, such negligence results in many more gravely injured – their lives permanently altered and affected by doctors and other medical professionals they thought they could depend on.
Even though medical malpractice frequently occurs in the United States, cases have no clear outcome. Injuries stem from any medical professional’s errors, be it a doctor’s incorrect diagnosis or treatment, a technician’s negligence, not fully informing a patient of a procedure’s risks, or failing to meet the basic standard of care. Nevertheless, even with the life-changing consequences present, determining fault and obtaining compensation may take years within this field of tort law.
Medical malpractice-related injuries happen daily, including in Bridgeport and other Fairfield County hospitals. The results are traumatic, hospitals and medical professionals refuse to admit blame, and the injured party awaits an uncertain future. While medical malpractice cases are notoriously lengthy and complex, Trantolo & Trantolo’s lawyers provide the aggressive representation to evaluate your case and, ultimately, recover sufficient compensation to you or any injured family member – an amount not merely covering future medical procedures but economic losses from missed work and pain and suffering.
Since our beginnings in 1938, Trantolo & Trantolo persistently represents personal injury cases, including medical malpractice. The complexity, particularly present in this area, does not deter our lawyers, who have many successes on our clients’ behalf.
Over the years, our law firm expanded to multiple Connecticut locations, such as Bridgeport, but our approach remains unchanged. Clients are met with personalization from all staff, and our lawyers, in representing Bridgeport cases, extensively research and fight once in court. Clients in Bridgeport and other Connecticut towns only pay once compensation has been received for a case.
Because of the extreme intricacy involved, potential Bridgeport clients are advised to prepare with thorough and sufficient documentation for medical malpractice cases.
