ZEALOUS AND COMPASSIONATE ATTORNEYS
Working Together For You
When you go to the doctor, you expect a certain level of care and expertise. Trained professionals have a duty to provide competent treatment to individuals. When that isn’t the case, it can have disastrous consequences and feels like a betrayal. The Pickel Law Firm, LLC, has been representing the rights of Bridgeport, Darien, Greenwich, Norwalk, Stamford, Weston, Westport, and Wilton, CT residents in medical malpractice cases for decades.
At our Stamford office, we have years of experience helping with cases involving hospital negligence, cancer misdiagnosis, injuries during birth, surgical mistakes, medication errors and injuries caused by nursing homes.
HELPING VICTIMS THROUGHOUT THE CLAIMS PROCESS
It can sometimes be difficult to identify cases of medical malpractice. Some of the more common situations that often lead to lawsuits include misdiagnoses, unnecessary surgeries, premature discharges, incorrect prescriptions, pressure ulcers, infections acquired while in hospitals, improper testing, and more. More than 15,000 suits are filed against doctors every year in the United States, according to the Medical Malpractice Center. If you believe you may be a victim of medical malpractice, schedule a consultation with our knowledgeable and experienced medical malpractice lawyers to discuss the circumstances of your situation. We proudly serve clients throughout Stamford, CT and the surrounding areas.
Connecticut mandates that all malpractice claims have an expert evaluate the case to determine if negligence was present. Our firm has a strong relationship with many local medical experts, and we can help you pick the right place for you. A claim must prove all of these elements to have a chance at success:
- The doctor or another medical professional owed you a duty to adhere to a certain standard of care.
- Said duty was breached by the doctor or another medical professional failing to comply with the standard of care.
- That breach of the standard of care was the cause of your injury.
- There were damages (injury) suffered due to the breach of the standard of care.
If this sounds complex, don’t worry. Our attorneys offer free consultations to all medical malpractice clients. We are advocates for patient rights and believe you should never suffer because of negligence from a medical provider.
Fast Responses To Time-Sensitive Cases
In Connecticut, there is a two-year statute of limitations surrounding medical malpractice cases. This means, with few exceptions, that your case may be lost forever if certain legal action is not taken within two years. Because of this deadline, time is of the essence when you are pursuing a claim. Our lawyers understand the importance of being proactive and getting your case prepared quickly. This is why we will travel to meet you at your home or a hospital throughout the Bridgeport, Darien, Greenwich, Norwalk, Stamford, Weston, Westport, and Wilton, CT region. Medical malpractice shouldn’t go unnoticed because you’re unable to travel.
