In situations like this, I advise my clients to seek out other doctors who will honor their contracts, but when the charges have already been incurred, I work aggressively to make sure my clients get the full benefit they have paid for in the form of health insurance premiums. If it can get away with paying you less than you deserve—or nothing at all—it will. I explain to my clients that while they are still in treatment for their injuries, it is my job to make sure the bills are being paid promptly and by the right insurance company, to protect the client from unwanted contact by the insurance company, and to make sure everything in general is going smoothly.Read More
Medical Malpractice: Amputations
When you have problems with your body, you seek a doctor to help you find the reason. So you invest money in any medical procedure that you may need and hope for the best results. But sometimes, hoping is not enough. In certain cases, you may get out in a worse condition. This doesn’t automatically mean that your doctor did something that he shouldn’t. Still, you should be prepared to face any kind of scenario.
Sometimes, medical treatment or procedures lead to amputation. For example, if a tumor is not treated properly, the doctor could be forced to practice an amputation. It could be the only way to save or extend the patient's life. But if the doctor’s wrong decisions cause this situation, you are entitled to compensation. Amputations can also be caused by deficient post-operational treatment. For example, a wound that is not properly treated by a nurse, if it gets infected, an amputation can be the only way to prevent the further process of the infection.
How Can I Make This Claim? In all the states the victim can make it, providing that he or she has sufficient evidence to support it. But in some states, a family member can also seek compensation. This happens because the victim’s injury affected his or her way of life. In some cases, only the spouses can bring this type of claim against the doctor.
Amputations change the life of the patient. If he needs all his limbs to work, is likely that he will lose his position, therefore his income. Also, this may affect his ability to find work in the future. The victim may try to seek compensation for all the after amputation damages. If you are a victim of a wrongful amputation and want to press charges against a doctor, you must have the advice of an expert. Not only from another medical professional, but you will also need the help of an experienced medical malpractice attorney.
Like all medical malpractice situations, you must prove that the injury was caused by your doctor’s actions. For this, you will need help from a seasoned medical malpractice lawyer. He will find all the testimonies and evidence needed to support your claim. Also, he will be responsible for the delivery of all paperwork promptly. Avoiding any kind of problem in the way.
Don’t rely on any expert, seek the advice of an experience and qualified lawyer now!

By “chewing his food,” your lawyer takes each task one at a time and sticks with it until it is completely and thoroughly done in exactly the best way to support your claim. Trial briefs and proposed jury instructions are submitted to the judge, and final arrangements are made for scheduling of witnesses. I ask for this information not to make my clients uncomfortable, but so I can prepare an effective strategy to deal with facts that might be less than ideal.Read More
Sometimes, going to trial is absolutely worth the risk, and sometimes, the insurance company leaves you no choice but to fight to the bitter end, but there are tools available that can increase your chances of reaching a satisfactory conclusion to your case before trial. Once the opening statements have been made, it’s time to begin presenting the evidence. One of the most important differentiating factors is when the injured person is a child. Although helmets decrease the chances for one, head injuries still happen frequently.Read More

He became a principal in 1988 and began taking on managerial responsibilities. He then became managing partner in 2002.It was conversations with Jack McCarthy that helped David understand that law could play a role in the greater good. Jack often spoke of the great disparities in wealth and education between our clients and the insurance companies and corporations who sat on the other side of the table. He articulated best the notion that we could affect social change, modify unsafe behavior and redistribute some of the wealth to those whose lives had become broken. That theme continues to resonate with me.For more than 30 years, David has been a trial lawyer, successfully representing clients in a wide variety of complex injury and wrongful death cases, including: defective products, medical malpractice, construction accidents, employer intentional torts, and motor vehicle collisions. At Nurenberg Paris, he chairs the class action department and has resolved consumer class action suits against insurance companies on behalf of a class of 600,000 members and against auto dealerships on behalf of 75,000 class members.

State Farm Mutual Insurance Co., 88 Ohio St. 3d 481 (2000) (establishing important criteria for certification of a consumer class action) and ,Holeton v. Crouse Cartage Co., 92 Ohio St. 3d 115 (2001) (our client was a companion case which declared Ohios workers compensation subrogation statute unconstitutional).
