How Can a Medical Malpractice Suit Help You?

Every year, over 98,000 people die as a result of preventable medical mistakes. When a medical provider is determined to be legally responsible for your injuries during medical care or treatment, they may be made to pay for the harms caused to you.

Injuries suffered as a result of medical negligence can be severe and life altering. Our malpractice lawyers understand that your immediate goals are to get your physician and hospital bills paid and covered, make sure you do not suffer financially through any lost wages, and make sure your insurance company will pay for future treatment relating to your injury. Our experienced attorneys will work with insurance companies and other parties involved in your case to make sure all your needs are handled quickly and appropriately.

Medical malpractice lawsuits help to put an injured person back in the position he or she was in before being injured. In some cases, punitive damages are also awarded in medical malpractice lawsuits to punish wrongdoers and prevent them from harming others. Medical malpractice suits also send a message to healthcare providers that poor care will not be tolerated. These actions motivate providers to deliver better care to patients to avoid future litigation.

I want to send my heartfelt thanks to John Perconti and the Levin & Perconti staff in taking our case. Not only were they so professional but also so caring and thoughtful. It was very difficult going over the facts in our mother's case but they were so compassionate and understanding and allowed us to be with them every step of the way.
