Medical and Nursing Home Malpractice

Medical Malpractice

  • Has your doctor suddenly stopped answering your questions?
  • Was your child born with a physical disability?
  • Did your injury fail to heal?
  • Was the result of your surgery different than you had expected?
  • Was there a delay in diagnosing cancer in you or a family member?
  • Has your child developed a cognitive disability?
  • Did your child or other close relative die unexpectedly?
  • Did your parent or spouse suffer an injury while a resident at a nursing home?

When you are sick or injured, you rely upon your doctors and hospitals to do their best for you and in most cases they do. But when they do not, the patient pays the price. If you believe you have received substandard medical care from a medical professional, we can assist you in investigating your claim and recovering any damages to which you are entitled.

Nursing Home Liability

When you trust the care of a loved one to a skilled nursing facility, you expect that facility to take good care of your loved one and keep them from harm.  Unfortunately there are times when a nursing facility fails to keep your loved one safe.  Mr. Durkin has handled claims against nursing homes involving bed sores and pressure ulcers, preventable falls and outright neglect.  If your loved one is injured while a resident of a skilled nursing facility contact us with your claim.
