Doctors don’t like to admit it when they make mistakes. This is more than irresponsible – it is life-threatening. When a doctor, nurse,or other medical professional makes a mistake, lives can hang in the balance.
If you have been hurt or had a family member killed because of a medical mistake, you need me on your side. In one surgery error case I handled, a plastic surgeon’s patient had an embolism and her surgery failed. The surgeon rewrote his medical records to show that he had warned his patient many times about the dangers of an embolism – in fact, he never warned her once. I managed to prove the surgeon was a liar and then made sure everyone knew about his actions. See more about this case on my In the News page.
