A Medical Malpractice Attorney Who Has An M.D.
An injury or worsened condition may result from an emergency room error, a misdiagnosis, or failure to treat a condition properly and in a timely manner. However the injury happens, the affected patient and his or her family often face formidable challenges, including additional medical expenses, income lost due to time off work, pain and suffering, and diminishment of enjoyment of life. A medical malpractice claim or lawsuit can recover needed compensation in the event of a medical mistake. The choice of a lawyer after a medical mistake can be critically important for the outcome. Determining the viability of a case is the first step toward success. Martin T. McDonough, M.D., J.D., along with lawyers Emily A., McDonough and Allison A. McDonough, screens potential cases carefully to verify that:
- A potential client has a compelling case.
- The costs for bringing a claim will not exceed potential compensation to be recovered.
- A potential client and the law firm are well-matched in terms of goals and expectations.
Initial Consultations At The McDonough Law Office Are At No Charge For Inquiring Potential Clients. Important questions such as the following receive careful consideration at these free consultations: Was a delayed appendectomy the real reason for a poor outcome? Was a newborn’s critical condition likely the result of a preventable birth injury? Did a stroke disable a patient more than it should have because of an emergency room error?
