Medical Malpractice

We Aren’t Afraid to Take on Complex Medical Malpractice Claims

Out of all the types of personal injury claims, medical malpractice claims are among the most complex. It’s easy for doctors, surgeons, hospitals, and clinics to simply deny fault and stonewall any attempts injured patients make to get compensation. To make matters worse, malpractice insurers are also notoriously reluctant to pay victims the money they’re owed.

These factors, plus the degree of difficulty in proving that medical malpractice occurred, mean that many law firms pass on taking on claims from injured patients. But at Skolrood Law Firm, we relish the challenge that comes with winning medical malpractice claims. We have decades of experience building these claims for our clients and we know what it takes to win.

When you contact our Roanoke medical malpractice lawyers, you’ll get a team that has experience in the ring going toe-to-toe with doctors, surgeons, and some of the biggest hospital systems in Virginia. They have big legal teams and a lot of money behind them, but we have experience, tenacity, and a track record of success.

There’s nothing worse to us than knowing an innocent patient is paying out of pocket for a negligent healthcare provider’s mistake. That’s why we work so hard to get our clients every penny they’re owed for their medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. No patient should bear the financial burden of revision surgeries, follow-up treatments, and disability caused by negligent treatment.

Contact us today for a free consultation if you suspect you or a loved one were harmed by a doctor, surgeon, hospital, or healthcare clinic.

Call Us Right Away if You Suspect You Were Harmed by a Doctor

Medical malpractice is a significant problem that causes countless patients to suffer serious injuries and illnesses every year. Unfortunately, medical malpractice often goes unaddressed by victims and their families. That’s because they may not realize it happened or they may not think that they can win if they file claims.

If you suspect that you’re a victim of medical malpractice, it’s important to get help as soon as possible. This is important for two reasons. First, most medical malpractice lawsuits must be filed within two years of the date the injury or illness occurred. Second, evidence is crucial for building successful medical malpractice claims, and it can quickly disappear just weeks after patients have been harmed by their doctors.

In addition, waiting a long time to file a medical malpractice claim can give the hospital and their insurer plenty of time to mount their defense against the lawsuit—especially when they know that medical malpractice occurred. By acting quickly, you and your lawyer can have the upper hand when it’s time to negotiate a settlement.

At Skolrood Law Firm, we make it easy for victims of medical malpractice to get the legal representation they deserve right away after malpractice occurs. We’re available to take calls 24/7, and there’s no charge for our consultations or our services unless we get money for you. Contact our Roanoke medical malpractice lawyers today and tell us what happened to you or your loved one.

How Do You Know if You’re a Victim of Medical Malpractice?

You trust your doctor, surgeon, or other healthcare provider to do everything possible to improve your health or, at the very least, avoid harming you. But sadly, millions of patients are harmed by healthcare providers annually, and more than 250,000 patients die as a result of providers’ mistakes.

Medical malpractice is far more common than many people think, but because it’s difficult to prove, countless cases go unreported and uncompensated. Because of the difficulty of getting compensation—not to mention the reluctance to sue their own doctors—many patients forgo filing claims. In other cases, patients are unaware or unsure if they’ve been harmed.

If you or someone you love suffered a poor outcome after medical treatment, there’s a chance you’re a victim of medical malpractice. Having an experienced Roanoke medical malpractice lawyer on your side can help you determine if medical malpractice occurred and how much money you may be eligible to receive for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

At Skolrood Law Firm, we’re always available to listen to injured victims’ stories. We offer free consultations, which means there’s no risk or obligation to hire if you tell us what happened.

We have years of experience handling medical malpractice claims, and we want to help you get maximum compensation if a healthcare provider’s negligence harmed you or someone you love. Contact us today to get in touch with our experienced team.
