Modern medicine is a demanding, intensive business, and those that practice within it we trust to be confident, dedicated, and learned professionals. 99 percent of the time, you can walk into a doctor’s office or hospital expecting competent, professional service and get it. However, sometimes mistakes are made and someone suffers: you. For whatever reason, something happens outside and below the standard of care set within the medical community and you are left with pain, suffering, disability, and additional and unexpected medical bills, or time lost from work.
The Law Office of Joseph A. Blaszkow has been helping victims of medical negligence in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington DC for 35 years. Some examples of actionable incidents:
Operations on the wrong body part
