Nationwide Medical & Drug Injury Lawyers
Don’t Fight the Insurance Company Alone
When you visit the doctor to be treated for an illness, things should not get worse as a result. Medical professionals swear a Hippocratic Oath to do no harm toward their patients. While doctors are not perfect, they are expected to uphold a certain level of quality and care. If you were treated for an illness or have undergone a surgery resulting in serious physical consequences, the responsible medical professional needs to be held accountable, both for your sake and that of future patients.
With over 30 years of experience protecting the rights of our clients, Daly & Black, P.C. is the team you need on your side. When you sue a doctor, the insurance company will be the party opposing you in court. Our firm understands the strategies that work when presenting a case of medical malpractice. Let us help you tell your side of the story and obtain the compensation you need for your full and timely recovery.
Laws Surrounding Malpractice
Even with plenty of evidence proving that your injuries were caused by someone else, proving that a responsible party must pay compensation for damages is tough. Even if you can, certain states have put caps on how much you can obtain for certain types of damage. This is why having an experienced insurance claim lawyer on your side is crucial.
In order to bring a suit against a malpractice insurance company, you must:
- File the lawsuit within two years of discovering the injury and no longer than 10 years from when the injury was likely caused
- Alert those named in your lawsuit about the case, doing so through certified mail with a return receipt requested
- Provide an expert report about your injuries within 120 days of the date when the lawsuit was filed
In addition to providing sound medical care, doctors are also responsible for prescribing the right medication, in the right doses, to treat or cure your injury or illness. Over or under medicating a patient can cause serious injury, lead to worsening symptoms, or lead to the wrongful death of the patient. Doctors, nurses, and the hospitals or medical centers that employ them can be held accountable for negligence in administering medication. By filing suit against the negligent party and their insurance carrier, you or your loved ones can seek the full and fair compensation you need to recover and move forward.
Manufacturers of dangerous drugs also have a duty of care to patients, especially in the face of injuries, illnesses, and FDA recalls. When a company manufactures a dangerous drug, knowingly markets a drug for an issue it is not intended to solve, fails to take action when they learn of the danger, and generally prioritizes their bottom line over the safety of their patients, they can be held accountable for their negligence.

We can help you explain how this injury would not have occurred had the medical professional upheld their oath. You are not alone in your path to recovery.
