Can Joyce & Reyes help me with my medical malpractice case?

We trust doctors and other medical professionals with our health, so it is outrageous and alarming how often people are injured by medical mistakes. In fact, according to a study by Johns Hopkins researchers published in the British Medical Journal, medical errors cause at least 250,000 deaths in the United States each year. That makes medical malpractice the third leading cause of death, after heart disease and cancer.

Medical malpractice occurs when the negligence of a doctor or other medical professional causes harm to a patient. It can take the form of a missed or wrong diagnosis, a medication or surgery error, or a failure to provide proper care or monitoring.

Sometimes it is obvious that a medical mistake was made, and other times a patient may feel that their illness was not handled properly, but they have trouble getting answers from their doctor or hospital. If you suspect that you were harmed by a medical error, you should consult with an experienced medical malpractice attorney right away. Important deadlines may apply in your case, so do not delay talking to an attorney. At Joyce & Reyes, we offer a consultation free of charge to inform you of your rights. If we represent you in a lawsuit, we collect no fee unless we are successful.
