Minnesota Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Doctors, nurses, hospital staff, and medical facilities have a responsibility to adhere to the specific standards set forth for them when they diagnose and treat diseases or injuries. If you or a loved one has been harmed by a medical professional who was negligent by not adhering to the standard of care that they have pledged to adhere to, you are entitled for compensation for lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering. A Minneapolis personal injury lawyer can help you acquire this compensation so you can move on with your life.
As it stands, there are approximately 12,000 deaths every year in the United States due to unnecessary surgery. More than 7,000 deaths are due to medication errors in hospitals with 20,000 deaths occurring due to other errors in hospitals. An astounding 106,000 people die per year from reactions to medications and 80,000 from infections. The numbers are rather staggering and a majority of these deaths can be prevented and many of the affected individuals in Minnesota use a Minneapolis personal injury lawyer to hold the negligent parties responsible.

If any of these issues have occurred, you need a Minnesota medical malpractice lawyer to investigate the matter and file a claim on your behalf. Griffel Dorshow & Johnson has successfully handled medical malpractice and medical injury cases and we want to use that experience for you so that you can have a satisfactory outcome in your case.
Nursing Home Injuries And Neglect
Nursing home injuries tend to be caused by staffing issues. There never seems to be enough people working within nursing homes and this causes patients to be neglected. There are federal laws that have set very strict staffing requirements for nursing homes. If they don’t follow these staffing requirements, then they can be held accountable. We hold the institutions responsible for injuries that result from falls, lack of supervision, hemorrhages, bed sores, and other such injuries. We will use negotiation to resolve your case or we will use litigation; it is whichever will achieve the best result in your case.
