Has medical malpractice affected your life?
When you visit a hospital, clinic, or doctor's office, it is because you want to improve your health and your quality of life. But far too often in Hawaii, doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals harm you instead of help. In many cases, these medical mistakes are due to carelessness or negligence and could have been prevented. In fact, a recent study found that an estimated 195,000 people die in the United States each year because of a totally preventable medical error.
At Trecker & Fritz, we understand that medical errors can be extremely detrimental to your health, your family and your life. Each year in Hawaii, hundreds of people lose a loved one because of a missed diagnoses or a surgical error. Others face a lifetime of disability and medical bills after a birth injury or anesthesiology error. Even after a medical error has been corrected or addressed, victims of medical malpractice can struggle with disabilities, chronic pain, nerve damage, depression, anxiety, and even post-traumatic stress. You may have lost wages, lost your ability to return to work, or even lost your ability to complete everyday tasks.
With a law office in Honolulu, and serving all of Hawaii, we are dedicated to helping those who have been affected by a medical error to collect damages and get their lives back on track. While it is impossible to completely undue the damage of a serious medical error, we can make certain that you are compensated in a just and fair manner and that the person or hospital that committed the medical mistake takes responsibility for their error.
We represent clients in Hawaii who have been the victims of the following types of medical mistakes:
- Failure to diagnose, delayed diagnosis, and wrong diagnosis
