A recent medical school study found that medical negligence is the third- leading cause of death in the United States. Only cancer and heart disease claim more victims. Practicing medicine is a tough job, but when a mistake leads to a serious injury or the death of a patient, the hospital or provider must accept responsibility. Unfortunately, that is usually not what happens. At Donohoe Law Office, we only take serious injury and death claims and each case is reviewed by qualified medical experts before we proceed. This careful screening process ensures that victims of medical negligence will have a better chance of winning these often bitterly fought cases.
