When a medical tragedy occurs, it can forever alter the lives of its victim and their family. The catastrophe of a severe medical injury to a loved one, or the crippling financial impact of such a loss, can often lead the victim and their family to wonder if their tragedy could have been avoided with proper medical care.
Poulos & Coates, LLP can answer questions like these when a family has experienced a tragedy and wants to know whether their loved one was needlessly injured due to medical or hospital negligence.
When Poulos & Coates, LLP investigates your case and determines that the death or serious injury of a loved one was due to medical malpractice, we dedicate ourselves to shifting the financial burden of a serious injury from its victim and their family, to the insurers of the negligent doctor or hospital.
