Responding To Harm Through Health Care Negligence

Doctors, nurses, medical technicians and hospital staff members are entrusted with people’s most precious treasure: their physical health. Although people are often sick or injured when they seek medical care, they expect treatments to help them get better, not make their conditions worse.

Not all bad medical outcomes are evidence of malpractice. However, if something seems wrong after you have gone through surgery or started a new medication regimen, you should not simply accept excuses. You have the right to know whether negligence in your medical care resulted in mistakes and harm to you.

Dealing with a health care negligence case is tough for you and your loved ones. It can be difficult to fight alone and it is very unlikely that you could expect to win a lawsuit without an experienced and caring attorney by your side.

At Ray H. Stoess, Jr., P.S.C., Attorney At Law, there is no upfront fee to consult with or work with me. You won’t pay anything unless I win your case and get the money you or your loved one deserve.

A Dedicated And Accomplished Medical Malpractice Attorney

If you underwent medical procedures that caused more harm than good, seek a second medical opinion. Also, consult with a medical malpractice attorney. A free legal consultation may shed light on the questionable circumstances of your poor health outcome after you sought or received medical care. If a doctor or any medical care provider did not follow accepted standards of care, you may be able to recover compensation through a medical malpractice claim or lawsuit.

The most common types of medical malpractice cases are:

  • Delayed diagnosis, misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose
  • Surgical errors
  • Failure to diagnose and/or treat hazardous conditions and illnesses correctly or in a timely manner
  • Errors related to medical products including pacemakers, breast implants and other surgical implants
  • Birth injuries affecting babies and/or mothers

At Ray H. Stoess, Jr., P.S.C., Attorney At Law, I have recovered millions in compensation for my medical malpractice clients. I know how to properly navigate the legal and medical systems to hold medical practitioners accountable for their mistakes. I will tirelessly fight for your rights, and I will never settle for less than you deserve.

A Kentucky Lawyer Fighting Nursing Home Negligence

Abuse in a nursing home or home health care environment can come in many forms. Unfortunately, nursing home negligence cases happen often, and most signs of neglect and abuse can go undetected for months or years. Get legal advice if your loved one – a nursing home resident – has been injured, suddenly become ill or died from any of these causes:

  • Decubitus ulcers or bedsores
  • Dehydration or malnutrition
  • Skin tears, unexplained bruising and other symptoms of likely abuse
  • Medication errors
  • Burns caused by scalding water used for bathing
  • Unexplained falls or elopement (wandering off)

If a nursing home fails to meet basic standards of care and your elderly or disabled family member suffers harm as a result, I will fight on their behalf. Your family’s rights to truth, justice and compensation are at stake.
