Whether it be you, your child, or a loved one, any injury that is caused by the negligence of others should be carefully examined. The pursuit of compensation for these injuries serves both the victim and society by ensuring that everyone is held accountable for their actions, no matter who they are or what they do for a living.

We advocate for those who cannot speak for themselves. Injured victims, such as babies with cerebral palsy, need someone to be their voice to ensure they are heard. A victim of negligence is entitled to pursue a recovery, no matter what their age and/or disabilitiy may be.

Medical Malpractice and Personal Injury claims are serious and require an experienced attorney who is familiar with the navigation of these highly complex waters. That's what we do. We thoroughly evaluate your claim and if it has merit, we help you pursue the fair and just compensation you are entitled to.

Whether it be an elderly woman in a nursing home or a brain damaged infant, everyone is equally entitled to competent representation for injuries sustained due to the negligence of others.

What Do We Do?  We Serve As Your Advocate

Many of us put our unquestioning faith in our physicians and healthcare providers.  So when something goes wrong we don’t know where to go, or what to do.  We are here to serve as advocates for those who cannot, or do not know how to, speak for themselves.  Whether it be a brain damaged infant, an elderly nursing home patient, a deceased loved one, or a patient who has been hurt and doesn’t know where else to turn, we treat each client with the upmost respect and give each case the personal attention it deserves.  By investigating your claim, we try to help you find the answers that you are looking for.  Was this situation preventable?  Did these mistakes, more likely than not, cause these injuries?  Whether or not you have a case which can be pursued in court, through our evaluation process we will do our best to provide you with answers to some of these questions and subsequently, peace of mind.

Selecting A Medical Malpractice Attorney

Selecting a qualified and experienced attorney for a medical malpractice claim can be daunting.  This is a highly technical field with numerous idiosyncrasies which are not seen in other areas of the law, or litigation.  First and foremost, you should ensure that the attorney you retain is familiar with the complexities of your case. Even within the field of negligence based litigation, there is a host of technicalities which differentiate medical malpractice actions from other negligence claims such as personal injuries.  Both are claims brought due to negligence, however, medical malpractice claims are only brought against healthcare providers for injuries that occur as the result of the rendering of negligent medical care.  Personal injury claims are brought against corporations and/or individuals for injuries someone has sustained due to the negligence of another.  As such, the attorney who handled your car accident claim may not be qualified to handle your medical malpractice suit.  When seeking representation, you want to make sure that your attorney is well-versed in the ever-evolving statutes and case law, lien issues, negotiating, as well as taking cases to trial.  Just because both types of claims involve injuries due to negligence does not mean that the same rules or standards apply to both.

Selecting a Personal Injury Attorney

Personal injuries are those injuries which are sustained as the result of negligence perpetrated by any individual or corporation, outside of the scope of the provision of healthcare.  The most common examples of personal injury claims include car accidents and slip and falls.  Selecting a personal injury attorney can be an overwhelming prospect when you are suffering from the injuries you have sustained.  Much like medical malpractice, personal injury claims are their own beast and have specific issues that arise only in this type of claim.  You should make sure that any attorney you retain is experienced at handling personal injury claims, dealing with liens, negotiating settlements and taking cases to trial.  They should be familiar with the various types of coverage and remedies which are available to you, the victim.  They should be able to sit down and have an informative discussion with you regarding your claim, the merits and the process of litigation.

The Merits of Negligence Based Litigation

Countless men, women and children fall victim to medical negligence every day.  As a result of this negligence, families are often burdened with insurmountable medical bills, a lifetime of injuries, and sometimes even the loss of a loved one.  Unfortunately, the medical field has not refined their system when it comes to policing their own.  Unlike the practice of law, physicians who make serious mistakes in their field are continuously employed and insured every day.  The majority of instances of medical malpractice are perpetrated by repeat offenders who comprise a small percentage of healthcare providers.  Medical malpractice litigation is one of the few remaining ways that allows victims and their families to be heard and fairly compensated for their injuries and suffering.  While serving the vicitms, the pursuit of this litigation serves society as well by helping to create a desperately needed check and balance for the medical system as a whole.

At The Law Offices of Annie B. Hirsch, we pride ourselves on carefully investigating claims and only pursuing those which have merit.  This allows us to best serve our clients, the legal system and society as a whole.
