Estimating the Cost of Your Injuries
Many emergency room errors result in medical complications that lead to serious injuries or death. As a result, individuals and families face lost income, additional medical expenses and a loss in quality of life. Our attorneys consult economists and life care planners to quantify the financial impact of emergency room malpractice.
Because HMOs and the insurance industry gather cost data, providing an accurate, thorough financial analysis of our client’s injuries is not difficult. Our office prepares cost projections that capture expenses associated with future medical treatment, medical equipment, lost earnings, and emotional pain and suffering.
