We Can Handle Your Complex Personal Injury Case
If you placed trust in medical professionals only to have that trust betrayed by medical negligence, then you may be entitled to damages in a medical malpractice case. Scarfone Hawkins LLP has the experience and knowledge necessary to handle even the most complex medical malpractice claims.
Medical negligence can occur by failure to provide informed consent, surgical errors, failure to treat, failure to follow standard practices, failure to obtain tests, failure to read and report on tests, and many other medical errors. Some instances of medical negligence involve products such as prescription drugs or medical devices such as artificial joints.
In addition to handling medical negligence cases, our firm also represents clients in product liability claims, car accident claims and other serious injury claims. Product liability claims may involve defective automobiles or auto parts, or they may involve dangerous drugs or medical devices. The car accident claims we handle involve all types of motor vehicle accidents, while other serious injury claims could involve slip-and-fall injuries or injuries to children.
Car accident claims — including those involving pedestrians, bicycles, electronic bikes or scooters — can result in entitlement to statutory accident benefits. Even an uninsured pedestrian or bicyclist could be entitled to accident benefits, such as income replacement benefits, medical and rehabilitation benefits, attendant care benefits, non-earner benefits, or funeral and death benefits.
Every serious injury from any cause should be considered, in order to determine whether there is a claim or not.
