When you or a loved one seeks medical attention, you do so with the expectation that your doctor possesses the skill and knowledge necessary to diagnose and treat your health issue. While medical professionals certainly have the power to extend and enrich the lives of their patients, they also may place patients at serious risk. When a doctor makes a mistake, the results can be catastrophic. Not every mistake, of course, is necessarily medical malpractice, but when negligence or substandard care leads to a delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis, The Wenck Firm can help you seek the compensation you deserve.
