Areas of Law Description
Knapp & Roberts provides legal representation and services in the following areas of medical malpractice:
- Medical Misdiagnosis
The attorneys at Knapp & Roberts know that the delay in treatment caused by a failure to make a diagnosis can unfairly limit treatment options, may take away patient's opportunity to fight a disease, sickness or cancer and can cause unnecessary damage and heartache. When the result is life-changing injury or wrongful death, this failure can be difficult for patients or surviving families to understand. A medical misdiagnosis attorney at Knapp & Roberts can help you find those answers.
* Heart Attack and Stroke
Heart attack and stroke are frequent occurrences. Heart attack is the leading cause of death in the United States, and stroke is the third leading cause of death according to the National Institutes of Health. Despite this, doctors often fail to recognize the symptoms and risk factors. When a patient dies or faces disability because a doctor failed to diagnose a heart attack or stroke, talk to the medical malpractice lawyers at Knapp & Roberts.
Amputation requires many adjustments including learning to use a prosthesis in place of an arm, leg, hand, or foot. It can mean physical rehabilitation as well as occupational training. Amputation is a life-changing event. If the amputation was caused by a medical mistake, talk to a negligent amputation lawyer about how this has changed your life. Losing an arm or leg is traumatic. Knowing that the amputation might have been prevented makes the trauma even more difficult to understand.
Usually, meningitis strikes young people and requires a quick, decisive response by doctors and other medical professionals. An inflammation of the spinal cord and brain, bacterial meningitis is a fast-developing, life-threatening disease. Too often, meningitis symptoms may be misdiagnosed as flu. If your loved one has suffered serious injury or wrongful death because of a physician's failure to diagnose meningitis and to act promptly, talk to a medical negligence attorney at Knapp & Roberts.
- Prescription Errors
We depend on medicine — and we depend on the pharmacist to deliver the right drug, in the appropriate dosage, with the correct instructions, to the right person at the right time. If your loved one died because of a prescription error, or if you suffered a serious drug reaction because of a prescription mistake, talk to a pharmacy malpractice attorney at the Knapp & Roberts law firm. If a drug mistake caused a serious, life-changing injury or a wrongful death, our prescription error law firm can put together a team that will tell your story to a jury.
* Surgical Errors
If you have a life-changing disability caused by a surgical error or if your loved one died because of a surgical mistake, talk to an experienced Arizona anesthesia mistake lawyer about your situation. At Knapp & Roberts, we have the experience, the resources and the determination to effectively bring your case to court. We care and we can help.
- Hospital / ER Negligence
Whatever the reason — inadequate staffing, inefficient procedures, a heavy patient load, poor staff training — there is no excuse for placing patients in danger by providing inadequate or negligent care. In hospitals, emergency rooms, and urgent care centers, the rule is (as in all medical facilities) "First, do no harm." When a hospital or emergency care facility violates that rule, a patient may die or face a lifetime with a disabling injury. If you or a loved one has been the victim of hospital negligence, talk to a Phoenix hospital negligence lawyer at Knapp & Roberts.
- Pediatric Negligence
Since 1991, our law practice has focused on helping injured people and the families of wrongful death victims. When the negligent acts of a doctor or health care provider are to blame for your child's injury, you should talk to a pediatric malpractice lawyer as soon as possible. At Knapp & Roberts, we can help you determine what caused your child's injury and explain your legal options. Our attorneys can bring together a team of experts who will help the jury understand what happened and why.
* Birth Injury
If your baby was injured during labor and delivery and you believe the injury was caused by medical negligence, a Phoenix birth injury lawyer at Knapp & Roberts can help. Our birth injury law firm has a network of national experts to help us review your case and determine if you have a case of medical negligence. Our trial lawyers have the ability and patience to explain to a jury what happened to your child.
- Wrongful Death
Knapp & Roberts takes wrongful death cases to trial because we won't accept a low or inadequate settlement. When medical malpractice causes a wrongful death, our wrongful death attorneys have the experience, the patience, and the ability to tell your story to a jury. When someone dies because of a medical mistake, the family deserves answers and compensation. In the process, our law firm also hopes to make a difference in how the health care system works.
