When you or a loved one enters a hospital in need of help, it is assumed that the plan of action will work and you will leave with a good bill of health, or at least with the tools necessary for good health. Even though this is the social norm, it does not mean that every healthcare situation is met with that same standard.

How Do I Know I Have A Case?
Personal Injury covers a few categories: product liability, wrongful death, and malpractice. These categories require different legal counsel. Thankfully we at Licata & Yeremenko, A Professional Law Corporation can cover you in any of these categories.
Here are some examples of each:
- Product liability: Recently, the FDA found that hearts can be hacked. St. Jude Medical’s implantation of cardiac devices has shown “vulnerabilities” for patients. There is a way that someone could hack into the device which would cause disastrous results to you or your loved one. Thankfully this vulnerability was discovered quickly before anyone was hurt, this is an incident where a weakness in the device is life-altering. Technology is extremely helpful, but it is not without its faults.
- Wrongful Death: This is when a death occurs due to the gross negligence of someone. This can be filed independently of a criminal charge. You act as a representative of your lost loved one to receive emotional and financial compensation for the wrongful death. For example, the Montecito Mudslide victims are suing the state for the wrongful death of their family members. You can create a suit against a person or a party.
- Malpractice: This is when a professional service is fraudulent or misrepresents, or fails to perform its duties. In the medical area, you can apply this to nurses or doctors, but you can also file suits against lawyers or accountants. Some feel intimidated to file a suit against professional services because they believe that because they do not know their level of expertise that they have no right to complain. This is NOT true. Let us help you with these complaints.
