Medical Negligence, Legal Negligence and Professional Negligence

Often, going to the doctor, visiting the emergency room, being hospitalized or having surgery is a frightening thing. Even the most routine doctor’s appointment can be nerve wracking when you’re waiting for test results that could change your life. The stress associated with medical care can become even more overwhelming when the medical professionals involved in your care or the care of a loved one are exhibit negligence.
Medical negligence can happen in any field of medicine, from the inside of an ambulance to the inside of an operating room. It happens when a medical professional who has a duty to provide care to the best of his or her ability neglects to do so and as a result, patients can be seriously injured or even killed. Failure to make a diagnosis, failure to order a specific test and even failure to correctly read test results can cause significant consequences for the patient.
While doctors make mistakes, lawyers also fail in their duties to their clients. The legal ethics required of a lawyer are specific and include the utmost faith and trust to the client. When a lawyer fails to file a suit or other papers on time, when a lawyer gets involved in the business of the client, when a lawyer lies to a client to protect herself from a claim, when a lawyer takes a case without being qualified to do so, all can lead to dire consequences for the client.

Through trial and settlements Mr. Neal has procured multi-million dollar awards for his clients.
