The health system is a complex and evolving one. Regrettably there are times when the system itself is the cause of an adverse outcome: whether through a lack of appreciation of the significance of a condition, poor planning, delays in treating or diagnosing a condition, allocating staff with insufficient qualifications or experience or otherwise wrongly dealing with the issues at hand. Matters are often made worse when a full and frank explanation for a poor outcome are not offered. We have the experience and dedication to help you gain insight into what transpired, how things could have been prevented and what insurance options are open to you to help off-set the overall financial consequences to you. That helps you make the best decision to determine which avenue of redress (whether insurance options, formal complaints etc) is the right one for you. It’s important to adopt the right strategy and secure the best evidence – a particularly difficult task in the medical sphere. At Murphy’s Law: Accident Lawyers we have the experience and know-how to navigate through the many obstacles placed in your path by the system and help ensure a just outcome is achieved. Call now to find out how we can help.
