Malpractice Is The Third Leading Cause Of Death In The U.S.

Medical errors account for more than 250,000 deaths each year in the United States — such errors are our nation's third leading cause of death, behind only cancer and heart disease. In addition, medical negligence gives rise to countless patient injuries. Which is to say, many individuals leave the hospital in worse shape than when they entered.

The doctors are not always at fault. Complications arise frequently in the field of medicine, and mistakes can be made even when doctors responsibly follow protocol and administer appropriate care. Yet many injuries and deaths result from negligence and carelessness, and in such cases medical practitioners and the institutions they work for must be held responsible for the damage they cause.

Serving Atlanta and throughout the region, the attorneys at Steel & Moss LLP offer assertive legal counsel to individuals and families who have suffered harm as a result of medical negligence.

How We Help Victims Of Medical Malpractice

We are selective in the cases we take on. This allows us to devote substantial resources to the matters we pursue. We work with medical professionals, economists, and other subject area experts to identify any mistakes that took place during a medical procedure and to assess an appropriate amount of compensation for victims.

Insurance companies try to settle matters quickly and endeavor to work directly with the injured party. This enables them to end a matter before the full extent of injuries is known. In many cases, this means the victim receives far less than he or she needs to recover.

As such, retaining a knowledgeable lawyer is imperative. With more than 55 years of combined experience, Steel & Moss LLP's attorneys have handled numerous medical malpractice cases. We are skilled in negotiating with insurance companies and their counsel; when the situation warrants it, we provide aggressive, effective representation in court. In all cases, we fight hard to obtain maximum compensation for our clients.
