What is Medical Malpractice?

When you or a family member are ill, injured, or need medical assistance (such as a pregnancy), you are dependent on your doctors, nurses, therapists, hospitals, and the medical practitioners to resolve the situation.

The vast majority of these healthcare providers live up to their promise. Sadly, some do not, and then you are left to live with the consequences of what they did to you or how they damaged you physically and mentally. When these individuals leave you injured you need to have a top medical malpractice lawyer working tirelessly to get you the compensation you deserve, and that is where Chionuma Law Firm, LLC can help.

According to recent studies, as many as 98,000 Americans or more, die each year from preventable medical errors made by hospitals, doctors and other medical professionals (Institute of Medicine; To Err is Human; Building a Safer Health System, 2000). Far more Americans die each year from medical errors than from car accidents (43,458), breast cancer (42,297), or AIDS (16,516).

The law recognizes that medical professionals can make error. However, a medical mistake becomes medical malpractice whenever the care of a patient falls below accepted community standards and causes injury or death.

Driving is a Privilege You Can’t Afford to Lose

No one can afford to lose their license. For most people, the ability to drive impacts daily life. Whether that’s getting to a job or caring for your family, the convenience and necessity of driving is something we don’t want to lose.

If you find yourself faced with a possible license suspension, do what thousands of other people have done: rely on the trusted advice of Chionuma Law Firm, LLC.

DUI laws in the state of Missouri apply to any individual operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of any mind-altering substance, such as alcohol, marijuana, and other drugs. The DUI laws do not differentiate between legal and illegal substances; even prescription painkillers that are prescribed to you are still considered a mind-altering substance if they affect your driving performance. If your behavior is impacted in any way by the substances in your body, you can be arrested for driving under the influence and subject to the legal repercussions for DUI/DWI.

Attacked by a Dog or another Animal? Get the Compensation You Deserve!

Although animal-attack claims typically involve dog bites, many other types of domesticated animals, such as ferrets, cats, and even birds, can also bite humans. Even non-domesticated animals, including snakes, and large cats ordinarily found in the wild are kept by some people as pets and have been known to attack children and adults. An owner can be held liability in many cases for injuries caused by their pet; typically, when trespassing is not an issue.
