Trusted To Right Professional Wrongs
When you put your life, health or legal issue in a professional’s hands, you should be confident that they will do their job knowledgably, safely and ethically. No professional can guarantee a positive outcome – but when a physician, medical administrator or lawyer fails to follow their field’s standards of behavior and causes harm to the clients they were supposed to help, the consequences can be severe. If you have been the victim of medical or legal malpractice, you know that misconduct does more than violate your trust – it can seriously threaten your well-being and rights.
Appleton & Appleton, LLC, is dedicated to helping those who have suffered from malpractice get the compensation they need and the justice they deserve. Serving the Greater Hartford area for over 80 years, our firm is trusted by our clients to right professional wrongs.
Focused, Knowledgeable Representation For Medical Malpractice Claims
Advancing a medical malpractice case is a complicated process. If you have been injured due to the actions or carelessness of a physician, nurse, medical specialist or medical facility, do not wait to contact Appleton & Appleton, LLC. Most medical malpractice claims in Connecticut must be filed within two years, along with a “reasonable inquiry” certification signed by a qualified medical expert that indicates to the court that there is professional reason to believe malpractice has occurred.
Furthermore, once your claim is filed, you will need skilled, knowledgeable attorneys who can scrutinize your medical records, understand the technical details of your situation, and identify how and why a medical professional failed. We represent those who have been harmed due to:
- Failure to diagnose, or to conduct appropriate screenings
- Failure to follow-up after a diagnosis
- Failure to refer a patient to a necessary specialist
- Misinterpretation of test results or reports
- Prescribing or dispensing the wrong medication or therapy
- Procedural or surgical errors
From preparing and filing your claim, to evaluating evidence and arguing your case, we have the extensive experience to help you through every stage of medical malpractice litigation.
Restoring Your Confidence In Legal Malpractice Proceedings
Connecticut lawyers have an obligation to act in their clients’ best interest. When they fail to do so, their clients can hold them accountable. To pursue compensation, you must prove that:
- There was an attorney-client relationship between you and the attorney in question
- The attorney neglected to provide you with necessary information or acted wrongfully
- The neglect or wrongful action caused harm to you
At Appleton & Appleton, LLC, we aim to restore your faith in the legal profession by providing you with honest, reliable counsel that meets your needs. As a respected and distinguished firm, we are determined to help you get justice when you have been wronged by unscrupulous or incompetent lawyers.
