Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Negligence Lawyers Proven To Fight For Your Family

According to John Hopkins patient safety experts, medical errors kill over 250,000 people each year. Thousands more are severely injured. Too often, healthcare providers get away with it. On the other hand, we hold those responsible, accountable.

Families dealing with the catastrophic injury or death of a loved one face many challenges. Usually, there is nothing that could have prevented the injury. In other words, medical providers simply did all they could to treat the patient appropriately. However, there are times where doctors, nurses or caregivers break the standard of care and make errors. In addition, there are catastrophic consequences to their negligence or omission. However, Latona Law attorneys are skilled in analyzing the possibility of malpractice and identifying any liability the hospital or care provider may have. Contact us for a free consultation.
