MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

Patients place their lives and health in the hands of medical professionals. We help clients obtain compensation for catastrophic injuries and illnesses caused by negligence and misconduct.

Medical Malpractice lawsuits are brought against healthcare providers under a variety of circumstances, including but not necessarily limited to:

  • Mistakes made during surgery, anesthesia, or any other type of medical procedure
  • Failure to properly diagnose and/or treat a patient’s illness
  • Improper prescription of drugs
  • Medical device misuse
  • Failure to obtain a patient’s consent for a particular medical procedure

Medical Malpractice lawsuits are subject to laws and rules that differ from common personal injury claims such as auto accidents. The Law Offices of Craig S. Walkon brings its over 25 years of experience to bear in advocating for the victims of medical negligence.

Walkon has extensive experience with Kaiser Arbitration, successfully representing Kaiser members in Arbitration since 1989.

ELDER ABUSE (NURSING HOME NEGLECT)

We entrust the care of our parents and elderly relatives to nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Unfortunately, some of these care providers are not as careful as they should be. Sometimes, they allow their business needs to lead to understaffing or untrained employees. Elder abuse is the neglect, exploitation, or “painful or harmful” mistreatment of anyone who is 65 years old or older (or anyone aged 18 to 64 who falls under the legal definition of a “dependent adult”). Some signs of elder abuse include malnutrition, dehydration, bed sores, unexplained bruises, or unexplained emotional withdrawal.

The Law Offices of Craig S. Walkon will stand up against nursing homes and assisted living facilities and will hold these care providers accountable.
