Salt Lake City Medical Malpractice Attorneys
We Take Negligent Medical Teams to Court
Signing a physician’s consent form does not indicate approval of substandard medical treatment. Yet every day, in hospitals and clinics across Utah, patients fail to receive adequate care because of the negligence of medical providers. When we put our lives in care providers’ hands, we have the right to expect they will do everything possible to help and protect us. If your trust was violated by a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional, we can help you determine whether you should file for medical malpractice.
Our Salt Lake City medical malpractice lawyers work to obtain compensation, justice, and answers for victims of medical malpractice, and in so doing, we put doctors and hospitals on notice that they must maintain a high standard of care. These cases are complex and require a vast amount of knowledge and resources. Cutt, Kendell & Olson has both. With both the experience and dedication to help injured patients and their families find justice, we hope you will reach out to us if you need help.
We’ve recovered over $600 million for those who have been hurt and wronged by others. Call our Salt Lake City office today at (801) 901-3470 to speak with one of our medical malpractice attorneys, free of charge.
Medical Malpractice and Patient Rights
According to a recent study published in the Journal of Patient Safety, between 210,000 and 440,000 hospital patients suffer “some type of preventable harm that contributes to their death.” This statistic, if true, would make medical malpractice the third leading cause of death in our country, below heart disease and cancer.
Unfortunately, malpractice can be hard to spot and harder to prove. Medical malpractice claims are difficult to successfully pursue without the right legal team on your side. They are costly and vigorously contested because medical providers are reluctant to acknowledge wrongdoing and insurance companies are unwilling to recognize the cost of the injuries caused by their insureds. These cases also require a high level of specialized knowledge on the attorney’s part, as well as significant financial and expert resources, to bring the case to trial. For these reasons, very few law firms handle medical malpractice litigation in Utah.
However, we believe negligent caregivers must be held accountable, and patients protected from the consequences of medical mistakes. Our attorneys are here for those who have been affected by medical malpractice. No matter what it takes, we fight every case we take until the very end.
