Putting people first

The health care industry today too often puts profits before people. We think the opposite should be true — that people come first and all else follows.

Our attorneys are here to ensure that our clients injured by substandard care are awarded thefull compensation they need to put the pieces back together and get on with their lives.

A delicate and dangerous process capable of causing severe health problems or death

Even a milligram-sized mistake can mean the difference between a successful procedure and serious complications or even death when it comes to anesthesiology. The American Society of Anesthesiologists reports finding a steady decline in deaths from anesthesia in generally healthy patients, from one in 10,000 cases to one in 250,000 cases over the past 20 years, but the process of anesthetization remains delicate and potentially dangerous.

Holding health care staff responsible for their mistakes

Elk & Elk's medical malpractice lawyers have seen serious patient injuries resulting from health care providers administering the wrong medications or incorrect amounts of anesthesia. These kinds of injuries also happen when patients experience adverse reactions to medications and anesthesia when nurses and doctors are not paying close enough attention.

The health care staff is responsible for injuries to patients that occur under these circumstances and Elk & Elk's lawyers are here for you when the unimaginable happens.
