An injury can turn your life upside down. Suddenly you may be unable to work or provide for your family. Grappling with financial stress in the midst of your recovery only compounds the turmoil, and you may be unsure where to turn.
At Gottschlich & Portune, LLP, we will give you stability and reassurance during a challenging time. If another person’s negligence caused your injury, we will work diligently to get the compensation you need to meet your needs and chart a path forward. We have served clients in Dayton and the Miami Valley for years and look forward to serving you as well.
You will not pay for our services unless we win your case.
What Kinds Of Injuries Does Your Firm Address?
We help people who have experienced a wide variety of injuries. Some cases we have addressed in the past include:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- People injured by negligent doctors or nurses
- Unsafe products
- Prescription medication injuries
- Slip-and-fall injuries
- Unsafe working conditions
Many of these cases can be settled outside of court, but we can litigate if necessary to secure the compensation you deserve. We will remain in close communication during the entire process. If you ever have questions, just ask.
What Kind Of Compensation Can I Receive?
This will depend on the exact nature of your injury, but most injury settlements involve the following things:
- Medical expenses, both present and future
- Lost income, both present and future
- Emotional distress
- Pain and suffering
For egregious cases of flagrant and willful injury, you may be able to receive punitive damages as well. Our lawyers will make full use of doctors, accident reconstruction analysts, engineers and other professionals to build the strongest possible case on your behalf.
What Counts As Medical Malpractice?
Malpractice occurs when a medical professional does not adhere to legally mandated standard of care. In other words, a physician violates the standard of care when they do not do what another reasonable physician would have done in the same situation. To prove that medical malpractice occurred, our attorneys will show that:
- You were the doctor’s patient.
- The doctor was negligent in their treatment.
- This negligence was the specific cause of your injury.
- The injury resulted in pain, suffering, bills or other damages.
Medical malpractice cases frequently involve failing to diagnose a condition, treating a condition improperly or not warning a patient of the risks involved in a particular kind of treatment.
