Winfield, WV Medical Malpractice Attorney

Aggressive Legal Representation for All Types of Medical Negligence

Death by Doctor In Putnam County: When the Hands That Heal Instead Harm and Kill

Every day, the actions of incompetent, careless, and negligent medical providers cause unimaginable suffering and death across the United States – and right here in Putnam County, WV. While obviously not indicative of all healthcare providers, reputable estimates of healthcare provider-caused deaths from preventable errors range from 500 deaths every 48 hours to being the third leading cause of death in the country (figures that predictably have left many in the medical industry scrambling to defend themselves by redefining medical error to exclude failure to diagnose, delayed diagnosis, and failure to recognize, and treat serious health problems, or otherwise placing the blame on their victims). Tragically, actual deaths resulting from medical malpractice may even be much higher, as figures were largely extracted from insurance claim and mortality data, with no truly objective accounting of these deaths.

Preventable Medical Error In Putnam County, WV– Reprehensible and ILLEGAL

When it comes to preventable medical error-based harm alone, in the absence of death, the numbers are very likely astronomical. In any case, instead of accepting accountability and making necessary changes to protect those they swore to serve, many medical providers instead shrug off responsibility, leaving millions of seriously injured or deceased patient victims in their wake. At Angotti & Straface Attorneys at Law, we find this absolutely reprehensible. More importantly, it is illegal. We hold negligent doctors and medical providers accountable in Putnam County and all of West Virginia.

Always Remember: Police, investigators, and law enforcement personnel have been well-trained to elicit specific responses from you that can affect your legal rights.

Do not speak to the police. Instead, contact Angotti & Straface Attorneys at Law for a confidential, complimentary review of your case.
