Worker's Compensation

Many people who are injured on the job can obtain benefits under the Worker’s Compensation Laws. These benefits are obtained directly through the worker's employer. However, the worker who is seriously injured on the job may file a separate lawsuit against a third party who caused the injury. This may be, for example, an injury caused by a ramp improperly placed by a delivery company, an injury sustained due to a defective machine, or an injury sustained due to defects in a building caused by negligence.

It you've sustained a serious injury on the job, don't assume that you are covered only by the Worker's Compensation Law. Call Schmelkin Associates, P.C. We can determine whether you can also obtain compensation from a third party responsible for the injury.

Nursing Home Negligence

Nursing homes are charged with providing proper care to their patients. Unfortunately, they sometimes put profit above care. Patients suffer as a result.

Improper staffing levels and overworked attendants are often the cause of injuries to our loved ones in a nursing home. Some of the serious injuries that can occur are fractures resulting from falls, bedsores leading to ulcers and possibly fatal infection, injuries caused by dehydration or malnutrition, and injuries caused by physical and sexual abuse.

Schmelkin Associates, P.C. can assist you if a friend or a loved one has sustained serious injuries as a result of improper care at a nursing home or other facility.

Injuries due to Faulty Medical Devices and Drugs

Great advances are being made in drug treatment, medical devices, and implants. However, in some cases these things may cause injury to the patient. 

On a regular basis we hear in the media that medical devices and implants have not been properly functioning and have caused injuries to patients. The Food and Drug Administration, which supervises this area, frequently issues warnings or recalls of drugs and medical devices.

Medical Malpractice

When a doctor, hospital or other medical provider fails to provide a patient with treatment within the proper standard of care, that provider may be found liable for medical malpractice if the failure causes injury to the patient. Medical malpractice may take many forms, such as failure to diagnose a condition, a surgical error, birth injuries or improper doses of medication. If these departures from good and accepted medical practice cause injury to the patient, they are actionable.
