Focused Attention - Detailed Analysis

At Rice & Associates, Ltd., we represent families suffering from the effects of misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose serious medical conditions. From permanent disability to wrongful death, we have seen the consequences of improper medical diagnosis, treatment and care. Our firm is committed to aggressively representing your rights and holding negligent medical professionals to account.

Recently, one of the most prevalent cases we are seeing is the impact of misdiagnosed antibiotic-resistant infections. Likely, the worst offender is Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), MRSA causes more deaths in the United States than HIV.

This "superbug" is most likely to be contracted in hospitals and medical facilities than anywhere else. It enters the blood stream and attacks the body, causing symptoms that seem like other problems such as pneumonia, urinary tract infections and boils. Many times, misdiagnosis occurs and the assumed illness is treated leaving the underlying infection undiagnosed. Victims of untreated MRSA can become very ill, face amputation or even die.

If your family has suffered the effects of misdiagnosis, call our office. Our legal team will conduct a thorough analysis of your medical records and treatment history. We will also consult with professional experts to determine if significant damage can be proved in court. When we meet to discuss your claim, we will fully explain our retainer policy and fee schedule, determined by the final settlement or jury award.

We want to build a solid case so your family will receive a maximum settlement to fully care for future needs. We offer a free consultation to discuss your concerns and questions with a lawyer. Contact us Us to schedule a consultation.
