Kidney Disease Law Attorneys
More than 615,000 people in the United States have end-stage renal failure, according to the National Kidney Foundation. About 430,000 are dialysis patients, and more than 185,000 people in the U.S. are kidney transplant recipients. In 2011, more than 92,000 people died from a kidney-related medical condition. When kidney failure is diagnosed early and properly, progress from the early stages to advanced kidney failure can be slowed or even halted, improving quality of life and reducing the negative toll it takes on one’s life. In too many cases, however, early diagnosis and proper treatment simply do not happen, and patients suffer serious symptoms that can ultimately lead to death, including kidney damage, kidney failure, renal disease, or renal insufficiency. For many, this grim reality is avoidable, but only with the proper care. When tests aren’t conducted or the results are not interpreted properly when a necessary referral to a specialist is not ordered, and when kidney disease isn’t treated or when it’s treated improperly, it’s considered medical malpractice and your physician may hold liability. Our goal is to help patients who are seeking compensation and help following an incidence of medical malpractice or medical accidents impacting patients with renal failure.
PLEASE NOTE: Our law firm only takes on cases that are within the prescribed statute of limitations for the state you reside in, therefore it is imperative to know the date when your diagnosis was made.
