The Powless Law Firm is in your corner.
Our firm represents individuals and families whose lives have been turned upside down due to the egregious neglect and misconduct of others. We help people who would prefer to never see a courtroom — but who are left with no other means of obtaining the answers and accountability they deserve. Because our clients want to assure that what happened to them will not happen to someone else, they choose to place their trust in our justice system, rather than be intimidated into silence by powerful defendants and their insurance companies.
We believe that while medical errors and nursing home abuse and neglect occur much too frequently, and that most problems are attributable to a relatively small percentage of healthcare providers or nursing facilities that routinely fail to take the appropriate precautions to protect their patients and or residents. Unfortunately, those responsible for these repeated failures are never held accountable by their peers or their oversight bodies. Too often the only means of seeking accountability and answers on behalf of victims of tragic medical errors is by aggressively pursuing a civil lawsuit. We further believe that by holding reckless providers accountable, we can help victims and their families force changes in the care where needed to help make sure such tragedies are not repeated for future patients.
Cases involving medical negligence are challenging in many ways; the defendants are often influential and formidable insurance companies, nursing home corporations, and healthcare conglomerates. Our firm is ready to fight for you with the skills and resources required of these complex cases. We take great pride in working with our clients to help make a difference, not only in the courtroom, but in the lives of others. We match our clients’ courage and conviction with experience, intensive preparation, and the diligence and determination their cases and causes deserve.
If you feel that you or a loved one has been victimized by nursing home or medical negligence please contact our office. We will discuss with you the facts of your case and can consult you on your specific options. Initial consultations are always free and no fee is ever collected unless a settlement is reached.
