Today is Veterans Day, and at the Law Offices of Michael Barszcz, M.D., J.D., we would like to thank American veterans of all wars and honor their heroic service to our country. Thank you for your patriotism and courage, and for your sacrifice for the good of the nation.
Also worthy of recognition are the many dedicated and hardworking civilian and military surgeons, doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers. These professionals are dedicated to providing veterans with the high-quality medical care they deserve.
According to the Pew Research Center, one out of every 10 veterans living today was seriously injured while serving for the military, and 75 percent of the injuries were sustained during combat. Catastrophic injuries many veterans suffer include:
Injuries of this magnitude require not only emergency medical care, but often ongoing medical treatment as well. The vast majority of our nation’s healthcare professionals continue to perform their jobs with the knowledge and care required for the serious injuries of veterans. Negligent healthcare professionals who deviate from standards of care do a disservice to their responsible coworkers and medical peers.
If you have been injured by a negligent healthcare professional, please contact experienced medical malpractice attorney Michael Barszcz, M.D., J.D., to schedule a consultation.
