    Medical Malpractice

    The rate of medical errors is high enough to make it the third leading cause of death in the United States. Medical malpractice can be the result of a variety of errors including misdiagnosis, medication error, anesthesia error, or childbirth injuries, to name a few. If you or a loved one has suffered due to medical negligence, contact our firm as soon as possible.

    Nursing Home Neglect & Abuse

    Nursing home neglect often stems from understaffing, negligent hiring practices, or inadequate training. Because of this, you can hold the nursing home responsible for the neglect of your loved one. We often think of the elderly when we think of nursing homes, but do not forget that many younger residents with disabilities reside in assisted living environments and are also exposed to this type of abuse. Contact us if you believe your loved one is experiencing abuse at the hands of a nursing home or assisted living situation.

    Wrongful Death

Highest Respect And Gratitude

Mr. Finn has my highest respect and gratitude for the legal services he performed on behalf of my family. We received the justice and monetary compensation we sought, and in the process were regularly amazed by his many fine personal qualities. He demonstrated extraordinary, genuine respect to his disabled client, our mother as if she was a member of his own family. He listened patiently to us, talked to us in terms we could understand and made the whole process as easy for us as possible. He was sincere, empathetic, and as much about justice as restitution.

Shattering Glass in Car Accident
Auto and Truck Accidents—According to Driver Knowledge, there are six million auto accidents in the United States each year. While not all of those accidents are serious, about 90 people are killed every day from an auto accident. Three million are injured, with two million of those suffering some level of permanent injury. Even though seatbelts reduce the risk of death by 45 percent, one in seven people who get into a vehicle, do not buckle up. Being involved in a serious auto or truck accident can change your life in ways you cannot even imagine. You may be left with serious injuries and no way to pay the medical bills which are mounting alarmingly. You may be unable to return to work because of your injuries, therefore unable to pay your normal monthly expenses. If you are the primary breadwinner in your family, your situation may seem hopeless. Larry Finn can help get you back on your feet, get the medical treatment you need, and the compensation you are entitled to receive due to the negligence of another driver.

Shopping Cart
Product Liability—When a consumer product is either defectively designed or defectively manufactured, those who use the product can sustain serious injury. Product liability law covers such injuries, helping determine the liable party and secure an equitable settlement for the injuries. Product liability laws vary from state to state, depending on each states’ individual laws concerning strict liability, negligence, and breach of warranty. Your attorney from the Finn Law Firm can help determine who the liable party is—the manufacturer, the designer of the product, the company that assembles or installs the product, the retailer, or the wholesaler.

Elderly Man Standing By Window
Elder Abuse & Neglect—Since the elderly are a particularly vulnerable group who may not be able to tell someone about the abuse, it is difficult to say just how often elder abuse occurs. Elder abuse is broken down into physical abuse, mental/psychological abuse, financial abuse, sexual abuse, and neglect. As far as physical abuse is concerned, even when an elderly person has bruises or other physical signs of abuse, the abuser may explain these away as normal aging, saying the older person fell or bumped into something. Those with dementia, Alzheimer’s, and other cognitive issues are particularly at risk for nursing home abuse and neglect. Do not allow nursing home abuse or neglect to go unpunished—contact the Finn Law Firm.

Elderly Person with Hands Folded on Lap
Nursing home abuse or neglect can cause significant pain and suffering to the victim of the abuse or neglect, as well as to the victim’s loved ones. Nursing homes may try to cut costs by understaffing or may hire staff who are not properly trained, or who have not had a proper background check performed. Nursing home abuse against the elderly is a horrific crime. What many people may be unaware of is that a significant number of disabled younger adults reside in assisted living facilities. These disabled adults are provided with personal care, including medication management, bathing, dressing, eating, and transportation. Unfortunately, sometimes the very people entrusted to care for these disabled adults may also be the ones who take advantage. Just like abuse against the elderly in a nursing home, abuse against the disabled can cause the victim and their family heartache and pain. And, like the elderly, this vulnerable group may be unable to testify against the perpetrator. For this reason, loved ones may choose to pursue a civil case rather than a criminal case. If your loved one has suffered abuse while in an institutional setting, the Finn Law Firm wants to help.

Doctor with Clipboard
Medical malpractice or medical negligence can have devastating consequences. Keep in mind that a bad medical outcome does not automatically signal medical malpractice. Your injuries must be the result of a healthcare provider who acted or failed to act differently than another medical professional would have done, given the same set of circumstances. Some of the most common medical malpractice claims stem from a misdiagnosis or a failure to properly diagnose a medical condition. When either of these occurs, valuable time that could have been spent treating the patient is lost. Surgical errors and anesthesia errors are also common medical malpractice claims. Because the rate of medical errors is high enough to make it the third leading cause of death in the United States—behind cancer and heart disease—work is being done to minimize these unnecessary medical errors. If you are the victim of medical malpractice, contact the Finn Law Firm as soon as possible.

Candles
When a catastrophic injury (brain trauma, spinal cord injury, amputation, burn injuries, disfigurement, loss of vision, or severe internal injuries) occur, the victim will have years—or a lifetime—of medical expenses related to the injury. It is imperative that the negligent party compensate the victim for those expenses, as well as for lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. When a family loses a loved one due to negligence, a wrongful death claim may be filed to recover funeral expenses, medical expenses, future lost wages, loss of consortium, loss of parental guidance, and other damages. Attorney Larry Finn can help you hold the negligent party responsible, obtaining a fair settlement on your behalf.
