Nursing Negligence: How Malpractice Law Cares For You
From maintaining a sterile environment and monitoring patients, to dispensing medications and attending to mothers in labor, nurses at naval hospitals are expected to follow the same standards of care as nurses in civilian hospitals. Medical mistakes in either of these settings can be devastating, or even fatal. The medical malpractice lawyers at Cronin & Maxwell in Jacksonville, Florida, represent servicemen, servicewomen, retirees and their families in all cases involving nursing negligence.
As former naval officers, our attorneys are familiar with the many legal obstacles military personnel and retirees must face. We know our clients are entitled to the same professional health care as civilians and will not accept any injustice. If you, or a loved one, are injured by otherwise avoidable nursing negligence, contact our law office for a free initial consultation.
