Handling Kidney Damage Cases Stemming From Medical Malpractice
When you have been told by your doctor that your kidney function has been reduced, you have end-stage renal disease (ESRD) or kidney failure, the cause of the issues needs to be discovered. In many cases, these types of kidney problems stem from medical malpractice and negligence.
If you believe your kidney issues are due to malpractice, take action immediately. It is especially important in medical malpractice cases to have an attorney on your side as soon as possible, as there are statutes of limitations on cases involving medical negligence. In general, you have two years from date of the medical mistake or error in order to file a claim.
If you believe you or a loved one has suffered kidney damage due to medical malpractice, turn to the office of John E. Marszalek, Attorney at Law. Our team of lawyers is ready to put the million-dollar-winning approach honed over more than 15 years to work on your case.

An example of our success:
A doctor misdiagnosed one of our clients and then the doctor died. The client was sent to another physician who told the client he had serious kidney problems and sent the client to see a kidney specialist who said the client had to go on dialysis. We investigated and found out that the dead physician missed the diagnosis of kidney damage because of his advanced age. He was not ordering the proper blood tests. After suing the dead doctor's estate and the hospital where he worked, the hospital was found responsible for the deceased doctor's actions. The case settled for seven figures.
