RISPOLI LAW LEGAL SERVICES
Arizona's Adult Protective Services Act ("APSA") is designed to protect the state's vulnerable adult population from physical and emotional abuse and neglect as well as financial exploitation. Those who suffer injuries that are within the scope of APSA are provided additional protections that are not available for those injured based on other circumstances. Though commonly equated with "nursing home" abuse, APSA protects all vulnerable adults, whether their injuries occurred in a skilled nursing facility, an assisted living facility, a group home, or because of home health providers at the vulnerable adult's residence.
There are still more good doctors than bad ones out there, but pressure from insurance payment cuts, multiple physician specialties involved in a single patient's care, and an overloaded patient practice can lead almost any practitioner to commit medical malpractice if that doctor is not vigilant. When medical errors occur, litigating a case requires a complex understanding of the medical record and the procedure(s) involved. Such cases also require qualified experts that can clearly explain to the jury why the defendant failed to provide reasonable patient care. Having a background in a hard science, I have the technical skills required in addition to the legal ones to secure you the recovery you deserve.
Catastrophic Injury and Wrongful Death
Whether drawn out over a long period of time or in an instant, another's needless mistakes or intentional wrongdoings can change your life and your family's lives forever. When injuries are severe or if a person loses his or her life, defendants often will do whatever it takes to minimize their responsibility or your suffering. Catastrophic injuries and wrongful death cases, no matter the cause, require an experienced attorney that can navigate the terrain of the aftermath of these tragic events while pursuing the best resolution for the client.
A serious accident with any vehicle, whether the vehicles are cars, trucks or trailers, involves a tremendous amount of force that the human body absorbs. Such force often leads to devastating injuries. Every serious vehicular accident requires an in-depth investigation of the evidence of the scene and the comprehensive cataloging of documents, materials and witnesses. You need a good attorney, but also a good investigator.
Many times, somewhere in the corporate chain someone hatches an idea to generate "additional revenue" by charging the customer a "fee" to do something the company already did. Sometimes it is not clear at all what the company does to earn the fee. Often times the corporation misleads the customer into a situation where such fees are charged repeatedly. Although the dollar amounts may be small to each customer (at times they are not), collectively they can account for hundreds of millions of dollars of business. In these unfair situations, if you are willing to join a class, you can be a part of the effort to force companies to treat customers fairly and honestly.
