We believe that
while medical errors and neglect occur much too
frequently, most problems are attributable to a
relatively small percentage of healthcare providers
that routinely fail to take appropriate precautions
to protect their patients. Unfortunately, those
responsible for these repeated failures are never
held accountable by their peers or their oversight
bodies. Too often the only means of seeking
accountability and answers on behalf of victims of
tragic medical errors is by aggressively pursuing a
civil lawsuit. We further believe that by holding
reckless providers accountable, we can help victims
and their families force changes in the care where
needed to help make sure such tragedies are not
repeated for future patients.
Jeff Powless has
successfully represented victims and their families
in cases involving a variety of complex medical
issues. Among the more significant cases Jeff
Powless has successfully handled are the following:
hospital nurse failed to properly insert and monitor
a foley catheter prior to and during a delivery,
resulting in problems with incontinence.
failed to take appropriate steps to diagnose breast
cancer, resulting in worsened prognosis.

and properly care for a patient who was at risk for
developing pressure sores.
home failed to properly care for and monitor

failed to address known breast lumps in patient,

It is important
to keep in mind that every case is different and no
attorney can guarantee success in any future case.
Therefore, no cases (including those listed above)
can be considered "representative" of any other
future case. In selecting an attorney, you
should feel free to ask them about their experience
and prior cases, but also ask them how they approach
their cases. We work hard for our clients, and
we are always more than happy to discuss our
experience, share the details our record of success,
and explain our plan for undertaking new cases.
(Results vary depending upon
individual facts of cases.)
While the facts
of every case are different, our
basic approach is not. We attribute
our success to the following:
carefully scrutinize the
medical records with
the defendants' prior
history of medical
errors and mistakes
conduct thorough written
questioning of the
defendants to obtain
important documents and
conduct oral questioning
of the defendants and
other witnesses under
oath before a court
utilize the latest
investigate, prepare and
present our case
