Traveling surgical technologist Rocky Allen was indicted by a Federal Grand Jury after being caught stealing the most potent pain killer, Fentanyl, from an operating room at Swedish Medical Center (Englewood, Colorado). The grand jury investigation revealed that Allen is a carrier of ‘bloodborne pathogins’ (commonly HIV, Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C). Investigations has revealed that Allen had been terminated at numerous prior hospitals, and discharged from the Navy in 2011 (before being employed by any of the hospitals) for similar crimes. None of these crimes was reported by the Hospitals where Allen worked as required by federal (DEA) and state regulations and this allowed him to move from hospital to hospital, state to state, infecting perhaps as many as ten thousand patients. Rocky Allen is currently assigned to a half way house in Denver for drug treatment. Meanwhile, the hospitals involved, UW Northwest Hospital in Seattle, Washington, Scripps Green Hospital in La Jolla, California, Banner Thunderbird Hospital in Glendale, Arizona, HonorHealth John C. Lincoln Medical Center in Phoenix, AZ and HealthOne Swedish Medical Center in Englewood Colorado are denying any responsibility to patients, but have been ordered by state Health Departments to notify patients to be tested for the pathogens. The testing will be ordered by and paid for by the hospitals. Test results will go to the hospitals, then get reported to patients by the hospitals.
Denver trial lawyer Jim Avery has commenced lawsuits on behalf of dozens of patients in multiple state courts against the hospitals for reckless conduct in failing to conduct a basic background check which would have exposed the prior drug abuse conviction and prevented him from working in the Operating Rooms where thousands of patients have been exposed to dirty needles from drug diversion activities. If you or a loved one has been effected by this incident, and would like to join the patient action, please fill out the contact form on this page or call Jim Avery at 866-987-4368 (866-9-URGENT).

Being involved in an accident that leads to a spinal cord injury, a brain injury or a wrongful death is a traumatic and devastating time for you and your family. An unexpected situation such as this can leave one confused and emotionally upset, unsure of what to do next. A specialized top brain & spinal cord injury and wrongful death lawyer with long term catastrophic loss experience can provide you with peace of mind, through the caring and dedicated legal representation you need in such cases. Your first priority after a traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury is to ensure you receive quality medical treatment and begin the process of recovery. The legal staff at Avery Law Firm will take over the legal aspects of your claim, ensuring you are well-protected with regard to the medical treatment you are entitled to as well as every other aspect of your claim. We can also refer you to quality medical providers that can be relied upon to be highly cooperative witnesses on your behalf. With over 30 years experience working in the medical community, our firm has a reputation for representing people with catastrophic meritorious claims. As a result, the Firm has developed an extensive network of highly qualified physicians and other professionals that will make your case more persuasive and valuable.
Making a catastrophic personal injury claim against the person or entity responsible for causing your injuries may grant you the opportunity to recover financial compensation that will cover your medical bills, loss of past and future earnings, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life and various other out-of-pocket expenses or damages you have sustained. In almost all cases, compensation is derived from insurance that has been designed to cover the type of injury claim that you are making. That insurance is there for two reasons, to protect the financial well-being of the person who caused the injury and to compensate you, the victim of an injury. Seeking justice can also bring you much-needed peace of mind, and building a more secure future can help to relieve some of the stress you may be experiencing. By contacting us early in the process, we can help direct you to a successful result, because we know through experience what insurance companies and juries will focus upon when considering the amount of your recovery. Not all cases are equal, even if the injury is similar, because your lawyer must know what insurance companies and juries will look for in valuing your claim, and how to present that evidence in a highly credible and persuasive manner.
We offer free initial consultations and don't get paid until and unless you do, whether its an out-of-court settlement or after winning a jury verdict. If we agree to take on your case, there will typically be no retainers, no hourly billing, no attorney consultation fees. We'll initially cover all of the investigation, research and records or paperwork costs that may be associated with your case. After you win your case, we get a standard percentage (one-third to forty percent depending on the complexity and difficulty of your case) of the settlement or verdict reward. If we decline your case, there is no fee for our work or the investigation performed on your behalf, so there's little risk and no upfront costs for you and a larger incentive for us to collect damages in your case.
