medical providers. Because these cases are often complex and require medical experts to prove a case, we have access to and consult with doctors, nurses, and a doctor/lawyer to review the facts or your case, and to provide the medical insight necessary to determine if there was negligence or substandard care.

Medical negligence or medical malpractice claims arise all too frequently, and they occur in hospitals, doctors’ offices, surgi-centers, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, wound centers, and wherever medical treatment is provided. According to one study, more than 80,000 people die each year because of medical mistakes, with even more victims severely injured because of doctor or hospital errors.

Representing victims of medical negligence, requires an excellent understanding of medicine; access to physicians willing to review potential cases and prepared to testify when the facts have merit; experience with the unique legal principles, rules, and law that apply to this specialized field of law; and tenacity in rooting out the facts. It also requires an appreciation and sensitivity to the devastating effects of medical malpractice upon not only the injured victim, but also upon family members. Specific experience in litigating this type of case is important to achieving a successful outcome.
