Medical Malpractice

Medical providers have advanced education and training, but, unfortunately, they sometimes make errors in their diagnosis or treatment – and their mistakes are sometimes deadly.

Request Malpractice Consultation

Surgical errors, birth injuries, misdiagnoses, failure to make a timely diagnosis . . . all of these medical mistakes by physicians and other healthcare providers can leave patients with lasting debilities and huge medical expenses. Personal injury attorneys seek compensation for people who have been injured by someone else’s negligence or recklessness. This includes filing medical malpractice lawsuits against doctors, nurses, lab techs, clinicians, and others in the healthcare field who have failed to provide a reasonable standard of care. Such litigation requires skilled investigation and the testimony of medical experts and is often handled on a contingency fee basis because of the high costs associated with such an action. For that same reason, defendant doctors and their insurance companies often seek resolution through settlement before the trial commences.
