Passion For Taking Medical Malpractice Cases To Trial

Before any medical malpractice claim can be filed, an attorney must be able to get a professional expert to testify that the acting doctor, nurse or hospital acted negligently. Our firm works with a large network of medical professionals, experienced in handling complex injury, wrongful death and medical malpractice claims involving:

  • Injuries to your child during birth, such as cerebral palsy and shoulder dystocia
  • Errors that occur in the emergency room due to negligence
  • Failing to diagnose or misdiagnosing a disease like cancer
  • Incorrect prescriptions or other medication errors
  • Making an error during surgery
  • Suffering due to the negligence of hospital staff

As your representation, we will take a personalized and comprehensive approach to identify the cause of injury, target responsible parties and aggressively pursue your right to recovery. Every time a doctor pays a claim, it is reported to a national data bank and his or her premiums will go up. For an insurance company to settle, the doctor has to consent, but most never do because they see it as a personal affront to their professional dignity.

While some medical malpractice claims with hospitals or corporations may settle, most cases will end up in trial. Our experienced trial attorneys can effectively handle your case and achieve results.
