Medical Malpractice

Are you one of the many who have been injured, misdiagnosed or lost a loved one to a physician or health care worker's medical error? Our attorneys are committed to ensuring that our clients' who have been victimized by medical malpractice receive the compensation to which they are entitled. Working closely with our clients, we analyze their case and determine whether negotiation of a settlement or a trial is in their best interests. Physicians offer life and hope to millions of Americans each year. Unfortunately, many patients suffer injury or death due to medical mistakes, ignorance, negligence and inexperience. It has been reported that an estimated 98,000 patients die each year as a result of medical error in hospitals alone and this estimate does not include mistakes made in other healthcare settings such as physicians' offices, emergency care centers nursing homes and other healthcare environments. Our nation spends an estimated $17 billion per year on costs associated with preventable medical errors.



A physician is determined to be negligent when they fail to use the same degree of skill and learning, under the same or similar circumstances, that are used by other members of their profession.

Leading types of malpractice suits include:

  • Wrongful death
  • Hospital, physician and nursing negligence
  • Birth defects or injuries
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Pharmaceutical errors
  • Nursing home and elder abuse injuries

Proof of negligence is required to win damages in medical malpractice cases. Damages may be economic (lost wages, medical expenses), non-economic (pain and suffering) or punitive (punishment for reckless or malicious behavior). Damages may also include compensation for future monies such as medical care and loss of earnings.
