Your Experienced Guide in Medical Malpractice Cases

We hold the medical industry to the highest standards, trusting medical professionals with our lives. Despite a health care provider’s best intentions, ugly things happen due to negligence, bad practices or accidental occurrences. Medical malfeasance can turn a doctor or hospital visit into a personal nightmare that can harm, bankrupt, maim or even lead to wrongful death.

The aftermath of medical malpractice is heartbreaking. After over 40 years of litigating these and similar cases, it is still hard to ease the pain these mistakes cause. But, we can seek justice and hold the right people responsible.

What Is Considered Medical Malpractice?

When a hospital, medical facility, nursing home, pharmacist, doctor, nurse or another licensed health care professional fails to provide proper treatment, the injured patient or surviving family may have a cause to file a medical malpractice claim against the responsible professional or parties. The compensation can be rewarding for the aggrieved parties. In addition, a winning verdict sends a message to the provider to seek better systems to ensure no similar cases occur.

Medical malpractice can take the form of any of these events, from which we can initiate a claim or lawsuit for:

  • Nursing home abuse

  • Defective medical products

  • Hospital liability

  • Improper treatment

  • Prescription drug error

  • Pediatric malpractice

  • Failure to diagnose

  • Surgery mistakes

  • Birth trauma

Hold Medical Professionals Responsible


Not every unfortunate outcome is due to malpractice. Even in those instances where you, as a layperson, may feel certain a doctor “missed something” or a nurse failed to report an incident you are certain led to needless pain and suffering. It takes much more than a “gut” feeling to bring an injury to a lawsuit.
