Advocacy in Connection with Medical Malpractice & Negligence
Medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death in the United States. You read that right. Those are not the words of Plaintiff attorneys. They are the words of the doctors that study medical malpractice and are written in the medical literature published in peer-reviewed journals.
Medical malpractice cases are brought by injured patients who can show that a healthcare provider failed to provide acceptable care that was the cause of their injury. That sounds simple enough, but health law can be particularly complex. Special legislation is written to protect health care providers on the pretext that the health care providers are the ones who need protection. It is imperative that you have a skilled lawyer by your side. Our team of attorneys brings the experience you need when it matters most.
TYPES OF CLAIMS
Medical malpractice claims run the gambit of care, from the negligence of primary care doctors who ignore signs and symptoms of serious illness to surgical errors like removing the wrong lung. Every case of malpractice is serious but usually, only those claims that lead to significant injury, disability or death are truly viable due to the enormous burden placed on patients by state legislators who are trying to protect healthcare providers from liability. No case can be filed without the support of medical expert testimony that can withstand attack, so the cost of litigation rises very quickly for those who have been injured. Our team of attorneys will advance the cost of litigation and recover those costs and attorney fees only in the event of a successful settlement or trial.
