Confronting Medical Providers On Your Behalf

Medical malpractice means that a health care provider's carelessness or substandard treatment resulted in a patient's injury, illness or even wrongful death.

If you have been a victim of such negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses. However, confronting large hospitals and health care systems is challenging. On your own, you don't have much of a chance. With a skilled legal team on your side, however, you will be much better equipped to obtain the justice you deserve.

  • Neglecting or abusing nursing home residents
  • Failing to diagnose cancer, heart disease or other problems
  • Making mistakes during surgery such as operating on the wrong body part
  • Prescribing the wrong medication or the wrong dose
  • Ignoring fetal distress or otherwise contributing to birth injuries
