What is medical malpractice?

Malpractice occurs when medical professionals breach the duty of care they owe their patients, either through negligent actions or by failing to act. In collaboration with experts in the medical field related to your case, we examine the circumstances of your care and treatment to see if a doctor or hospital violated the standard of care and caused you unnecessary harm.

Common types of medical malpractice include:

  • Failure to diagnose; misdiagnosis
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Delay of care
  • Medication errors
  • Failure to treat
  • Surgical errors
  • Improper hospital care

Medical negligence and malpractice often result in permanent injury. In extreme cases, malpractice can lead to the death of the patient. You should be able to trust that your caretaker— whether it be your doctor, nurse or nursing home provider— is performing his or her job according to the standard of care.

Medical Malpractice

Seeking the justice provided by law.

Medical malpractice litigation is not about vengeance, and no one can undo the physical harm that is caused by malpractice. It is about making things right with the only remedy that the law can provide – compensation for losses. As an attorney, I have successfully obtained significant compensation on behalf of patients who have suffered due to malpractice. See a list of some results that have been obtained in various cases that I have handled.
