Our medical malpractice attorneys have decades of combined litigation experience. We use our knowledge of the law and our experience in medical malpractice cases to provide the vigorous representation you deserve.

Aggressive Representation

We are committed to seeking full compensation for our clients. When doctors, nurses and other medical professionals commit errors in the emergency room, the result is often catastrophic.

A failure to timely diagnose early warning signs of a heart attack can cost a patient his or her life. A failure to timely diagnose cancer can significantly limit the number of available medical options a patient has to fight cancer. A failure to properly take a patient’s vital signs or properly read a medical chart to dispense the correct medication can have serious or fatal consequences.

If you have been injured or you have lost a loved one due to medical negligence, you have a right to receive compensation. We aggressively pursue full compensation on behalf of our clients for pain and suffering, past and future medical bills, lost earning capacity, costs of medical rehabilitation and other available relief.

Have Questions?

  • If I hire an attorney but do not want to go to trial, can I settle?
    In the course of preparing a case for trial, your personal injury attorney will work with the defense attorneys and insurance companies in an effort to secure a fair settlement for you and your family. The final decision to accept an offer of settlement or go to trial is yours alone to make.

  • If arrested, what steps can I take on my behalf?

    1. Do not discuss your situation with anyone except your attorney.

    2. Unless your attorney says otherwise, do not discuss your case with law enforcement.

    3. Request to have your attorney present if you are to be put in a lineup or subjected to testing.

    4. Remain calm and courteous. Allow your attorney to speak for you to ensure that your rights are protected and you are given all the benefits afforded to you under the law.

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
