Medical Malpractice

If you’ve been hurt by the negligence of a healthcare provider’s care, you are not alone – and I will fight for you. According to a 2011 study by the Journal of the American Medical Association, preventable medical errors led to 225,000 wrongful deaths in a single year, making medical malpractice the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States, following only heart disease and cancer.

Medical malpractice happens when the care provided by a doctor, hospital or other medical provider falls below the accepted standards of medical care and causes harm, resulting in death or serious injury to a patient. This harm can be temporary or even permanent, and result in the loss of income and economic stability. You have the right to file a lawsuit to receive compensation for the personal injury or injuries inflicted upon you or a family member.

These issues can be highly complex, so hiring a knowledgeable and experienced attorney is critical.
