Extensive Experience in All Areas of Medical Negligence Claims
Contact us to arrange a free consultation and case evaluation if you have suffered an injury, or lost a loved one following medical care in any area of health care, including:
- Physician Negligence: Licensed doctors and medical professionals must provide the accepted standard of care when diagnosing and treating their patients.
- Opioid Over-Prescription: In the last decade, opioid prescriptions have tripled. Data shows that physicians too often are negligent in overprescribing opioids which have highly addictive qualities.
- Birth Injuries: From your initial consultation with a general practitioner through prenatal care, labor and delivery and neonatal care, doctors, nurses and hospital staff are responsible for using accepted levels of care and precautions to protect you and your baby from injury or illness. We also represent individuals and families in litigation matters relating to wrongful birth claims against medical professionals.
- Misdiagnosis: General practitioners and specialists have a full array of tests available to them for the proper and timely diagnosis of cancers and other medical conditions. We represent victims who have suffered from a misdiagnosis or a delayed diagnosis.
- Hospital Negligence: Proper and safe hospital procedures are a significant component of the level of medical care we have a right to expect. Every year, thousands of people are injured or die as a result of medical mistakes including surgical errors, incorrect files and charts, medication mistakes or lack of communication between hospital physicians and the patient’s general practitioner.
- Nursing Home Negligence: Residents in nursing homes and long-term care facilities have a right to expect proper health care and dignified treatment. If your elderly or infirmed loved one has suffered an injury or died as a result of negligence or improper diagnosis or medical care, you have the right to pursue justice through the courts.
- Power Morcellators: Power morcellators are medical devices widely used by gynecologic surgeons and other surgical specialists. Recently, the FDA has issued warning against the use of these devices because they have been linked with an increased risk for the spread of certain types of cancer.
- Fatal Medical Malpractice: Death resulting from surgical errors, hospital errors, misdiagnosis or medical mistakes.
- What to Expect in a Medical Malpractice Case: Our medical malpractice lawyers will review your case, request your medical records, weigh opinions of medical experts, prepare a formal complaint against the negligent health care provider, and see your case through all phases of litigation.
