Practice Areas

Medical Malpractice

 

     Medical malpractice can also be described as professional negligence, which is a specialized area of personal injury law. A thorough understanding of the law and medicine is required.

     Medical malpractice takes place when a health care provider fails to act within the standards of care required of them in treating a patient, and this failure causes or contributes to the death or injury to the patient.

     I will undertake a thorough analysis of your relevant medical records with the assistance of a medical expert before advising you whether or not your case has merit. This is a requirement under existing law.

     Every reasonable effort will be made to pursue fair and just compensation for the injury sustained. The firm has worked with the finest medical experts in various fields of medicine and will strive to achieve a successful result. Every case is handled as though a trial will be conducted. Settlement is reached only when a fair result can be obtained.

     Your case is as important to me as it to you. Personalized attention to detail separates my firm from all other medical malpractice firms. For a free personal consultation contact me.

     Clients are assisted from the initial occurrence with factual investigation of claims and all discovery and pretrial preparation including the retention and trial preparation of expert witnesses. It is critical to a thorough and complete defense that cases be treated from the outset as though a trial will be held. I have found that this approach lends itself to favorable dispositions prior to trial by motion practice or settlement. I have also sucessfully prosecuted numerous appeals.
