Medical malpractice occurs when a medical practitioner, usually a doctor or nurse, deviates from an accepted standard of medical care or practice.  To be actionable in court, medical malpractice must cause injury or death.  Short of death, malpractice injuries are often permanently, even totally, disabling.  They can cause a lifetime of medical treatment and expense, permanent disability, loss of income, and unrelenting pain and suffering.

If medical negligence has caused you or a loved one catastrophic injury or death, make no mistake, you need the assistance of a skilled and experienced medical malpractice attorney.  Simply put, medical malpractice cases are complex, time consuming and expensive to pursue.   They are complex, because they involve or require:

  • Retrieval and assembly of large amounts of medical, financial, personal, and career-related information and documentation
  • Aptitude for the pertinent medical processes and terminology
  • Interaction with qualified experts in medicine, economics, vocational evaluation, and life care planning
  • Extraordinary skill in the presentation of evidence in the courtroom
