Medical errors injure and kill more patients than ever before. Preventable medical mistakes are the third-leading cause of death, behind heart disease and cancer. The most recent U.S. safety studies show that between 210,000 and 400,000 patients are killed in this country each year by preventable healthcare errors, and many more suffer non-fatal injuries.
When death or serious injury results from a healthcare provider’s failure to properly detect or treat a medical condition, you need an experienced medical malpractice attorney.
The medical insurance companies fight hard, and don’t accept responsibility until they are forced to. We are tenacious and aggressive, and know what it takes to bring the insurance companies to the table. We make sure you understand what it takes to make a successful medical malpractice claim, we keep you updated, and we answer your questions and concerns throughout the entire process.
Healthcare providers don’t have permission to commit malpractice just because a fine-print consent form was signed. Even if you were told about some risks and complications associated with your treatment, your healthcare provider must still meet minimum standards of care appropriate to your condition.
