Medical Malpractice Attorney
Protecting people who’ve been injured due to a doctor or hospital’s negligence.
Seeing a doctor or going to a hospital can be a stressful experience. Between the physical discomfort or pain and the high cost of care, many people feel vulnerable when seeking medical treatment. But we expect doctors and hospitals to provide quality care for their patients. However, sometimes they make mistakes that can lead to serious injury or even death for the patient.
According to the Journal of Patient Safety, about 21,000 deaths from medical errors are reported each year. It’s estimated that the actual number of deaths from medical errors is even higher, as many go unreported. Causes of medical malpractice may include, but are not limited to:
- Surgical errors
- Failure to diagnose properly
- Errors in treatment
A medical malpractice injury can have a terrible effect on your life. After being traumatized by the mistakes of medical staff, you may have to deal with even more hospital and doctor visits to treat your injuries. Malpractice may also lead to permanent disability, chronic pain or problems, and death.

Medical Malpractice Liability & Damage Recovery
