Medical Malpractice Claims

Medical Malpractice

“It’s a chilling reality… Preventable medical errors persist as the No. 3 killer in the U.S.- third only to heart disease and cancer- claiming the lives of some 400,000 people each year” (HealthcareITnews.com, July 13, 2014). A malpractice claim exists if a medical provider’s negligence causes injury or death of a patient. Though these injuries may not be immediately apparent, as in birth injury cases, it is imperative that you contact a legal professional as soon as you have reason to believe a medical professional injured you or a loved one. Insurance companies want to settle with an injured person directly, to prevent them from hiring an attorney who could increase the settlement value of the claim.

Our medical malpractice lawyers have recovered millions of dollars for clients in settlements and verdict, including a $3 million dollar settlement for a 56-year-old man. Our client suffered post-operative complications in the hospital as a result of negligence. He suffered respiratory and cardiac arrest resulting in brain damage and damage to his optic nerve. This caused permanent partial vision loss and balance issues when walking. The client’s case against the hospital was successfully settled for $3,000,000.
