Medical Malpractice


Medical professionals have a responsibility to ensure their patients receive the best possible care and treatment. They’re bound to a high level of professional competency, because even a small mistake can be deadly. Most healthcare providers meet this standard. However, there are exceptions. Medical malpractice is a particularly complex and challenging area of law, and it’s critical victims and their families hire a malpractice law firm to stand up to aggressive and powerful medical companies. Our misdiagnosis and medical injury lawyers will help you pursue justice.

$1 Million

Settlement for Failure to Diagnose Pulmonary Embolism

This hard fought recovery was achieved for the widow of a 50-year-old man who died hours after having elective knee surgery.

Settlement for Medical Malpractice: Failure to Diagnose Cancer

A 28-year-old female patient went to her Primary Care Physician (PCP) because she was concerned about an unusual mole on her left calf. Despite the concerns of a pathologist following a biopsy, the PCP failed to counsel the patient regarding any abnormalities, perform a re-excision, or refer her to a specialist for further treatment. One year later, the mole had progressed into a Stage III malignant melanoma, giving her a 50% (or 5-year) survival rate.

$1 Million
