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.

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.

One year later, the mole had progressed into a Stage III malignant melanoma, giving her a 50% (or 5-year) survival rate.
