Professional Negligence

Since 2003 we have held dozens of physicians, medical practices, nurses, nursing homes, home health providers, pharmacies, pharmacists, and dentists accountable for medical errors that harmed our clients.  The cases are complex, and often our clients are complicated.  Our strategy is total commitment to getting to know each client and their case completely, and pursuing a tailor made recovery one case at a time.

Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice occurs when a doctor or other health provider makes a “Medical Error” that causes injury or hinders a patient’s recovery.

Nursing Negligence

Most often, these claims are based on the conduct and policies of nurses, administrators, and managers of long term care or assisted living facilities.

Pharmacy Negligence

Pharmacy Negligence occurs most often when a pharmacist or technician dispenses the wrong medicine or dose or provides incorrect packaging or instructions. This can happen in a retail pharmacy, hospital, or nursing home. 

Dental Negligence

Dental Negligence claims involve “medical errors” made by a dentist or their staff during an examination or treatment or in the course of developing a treatment plan.

Tips For Getting Your Claim Evaluated

Chronology: One of the most helpful things a Claimant can do is write down what happened. List important facts in the order they occurred.  Start from the time you became aware of the symptom or problem.  Significant facts include symptoms, the doctor’s description of the problem (diagnosis), exams, tests, treatments, and your expected progress (prognosis).  You should also make a list of the names of all the doctors, nurses, aides, and technicians that may know about your injury, illness, or treatment.

Early Legal Consultation enhances your chance of recovery because these claims must be filed quickly, but they require a lengthy complex investigation.  The sooner we begin, the sooner we can:

    • Identify the “medical errors”;
    • Help you to ask the right questions;
    • Help you limit corruption and alteration of your records;
    • Locate essential evidence; and
    • Secure expert analysis.

Q&A

A Medical Error occurs when a provider’s decision, act, or failure to act falls outside the standards deemed acceptable according to the mainstream opinion of similar providers. Those standards can be written or reflect unwritten customs and practices.

Contact us for a free consultation. We will evaluate your claim and show you the path to recovery at no risk to you.  You pay no fee or costs unless you make a recovery.

It depends on factors that are unique to your incident.  The purpose of the initial consultation is to learn facts that frame your potential recovery.  Our investigation will also impact the value of your claim. We are ready to get started when you are.

The deadline, which is called the “Statute of Limitations,” is two years from the date of injury.  However, in medical malpractice cases it can be difficult to determine the date an injury occurred, and often even more difficult to prove it.  Other timing rules can extend the deadline.  Because the determination of the deadline can require a detailed and complex analysis of legal rules and medical causation issues, you should consult an attorney as soon as possible.  Early consultation gives your lawyer the best chance to start your claim before the deadline.

Every case is different.  We know how to expedite the process when the client needs a speedy resolution.  However, it usually takes more time to maximize the recovery.  We will advise you of the options and design an approach that meets your objectives.
