|Medical Malpractice Victim?|
In the United States every year, Medical Malpractice results in as many as 100,000 deaths and thousands more serious injuries. Only a small percentage – less than 15% – of these victims ever contact a medical lawyer for legal representation.
If something unfortunately happens to you or a loved one during a surgery or in a doctor’s care, you deserve to have the best possible answers and assistance during this difficult time.
A medical malpractice claim can take many forms. A claim in this area can be based on a negligent failure to diagnose or a misdiagnosis, a birth injury, hospital errors or surgical mistakes, prescription mistakes, and others errors.

Accurate identification of negligent medical errors requires a review and analysis by attorneys who know medicine and who have access and strong relationships to the appropriate medical experts.
