A Lawyer/Doctor Team that Will Get You The Justice You Deserve If You Have Been a Victim of Medical Malpractice

When you need medical attention, you go to a hospital or to see a doctor or other medical professional. Healthcare providers have received specific education and training that is supposed to help them treat your injuries or conditions. But just because doctors have specific education and training, it does not mean that they cannot or should not be held accountable when they make mistakes that harm their patients. While most doctors and hospitals provide very good care, occasionally mistakes are made that cause devastating and life changing injury to their patients. Doctors and other medical professionals are held to certain standards in their profession. When they fail to live up to those standards that is malpractice. Medical malpractice, therefore, is just a fancy legal term for negligence or carelessness. When a healthcare provider's malpractice causes harm or death to a patient, the hospital, doctor or other medical professional should be held accountable, just as any other person or professional would be if they're negligence or carelessness caused harm.

The Essentials of the Medical Malpractice Case

Medical malpractice cases are different from your typical personal injury case because they require proof by expert testimony. This means your medical malpractice lawyer must retain doctors or other appropriate specialists to help prove your case. We handle all of our cases, including medical malpractice cases, on a contingent fee basis which means you don't pay us a dime unless we obtain a recovery for you. We also advance all of the case related expenses on your case, including the fees charged by expert witnesses, and we do not ask you to reimburse us for these expenses unless we obtain a recovery for you.
