Medical procedures and medical emergencies are often stressful and often confusing times for patients and their families. As much as we rely on our physicians, nurses, and medical technicians to help us navigate difficult health issues, we know that mistakes happen. In 2009, the Congressional Budget Office Report found that the total liability costs related to malpractice for healthcare providers was $35 billion. According to a recent study by two professors at John Hopkins University School of Medicine, medical errors are now the third leading cause of death in our country, ranking ahead of respiratory disease, accidents, and strokes. “We all know how common it is,” they said. “We also know how infrequently it is openly discussed.”
That being said, not every mistake by a medical professional can, or should, result in a lawsuit. In the event of an injury related to a medical procedure or course of treatment, our experienced team of medical malpractice lawyers will listen to your story, assist you in determining whether you have a case that is worth exploring, and if so, give you a realistic picture of what to expect and how your case is likely to unfold.
We pride ourselves on a selective approach to medical malpractice cases that allows us to maintain a high rate of success in a challenging area of the law and provide each case with the attention to detail that is necessary to maximize our clients’ chances at achieving a positive result.
