Medical Malpractice Attorneys
Our medical malpractice attorneys know that our over 464,000 residents seek medical care for many different reasons.
Whether it is an annual primary care visit, a trip to the emergency room, or a scheduled surgery, no one should seek and receive hurt in the process.
Unfortunately, our lawyers know that an estimated 1 million people are hurt by medical negligence and medical errors nationwide each year.
And, sadly, medical malpractice is thought to be the third-leading cause of death in the U.S., according to a recent study by Johns Hopkins University, accounting for approximately 250,000 fatalities each year.

Who Can Be Held Liable for Medical Malpractice Injuries or Fatalities?
Our medical malpractice attorneys review each of our client’s specific and unique injury circumstances to determine who may be held liable for their financial recovery.
While each case is unique, some of the most common liable parties may include:
- Medical support staff
- Hospitals, medical facilities, and surgical centers
- Pharmaceutical companies
- Plastic Surgeons
Medical malpractice can also occur when administrators at small and large medical facilities alike fail to remove incompetent staff or are negligent in their hiring practices, which may include failing to run the necessary background checks on those who turn out to be dangerous employees.
Getting hurt while seeking medical care is unacceptable and can change the trajectory of your health without notice. If this has happened to you, contact our skilled lawyers for a free consultation today. We can help you determine who is liable for your injuries and pursue each party for your full financial recovery.
How Can I Prove My Injuries Were Caused by Medical Malpractice?
Our experienced medical malpractice attorneys know that pursuing a hospital or another medical provider is a difficult scenario for anyone who has been hurt while seeking care.
The medical facility, their insurance providers, and legal advisors will team up to deny your allegations that medical malpractice occurred while denying your claim immediately unless you have the necessary evidence to prove they are liable.
That is where we come in.
Our medical malpractice lawyers will begin evaluating your case to ensure the first necessary component of a lawsuit exists. That means we must first prove there was a breach of the standard of care by the medical provider.
Next, we must prove the provider’s negligence and breach of care caused your injuries.
Finally, we must prove that you suffered damages because of the medical provider’s negligence.
Damages may include significant medical expenses, lost wages from your inability to work, and any extensive pain and suffering that was suffered because of medical malpractice.
Our dedicated medical malpractice attorneys have the resources you need to pursue your claim with confidence.
