Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is defined as negligent behavior by a healthcare provider, such as a large hospital, that deviates from normal standards of care and causes harm or death to the patient. To determine medical malpractice, a question is asked of the healthcare provider’s behavior: “What would a competent medical professional have done in this situation?” If the caregiver’s conduct was not to the standard of the profession and led to patient injury, then there may be a case for medical malpractice. If you or a loved one may have been the victim of medical malpractice, contact us for a free, confidential consultation. You can tell us your story, and we’ll help determine the next step for your case.

Personal Injury

Injury that results from the negligent behavior of another person or organization is the basis for a personal injury claim. The entity responsible for your injury, which may include a large insurance company, can be held accountable for compensation to cover medical bills, costs of future treatment, loss of income, and the burdens of your physical and emotional pain. Injury claims can range from non-life threatening dog bites and car accidents, to a devastating loss of life. Our firm can help you during this time. If you or a loved one suffered an injury caused by the actions of another person or company, contact us today to learn more about your legal rights and options. 

Pharmaceutical Litigation

Drug manufacturers are legally and ethically responsible for creating safe products and ensuring the continued safety of such products by conducting pre- and post-market research. If a drug is linked to adverse side effects, the pharmaceutical company has an immediate duty to alert consumers, doctors and the FDA, and to update the drug’s safety label to reflect all dangers. It is considered an act of negligence if a drug company does not make Americans aware of harmful side effects. Consumers who are then harmed can file a claim against the manufacturer for compensation to cover related medical costs, future treatment, lost wages, and physical and emotional pain and suffering. If you or a loved one has suffered harm or if you have lost a family member due to a prescription drug, you deserve compensation. Contact us today to discuss your best options.

Medical Device Litigation

Even since that time there are continuing recalls and devices that have later become known to fail and cause injury to thousands of Americans.  We wish we could trust all the medical devices If you or a loved one has suffered harm or if you have lost a family member due to a defective medical device, you deserve compensation.

Toxic tort refers to injuries that are caused by exposure to a chemical or poisonous substance, like asbestos, lead paint, or crude oil spill. Often at times, the victim does not know they are being subjected to the toxin, and this is unfortunately common with young children.
