Medical malpractice is defined as the failure of a medical professional to provide the proper standard of care to a patient. This may occur in the initial diagnosis of a patient, during treatment of a patient in failing to recognize a serious illness, or inprescribing or ordering the wrong treatment. Malpractice may also occur before or during any type of medical treatment or in post-operative patient care. Medication errors, surgical injuries, birth injuries, misdiagnosis and anesthesia errors are some of the primary types of medical malpractice cases we handle.
Our firm also has the experience of representing doctors in medical malpractice cases. In addition to defending doctors in cases brought against them, we also represent physicians as personal counsel. When a doctor is insured and is assigned an attorney, we represent the doctor as personal counsel to oversee the case and ensure that the case is being handled properly and to offer assistance in settlement.
Our experience in representing both plaintiffs and doctors in malpractice cases affords our attorneys the unique knowledge of understanding both sides of the case. Additionally, we understand the importance of the consequences of malpractice cases to both the injured party and the medical provider. This allows for a comprehensive analysis of our cases, the most honest advice to our clients and effective litigation to achieve a successful outcome for our clients.
