Medical Malpractice/Birth Defects

Medical Malpractice. Medical errors kill between 50,000 to 100,000 people each year. We believe that everyone is entitled to competent, high-quality care and that negligent health care providers should be held accountable for injuries they cause.

We represent people and their families who have suffered from the malpractice of doctors, nurses, hospitals and other health care providers. Medical malpractice may occur as a result of:
  • Delay or failure to diagnose an ailment or condition;
  • Improper treatment or therapy;
  • Administration of the wrong drug or dosage;
  • Failure to adequately inform or misinforming a patient of the risks and complications of a drug, medical device or surgical procedure;
  • Carelessly performing a surgical procedure; or
  • Failure to refer a patient to a specialist.
Often times, medical malpractice claims involve complex and time-sensitive medical issues. Accordingly, the earlier necessary records are collected and analyzed, the better your case will be.

Birth Defects. The sudden death or injury to a newborn due to medical carelessness and/or negligence is perhaps the most shocking and emotional event any parent can imagine. Seeing a newborn suffer a birth defect or other injury can be just as traumatic. The emotional and financial turmoil that inevitably follows these events makes retaining an attorney seem trivial by comparison.

Unfortunately, the time immediately following a tragic event can be the most crucial. Evidence isoften lost or destroyed, witnesses disappear and memories become fuzzy. Therefore, it is important to consult with attorneys who understand both the complex legal and emotional issues facing loved ones after a tragedy as soon as possible.

We represent parents who have lost babies in botched medical procedures caused by carelessness or negligence. We welcome these people into our homes and our hearts and they become members of our family. We never lose sight of the fact that, while fair compensation can do justice, no amount of money can replace the loss of a newborn or return their physical health.
