When a physician fails to properly treat a medical condition and the negligent act or omission is the cause of a new or aggravated injury to the patient, this is termed medical malpractice.
Each year, Medical Malpractice negligence is responsible for 98,000 wrongful death cases. Medical mistakes cause more deaths than auto accidents. Over 1.3 million people are injured every year because of medication errors, doctor error and hospital staff negligence.

- Bronchoscope devices;
- Medication overdoses;

Any of these can cause undue pain, suffering and financial hardship. We understand these and we are there for you.Cerebral Palsy / Birth Injury & Malpractice
Cerebral palsy is caused most often by poor delivery techniques during childbirth that cause the baby bleeding, head trauma or lack of oxygen. Another cause for cerebral palsy can be an infection or meningitis during the first several days after birth. Premature babies also have a very high risk of developing cerebral palsy.Cancer Misdiagnosis
Cancer misdiagnosis cases are increasing. Unfortunately, that also means that wrongful deaths are increasing, as a result of these misdiagnoses. The earlier you begin treatment for cancer, the better your chance of survival, and the lower your medical bills.
The obvious reaction to a cancer diagnosis is to start treatments immediately. These treatments can include chemotherapy and radiation. Both of these are financially taxing and physically debilitating experiences to live through.
