  • Birth injury

    A legitimate birth injury claim requires establishing that the applicable standard of care was violated and that the negative outcome could have been prevented. Regardless of whether the birth injury results in a permanent physical and/or mental ailment, we handle your case in a compassionate manner.

  • Surgical error

    Surgical negligence or misconduct can cause severe injuries. Types of errors include surgical instruments left in the patient’s body, operation on the wrong site or the wrong patient, and use of the wrong procedure.

  • Failure to diagnose

    Healthcare providers are obligated to prevent common injuries and maladies by following standard procedures. If a provider fails to diagnose a preventable illness or injury, they are equally liable as if they incorrectly identified or treated it. Common errors and omissions in this area include failure to review test results, failure to evaluate a patient’s family medical history, or delay in treating a known condition.


If you or a family member has suffered harm, do not delay.  There are rigid statutes of limitations setting the timeframe in which your malpractice action or wrongful death suit can be filed.  Contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible to remain within these limits and enhance the ability to recover all pertinent records and documents necessary to pursue your claim.
