Medical Malpractice

Statistics show that approximately 195,000 people die every year because of medical malpractice. More than one million incidents of patient injury occur every year. Were you or a loved one injured because of medical malpractice or a healthcare provider’s error? Did you or a family member have a bad result of a surgery or procedure? Did anyone explain to you what happened and why? Did the answers you receive seem odd or did not really answer your question? You are entitled to know what happened. If an injury or death was caused by medical malpractice, you, your family deserves compensation.

We trust our doctors, nurses, healthcare professionals, nursing homes and clinics to take care of us and we pay for those services. You have a right to expect proper care and treatment. Even if you signed a consent for surgery does not excuse a healthcare provider’s negligence and does not prevent you from pursuing a meritorious claim. Medical malpractice suits can be filed against an individual healthcare provider, such as a doctor, surgeon, nurse, physical therapist, chiropractor, or anyone else providing medical services. Claims can also be filed against Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs) such as Kaiser, or institutions like nursing homes. If you feel you or a family member suffered an injury because of the actions of a doctor, nurse, other healthcare professional, nursing home or clinic, please call me and arrange for a free consultation.
