Medical Malpractice

We Always Prepare to Go to Trial

Medical malpractice occurs when a physician, dentist, nurse, pharmacist or medical professional deviates from the standard of his or her profession and causes injury to a patient.  A person who alleges medical malpractice must prove four elements:

  1. A duty of care was owed by the medical professional;
  2. The medical professional violated the applicable standard of care;
  3. The medical professional was the cause of the injury;
  4. The patient suffered damages as a result of the medical professional’s negligence.

By using a combination of experts, interrogatories, and depositions, we prepare your case to establish to a jury that by a preponderance of the evidence, the medical professional was negligent.

Some examples of medical malpractice include:

  • Failure to diagnose a disease
  • Failure to obtain informed consent regarding a surgery
  • Overlooking essential medical history such as drug allergies
  • Medication errors
  • Failure to provide follow-up instructions to a patient
  • Triage errors
