Whether involving a doctor or surgeon, a hospital, nursing home or clinic, the fact is that medical mistakes kill and injure thousands of people each year. Medical malpractice or medical negligence happens when a medical provider, whether an anesthesiologist, doctor, nurse, or other health care professional working in a clinic, hospital or HMO, acts in a manner that falls below the accepted standard of care in the medical community. Our firm has handled Medical Malpractice cases for over 17 years and understands the complex legal issues involving medical negligence and medical malpractice, including inadequate care, mistakes and errors in medical treatment, misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, and other mistakes made by anesthesiologists, doctors, surgeons and nurses in hospitals and clinics. Our mission is to help injured people get fair compensation for their injuries, under circumstances in which medical care provided to them falls below the level of skill and care required.
