Medical Negligence Can Destroy a Family
Individuals trust medical professionals and health care facilities to act responsibly. Most of the time that trust is well placed. Sometimes, however, doctors, nurses, pharmacists, therapists, hospitals and medical centers make mistakes that cause patients severe harm or even wrongful death.

Did a doctor misread your X-Rays, MRI, CT scans, or CAT scans? Did you develop an infection after a botched knee surgery, or shoulder surgery? Did sepsis set in because you were lost in the system and no one monitored your infection? Were you given the wrong drugs or not enough pain medication? Did your doctor commit a procedural error or deviate from accepted standards of care? We can help.
