If a doctor failed to properly treat your illness, we can help
Modern medicine offers hope for victims of serious injury and illness. With the proper treatment, many patients can regain health and resume the lifestyle and activities they enjoyed before they were hurt or became ill.
Unfortunately, a doctor’s failure to properly treat your condition can deny you this opportunity, or make your recovery much more difficult, painful, and expensive than it otherwise should have been. In the most extreme cases, failure to treat can result in lifelong disability or death.
Medical professionals are required to follow the standards of care accepted by the members of their profession and specialty. Failure to treat a condition is one type of medical malpractice, and patients who have suffered as a result have the right to recover for damages.

No other firm in Maine can match our resources and expertise
Although patients have the right to recover for damages caused by medical malpractice, these are among the hardest and most expensive cases to prove.
No other medical malpractice firm in Maine can match the depth of our expertise and the resources we use to bring these complex cases to a successful conclusion. We pride ourselves in taking on―and winning―the cases that other lawyers have turned down because they know how challenging, costly, and time-consuming the case will be or they don’t have the experience, expertise and resources to identify the malpractice. This is why the initial consultation is so important.
CONTACT US for a second opinion and an objective, expert review of the facts, even if another law firm has told you that you don’t have a valid claim.
Maine also has strict statutes of limitations for the filing a medical malpractice complaint. This is another reason why it is critical to consult with us as soon as possible if you think you might be a victim of medical malpractice.
