Sometimes medical malpractice cannot be easily classified within an established category. However, that does not mean that the consequences to the patient are any less severe or important.
Our medical malpractice lawyers often speak with people who believe that a healthcare provider made a mistake, or simply didn’t do a good enough job. In some cases, after a review of the facts, we are able to tell the person with confidence that no malpractice occurred. In other cases, if we conclude that malpractice did in fact occur, we then pursue justice on behalf of the injured person.
The only way to know for sure, and to have peace of mind, is a thorough review of the facts by lawyers with expert knowledge of the law, as well as the medical standards and procedures involved in the case. Our team is built for that task.
