Have you or a loved one been injured by a doctor's negligence? Doctor's often render their services with the utmost care; unfortunately, they do not always provide their services to the established standard of duty and care. When a doctor fails to perform to the level of care that is customarily required, the doctor may be liable for medical malpractice thereby affording you compensation.
Each medical malpractice claim is unique and each has to be reviewed on an independent basis. It’s difficult to conclude whether a case has merit until one of our experienced attorneys review the facts of the claim. After a thorough assessment of your claim, our attorneys will meet with you to provide you with legal options and discuss the possible outcome of your case.
If the malpractice caused serious injuries, our attorneys will determine whether or not there's a cause of action. If the claim has merit the lawyer will contact an expert who will review the facts of your claim and establish whether the doctor’s actions fell below the standard of care. After the expert's report is received by the attorney, the attorney will contact the insurance company to alert them to the expert's findings. The insurance company can either settle at this point or reject the expert’s findings and decide to go to trial.
