Medical malpractice is a subset of personal injury wherein a claimant brings formal legal action against a healthcare provider. Healthcare providers include doctors, nurses, hospital staff, and many times, even the hospital itself (under a theory of vicarious liability). Medical malpractice is a complex area of law where the plaintiff (victim) must often rely on expert testimony (generally from other health care providers) demonstrating that his or her particular healthcare providerís actions fell below the standard of care, thereby causing the plaintiff injury.

Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice cases are generally handled on a contingency fee.  If the attorney obtains monetary recovery for the client (through settlement or trial), the attorney usually retains one-third of all monies collected, after subtracting the costs incurred in pursuing the case. If you feel that you or a loved one has been wrongfully injured, please contact this office to arrange for a free consultation. Bear in mind, there is a strict statute of limitations (the time allowed under the law to commence legal action) in these cases, so it is imperative to discuss your case with an attorney sooner than later.
