Medical Malpractice

What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice is negligent conduct by a healthcare provider that causes injury or death to the patient. Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional fails to exercise his or her professional skills in an assignment he or she has accepted, according to the professional care standards set by other professionals in his or her specialty in the community where the care was given.

Who Can Commit Medical Malpractice?

Any health care provider may commit medical malpractice. This includes doctors, nurses, paramedics, pharmacists, and technicians that provide patient care. Medical malpractice or negligence can occur in any setting where health care providers come into contact with patients, such as doctor's offices, clinics, nursing homes, hospitals, mental health clinics, ambulatory surgery centers, and diagnostic clinics.

You and your staff have been wonderful in representing my family over the years and we truly appreciate everything you have done for us. I certainly would be glad to refer you to my friends and family, should they require legal representation. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. B.D.
The settlement you were able to secure for me has been a godsend. I have been in treatment for breast cancer and one of our daughters lost her job. This money has kept us from losing our house. B.H.
Originally I did not want to pursue a claim against the Department of Energy for my husband’s death. I knew my husband had wanted me to but I was grieving. Your office obtained compensation for me, and I am proud to know my husband and I will be able to leave something to our precious granddaughters. S.C.
Mike, I want to thank you for all your hard work representing me over the past five months. Without your efforts I am positive that my situation would be bleak. You went above and beyond and I owe my future to you and I will always be thankful. N.M.
You and your office have helped me through a difficult time. I made mistakes but thanks to you, I have a second chance. L.K.
