Professional Negligence Attorney

Medical Malpractice

We can help you recover your damages from negligent doctors, lawyers, and other professionals.

Medical malpractice is estimated to kill around 90,000 people per year in the US. Medical negligence is essentially a medical mistake case, when a patient injury is from a provider’s failure to follow the profession’s standard of care for the community. Because of the difficulty of medical malpractice cases and the need to investigate the negligence and medicine early, hiring a medical malpractice attorney should be done as soon as you think you may have a malpractice claim. Nursing home abuse is another area with similar difficulties, and again consulting or hiring a medical malpractice lawyer should be done shortly after you think you may have a nursing home abuse claim.

Legal malpractice


Legal malpractice is another area with similar difficulties because of the professional standard of care issues. A legal negligence case has an interesting damages issue, which is proof of the position the client would have been in without the lawyer negligence. The shorthand saying is that the client needs to win the malpractice case against the negligent lawyer, but also needs to win the “case within a case” which the lawyer represented the client for when the malpractice occurred. Consulting a legal malpractice attorney early is a good idea, as the case will likely involve some investigation, and some lawyers will not take legal malpractice claims.
