Serious Medical-Malpractice Litigation throughout the
Helping victims of medical malpractice recover compensation
A special relationship exists between physicians and their patients. Physicians have a duty to their patients to provide a certain standard of care — using at least the level of skill, care and diligence that is generally exercised by fellow practitioners in the medical professions. It is considered medical malpractice when a medical professional breaches that duty through negligence or carelessness and causes injury to a patient. Medical-malpractice victims may recover compensation for their injuries, including for past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and lost income.
