Your Team For Medically Negligent Errors
Not every negative outcome is the result of medical negligence. However, many serious injuries are preventable if only the provider had followed the standard of care. We have extensive success and experience with:
- Birth injuries (see below)
- Anesthesia and drug errors
- Doctors’ mistakes and surgical errors
- Emergency room errors
- Delayed diagnosis
- Misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose
- Failure to provide adequate aftercare
- Other issues
Do you have a medical malpractice case? We offer a free consultation so that we can hear your story and offer an honest assessment of what you can expect upfront. We will tell you if you have a case and the steps to take. We also offer legal counsel to families who have lost a loved one in an accident or during a medical procedure.

Support And Guidance In Birth Injuries
Having a child is one of the most wonderful experiences parents can have. Unfortunately, complications can arise. When a complication causes harm and was preventable, this can compound the emotional brunt of the event.
We help parents with a wide array of birth injuries, including:
- Cerebral palsy (brain damage caused by fetal distress and untreated jaundice)
- Erb’s palsy (nerve damage to the shoulders caused by pulling the infant)
- Brachial palsy, leading to the infant being unable to move their arm
- Facial paralysis
- Spinal cord injuries
- Vacuum-caused injuries after incorrect use of a vacuum extraction tool
Over the decades, we have helped hundreds of parents recognize what happened and hold negligent parties responsible. While we understand that nothing can undo the trauma and harm, attaining financial compensation can relieve a family of financial burdens.
