The father of modern medicine wrote of doctors' obligation to "do no harm," yet medical negligence and doctor malpractice can lead to serious injuries and even death. If a health care provider's malpractice has harmed you or a loved one, you should hire an experienced medical malpractice attorney to ensure that your rights are protected.

Can I Bring A Medical Malpractice Claim?
An important step in pursuing damages in a medical malpractice case is determining what injuries you have suffered and their cause.
In order to understand the extent of your injuries and what occurred during your medical care, we read medical records with the help of an on-staff medical professional, then have the records further reviewed by board-certified medical experts.
Doctors' records and hospital charts are key to figuring out what happened and if the case is winnable. Unfortunately, those records are written by the very people whom we are suing. Often, what is written between the lines, or not written at all, is as important as what the records themselves say. Our 60-year history means we:
- Have the experience to understand medical records
- Know what to look for in searching the records for the truth
- Have access to high-level medical experts who are willing to provide an honest assessment of records both during the analysis of a case and during trial
