  • Surgical Errors: From performing the wrong procedure to leaving instruments inside a patient, the mistakes made before, during, and after surgery can cause serious injury and wrongful death.
  • Spinal Cord Injury/Paralysis: These life-altering injuries can be caused by medical malpractice as well as direct trauma. Our law firm ably represents clients injured in either manner.
  • Medication Errors: Powerful medications cause serious harm when the wrong prescription or the wrong dose is administered.

  • Failure to Diagnose/ Misdiagnosis: When doctors treat the wrong condition or none at all, patients lose the opportunity to benefit from potentially lifesaving treatments. Failure to diagnose breast cancer can be especially harmful to patients and their families.

  • Hospital and Emergency Room Mistakes: Doctors, nurses, or other medical staff may make errors or act negligently when treating patients at hospitals or emergency roms, and serious and potentially fatal injuries can occur as a result.
