Medical malpractice or medical negligence occurs when a doctor or other healthcare provider breaches their duty to a patient to perform treatment in accordance with the “standard of care.” In order to prevail in a medical malpractice case, a patient must prove that one or more healthcare providers breached the “standard.” The standard of care requires that a healthcare provider use the skill, knowledge and care ordinarily possessed and exercised by other members of the profession acting under similar conditions and circumstances.
In today’s environment, many medical malpractice claims must proceed to trial. It is important that your firm be willing and able to make the financial commitment necessary to see you through the conclusion of your case. Examples of common types of medical malpractice cases include: birth injuries, wrongful death, emergency room malpractice, pharmacist malpractice, misdiagnosed heart attacks, delayed diagnosis of cancer, hospital malpractice, nursing malpractice, psychologist/therapist malpractice, radiologist malpractice and dental malpractice.
Our firm has significant experience with the complexities of medical malpractice claims, and will employ a team of medical and nurse consultants to review medical records and evaluate claims in order to prove medical malpractice.
Personal Professional Care
Dale took the time to understand my issues both legally and health wise after an auto accident and he explained all the issues, “legalese” and readily answered any questions that I had. He also took a personal interest in my recovery from a neck / back injury from the accident. He gave me a book from his personal library that outlined back exercises that could provide long-term relief from my back pain issues. I felt like I had a true advocate standing up to the insurance companies for my best outcome.
Very professional, dedicated to my cause
Dale and his staff was very in tuned to my needs and worked on getting this accomplished. Calls were always returned to me in a timely matter. After meeting with Dale almost 5 years ago and interviewing 2 other attorneys I felt Dale was the one that I wanted to represent me. This guy is GREAT!!
