Medical Malpractice

When we put our health and medical care into the hands of a physician, surgeon or other health care professional, we trust that they are paying close attention to our health care needs and providing us with an appropriate standard of care.

Unfortunately, this does not always happen. Health care providers can be negligent, and medical malpractice can result in catastrophic injury and wrongful death.
