Have you suffered from medical malpractice?  Has your loved one suffered or died because of a doctor’s or medical provider’s malpractice?

Do you have a viable medical malpractice case?

These are important questions and you deserve the right to know the answers.

If you believe you or your family has suffered from poor medical judgment or skills, causing serious injury, then the bottom line is that we can help you determine whether the case is worthy of pursuing.


Medical providers promise to help, not hurt.  This is embodied in the famous quote by Hippocrates:

“As to diseases, make a habit of two things—to help, or at least, to do no harm.”

But sometimes they don’t help and they do hurt. And, if they violate patient safety rules, it is medical malpractice. Medical malpractice is when a doctor, healthcare expert or medical facility causes injury or death through either a negligent act or omission.


And that is where we come in.
