Do You Have A Claim?
Our office will investigate the facts of your case and collect the necessary medical information to help you determine if the medical professional or facility was negligent.

- Surgical Errors: when a doctor causes unnecessary injuries during surgery, or operates on the wrong body part
- Prescription Drugs: when a doctor or nurse prescribe or administer the wrong medication, the wrong dosage, medications that a patient is allergic to, or medications that conflict with one another
- Misdiagnosis: when a doctor fails to correctly diagnose medical problems, delays diagnosis, or does not diagnose a problem at all

If negligence did occur, you or your loved ones deserve compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain, suffering, inconvenience, humiliation, and future medical care.
