According to the Institute of Medicine, approximately 98,000 patients die each year due to preventable medical errors. Countless others suffer life-changing injuries. When a patient is injured or dies due to preventable errors, families need support, answers and especially need the resources to try to recover.
During the past quarter century, our lawyers have investigated and litigated hundreds of cases in DC, Maryland and Virginia involving medical malpractice, and we have obtained many significant settlements and verdicts throughout the Washington metropolitan courts. Our firm has sufficient resources and expertise to fight against the powerful insurance companies and large corporations who refuse to accept responsibility for the harms they cause to real people.
Medical malpractice can include many different scenarios including:
- Birth trauma, cerebral palsy, brain injury or Erbs palsy;
- Failure to timely diagnose and treat cancer;
- Failure to properly treat patients in the emergency room;
- Surgical errors;
- Failure to refer to the right specialists;
- Medication errors;
- Nursing errors; and
- Wrongful death.
Our lawyers include a nurse-attorney, a former risk manager at a major hospital in DC, and lawyers who teach attorneys, medical students, and medical professionals how to prevent medical errors. We will get the answers you need and the remedy you deserve. Our experienced attorneys have access to nationally known board-certified medical experts who work with us as consultants through each step of the litigation. All of our medical experts are leaders in their fields and many are affiliated with major medical schools, including Stanford, Yale and Harvard.
