Medical Negligence and Errors

We have represented victims and surviving family members in cases arising from:

  • Birth injuries, including brain injury and shoulder dystocia
  • Failure to diagnose, delayed diagnosis, or failure to provide timely treatment of a life-threatening condition
  • Serious medication errors
  • Surgical errors resulting in paralysis, other permanent disability, or wrongful death
  • Nursing errors or caregiver neglect and abuse

Continuing the Essential Fight for Accountability in Health Care

Our work on behalf of negligence victims and their families has yielded solid insight into the health care system, delivery of care, standards of care, and why errors occur. As Mr. Phifer puts it, "Most physicians and nurses are highly skilled, hardworking people who do their best. However, our system has become too focused on profit at the expense of patient care. Corners are then cut, resulting in fatal mistakes."
We assess potential medical malpractice cases diligently, considering factors such as:

  • Useful evidence, discrepancies and inconsistencies in medical records
  • Qualifications, licensing and personal histories of doctors, nurses, and others responsible for adhering to standards of care
  • Consultation with highly qualified experts in the field of medicine and nursing
