  • <Misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose a medical condition and delayed diagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose cancer
  • An infection
  • Injuries to the brain
  • Errors in emergency rooms

We bring to your case the skills of experienced trial lawyers who have won millions of dollars in just compensation for clients and received significant peer recognition for professional accomplishment.

Surgical Errors Can Lead To New Medical Issues

You had surgery to fix a problem. If something went wrong during the surgery, you may have additional medical issues to battle.
