What is Medical Negligence?
When a patient is injured or dies as a result of improper medical treatment.
What happens at our initial meeting?
We have a detailed conversation about how the injury occurred and discuss the client’s concerns. I explain what is involved in pursuing a case and provide an initial evaluation. There is no charge for this meeting.
How is a Medical Malpractice case investigated?
Clients sign a HIPPA form so that I can get a complete copy of the relevant medical records. After a detailed review, I consult with medical experts in the area of concern. Findings are shared with the client.
How is a Medical Malpractice case pursued? What happens next?
If the case is meritorious, with my client’s consent, a lawsuit or claim is filed. A lifecare plan of the client’s future needs is prepared. An economist is engaged to assess lost income and project the cost of the client’s future needs. Witnesses are questioned and the court sets a trial date. The parties may agree to mediate.
What is mediation? 
An independent mediator meets with all parties to try to resolve the case. Each side has an opportunity to present their case to each other and the mediator. The parties are separated in to different conference rooms, and the mediator discusses the case with each side hoping to reach a settlement.
