Have you ever heard the old saying, "A jack of all trades, and a master of none?" Hiring an attorney is an important decision, so make sure that the attorney you select has experience in your specific type of issue or case.
Our litigation practice is focused on the following types of cases. If you need a lawyer, contact us for a complimentary evaluation of your case.
Medical Malpractice and Brain Injury
According to a 2000 study by the National Institute of Medicine, as many as 98,000 Americans die and another million people are injured each year by preventable medical errors.
When you go to a hospital or doctor for treatment, you are placing your life in their hands and trust them to know what they are doing. The law requires hospitals, doctors, and nurses to be competent and responsible for following national standards of care—and when they do not follow those rules, and a patient is injured or killed because of it, there has been medical malpractice.
A medical malpractice claim can be brought by an injured patient, or the surviving family members of a person who was killed as a result of medical malpractice, against any healthcare provider, including hospitals, doctors, nurses, psychologists and psychotherapists.
We have represented clients in litigation involving a broad swath of medical negligence, including babies who suffer permanent brain damage from birth-related negligence, brain injuries, surgical malpractice, improper dialysis care, anesthesia-related malpractice and many others.
Personal Injury and Wrongful Death
When someone has been injured by another party’s negligence or wrongful act, then you may have a personal injury claim. When another party’s negligence takes someone’s life, then there may be a wrongful death claim. Individuals or businesses may be the cause of a personal injury or wrongful death, and the law allows them to be held accountable in court.
Personal injury and wrongful death claims may arise from medical malpractice, work injuries, explosions, serious car wrecks and dangerous or defective projects, just to name a few. We have represented personal injury and wrongful death clients in numerous types of cases, including pipeline explosions, defective products, pharmaceutical/drug defects, bad surgical devices and many others.
Business lawsuits come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Sometimes a consumer is forced to sue a business, and other suits involve disputes between two businesses. We have represented business clients in a variety of business lawsuits, including builder-home buyer disputes, commercial lease disputes, breach of contract matters, breach of corporate sales agreement actions, fraudulent inducement cases, declaratory judgment actions, deceptive trade practice suits, and even suing a water board to enforce the terms of a park bond issue to fund acquisition of real estate.
