  • What Is Medical Malpractice?

    Doctors, healthcare workers, and all other medical professionals must provide treatment that meets or exceeds the standard set by the medical community. This allows all patients to receive the same level of comprehensive care, no matter their geographic location. When the care provided by a medical professional doesn’t meet this standard, it could result in medical malpractice.

    For example, if a woman is undergoing heart surgery and the surgeon fails to notice obvious symptoms of lung cancer, the doctor could be held liable due to the delayed diagnosis of her cancer symptoms.

  • What Can An Attorneys Do To Help?

    Investigate your case: Our D.C. area attorneys can review your medical records, gather relevant evidence, and analyze similar cases to ensure your case is as strong as possible.

    Consult medical experts: Testimony from experts in the field is often critical in deciding medical malpractice cases. Our team works closely with some of the most highly respected experts in the D.C. area and can gather their testimony on your behalf.

    Negotiate with the insurance company: The insurance provider of the at-fault party may offer you a settlement to prevent the case from going to trial. Our lawyers can analyze this initial offer and determine whether it reflects the full restitution amount that you deserve. If not, we can negotiate until you are being adequately compensated for your injuries.

    Take your case to trial: If no agreement can be reached, our team is ready and eager to take your case into the courtroom. We understand the price for your pain is infinite, which is why we’ll never settle for less than you deserve.
