BIRTH INJURY & MEDICAL MALPRACTICE LAWYERS
Largest Birth Injury Medical Malpractice Verdict in the United States on behalf of Client.
Obtaining very large verdicts on behalf of our injured clients is not about the money we recover for our clients. It’s not about achieving the largest malpractice verdict in US history which we obtained in July 2019 or obtaining record verdicts in three different states. It’s about obtaining the truth of what happened in your case and achieving full and fair compensation that lasts a lifetime for seriously injured victims of medical negligence. We understand that in addition to recovering full compensation for your injuries and losses, you need the truth in order to have closure. We will get the truth! We will stop the insurance company games and uncover the truth for you and your family.
If your child or family member suffered a serious medical injury while in the hospital, chances are you have spoken with your doctor or hospital about what happened. Almost assuredly, the medical providers told you there was nothing further they could have done, that it was just a bad result. While it is true, sometimes bad results do happen, often times a bad result can be tied to a breach from a recognized “standard of care.” The standard of care in any given situation is important because when a medical provider deviates from the accepted standard of care, or what is expected of them in a given situation, then serious, life-long injuries can result. Trying to get at the truth of what really happened, what resulted in a Birth Injury can be daunting task. Needless to say, your doctor or hospital are not going to be forthcoming and admit a mistake which resulted in a serious injury. This is where our law firm excels. We get at the truth by closely comparing all the medical records, diagnostic tests, witness accounts and what they claim happened against the backdrop of our decades of medical malpractice experience. Our success and multiple record verdicts are a direct reflection of our tireless work ethic and desire to question everything until we uncover the truth for you.
