Proven Effective Representation for Victims of Medical Malpractice

Digital process : PixSolution

There are times in life when we are forced to give control of important matters to other people. Giving control over to a medical provider is never an easy task but we are forced to do so blindly and hope for a good outcome. In most cases medical care is rendered in an effective manner and the results are good. However in too many cases a medical provider or hospital needlessly and carelessly injures a patient and the resulting medical malpractice injury is devastating. From childbirth injuries to failure to diagnose to medical malpractice it is difficult to cope with the life long consequences of needless birth and medical injuries.

At Wais, Vogeltstein, Forman and Offutt, our record breaking trial attorneys have spent a collective 100 years protecting and improving the lives of families directly impacted by medical mistakes and negligence. Our experienced trial lawyers have achieved remarkable and record-breaking results on behalf of our injured clients because when a family entrusts our firm with its future we work tirelessly emotionally, financially and intellectually to achieve the absolute best outcome that we can for our client families. The confidence that is entrusted to us in every case is respected and returned exponentially.

Assert Your Rights through a Medical Malpractice Claim

Medical malpractice is by its nature a very complex area of the law. To bring a medical malpractice case in court requires a very specialized knowledge of the law and the medicine and it requires a tremendous financial investment. When selecting a medical malpractice law firm to help your family recover appropriate compensation on behalf of a loved one, it is important to bear this in mind. That is why at Wais, Vogelstein, Forman and Offutt, we have taken great efforts to select the finest trial lawyers with proven track records in court to represent our clients in court. Our record of verdicts and settlements in Maryland, Washington DC, Minnesota, and throughout a variety of other states (on a case by cases basis) is reflective of our ability and ongoing commitment to our clients.

If you think that a loved may have been injured as a result of a medical error or mistake it is important that you contact us as soon as possible so we can review the matter with you at no cost to you. It is certainly not always clear if medical negligence was the cause of a childbirth injury or medical injury. If you speak to your medical provider about a child injury, loss of a patient, or similar devastating result the provider will almost always deny that they did anything wrong. Corporate America and their malpractice insurance companies have trained them. Therefore it is important for you to seek the advice and opinion of a qualified third party to get at the truth of what happened. Sometimes cases of childbirth or medical malpractice are not presented to an attorney until it is too late to do anything because the medical provider said the outcome was a natural result. It would be unwise considering the staggering financial ramifications to the family, to accept their opinion without speaking to a qualified malpractice law firm who is willing to provide an in-depth evaluation of your case and your medical records at no cost to you.

Consult a Birth Injury or Medical Malpractice Attorney

Our seasoned attorneys seek only the truth for you and your loved one in order to obtain closure on these difficult matters. If the medical care that was provided was done so within the reasonable standard of care we will tell you that. Conversely if the medical care was not appropriately provided we will give you an honest opinion on that as well. If we believe you have a malpractice case we will front all expenses and costs for you such that the case will not cost you anything to pursue, as we only get paid a fee upon successful resolution of the case for you.
