Specialized Area of Law
Medical malpractice is a specialized area of law that demands your attorney have a significant understanding of the medical world, the human body and medical terminology. Your lawyer also must be able to effectively translate complex medical terms into language that every-day people can understand. Finally, he must be able to fully and accurately describe his or her client's situation and the extent of the client's injuries as they affect the rest of the person's life.
This is what our law firm does, day in and day out, so that those who caused the trauma or the tragedy in the lives of our clients can be held accountable and so that our clients can pay for their medical needs. Please note, we only take on substantial injury cases that result in permanent injury. The statutes of limitations for these kinds of lawsuits are one year from the date of the incident for adults and eight years for a newborn.
