Medical malpractice claims arise when medical professional care (doctor, nurse, hospital staff, dentist, etc.) falls below a reasonable standard in either providing medical treatment or treating or diagnosing a medical condition.
These claims are usually difficult to litigate because they are vigorously defended. In addition, establishing liability of the medical professional(s) involved can often prove difficult because both negligence and a causal relationship to the injuries suffered need to be established. Cohen Highley has access to numerous medical professionals to provide us with the opinions that are required to determine whether you have a case worth pursuing. Generally speaking, these cases cannot be won without such an opinion as the issues are often complex and are not within the knowledge of non-medical individuals.
There is no charge for an initial consultation. We only represent potential Plaintiffs and not the medical professionals with respect to these types of claims.
Medical malpractice is a very specialized area of personal injury law. Our experience allows the team to organize the appropriate experts, gather the facts and determine liability quickly and efficiently. We also have the staff, experts and trial experience to see the matter through to effective completion.
