Medical Malpractice

The facts of every case are different.  That means that a past record of success in another case is not a guarantee of a similar result in your case or in any future case.  It also means that the amount of a verdict or settlement is dependent on factors which are specific to each case.  We have listed below a limited number of recent settlements and court verdicts simply to represent the types of success we have had in the past in medical malpractice cases.  Call us today to find out whether you have a case.
