Medical Malpractice

Patients have an expectation that doctors, nurses, therapists, and dentists will perform a medical procedure properly. When a patient suffers an injury during a procedure due to a mistake of the medical staff, this may be a case of medical malpractice. Medical malpractice lawyers can determine whether the health care provider is responsible for your injuries, and will know how much insurance is available to settle your damages.

Personal Injury

If you have suffered physical or emotional injury because of someone else's fault, a personal injury lawyer can help you through the insurance claim process, help you gather evidence, and calculate your claim for damages. Many personal injury attorneys will take a case on a contingency basis, which means they only receive payment if you recover damages. If you are accused of causing an injury, a personal injury attorney can defend you and work to prove your innocence.
