Types of Medical Malpractice Claims

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional through an act, or a failure to act, practices below professional standards, causing injury or harm to a patient. The negligence might arise from errors in diagnosis, treatment, aftercare, or health management.  The health care professional can be a hospital, a doctor, a nurse, an outpatient surgery center, a dentist, a nurse practitioner, a mid-wife, a psychiatrist, a nursing home, or any provider of medical care.

We offer free consultations, and if we decide your case is a good fit, it costs you nothing to proceed with it because we advance all of the costs.

We start our investigation by asking if you have the medical records. If you don’t have medical records, we can get them for you. Once we are able to review your medical records, we will call you to discuss them. If we think you have a case, we will ask you to sign a Contingency Fee Agreement. This agreement states if we do not get you a recovery for you, you owe us nothing.

Medical Expert Review

We will hire a medical expert to review your records and see if that medical expert will be willing to act as your expert witness.  The expert must determine that medical malpractice has happened.  This is because you as the victim bear the burden of proof that negligence has occurred.  Meaning you will need an expert witness who will prove to a jury that what happened to you was malpractice. 

When you ask Medical Experts why they are willing to act as expert witnesses, they most often tell you it is to help prevent that type of malpractice in the future and to create better healthcare for all of us.


Filing a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit

Filing a lawsuit can offer you a chance to help others avoid negligent providers of care or negligent facilities.  It helps hold these negligent providers accountable.  Filing a lawsuit can also offer you a chance to find peace of mind and to receive the compensation you deserve.

These are some of the damages a victim of medical malpractice is entitled to:

  • Medical expense
  • Lost earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Nonmedical expenses
  • Loss of Enjoyment of Life
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Loss of services of a spouse
  • Loss of Consortium or loss of love and affection

“I met Nancy Cronin about 3 years ago when I needed a lawyer for a malpractice claim. I had another attorney, but we parted ways. She took my case, although she had very little time to get it filed. Nancy filed it and started working. She worked extremely hard and kept me informed on everything she was doing. If she had an opinion, she always included me in what she was doing.

She did a wonderful job for me. She is honest, truthful, and caring. I would recommend her to anyone who needs an attorney. Thank you for all your hard work.”
