Birth injuries — We seek compensation for parents whose infants suffer fetal distress, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, hypoxia, and other birth injuries.

Surgical errors — Our firm works to hold surgeons accountable for anesthesia errors, nerve damage and wrong-site surgery mistakes, among other forms of surgical malpractice.

Medication mistakes — If you were given the wrong drug, prescribed the wrong dosage or harmed by other pharmaceutical errors, we will seek the full compensation you deserve.

Failure to diagnose — When doctors fail to diagnose serious conditions such as cancer or heart disease, that failure can be life-threatening.
