With lawyers having career backgrounds in engineering, nursing, and medical claims administration, the firm boasts a highly successful track record of results in all phases of medical care and device litigation. Medical malpractice arises when a physician, care provider, or hospital employee fails to properly diagnose, treat, or care for their patients. Over the past decade, the firm's attorneys have amassed a significant record of substantial verdicts in medical malpractice cases, and command the financial and manpower resources necessary to bring the facts to light and hold those who have inexcusably hurt others, responsible.
The firm is equipped to professionally litigate all types of medical malpractice claims including cases involving negligent treatment, birth trauma such as cerebral palsy, hypoxia, brachial plexus injury, failure to diagnose, and failure to treat within the standard of medical care. Recent cases have dealt with subjects including brain injuries, negligent referral or diagnosis, failure to properly treat, and patient neglect.
Each of the firm's medical malpractice attorneys are courthouse veterans, having collectively tried to verdict in excess of two hundred cases.
David Marchand, the lead attorney in the medical malpractice section of the firm, is the co-author of the medical devices section of the American Trial Lawyers Flagship publication "Litigating Tort Cases." Prior to becoming a lawyer, David was an engineer, where he employed his investigative and forensic skills to develop classified solutions for military contractors. David brings this same level of dedication and tenacity to each client's medical malpractice case.
