Medical malpractice is often defined by the degree of care and skill a surgeon, doctor, physician, nurse, or other medical professional should use in normal circumstances. When they fail to provide a standard level of care, it can be considered medical malpractice.
Malpractice can occur in the initial diagnosis of a patient, when a doctor overlooks a symptom or does not identify a critical condition or major illness. In many cases the surgeon or medical professional makes mistakes reading the medical images, MRIs, CT scans, prescribes an incorrect medicine, ignores conditions, or discharges a patient without providing any treatment. Doctor errors often occur before or during medical treatments or surgical procedures. Surgical errors, birth injuries, misdiagnosis and anesthesia errors are among the many types of malpractice cases our firm prosecutes. We believe patients have rights, including the right to receive proper treatment for medical conditions. Harms and losses in settlements may include:

Contrary to common belief, not every attorney has courtroom experience. Most attorneys in fact rarely step into a courtroom and few have ever tried a medical malpractice case before a jury. Our medical malpractice attorneys in Grand Rapids have been successful in court and are discerning in the cases they accept. Our experience provides more clout in negotiations, and more credibility with judges, opposing lawyers, insurance companies, and juries.
Appearing in court and actually trying medical malpractice cases in Michigan has also taught us a lot about jurors. We have learned jurors can be quickly bored by legal arguments and hopelessly confused about injuries, medicine, medical malpractice and medical issues. As a result, we have learned to captivate and hold the attention and concern of juries we must integrate the latest communication technology.
We explain the medical issues in medical malpractice cases in plain language and the resulting losses and disabling injuries. And, we speak to jurors as caring and intelligent human beings who make the decisions that will forever affect our clients’ lives. Our medical malpractice attorneys have learned not only to build powerful cases and exceedingly well prepared but to also present the cases in the clear, compelling manner they deserve. Because ultimately what matters isn’t what an attorney, doctor, or expert says. It’s what jurors comprehend – and believe.
