West Virginia Medical Malpractice Lawyer
When a person suffers injuries as a result of the negligence or carelessness of a doctor or other medical provider, the injured patient has rights under the law. Medical malpractice claims can be brought when a care provider deviates from the standard of care that should be exhibited by a competent provider under similar circumstances.
Our law firm takes these claims very seriously and we have the utmost respect for competent physicians and their practice. When we evaluate a potential medical negligence claim, we have the entire medical chart reviewed by a Board Certified specialist to obtain an opinion as to whether or not the physician was negligent.
When medical negligence does occur, the results are often severe and the injured party suffers greatly. These claims are very important to the injured party and we highly recommend that all suspected claims be evaluated. Statutes of limitations require that cases be brought within a certain amount of time after an injury, so promptly contacting a medical malpractice attorney is important even if you decide not to pursue a claim.
We have helped injured individuals throughout West Virginia and western Pennsylvania.
