When an illness or injury results in a trip to the doctor’s office or hospital, it is natural to feel assured that the doctor’s years of experience and training will result in excellent treatment. But physicians, nurses and other staff are all human, and mistakes are always possible. If a negligent act or omission by a medical professional has resulted in damage or harm, you may have a viable medical malpractice claim. Studies show that 100,000 patients per year die in hospitals as a result of medical errors.

Our attorneys and staff provide one-on-one service and aggressive representation to the victims of medical malpractice. This includes pursuing claims resulting from:

In addition to pursuing claims against medical professionals, we also have experience seeking claims against hospitals for improper care such as problems with medications, sanitation or nursing care. We can also handle claims against local, state and federal agencies that operate hospital facilities.
Again, tort reform laws have horribly complicated and minimized compensation for these claims. We have great insight on our state’s medical malpractice laws since Lance was the legislative chairman of the Mississippi Trial Lawyers Association during the special legislative session when these laws were passed in 2002 and 2004.
One survey showed that medical care providers win over 85% of trials in Mississippi. You cannot afford to hire an inexperienced malpractice lawyer or one without the resources to fund the experts needed to win.
