Medical negligence is a leading cause of death in the United States. Billions of dollars are paid every year to victims of medical negligence, medical errors, and medication errors.
Proving medical negligence can be challenging. Not all mistakes and errors are considered medical negligence, and not all bad outcomes are the result of negligence. Complicating the issue is the role played by insurance companies that want to make pursuing a claim as difficult as possible. These insurance companies also have deep pockets, and engaging with them in a medical malpractice suit can be time-consuming, expensive and stressful.
For these reasons, it is critical to work with an experienced and highly-competent medical malpractice lawyer. At Cunningham Bounds, we have successfully represented clients in numerous medical malpractice claims. We bring experience, extensive knowledge and connections to medical experts who can reliably understand your situation and testify on your behalf. Call us to discuss your case.
