At Sullivan Papain Block McGrath & Cannavo P.C., we are committed to helping people who have been injured due to the negligence of medical professionals.
When To Hire A Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional, through a negligent act or omission, causes death or injury to a patient. Medical professionals have a responsibility to provide quality care to each patient they serve. When hospitals, doctors, nurses and staff fail to perform their duties with the highest level of competence and care, their patients may suffer serious or fatal injuries. Medical malpractice can be based on errors or omissions related to diagnosis, treatment, follow up care or health management.
How We Help
Every medical malpractice case we handle is staffed by highly skilled and experienced lawyers who are dedicated to helping you recover the maximum amount for your injury. Our resources, skill and commitment, coupled with some of the most respected and talented trial lawyers in this area of the law, have enabled our firm to achieve multiple multimillion-dollar successes, despite often facing some of the most well-financed law firms the insurance industry can fund.
Researching and proving malpractice can be costly and highly complex. Nevertheless, our firm makes the financial commitment to fully investigate and prosecute medical malpractice claims. We have worked with a wide array of experts best suited to uncover frequently overlooked evidence of negligence.
