Medical Malpractice

Despite recent tort reform in the area of medical malpractice in West Virginia, such claims remain viable and significant in our state. There can be few cases more egregious than having a physician, hospital or medical provider we trust with our care treating us negligently and causing serious injuries and sometimes death. I have handled malpractice cases since I first began practicing law. Having worked for prestigious plaintiffs’ firms in Charleston, West Virginia, prior to opening my own firm, my focus was primarily on medical malpractice cases. It is a highly specialized field and requires skilled lawyers who not only are well–versed in the medical liability laws of this state but also who are familiar with various aspects of the medicine itself. Having been involved in medical malpractice cases pending in several West Virginia counties, I have the experience necessary to represent those injured by their medical providers. I have been able to obtain settlements well into the millions of dollars for our plaintiffs as against physicians and hospitals, including a brain injury claim against multi-defendants resulting in a recovery of nearly $3.5 million.
