When Professional Incompetence or Malpractice Has Harmed You
For lawyers and doctors especially, professionalism is of the utmost importance, because the general public needs to put their trust in attorneys and medical professionals. Most people can't diagnose and treat their own medical conditions, and most people can't handle their own legal matters.
When these professionals make serious errors or handle their professional conduct unethically, we can help you get the money you deserve to recover from the resulting damages. We have more than 55 combined years of experience as Charleston professional malpractice attorneys. From our West Virginia law firm, we focus on aggressive representation and client-oriented service.
Your Malpractice Attorneys
We represent clients for medical malpractice and legal malpractice claims.
Medical malpractice is one of the most challenging of all the different types of personal injury cases that we handle. They are personal cases that involve questioning a physician or health care provider's professional competence, charges that most doctors take personally. Also, the lawyer needs to know the complicated aspects of medicine almost as well as the law in order to succeed.
With the new West Virginia laws that cap non-economic damages in medical malpractice cases, it is essential to hire an attorney with experience.
We have the experience to represent clients in medical malpractice cases involving:
- Routine procedures
- Failure to diagnose
- Incorrect pathology report
- Incorrect X-ray reading
- Overmedication and undermedication
- Failure to provide appropriate treatment
- Failure to properly refer you to another doctor when your doctor lacks the adequate expertise to handle your medical procedures
We also handle legal malpractice for situations involving:
- Missing the statute of limitations
- Missing court deadlines
- Improper or inadequate preparation of a case
- Cases dismissed
- Failure to follow court rules
Contingency Fee: If You Don't Get Paid, We Don't Get Paid
We work on a contingency fee. While many law firms work on a contingency fee, they will hide charges from you at first: phone calls, printing costs, research costs and the like. We keep it simple: if you don't get paid, we don't get paid. Only if we win your case or get you a favorable settlement will we charge you anything.
