Doctors are human. So are nurses, anaesthesiologists, other health practitioners and hospital administrators. Mistakes can be made by these people and institutions. All of us can be careless at times. These parties are highly-paid, highly-respected people, and along with these privileges come high expectations.
If you have suffered injury due to medical malpractice, hospital negligence, emergency room error, or other lapse in reasonable standards, speak to me about your case. Things like these can happen, I am not saying they happen often, but as mentioned above we are humans and we make mistakes. Unfortunately, when it comes to a mistake in a hospital where human lives are involved and at risks, we have to do everything to save that mistake. Not one doctor or nurse wants to harm a patient, these are some mistakes that happen to everyone, however in hospitals these can lead to various outcomes.
Medical Malpractice and Negligence in Anchorage
I am an experienced Anchorage medical malpractice attorney. I have spent more than 30 years as a lawyer in Alaska learning how to help you. I look for ways to help others with their problems. Besides my legal practice, I have served in various ministries and missions.
Common cases of medical malpractice include:
- Failure to diagnose a serious illness
- Avoidable birth injury
- Surgical errors
- Medication errors
Your lost work time, pain and suffering and additional medical bills should all be compensated.
Pursuing a medical malpractice lawsuit is challenging in Alaska. This is due to legislated limits on non-economic damages. In addition, the vast resources of medical institutions and the general goodwill doctors and nurses enjoy makes these cases very difficult.
I can stand up to a challenge. I have an AV® peer review rating*, and I am a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), a designation based on points for actual trial experience.
