  • Abandonment of patient

We Will Thoroughly Evaluate Every Case

We evaluate each potential case thoroughly. Our first step is to conduct an initial interview with you. Next, we gather and sort the medical records. We then send the medical records to a nurse-attorney, who prepares a review and summary of the medical records. We then identify the right surgical specialists and experts who review the medical records and the nurse-attorney’s report. Based on all the input, we will decide whether there is a surgical error case.

If we decide that the case is not winnable or that there are other problems, we tell you honestly. Moreover, you owe us nothing for the preliminary work performed by our staff and outside experts if we do not move forward with your claim.
