Medical Malpractice – Building a Strong Claim

Medical errors have become the third leading cause of death in the United States.  When a health care provider acts, or fails to act, it is malpractice (medical negligence) if that treatment falls below the accepted standard of care for the community.  All too often this failure can cause injury or death to a patient.

If you or a family member were injured as a result of medical negligence, you deserve an adequate explanation and possibly compensation. You will require a lawyer to bring that claim to the insurance company or a jury. You will need Dr. Sawyer’s extensive experience as a surgeon to navigate the facts of the case, determine if the mistakes rise to the level of medical malpractice, and make those at fault be accountable. The Law Offices of Dr. Russell W. Sawyer have the resources to take your case to trial if that becomes necessary.

If you believe you were injured by a health care provider, we invite you to call us with the facts of your case. These reviews can be very expensive, but we pay all of those costs. We only claim reimbursement for attorney’s fees if we succeed in your case.  If we decline your case, or do not succeed, you will not be required to pay those costs.

Medical Malpractice May Include:

  • Surgical errors
  • Birth injury
  • Hypoxic-Induced Encephalopathy (HIE)
  • Misdiagnosis/failure to diagnose
  • Emergency room & hospital errors
  • Nursing home injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Wrongful death

Dr. Sawyer has the medical expertise to evaluate and try to provide some answers after a thorough review of your case. Because of our understanding of Law, Medicine and the Health Care System, we may be able to seek compensation on your behalf.  We have access to leading medical experts to assist in your recovery and treatment.
