Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have a claim for my legal matter?

What happens when a patient suffers an injury because of a doctor's, a nurse's, or a hospital's negligence? That means if you go in to get treatment and they send you home and they don't take care of you and they should have, then you have a claim. That means if you suffer a catastrophic injury because somebody failed to diagnose your problem, then you have a claim. That's what you contact somebody like me for, so I can find out if this is something that is a result of negligence or if it was just a bad outcome.

Does having the right lawyer really make a difference in getting a verdict?

One of the things I've learned as a trial lawyer is that most of the time the jury is the smartest group of people in the room. The collective wisdom of 12 people in the jury usually finds the truth and justice. So if you're willing to go to trial and put your fate in the hands of the jury, I can help with that.

Who do you represent?

Generally I represent victims of negligence. Whether that be medical negligence, vehicle negligence, premises liability negligence, people that suffered catastrophic injuries, and wrongful death. Little kids who have suffered birth injuries are some of the toughest cases. These kids are facing a lifetime of future pain and suffering because somebody wasn't paying attention - somebody was asleep at the switch and to be able to help these kids and give them some sort of stability really makes a difference.

What questions should I ask a personal injury lawyer?
  • How long have they been doing this?
  • Do they specialize in personal injury?
  • Do they specialize in medical malpractice?
  • Have you been to trial before?
  • Have you been able to settle cases without having to go to trial?
