Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is a growing concern in this country. A landmark study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2003 said the problem should be considered a national epidemic and estimated that as many as 98,000 people a year were killed by preventable medical error – about three times more deaths than are caused by traffic accidents each year in the United States.

Quality Medical Care is your Legal Right

Medical malpractice results when a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional fails to provide an adequate standard of care, or is otherwise negligent in providing patient care. An attorney who is representing someone in a medical malpractice claim must be prepared to expend the financial and legal resources necessary to thoroughly and aggressively investigate the circumstances of a case. Medical malpractice cases must be prepared for trial against the medical corporations and insurance companies responsible for the negligence, and the attorneys who protect them. At the Law Offices of Coughlin, Rainboth, Murphy and Lown, LLC,, we represent clients in a wide-range of medical malpractice claims, including:

  • Failure to Diagnose
  • Wrong Diagnosis
  • Surgical Error
  • Surgical Negligence
  • Surgical Complications

  • Dangerous Pharmaceuticals
  • Failure to Treat
  • Insurance Bad Faith
  • Insurance/Refusal to Treat
