Medical malpractice, also called “medical negligence,” is the failure of a health care provider to follow accepted standards of treatment. When medical malpractice results in serious injury or death, a claim or lawsuit may be pursued. The attorneys at LHA have handled malpractice cases in virtually every area of medicine. We are selective in the medical malpractice cases we choose to pursue, which has resulted in favorable settlements or jury verdicts for over 99% of our clients. Some examples of the types of cases we see most frequently are the following:

  • Anesthesia errors
  • Bed sores
  • Birth injuries
