Covington Medical Malpractice Lawyers

A Hands-On, Team Approach To Help Medical Malpractice Victims

Our firm prides itself on the exceptional representation we offer to victims of medical malpractice. We understand the seriousness of injuries caused by professionals in whom patients put their trust. We help ensure that the legal system works for our clients to help them collect the full compensation to which they are entitled.

A December 1999 report titled "To Err Is Human: Building a Safer Health System," published by the prestigious Institute of Medicine, estimated that as many as 98,000 people die each year in the United States from medical errors. This number is even more alarming considering that in 2005, less than half this number, approximately 43,000 people, were killed on our national roads and highways in motor vehicle collisions.
