Medical Negligence

We represent patients in claims against medical care givers, including hospitals, individual physicians, nurses, dentists and other care givers for injuries and death resulting from sub-standard care.

Claims of this type involving military and other federal medical care facilities are subject to the Federal Tort Claims Act and are processed in the federal system in accordance with that specific federal statutory procedure. Most other medical malpractice claims are processed in the state court system under Alaska state laws. Our firm handles both types in both systems.

It is again most important to obtain an evaluation of your claim at the very earliest indication that you or your family member has suffered an injury from an error by the care giver due to the strict time limits that apply to these claims. A complete set of medical records is essential for this purpose and often it will take considerable time to obtain an independent medical evaluation of those records in order for our firm to make a decision to accept or decline the case. While not actually required by the law it is very difficult to successfully prosecute a medical malpractice claim unless an independent medical expert can be found willing to testify in support of the case. For this reason our firm normally will decline cases that are not supportable with competent expert testimony. In most cases our firm will obtain the initial independent medical evaluation of the case at no expense to the client.
