Medical malpractice occurs when the care provided by doctors, nurses or other healthcare professionals falls below an accepted minimal standard of care. Malpractice can be an act or a failure to act, resulting in harm to the patient.
It can happen in the course of a birth, during surgery, or in failing to diagnose conditions that can then lead to cancer, heart attack or stroke. If you have been the victim of medical malpractice, the law provides that you are entitled to be fully compensated for all of your medical expenses, all of your lost wages and all your pain and suffering.
Medical malpractice cases are almost always emotionally exhausting and legally challenging. Charlie has represented dozens of families who have been victimized by medical malpractice, working with them to obtain fair compensation for their loss while treating them with dignity and compassion. It never costs anything for an initial consultation, and you can choose to be represented on a contingency basis, meaning that you do not pay any legal fees unless and until you are fully compensated.
“It took only a moment’s inattention by the surgeon to change our lives forever. Charlie understood us, he understood our needs, and he understood the legal issues around the case. The money we received will never take away the suffering we went through, but it went a long way to helping us heal. Thank you, Charlie!” – J.P., Lyme, NH.
