Medical Malpractice

While not every bad patient outcome or medical complication is caused by the negligence or malpractice of a physician, hospital or other medical provider, some bad results are the result of medical malpractice. The attorneys at Hurwitz, Sagarin, Slossberg & Knuff, LLC will investigate your claim, consult with appropriate qualified and credible experts and litigate your case if medical error caused you serious injury and harm. At HSSK, all expenses related to the investigation and litigation of medical malpractice cases are advanced by the firm, and there is no fee or reimbursement of the costs we advance unless and until we obtain you a recovery either by way of settlement or successful judgment after trial.

HSSK attorneys are experienced at handling medical malpractice cases involving a wide range of issues, including birth injuries, hospital and emergency room negligence, surgical errors, nursing home negligence, missed and delayed diagnosis, wrongful death, medication errors and failure to recognize and properly treat infection.
