Committed to providing prompt, high quality legal services.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is defined as professional negligence by act or omission by a health care provider in which the care provided deviated from accepted standards of and caused injury or death to the patient.

As a patient, or as the family member of a patient, we place immense trust in our medical providers. We expect that these highly trained professionals will follow the accepted standards of care. While not every error that occurs is medical negligence, we are trained to analyze your specific situation and we work with medical specialists to identify whether medical negligence occurred. Our professional and friendly staff has knowledge about medical errors that cause harm to patients and their families and can talk with you about your injury or the death of a loved one due to medical error. We promptly answer your questions in common sense language and explain the claim process to ensure you are informed and comfortable before moving ahead on your behalf.

In Montana, most claims for medical negligence must be submitted to the Montana Medical Legal Panel before a complaint for damages can be filed in court. Our office handles medical malpractice claims across Montana from start to finish, including handling claims before the Montana Medical Legal Panel.

If you believe a health care provider made a mistake or neglected to provide the appropriate care which, in turn, caused you or a loved one serious injury, please call our office to learn what choices are available to you.
