When a doctor or medical professional has failed you as a result of medical malpractice, it can lead to solemn trust issues.

Can I File a Medical Malpractice Suit?

Before you begin the process of looking for representation, understanding what medical malpractice is will benefit you and help understand how the process works. No matter where you go, a certain standard of care is held to all medical practitioners. If you have been injured, harmed, or suffered damages due to a deviation from this standard, you may have been a victim of medical malpractice.

  • "“I was recently in a very bad motorcycle accident, I was recommended to Barrie from a close friends mother and am very glad I was. Since the day of my call to Barrie she was committed to helping me in every aspect of the process, and any question that me or my entire family had. She got me the first part of my settlement very fast, and when the insurance companies tried to fight the second part she was relentless on getting me what I was needed. Furthermore she was successful on me getting the entire settlement and kept me up to date the entire time the process went on. She is self-less, attentive, easy to communicate with, easy to get in contact with, and was respectfully aggressive to get what I the client needed. I will highly recommend her to anyone that needs a lawyer. I am very grateful for her.”"  -Jesse
