You trust your doctor to help make you feel better. But if that care leaves you feeling worse off than before, it might be time to reach out to a Bremerton medical malpractice lawyer for help.
Medical malpractice is a complicated area of the law that demands skilled, aggressive legal assistance. Our team has decades of combined experience in helping victims win fair cash settlements.

Finally, it’s important to understand that most medical malpractice cases involve high damages (for example, significant medical bills). This is because medical malpractice cases are complex, time consuming, and expensive to bring forward. Simply put, you’re more likely to have a case if you ended up in surgery than if you were in pain a few days but recovered on your own.
Our skilled attorneys can help determine if your case meets the above criteria for a medical malpractice case. Call us for a free case evaluation so we can discuss your legal options.
We do not recommend that you file a medical malpractice claim on your own. There are many potential obstacles victims could face, including:

In the event a settlement can’t be reached, our team is prepared to fight for you in court.
We urge you to rely on our decades of experience and success in helping medical malpractice victims.
Our team will work to help discover the true value of your claim. Often, the value is more than medical bills. Consider:
We encourage you to keep a small journal of the ways your injury has impacted your life. You could include events you had to cancel, your mood, your pain level, your ability to sleep, and any doctor visits you had. A journal like this can become evidence that supports your claim – particularly if loved ones can corroborate the details.
The first step is to reach out to a Bremerton medical malpractice lawyer to schedule a free initial case evaluation. Rest assured you owe us nothing unless we win you a settlement.
