Medical Malpractice

The Bruce Law Firm represents patients and their family members who have been victimized by errors and acts of negligence committed by healthcare providers. Medical malpractice happens when a doctor, nurse, hospital, pharmacy, nursing home, or other professional or facility deviates from the recognized standard of care in the treatment of a patient.

The Journal of the American Medical Association ranks medical negligence as the third leading cause of death in the US — behind only heart disease and cancer. Government and insurance industry sources estimate that up to 200,000 patients die each year from medical errors.

Our lawyers work to achieve a measure of justice for patients injured by careless medical providers—and their family members. Although certain losses, like the death of a loved one, cannot be fully compensated with money, the significant verdicts and settlements our lawyers obtain help our clients put their lives back together.

The Bruce Law Firm has handled medical malpractice cases involving:

  • Misdiagnosis and late diagnosis
  • Negligence affecting pregnancy and childbirth
  • Mistakes in prescribing or administering medication
  • Surgical errors
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect
  • Hospital policy violations
  • Emergency room treatment errors
