Medical Malpractice Claims

As consumers in a society where expensive medical services are provided by educated, trained professionals and where hospitals and health insurance companies enjoy huge profits, we assume that our health care needs will be met safely and effectively. As thousands of people can attest each year, this is not always the case.

If you or a family member has suffered an injury as a result of negligence or inadequate care on the part of a medical provider or hospital — or if you have lost a loved one — you may be entitled to receive financial damages. At Rothenberg, Rubenstein, Berliner & Shinrod, LLC, our attorneys have been helping injured people seek justice and appropriate compensation for decades.

Case in point: Medical malpractice occurred during surgery, leaving a plaintiff with a perforated ileum, which led to septic shock, necessitated four months of hospitalization and caused significant scarring. The case was settled prior to trial for $1,000,000.

  • Birth injuries

  • Surgical errors in major operations and minor procedures

  • Negligent nursing
  • Wrongful death
  • Dental malpractice, which carries a two-year statute of limitations upon discovery
