Everyone has the right to expect professional, responsible care from health professionals, hospitals, clinics, and drug and medical device manufacturers.

When that standard of care falls short due to negligence or malpractice, the consequences can be devastating.

That is where the attorneys at Richardson Thomas come in.  Our lawyers regularly help victims of medical negligence or defective medical products get the compensation they deserve for unnecessary injuries and death.

Medical claims can come in many shapes and sizes.  Perhaps a pharmacist failed to properly counsel a patient about a prescription, or maybe a doctor misdiagnosed a condition. A lawsuit can be the result of a careless action – making a mistake. Or it can stem from a careless inaction – not ordering adequate testing. A claim also can arise from a defective medical device or medication. A claim can come after a botched surgery or after a surgery that wasn’t necessary to perform.

Medical claims also can be incredibly complex. Our team works closely with medical experts to prepare scientifically valid cases that help victims fight for the justice they deserve.

When it comes to asking for compensation for our clients, we consider immediate needs and expenses in recovering from the damage, and we also consider long-term consequences of devasting injuries. This can include on-going medical expenses as well as compensation for suffering or loss of livelihood.

We often work with other law firms as co-counsel, because other attorneys know they can trust our dedication, experience and track record.

Our team of lawyers represent the victims of medical negligence and defective medical products in a variety of cases including:

  • Medical malpractice
  • Medical devices including transvaginal mesh, hernia mesh, implants, and heating pads
  • Pharmaceutical drugs
  • Pharmacy liability/prescription errors
