Oklahoma – Medical Malpractice
Clark + Mitchell – Personal Injury Attorneys – Oklahoma
Medical malpractice claims can be complex, expensive and time-consuming. There are a number of personal injury firms that will not take medical malpractice claims because of how challenging litigation can be. When you or someone in your family has been injured at the hands of a doctor, nurse, medical professional, or hospital, it is important to remember that you have recourse. Clark & Mitchell P.C. offers the necessary competency, strategy, and skill to effectively challenge corporate defendants, including pharmaceutical companies, insurance carriers, and hospitals in complex medical malpractice litigation.
Clark & Mitchell P.C. is one of the few personal injury trial firms in the state specifically devoted to taking the plaintiff’s side in medical malpractice cases. We handle your case personally and do not broker cases to other firms. Since we work primarily in medical law, we have substantial knowledge of the issues involved in these complex cases. One of our most distinguishing resources is an attorney/nurse on staff with a comprehensive understanding of the practice of medicine and liabilities.
We handle cases involving: Dangerous Drugs, Surgical Errors, Misdiagnosis, Hospital Negligence
Because over 80 percent of medical malpractice cases are won by the hospitals’ and doctors’ insurance companies, it is important to have an experienced attorney on your side to fight for a successful verdict. Some of our recoveries include:
- $1.25 million settlement for emergency room failure
- $1.25 million settlement for maternal death in delivery
- $1.5 million verdict for death of a 9-year-old child with Rocky Mountain spotted fever
- $3.5 million verdict for a brain-damaged infant
- $2.5 million settlement for failure to diagnose cardiac failure after valve surgery
Expert Resources and Cutting-Edge Advocacy in Medical Malpractice
Insurance companies win the majority of medical malpractice cases, but an attorney who dedicates their time almost exclusively to personal injury law can help you fight for the compensation you deserve. At Clark & Mitchell P.C., we offer expert resources and cutting-edge legal advocacy to keep abreast of medical and legal developments. In addition to our legal experience, we have relationships with experts in nearly every area of the medical field to help build your case.
A lawsuit against a hospital or doctor is often a very long ordeal. The plaintiff’s lawyers will put in hundreds of hours. Expenses on medical cases can easily exceed $50,000. At Clark & Mitchell P.C., we work on contingency fee. This means we don’t receive a fee if there is no recovery.
Once we accept a case, we advance the expenses which go to court costs, expert witnesses, court reporters, and films. In those rare occasions when we weren’t successful, our clients do not repay expenses we advanced.
