Medical Malpractice

Compensation For Medical Malpractice Victims

Doctors, nurses, hospital staff and other medical professionals have a duty to provide their patients with reasonable care. If they fail to live up to these duties and cause injury through their negligence, the victim has the right to seek justice – full, fair and complete compensation for those injuries.

The attorneys at Benjamin & Shapiro, Ltd. will help you pursue justice – the full, fair and complete compensation you are entitled to for your past and future pain and suffering, disfigurement, disability, medical expenses, lost wages and other expenses.

You Need An Experienced Attorney

Medical malpractice cases are not easy cases to win. In addition to the already difficult times we are in where jurors are conditioned to consider lawsuits to be frivolous, there are numerous complex legal and medical issues. Additionally, these cases almost always involve going against large law firms and insurance companies who will seek to limit or deny their own clients’ responsibility for your damages.
With more than 40 years of combined experience, you can be confident in our ability to handle medical malpractice cases.

Types of Medical Malpractice

Our lawyers handle all types of medical malpractice cases. Some of the more common cases involve:

  • Birth injuries

  • Surgical errors
  • Medication errors

Experts: One Step on the Path to Success
