Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Holding Professionals Accountable
You put a high degree of trust in your doctors, nurses and hospitals. When a medical professional breaks that trust, the results can be tragic. You may be left with a permanent injury. Some cases can even result in death. In these situations, you need to talk to an experienced medical malpractice lawyer. That is where we come in.
At Cook & Tolley, LLP, we will listen to your story, examine the rules of medicine, prove your case and fight for the best possible outcome. With decades of knowledge and experience, we are here to advocate for you.
We Want To Hear Your Story
One of the most common errors we see in medical professionals is that they do not listen to you. We hope to remedy that. When handling your medical malpractice case, we will listen to your perspective and advise you using our knowledge and experience. After all, it is your life. It is your story. We want to hear it.
If a medical professional or nursing home caretaker has been negligent, you probably feel as though your trust was violated. We know that, and we take seriously your willingness to trust us.
Experience You Can Depend On
A medical malpractice lawyer has to be fluent in two languages – law and medicine. Having handled medical malpractice cases since the 1970s, we know both of these languages well. We are not intimidated by the science, and we know how to get everything the law has to offer. We have the skills needed to pursue all types of medical malpractice cases including:
- Incorrect diagnosis
- Surgical errors
- Injuries during labor and delivery
- Failure to diagnose
- Early and unjust discharge
- Improper testing or misread results
Our special experience and skills in medical malpractice cases have made us a resource to other lawyers. We are proud to partner with them and fight for clients who have been wronged by caretakers.
