Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is negligence by a healthcare provider (physician, nurse, hospital, etc.) that causes harm to the patient. It can arise in the context of a surgical procedure, a failure to diagnose, a wrongful prescription, an anesthesia mishap, or any other number of scenarios involving medical treatment.

Legal Malpractice

When a lawyer makes a negligent mistake while representing a client, and the client is harmed as a result, the lawyer is guilty of legal malpractice. As with other cases of professional liability, legal malpractice cases can be complicated and difficult to evaluate or prove. Nevertheless, Wallace Wason is ready, willing and able to help those injured clients.
