Medical Malpractice

If you have been injured due to the negligence of a medical practitioner (doctor, hospital, nurse, etc,) you need to contact the Law Office of Lance D. Youd. Our team of qualified personal injury litigation professionals have the experience and resources to successfully prosecute Medical Malpractice claims.

Medical Malpractice cases are very complex, expensive to pursue, have a high risk of no recovery and often involve an “emotional” element due to the client’s personal involvement with the medical professional. These types of cases are also vigorously defended by insurance companies since, under the terms of most policies, the medical provider must approve of any settlement. Doctors and medical providers are frequently hesitant to agree to settlements due to the potential negative effects such a settlement would have on their reputation and medical practice. Additionally, insurance companies are well aware that jurors tend to trust medical professionals and tend to see them as unlikely to have acted negligently, giving medical professionals and their insurance companies a distinct advantage in these cases.
