Altemus & Wagner is extremely selective about the medical malpractice cases we take in order to devote our time and attention to those we do take.
Medical negligence or “malpractice” occurs when a physician or healthcare provider either fails to do something that should have been done or does something that should not have been done which results in injury or death. Doctors and other health-care providers must follow certain standards when caring for patients. While a simple mistake may not be enough to constitute negligence, an injury or death caused by the failure to provide reasonably appropriate or common standards of care or the failure to diagnose a detectable condition may be malpractice.
The firm aggressively investigates and pursues claims for catastrophic injuries and death arising out of:
- Birth Trauma
- Failure to Diagnose Cancer and Other Diseases
- Inappropriate or Negligently Performed Surgery
- Anesthesia Injuries / Death
- Inappropriate or Dangerous Treatment Practices
- Pharmaceutical Injuries and Prescription Drug Errors
- Hospital and HMO Claims.
The lawyers’ experience allows them to help clients determine whether or not malpractice has occurred.

Some attorneys or law firms brag about their settlements or verdicts in an attempt to entice clients. Altemus & Wagner does not do so because every case is unique. More importantly, Altemus & Wagner puts the same quality and aggressiveness into every case, not only the big cases.

Since most of the time injured victims will suffer some form of loss (be it income, physical, emotional, or other), our legal system provides for compensation in these instances. However, the law only provides a limited time within which to pursue your claim, so you should contact us right away. If you wait too long, you will be forever barred from pursuing your claim.
