Medical malpractice means a hospital or doctor violates a patient safety rule. A patient is seriously hurt or killed because of a preventable medical mistake.
An employer ignores a safety regulation, a construction worker is hurt on the job.
A driver chooses to violate a Rule of the Road, and causes a serious injury to someone else.
Medical malpractice, work injuries and accidents affect all of us. Violating safety rules threatens any one of us who may be a patient, a worker or a driver. Everyone in the community is at risk when safety rules are violated and people are put in needless danger.
You're here because you and your family have been harmed.
You need information you can trust, people you can trust and legal advice you can trust.
Are we the right law firm for you?
We can't tell you that yet. We need to get to know you and your family. What is important to you? Are you worried about getting the right medical treatment for your injuries? Are you worried about paying for medical treatment you will need in the future? Does your family worry about paying the bills now? Are you concerned about who will take care of your disabled son when he grows up?
These are just a few of the kinds of things we talk to people about every day, working to solve these problems for real people and families in the D.C. area.
If this is your first time hearing about us, you need to know more about us as well. We understand that.
So please order one of our books, guides or reports on medical malpractice, resources for special needs and disabled children, workers compensation and serious accidents. There is absolutely no obligation or cost to you to get any of these resources if you live or work in the D.C. area. We even pay the shipping and postage.
Why do we publish books, guides and reports based on decades of experience working for people and families and then give them away for free?
Well, we believe people should have the information they need to make the best decisions for their situation and their family, whether its how to get started with a case, when to talk to an insurance company, how to choose a lawyer, or any other problem you now have to deal with.
That's our basic philosophy here at Donahoe Kearney, LLP.
You see, as lawyers, we try to help both individual people and the community as a whole. Since founding our law firm, we've dedicated our law practice to representing children, patients, working people and families in Washington D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia. Our cases involve preventable medical errors, work injuries, and serious car accidents that hurt or kill people and we hold hospitals, doctors, insurance companies and reckless drivers accountable - that's all we do. That's how we help.
Every day we're working to solve problems for people after a serious injury - just like the ones you're dealing with now.
By the way, we don't pass cases on to a lawyer fresh out of law school, like some of those law firms with all those TV commercials. The people we are privileged to work with deserve to have their case and their cause handled by experienced medical malpractice, personal injury and workers compensation lawyers, certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy.
