Medical Malpractice

DC Medical Malpractice Lawyer


Understanding Medical Negligence And Malpractice

You’re here because you or someone you love suffered a devastating injury or death.  You may think the injury or death was caused by medical malpractice; a hospital, HMO, doctor, or nurse made a serious mistake in treating your case.

Maybe another doctor, nurse, or friend told you to get a lawyer to “look into it.” Or you just have a gut feeling or intuition that something went wrong; warning signs and symptoms were ignored. You Need Information.  You Need Answers.  Our Dedicated Medical Malpractice Lawyers Will Give You Information.  We’ll Get You Answers.

You need medical malpractice lawyers who are experienced, thorough, and “get it.”

Every day we consult with experts and specialists to identify the cause of medical mistakes. We work to determine why a child suffers from cerebral palsy, why a hospital delayed delivery of a baby with fetal distress, why an HMO did not recognize the signs and symptoms of pulmonary embolism, or how a radiologist failed to communicate test results that showed a life-threatening disease.

We do this so we can get answers for you; so you can make the right decisions for yourself and your family.

If your hospital, HMO, or doctor violated established patient safety rules, the impact on your life and family can be catastrophic. You may have questions like who provides for the family when one of the parents has died?  How do you pay for the medical treatment a paraplegic spouse requires? How do you raise a profoundly disabled child?  What do you do when the child grows older?

Will the health care corporations, professionals, and insurance companies take responsibility for their actions?

    Mr. Kearney and Mr. Donahoe were excellent attorneys. They were very caring toward my son and myself. They always explained everything in detail and kept in touch with us, updating us about the case. Whenever we would call or needed a question answered, Mr. Kearney or his assistant was always there to help. My son and I are very happy and satisfied with the outcome of the case. Mr. Kearney and Mr. Donahoe were the best and I would highly recommend them to other people.
