Medical Malpractice/Negligence

Medical Malpractice

Juneau, Boll, Stacy & Ucherek, PLLC attorneys represent those who have suffered from serious injury or death as a result of medical malpractice, also called medical negligence. These types of malpractice cases are quite complex, and are governed by special laws designed to make it very difficult for patients or their families to make any type of recovery against a health care provider. As a result, our lawyers undertake a thorough evaluation of each potential claim and are very selective in the cases that we elect to prosecute. Several Juneau, Boll, Stacy & Ucherek, PLLC lawyers have had specialized medical and scientific education, and we bring to bear years of experience in analyzing and litigating complex medical issues. The firm also utilizes the services of several experienced nurse-paralegals, who assist us in carefully reviewing the medical records and pertinent medical literature. Typically, the clients that we represent have suffered severe and debilitating permanent injuries or the death of a family member.
