Injuries or deaths which occur at a hospital or as a result of mistakes made by doctors, nurses, surgeons, psychiatrists, hospitals, and other medical care providers are handled uniquely under Alabama law.
There are specific statutes that set forth how these cases must be brought, what evidence is required, and what damages are recoverable. They are unlike any other personal injury or accident claims. Medical malpractice cases are challenging for lawyers in that they require unique experience, specialized expert witnesses, and the financial ability to pursue them. Not many lawyers in Alabama are equipped to handle medical malpractice lawsuits. We can help you.

Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
Like other medical malpractice claims, injuries and deaths which occur at a nursing home, assisted living facility, or other long-term care facility are treated uniquely under Alabama law.
In addition to stringent statutory requirements for pursuing such claims, these facilities are also heavily regulated in Alabama with special regulations prescribing how they are to be managed. Cases involving nursing homes therefore require lawyers familiar with the distinct laws and regulations governing such health care facilities.
