Medical Malpractice

Des Moines Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Doctors, nurses, dentists, chiropractors and all medical professionals are highly trained to care for patients. They have spent years in school learning how to keep people safe and healthy and heal those who are sick or injured. They want to do the right thing for their patients and have good intentions, but in certain instances serious mistakes are made that cause catastrophic injury and loss to a trusting patient and his or her family. These cases are rare, but if there is a departure from the standard of care there should be careful investigation into whether negligence has harmed the patient and whether others are at risk.

Medical malpractice can result in a wide variety of injuries, including brain injuries, spinal injuries, loss of limb, paralysis, the spread of cancer, and others. Regardless of the type of injury, attorney Peter Berger will go into each case ready to build a legal strategy that is dedicated to getting you the compensation you need to cover medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other costs.

In many cases a structured settlement annuity can be obtained, which pays out over the client's lifetime, and which has favorable tax consequences. Almost all cases are taken by Mr. Berger on a contingency basis, with a written contract from the start of each case. In those situations, no legal fees are owed by the client unless there is a settlement or favorable jury verdict.
