Every doctor, regardless of specialty or practice area, must conform to a set of standards known as a duty of care. With these standards in place, we generally trust physicians to act responsibly and offer appropriate treatment to their patients. Most doctors live up to these standards. Given the trust and respect that we bestow upon doctors, it can be devastating to suffer injuries due to medical negligence (or malpractice) committed by a doctor.
If you, or a loved one has been a victim of medical malpractice, whether surgical, prescription-based, failure to diagnose, or otherwise, you may be able to hold your medical practitioner accountable and receive compensation in a court of law. In the traumatic time following a medical malpractice injury, it is strongly advised that you to contact a medical malpractice attorney to immediately discuss your case and determine how to proceed.
Our Approach to Medical Malpractice
The Law Office of Scott J. Koplik takes a customized and highly effective approach to every medical malpractice case. Following a consultation, your attorney will begin by gathering all available information about your specific case, including your complete medical records. In consultation with our highly respected medical (and other) expert witnesses, we build the strongest case possible for you.
Nobody can promise what a judge or jury will decide. However, we do not accept cases unless we believe that we can prevail at trial. This selective, tenacious approach, puts you in the best position to achieve a maximum settlement or confidently prepare your case for trial.

Through firsthand experience, attorney Scott Koplik has gained expertise on a wide range of medical malpractice injuries. We accept many different cases, including:

Obstetrical malpractice, including hysterectomy injuries and fistulas

And much more
If you believe that you or a loved one have been the victim of medical malpractice, you should contact a medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible. Your right to sue may be limited by one or more statutes of limitations.
Earning Financial Compensation
It takes an effective attorney to prove that a doctor has breached his or her duty of care towards a patient. With effective representation, you or your loved one may be entitled to significant financial compensation, including:
Lost past or future wages
Past and future medical expenses including further treatment and physical therapy
Pain and suffering, including emotional trauma, loss of life’s enjoyment and more
For victims of medical malpractice who have passed away, as a direct or indirect result of the incident, additional damages may be available–including loss of companionship or funeral expenses.
Securing these benefits, including further treatment, is time-sensitive. Protecting your rights and taking legal action should be treated with urgency. Regardless of the severity of your medical malpractice case, it is strongly advised that you consult with a medical malpractice attorney.
