Medical Malpractice

When patients seek medical care, they deserve treatment that meets or exceeds the standard of care for the medical profession. Unfortunately, in many cases just the opposite occurs.

Because of human error, as well as systemic problems, there have been reports of increasing numbers of people maimed or killed each year by medical errors, exceeding those hurt in workplace injuries.

Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor or other health care provider deviates from the standard of care. This means that they did not provide the type of care that other members of the profession would have under the same or similar circumstances.

Product Liability Litigation

When a consumer buys or uses a product, whether it is a motor vehicle, work tool, appliance, or pharmaceutical item, they rightfully expect that product to perform safely and efficiently. Unfortunately, that isn't always the case. Use of defective products can result in tragic consequences.

A defective product is one that was either designed with defects or was manufactured improperly. Flawed design or manufacturing defects may result in unsafe products that cause injury to consumers. Unfortunately, there have been countless cases of defectively or dangerously designed consumer products harming and often killing consumers, including children.

In a products liability case, the law may find blame with any or all individuals, corporations or other legal entities involved in placing the product into the stream of commerce. This can include the designer, manufacturer, marketer, supplier and retailer. These individuals may be held liable for any injury the product causes.

For years, Christopher Patrick Ford has represented workers and families who have been seriously injured by defective products, both at home and in the workplace. Among the kinds of cases we've handled are:
