At the Law Offices of David L. Hood, we believe it is our duty to hold doctors, nurses, hospitals and others in the medical industry accountable when their actions result in serious harm. We represent people who have suffered serious injuries and health complications due to various types of medical malpractice, including:
- Surgical errors

- Emergency room malpractice
- Nursing home malpractice
- Other medical negligence
We (along with co-counsel) have years of experience handling complex medical malpractice claims. So if you’ve been hurt because a medical professional failed to uphold their obligation to deliver high-quality care, we’re here to listen to your story and, if we believe we can help you, fight to get you the justice and compensation you deserve.
What Is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice occurs when healthcare providers deviate from the accepted guidelines and codes of conduct for their field and engage in negligent or reckless behavior. However, just because you received a bad outcome after medical treatment doesn’t mean the doctor or nurse committed malpractice. If your healthcare providers did the best they could for you and followed reasonable standards of care, then a bad result may be simply bad luck — not malpractice.
On the other hand, if a doctor or nurse deviated from established standards, failed to provide quality care and treatment, and you suffered injuries as a result, then you may have a valid medical malpractice claim against your healthcare provider and their insurer.
Why Hire a Medical Malpractice Attorney?
Medical malpractice lawsuits make up one of the most complex areas of personal injury law, and very few attorneys will handle these cases because of the time, expenses, and complications involved. Successfully pursuing a medical malpractice claim requires access to expert medical resources and an in-depth understanding of medical terminology and practice, and it also involves gathering and organizing an enormous amount of paperwork from doctor’s offices and hospitals.
When you choose the Law Offices of David L. Hood (along with co-counsel) to handle your medical malpractice claim, we’ll put our years of experience handling these complex cases to work for you immediately. We’ll perform a deep analysis of your case and work with co-counsel and a team of experts to assess your current and future needs — physically, mentally and financially — with the objective of obtaining the maximum possible compensation for your injuries.
