Pharmaceutical, Healthcare & Medical Malpractice

We pursue justice—and results—for medical cases.

Any type of medical litigation—birth injuries, nursing home neglect, medical errors, medication mistakes, misdiagnoses—can be devastating to you and your family, resulting not only in unrelenting suffering, but also the possibility of permanent disability, and even death.


The trial attorneys at Walters Renwick Richards Skeens & Vaughan, P.C. are experienced in medical malpractice lawsuits, recovering substantial sums in pharmaceutical, healthcare and medical malpractice litigation.


With a nurse on staff and thousands of hours spent on discovery, in negotiations, and in the courtroom, our law firm has the resources to carefully consider the often complicated legal, medical, and insurance issues in any medical injury case.


You deserve counsel with compassion.

Medical injuries often result from careless action or inaction by a doctor, nurse, hospital, pharmacist, or other licensed medical professional or health care provider and can yield permanent disability, disfigurement, or even death.


While no amount of money will ever compensate you for the harm and loss you’ve endured, we believe that you should not have to pay for someone else’s medical negligence.  You should be compensated for medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering.


When it comes to litigating medical injury cases, our attorneys are approachable and compassionate throughout this life-changing ordeal.  We have the experience, resources, and skills to prosecute even the most complicated medical malpractice and medical negligence cases, including extensive experience dealing with insurance companies and bringing suits against them when necessary.


If necessary, we won’t hesitate to take a case to trial.

Time consuming and expensive, most medical injury suits—some 90 percent—are settled out of court. Defense attorneys count on this and do their best to minimize the damages their clients will have to pay out for lawsuits. This is why it is so critical that victims of medical injuries hire trial attorneys who have experience in litigating medical cases in court.


Defense lawyers know that the experienced attorneys at WRRSV will not hesitate to take a case to trial, and it shows in the results we’ve achieved for our clients.


We are invested in you.

Often, individuals with medical, pharmaceutical and healthcare claims cannot afford to pay for legal services up-front.  WRRSV accepts these cases on a contingency fee basis, which means we get paid only if you do as a result of a settlement or a judgment in your favor.


Medical, Pharmaceutical & Healthcare Litigation Cases

We are proud of the results we have achieved for our clients in the areas of pharmaceutical and medical liability cases.


Medical Malpractice

Malpractice occurs when a doctor, nurse, pharmacist, or other healthcare provider does not abide by the standard of care required for members of his or her profession.


A misdiagnosis by a negligent or unscrupulous physician, an improperly performed surgical procedure, and a medical error resulting in permanent pain and suffering are just a few examples of medical malpractice actions the attorneys at WRRSV have successfully resolved for our clients.


Birth Injuries

When a doctor fails to properly diagnose and treat prenatal issues with what are often relatively simple procedures, the resulting birth injuries can be devastating both for the parents and the child who has to live with the harm, often for the rest of his or her life—if the child survives.

WRRSV has successfully litigated birth cases involving medical negligence.


Nursing Home Negligence

Elder abuse occurs far too frequently, often in nursing homes that families entrusted with a loved one’s care.  Nursing home negligence comes in many forms, resulting in physical injuries ranging from bruising or bedsores to death, as well as emotional injuries.   Unfortunately, many cases of nursing home neglect go unreported, allowing other senior citizens to be abused or neglected when they are at their most vulnerable.  A lawsuit can achieve justice for your loved one and incite changes to help prevent someone else from being harmed in the future.


Pharmaceutical Litigation

Pharmaceutical litigation involves dangerous prescription drugs and medical devices that cause devastating injuries.  Each year, thousands of people get sick or die as a result of defective drugs.  These cases are often extremely complex and require experienced trial attorneys, such as those at WRRSV, to successfully litigate.
