When care, or lack thereof, from a medical professional results in damage, injury, harm, or death of the patient, a medical malpractice claim can be explored. Medical negligence is attributed to the physician or medical professional responsible for the patient. Corporations, clinics, hospitals, and managed care facilities can also be held liable.
It’s important to have an experienced attorney by your side to identify proof of negligence. Kathy Brown Law, PLLC represents clients from Charleston, WV, and surrounding areas. Allow us to help you navigate through the medical malpractice legal process and get the justice you deserve.

Timing is everything in an emergency room, and emergency room staffers are often pushed to the limit while dealing with critical problems.

Adequate planning can help reduce a patient’s risk in both basic and complex surgeries. Prior to your surgery, your doctor should inform you of any associated risks, including infections, blood clots, and more. In addition, your surgeon should create a surgical plan to help reduce your risk and prevent errors.
Through every stage of our procedure, your medical team must meet a certain standard of care. If negligence occurred during any stage of your surgical process and you were harmed, you might have grounds for a medical malpractice case.
