Medical malpractice cases are among the most difficult cases a lawyer will ever handle. According to a recent study, patients will win only 23% of cases that go to trial in front of a jury. Most patients will never recover a dime. The medical profession protects its own, so you must be prepared.
If you believe you have been injured by the malpractice or negligence of a doctor, hospital, nurse or other health care provider, you need to read my popular, informational book Why Most Victims of Medical Malpractice Never Recover a Dime before hiring an attorney or talking to the insurance company. It's the only book of its kind for victims of medical malpractice in Virginia.

What the insurance company will do to defeat your claim;
