Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is responsible for hundreds of thousands of injuries and deaths to patients every year across the country.

At Block O'Toole & Murphy, our attorneys have recovered millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for our clients. We know and study the applicable medical issues. We understand how the other side thinks because several trial attorneys on our team once worked for major malpractice defense firms in Manhattan.
