It is estimated that medical errors kill roughly 200,000 Americans a year. Medical negligence is the third leading cause of death in the United States, right behind heart disease and cancer, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).

Medical malpractice is when a health care provider acts in a way that deviates from the accepted and just standards of practice in the medical community, especially when these acts result in injury, damage or the death of a patient.

I had a very serious industrial injury and I was referred by a family friend to Brooks Cutter. He fought hard for my case and refused to back down to the large corporations we were up against. Brooks and his team were very responsive, and I appreciate how well things were explained to me when they didn’t make sense. As a result of this case, I have the resources I need to move forward with my life. I would certainly recommend Brooks Cutter and his team to my family and friends… Actually, I think I already have.
