Holding Medical Professionals Accountable

Seeing a doctor should be the first step toward recovery from an illness or injury. However, many of our clients come to us in worse condition following medical treatment. Although medical malpractice claims are complex and challenging, we have the experience and the resources needed to effectively handle each client's case.

If you believe you have suffered medical malpractice, don't hesitate to call the Law Offices of Edward P. Shaughnessy, in Easton. Pursuing a medical malpractice claim may allow you to recover compensation for medical bills and ongoing expenses associated with the medical negligence.

Armed with more than 25 years of experience, our firm has the skill needed to prepare strong medical malpractice cases. We offer a free initial consultation and take all personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning you pay no attorney fees unless we win*.

Determining The Facts After An Act Of Negligence

Clients frequently consult our experienced founder, Edward P. Shaughnessy, because a doctor's choices have resulted in failure to diagnose a disease, misdiagnosis, or surgical error. These acts of medical negligence may have resulted in the need for increased medical care, larger health care costs and even wrongful death.

Sometimes injuries suffered under a doctor's care are simply unavoidable. Other times, the injuries are a direct result of the physician breaching the most basic standards of care. As your legal representatives, our job is to determine what happened and the extent of the damages you have suffered. We then aid you in pursuing just compensation for all that you and your loved ones have endured.

Aggressive Advocacy On Your Behalf

If a doctor or hospital error has played a part in your medical injury, you can count on us to represent you, no matter how many obstacles need to be overcome.
