Compassionate yet strong in cases of medical malpractice and negligence.
When you or your loved one has a health issue, you turn to doctors or other healthcare professionals for advice and treatment. You rely upon them to give you full information, advice and appropriate care.
Unfortunately, doctors or health professionals may not always provide the expected level of care and treatment you deserve. Even the most trusted and well-respected doctor or healthcare professional can make a mistake. This is called medical malpractice or medical negligence.
Medical malpractice or medical negligence cases may include:

“The insurance company did everything in their power to discourage me. They dumped enough red tape on me to fill an Olympic size swimming pool, but Barb and her team of professionals cut through all the crap and got to what was really important (Getting me on with my life). I appreciate everything Legate and Associates has done, and will be doing for me in the future. I don’t know where I’d be, or what I would have done without Legate & Associates. Money doesn’t give me back what I lost, but at least I can step into the future without having to worry about it.”M.M.
