Any person receiving medical care in some way is at risk of being harmed by medical malpractice. At Leemon + Royer, PLLC, we represent clients injured by hospital and doctor negligence, including:

  • Medication errors
  • Errors resulting from understaffing

A medical mistake, no matter who is responsible, can have devastating effects on all lives affected. Some injuries can be corrected with proper care, but many turn into more serious conditions that result in wrongful death. Our attorneys know how heartbreaking a medical injury can be. Through compassionate and committed representation, we seek optimal results on behalf of clients injured in a hospital or as a result of a doctor's mistake.
