Medical malpractice
We trust healthcare practitioners to make weighty decisions that can affect the outcome of our lives. The law recognizes that doctors are human and can be wrong. However, these allowances have a limit. When a clearly preventable mistake results in a personal injury for a patient, that patient may be entitled to compensation. Medical malpractice cases can be particularly detailed and complicated, and require the service of a knowledgeable attorney. Mr. Leighton is an experienced personal injury attorney in Washington, DC, highly knowledgeable in the various areas of medical mistakes such as

  • Birth injury, including obstetrical mistakes, cerebral palsy and erb’s palsy
  • Anesthesia mistakes
  • Dental malpractice
  • Paralysis
  • Prescription drug errors
  • Cancer misdiagnosis
  • Brain Injury
  • Surgical errors

Premises Liability
Premises injury claims occur when a property owner does not fulfill certain obligations regarding safety and maintenance and another person suffers injury or property damage as a result. For example, if a person slips on a patch of ice on the steps in front of a house, the owner may be liable because he or she did not lay down salt. If you or someone you know has suffered personal injury due to a property owner’s negligence, we encourage you to contact Adam Leighton, Lawyer at Cohen & Cohen, PC.
