Malpractice lawyer


At Kevin Etzkorn Law, we understand that patients place a great deal of trust in their healthcare providers.

Our experienced medical malpractice attorneys are dedicated to holding negligent healthcare providers accountable for their actions and seeking justice for our clients. We understand that pursuing a medical malpractice lawsuit can be a complex and emotional process, and we are here to guide you every step of the way.

Our System for Medical Malpractice Cases

Kevin Etzkorn spent the first 10 years of his career defending medical providers. He learned the ins and outs of the modern healthcare system, including various ways patients are neglected and harmed because of profits being prioritized before safety. Our firm has the experience and resources necessary to investigate and prosecute your claim by doing the following:

  • Preliminarily reviewing the merits of your case. 
  • Assessing the financial “feasibility” of pursuing a case. We have to evaluate whether the case is one that could end in a manner where you the client are satisfied (i.e., enough could be recovered so that after attorney fees and expenses, there is an acceptable amount of money going to the client). Our extensive experience allows us to get a good idea of financial “feasibility” very early, often in the initial consult.
  • Dealing with medical providers to access medical records and other relevant evidence to support a case. 
  • Locating and hiring qualified, respected medical experts to evaluate your case and to offer the opinions that the law requires us to have in order to pursue a case.
  • Meeting with experts and educating ourselves on the liability issues.
  • Meeting with experts to work on damage calculations. 
  • Filing the case in court with proper support and in a timely fashion. The statute of limitations on medical malpractice cases can be very short and can often be more difficult to decipher than what people think.
  • Preparing clients for depositions.
  • Deposing healthcare providers and corporate representatives.
  • Trying the case.

  • Confidential settlement with dentist for wrongful extraction of 2 permanent teeth.
  • A medical malpractice case settled in the fourth week of a lengthy trial. The suit involved claims of paralysis due to a delayed diagnosis and treatment of a spinal infection.

  • A physical therapist was sued for malpractice. Kevin and another lawyer defended the therapist and a hospital for several years. The case went to trial, where Kevin served a crucial role handling damage expert witnesses. The case ended in a defense verdict.
