Doctors and hospitals are vested with the cardinal responsibility of preserving life and saving patients from injury; nonetheless medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death in our nation. Research from the Journal of the American Medical Association indicates that medical providers kill some 225,000 people each year. Approximately, 12,000 people die from unnecessary surgery, nearly 20,000 die as a result of other hospital errors, and a staggering 106,000 die from prescription drugs. This, of course, does not count the thousands more who survive these mistakes.

Our firm utilizes the assistance of qualified expert witnesses to lift the “veil of secrecy” following an adverse medical procedure. Always prepared to go to trial when a hospital or physician refuses to acknowledge responsibility, our mission is to discern the true cause of your injury. Fazzano & Tomasiewicz, LLC, has successfully litigated a wide variety of medical malpractice cases, including failed orthopedic procedures, cardiac care, gall bladder surgery cases, preventable sudden death cases, and nursing home death cases. Our firm also represents those whose injuries arise from medical facilities failure to abide by their own protocols.

We have also litigated a case where a man was released from a hospital pre-maturely and nearly burned himself to death.
