In the medical profession, it is expected that medical health professionals adhere to a certain standard of care. When a medical health professional fails to uphold this expected standard of care, patients can be severely injured as a result of his or her negligence.
At the Law Offices of G. Oliver Koppell & Associates, our skillful attorneys possess over 30 years of experience representing victims of medical malpractice and their families. We are dedicated to fighting for compensation for your pain and suffering.

Representative Cases of the Law Offices of G. Oliver Koppell
The Law Offices of G. Oliver Koppell has represented a number of victims of medical malpractice in cases which resulted in fair settlements. For example, one of their clients suffered a stroke shortly after being examined by his internist. Upon determining that his carotid artery was almost entirely blocked, medical experts concluded that the blockage would have been discovered had the appropriate tests been performed and the stroke likely been avoided. The case was settled prior to trial and resulted in a substantial six figure settlement. In addition, G. Oliver Koppell & Associates has successfully represented a large number of clients who were injured while undergoing a LASIK vision correction procedure and recovered substantial damages. They recently represented a woman burned on her side during the course of her back surgery and received a favorable settlement.
