Medical Malpractice

Personalized Attention to Your Medical Malpractice Case Is Our Priority

Coppola & Melonakis is a “small” law firm by design, but we have large law firm experience coupled with a desire to offer a more individualized approach to aiding our clients. Our passion is helping people who have been injured and families who have lost a loved one due to the negligence of others.

Our experienced medical malpractice lawyers prefer to give each case our undivided personal attention, and we are proud of our accomplishments.

We Are Hospital Negligence Attorneys Who Fight the Good Fight

People in Colorado seek our help after being harmed through the negligence of doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers. Many personal injury law firms shy away from medical malpractice cases for several reasons:

  • Gathering of evidence and preparation of a compelling case is time-consuming, costly, and hard work.
  • A medical malpractice lawyer must devote the time and attention necessary to learn the essentials about the medical facts of the case, as well as to apply applicable law to those facts.
  • Some personal injury lawyers fear that handling medical malpractice cases will give them a bad reputation in the medical community, making it difficult to work with doctors in the future.

At Coppola & Melonakis, our lawyers understand those concerns, and we are proud to rise to the challenge on behalf of clients who have been wronged when doctors fail to follow established standards of care. We work hard to learn the medicine and consult with appropriate experts in each “med mal” case. Over the years, we have gained knowledge in a number of medical areas, yet we also recognize the need to stay up to speed on medical protocol for every new case.
