Professional Negligence in Alaska

Professional Malpractice Attorney in Anchorage

Economic Loss or Personal Injury Due to a Professional's Negligence

If the error or willful conduct of a licensed professional has caused you financial or physical harm, you may have a claim for monetary damages against that individual or their employer. Medical negligence cases are difficult cases because juries are often reluctant to find against most healthcare providers. I have over 30 years of experience and a firm understanding of the law in this area. These cases require mature judgment and a serious investment of time and money.

The Law Office of Gregory J. Grebe represents individuals in Anchorage, Wasilla, Palmer, Kenai, Soldotna, Fairbanks and Alaska's many bush villages. I offer a free initial consultation to determine if I can help. Call me today at 1-800-490-3946.

Legal Malpractice

Lawyers do make mistakes. You may have a case if your lawyer made an error that no reasonable lawyer would have made, and that mistake changed the result of your case. (For example, waiting to file a personal injury claim until after the statute of limitations has expired.) In malpractice litigation, the court or jury must find that you would have won the original case. If I prove negligence, your compensation is the value of the original case, plus attorney fees.

Medical Malpractice

Medical negligence can include surgical errors, significant medication errors, birth injuries or failure to diagnose serious conditions such as heart attacks or cancer. Possible damages include all past and future care, lost earnings, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment (or loss of consortium for a wrongful death).

I was one of the lawyers involved in the first medical negligence jury verdict in Anchorage. But only a few malpractice claims succeed against a doctor, nurse or hospital. These cases should be evaluated by an experienced attorney. Your permanent injury or wrongful death case probably should be worth at least $250,000 or more to cover the up-front expense of documenting the case and finding medical experts to testify about professional negligence. Rarely, a case is clear enough to allow a recovery on a smaller case.

Other Professional Negligence

Nearly any licensed professional can be sued for negligence if they caused a substantial economic loss. Examples include engineers or architects whose design errors led to reconstruction costs or structural collapse, and accountants whose bad advice leads to trouble with the IRS.

Let me determine if you have a basis for a professional negligence claim. I offer a free case evaluation and flexible scheduling. Contact my Anchorage office at 800-490-3946.
