Putting your medical care in the hands of a professional usually means excellent and thorough treatment to make you well again. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case, and you may find yourself dealing with the aftermath of the negligent care of a medical professional. Medical malpractice involves the negligent errors of healthcare providers that result in serious injury or death.
The law in this area can be difficult to navigate. The Washington State Legislature has created a very specific statute that limits the rights of victims. You need an experienced and innovative lawyer who understands the nuances and challenges this statute entails for your case.

In one of the many high-profile Zina Linnik cases, VSSF brought an action against a sex offender treatment provider that resulted in a substantial confidential settlement.
