Medical Malpractice: What you Need to Know

Alice Collopy and Michael Carlucci together represent a total of over sixty years of experience in the field of Medical Malpractice.

The Medical Malpractice Bar is a relatively small bar as a skilled practitioner must be both a zealous advocate and a person knowledgeable in various areas of medicine. Medical malpractice includes the following components: 

  • A violation of the standard of care
  • An injury that was caused by the negligence
  • The injury resulted in significant damages

For a Malpractice action to be sustainable, all three of the above elements must exist.
