Medical Malpractice

Accountability and Justice

Walter RuizDoctors, nurses, surgeons, and other medical professionals are held to a high standard due to the specialized care they provide to their patients. We rely on them when we are injured, sick, and at our most vulnerable. Medical negligence, malice, or fraud can breach a patient’s trust and have devastating consequences on their physical and psychological well-being.

A medical malpractice claim can be a courageous first step on the path to recovery if you’ve been injured by a physician or other healthcare practitioner that failed to provide an appropriate level of care. Medical errors happen every day, but when these mistakes cause life-altering damage, you and your family have legal recourse to seek the justice you deserve.

If you decide to pursue a medical malpractice claim, you must be prepared to prove the following:

  • That the doctor or other healthcare provider, or a medical facility failed to treat you according to the appropriate standard of care; and
  • That you suffered injury or harm due to this negligence or failure.

Walter Ruiz will be a powerful ally in your pursuit of accountability and justice by offering compassionate guidance and aggressive advocacy.


Medical malpractice cases can be built based on negligence or malfeasance grounds, with common types including misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, and surgical error. We will prepare the strongest case possible against the at-fault medical provider or facility by reviewing medical documentation, consulting and associating with expert witnesses and subject matter experts, all with the goal of showing a violation of the standard of care, and connecting your injuries to the medical professional’s, or facility’s actions.

You deserve legal representation from an attorney who is invested not only in your medical malpractice case but also in your recovery. Mr. Ruiz sees his clients as more than just parties in a case but as people who deserve care, respect, and justice.
