A Doctor-Lawyer Representing Victims Of Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice occurs when a doctor, nurse or another health care professional provides care that is not within the accepted standards of the medical community.  Hospitals and health care institutions also are liable for medical malpractice when they are negligent in not keeping their protocols and procedures within the accepted standards of the medical community.  When doctors, nurses, hospitals, health care facilities and other health care professionals deviate from the accepted standards of care, often, injury occurs.

At The Law Offices Of Owen Pickus, D.O., ESQ Attorneys At Law, we pursue justice on behalf of people who have suffered from medical negligence.  Our firm is led by an attorney who is also a doctor.  With over 35 years of medical experience as a board-certified internal medicine physician specializing in hematology/oncology, Dr. Pickus, Esq., is able to understand the medical field and use his experience to review medical records and hospital protocols and procedures to determine if medical malpractice has occurred.  He then draws upon that knowledge to present strong cases to the judge or jury.

Dr. Pickus has obtained the largest medical malpractice verdict in Maine, nearly $10 million.
