What to Look for in a Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice Attorney

The success of a personal injury and medical malpractice case can hinge a lot on the attorney you choose to represent you and your loved ones. The best attorneys understand the need for diligent preparation, an eye for detail, and a commitment to justice that doesn’t waver in the face of complexity and confrontation.

Having an attorney on your side who has access to world-class experts and years of specialized experience is equally important in helping you recover the compensation you deserve.

At Bostwick & Peterson, we are widely recognized for all of those things as well as a proven track record of multi-million dollar record successes in medical malpractice and personal injury cases.

Here are a few ways our firm differs from others:

  • We have won more than $1 billion in settlements and verdicts for our clients over the years in numerous states, including California, Colorado, Hawaii, Oklahoma, and Washington. Since 2018, our firm has twice broken the California record for the largest medical malpractice settlements, including a $14 million result in that year and a $17 million one in 2019. We also won a verdict of $21 million in what was the largest California non-punitive verdict for a single individual.
  • The firm has received numerous awards, honors and recognitions. U.S. News has repeatedly included us on its “Best Lawyers in America” list, and we are members of the invite-only Inner Circle of Advocates, which only includes the nation’s top 100 plaintiff lawyers.
  • Firm founder James S. Bostwick, a nationally certified medical malpractice specialist, has received the Trial Lawyers “Presidential Award of Merit” and is also a member of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, a group limited to the top 500 trial lawyers in the U.S.
  • Erik L. Peterson is recognized among the nation’s top civil litigators. He is a Senior Fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America and a member of The National Trial Lawyers: Top 100 Trial Lawyers.

The attorneys at Bostwick & Peterson are passionate about helping victims and families involved in catastrophic, life-altering events like birth injury, brain injury, stroke injury, car, truck and bike accidents, product injuries and wrongful death. We work tirelessly to help clients recover the compensation they deserve for a financially stable future.

We know that there are countless options when it comes to choosing the right law firm after an accident or injury.
