If you have suffered a serious injury because of the neglect of medical professionals, one of the most daunting tasks can be finding an attorney that you trust and who can help you establish that negligence or abuse occurred. While many attorneys work closely with medical experts, they may simply lack the expertise to truly understand the appropriate standard of care and assess how and why the care you received deviated from that standard. Attorney Gerald Sugarman of The Law Office of Gerald Sugarman, M.D., J.D stands out from other personal injury attorneys because Dr. Sugarman is not only an attorney; he is also a medical doctor.

Dr. Sugarman graduated from George Washington University with a MasterÍs degree in biochemistry, received his medical degree from Chicago Medical School, interned at the Los Angeles County Hospital, completed his residency training in Pediatrics and Pediatric neurology at the ChildrenÍs Hospital in Los Angeles, and served as the director of admissions at the Pomona State Hospital for the mentally retarded. He has served as a medical expert in malpractice cases involving: meningitis, shoulder dystocia, brain injured newborns, birth injuries, cerebral palsy, vaccine injuries, drug and medication errors, pharmacy prescription errors, allergic reactions to medication, overdose of medication, brain tumor cases, neurosurgical negligence, epilepsy (seizure disorders), mental retardation, genetic disorders, and missed or delayed treatment of diseases including cancer.

Dr. Sugarman graduated from the Glendale University School of Law and was licensed to practice in California in 1978. Since that time, he has focused his Alameda County legal practice on helping those who have suffered serious injuries as the result of medical malpractice. A member of the American Trial Lawyers of America and the Birth Trauma Litigation Group, Dr. Sugarman is constantly reviewing developing standards for patient care.
