If you select Pauley Curry, you will get the benefit of the unique experience, knowledge, and expertise that has been obtained from our firm handling medical malpractice cases for decades.

At Pauley Curry we have extensive expertise in complicated litigation involving catastrophic injuries which requires the use of specialized expert witnesses. We have both access to and relationships with the medical world and other experts needed to prove how you were hurt and to explain the nature, extent and impact of your injuries.

Our firm is dedicated to building relationships between you, our lawyers and our staff so that you receive personalized attention while we work tirelessly to pursue your case. Our size allows us the luxury to meet with you personally. Your needs will be met, your questions answered, and you will get the best results possible. By representing defendants through their insurance companies in the past, we have come to understand how the insurance companies think and operate. Because we have defended many of the same types of suits in which we now represent plaintiffs, we know and understand the potential defenses and how to minimize and overcome them.

In cases of serious injury, there are both immediate and far reaching complications to you and your family. The physical pain, rehabilitation and therapy you suffer and endure are grueling. We understand the difficulties your financial loss causes you and your family – lost wages, loss of earning power including the ability to earn in the future, and the cost of medical care not covered by insurance. We understand your psychological struggles in not being able to work or enjoy life as you previously did. Because of our years of extensive experience, we can articulate and explain all of this so that you get the most for your injuries.

If you think you can’t afford to pursue a case, think again. At Pauley Curry, PLLC, we provide free consultations, by phone, in our office, at your home, or wherever else you may need to meet. Our office operates on a contingency fee basis, which means we only make money if you do. We assume all risk by advancing the costs associated with pursuing the case, including filing fees and expert witness fees. If we prevail in your medical malpractice law suit, we will simply recover our costs and a percentage of the compensation. If we are unsuccessful, you owe nothing.

Please be assured that our lawyers and staff are committed to you, your family and your case. An Attorney from Pauley Curry, PLLC can help you with all medical malpractice related injuries. Call our Medical Malpractice Attorneys for a free consultation at 606-420-4478 or 304-342-6000.
