A member of the firm since 1993, Rick currently limits his practice to cases involving medical negligence, workers compensation, and catastrophic personal injury.
Rick has successfully handled a number of cases involving medical negligence including the failure to diagnose Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever in an adolescent (resulting in death), the failure to diagnose a pulmonary embolism in an elderly client (resulting in death), the failure to properly resuscitate an expectant mother following an overdose of anesthesia through her epidural (resulting in a persistent vegetative state), the failure to resuscitate a young man following an anesthetic overdose prior to hand surgery (resulting in death), and the failure to adequately diagnose and treat a pregnant mother in pre-term labor (resulting in significant brain injuries and disabilities to the child).
Rick has additionally concluded many workers compensation cases. A number of these cases have involved catastrophic injuries resulting in paraplegia and brain injury and have led to settlements in excess of a million dollars and agreements for the payment of attendant care (weekly checks to family members to care for the injured party).
