Bradford is dedicated to providing personalized and diligent representation to his clients at all stages of a criminal case; through and including the initial criminal investigation, the arrest itself, bond hearings, preliminary hearings, plea negotiation, and trial.

MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

Even the best medical practitioners make mistakes sometimes. Unfortunately mistakes made by medical providers during the course of treating patients can result in serious injuries and death. In order to prove a medical malpractice case, medical mistakes must rise to the level of a breach of the standard of care in the specific medical discipline involved in treatment. These cases can be highly technical and complex and require expensive expert testimony in order to prove liability/ medical negligence. Common types of medical malpractice include:

Misdiagnosis
Surgical errors
Anesthesia errors
Medication errors
Patient neglect

Due to the complexity of establishing the standard of care and proving a breach of that standard, it is nearly impossible for a lay person to successfully initiate and prosecute a medical malpractice case. Bradford has the experience necessary to assemble the right team of experts and build a successful case of medical malpractice that pinpoints the breach in care, and documents the resulting injury to the patient. Bradford understands how devastating medical injuries can be to patients and their families, and will fight to insure his clients are compensated accordingly.

AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENTS

Auto accidents often result in serious injuries which can require extensive medical treatment and surgeries, physical therapy and rehabilitation. In the present-day technological world in which we live, there has been a notable uptick in automobile accidents due to cellular smart phones, vehicle nav systems, and various other distractions. If you’ve been injured by a distracted or otherwise negligent driver, it is not advisable to attempt to navigate the litigation process while recovering from your injuries. Auto insurance companies mount an aggressive defense of their own negligent drivers with a focus on preserving the insurance company’s bottom line. Insurance companies view unrepresented claimants with an eye towards quick settlement that often fails to account for the true value of the case. A quick settlement is almost never in the injured claimant’s best interest.

When you hire an auto accident lawyer like Bradford, you get an aggressive advocate who brings years of experience defending accident cases for insurance companies. He learned the intricacies of the system from the inside out, and is now dedicated to using that knowledge and experience to assist the injured. Bradford has handled a wide array of auto accident cases; including pedestrian, and bicyclist cases with injuries ranging from soft-tissue bumps and bruises to serious and debilitating traumatic injuries. Bradford can assist you with locating medical providers and navigating through the medical system while compiling and presenting a compelling case to insurance adjusters and defense lawyers.

Bradford works diligently to ensure his clients are compensated fairly for their injuries, as quickly as possible.

MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS

Motocycle accidents are similar to automobile accidents; however, due to the speed and relative vulnerability of motorcycle riders, these accidents often involve a specific set of highly traumatic and debilitating injuries. In an age of increasingly distracted drivers, even the most defensive motorcycle rider can find himself in harms way. Bradford has experience representing riders, and obtaining quality results for his motorcyclist clients, all while assisting them and supporting them throughout their journey back to good health.
