Facing the Challenges of a Medical Malpractice Claim
When a trusted doctor falls short of the basic standards of medical care, people seeking help end up hurt. While many find it challenging to establish the liability of a physician, the attorneys at Bulman Jones & Cook PLLC are dedicated to overturning every stone and tenaciously representing the residents of Montana and malpractice victims throughout Montana.
We will identify the negligent action and build a fact-based claim if you have been victimized by a doctor’s negligence. Negligence means carelessness. Even good doctors can be careless. If it happens, they should accept responsibility and help with the damage they may have caused or failed to prevent.
In many areas of our personal injury practice, we have faced and overcome hurdles. Medical malpractice cases are no different. We will fight for your rights and strive for the best outcome. Contact us by filling out the online contact form.
Doctors Violating Standards of Care
The first question we pose when meeting with you relates to your doctor violating the standard of care. Would a competent doctor have done or not done the same thing in their situation? Failure to diagnose a deadly disease, surgical errors, prescription medication mistakes, and hospital-acquired infections all can have deadly consequences. Birth injuries that lead to cerebral palsy or death change the lives of all family members involved forever.
We need to demonstrate that your physician or medical provider failed to meet the standard of care that was expected from them.
Building a Fact-Based Medical Malpractice Claim with Experts
At Bulman Jones & Cook PLLC, we team with medical experts to create a fact-based claim. From there, we appear before a Montana medical legal panel comprised of three doctors and three lawyers. They make a non-binding recommendation regarding a possible deviation of care and the resulting problem that occurred. Our job is to show that both occurred and try to convince them of the existence of negligence that caused the injuries complained of.
Whether we negotiate or litigate, your legal team will be at your side until your case is resolved.
Doctors owe their patients a high standard of care. When you go to the hospital to have surgery, you expect the medical professionals who operate on you to live up to that standard. When surgeries are performed negligently, people get hurt. At Bulman Jones & Cook PLLC, we have more than 50 years of combined personal injury experience. In Montana, we have lawyers that will fight to protect your rights when a surgeon violates your trust.
Have you or a loved one been the victim of surgical errors? With diligence and dedication, we will build you a strong claim based on the facts and fight to get you financial compensation for the injuries you suffered in the hospital.

Holding Hospitals Responsible for Malpractice in Montana
Specific protocols are supposed to be followed in the operating room in order to ensure that the correct surgery is performed and that it is performed well. All too often, these protocols are not followed and life-threatening mistakes are made. At Bulman Jones & Cook PLLC, our Montana personal injury attorneys know how to protect your rights and will fight for you in and out of the courtroom.
Even when the head surgeon delegates parts of the operation to other surgeons or health care professionals, the head surgeon can still be held responsible. We will guide you through the medical malpractice process and answer all of your questions along the way.
Montana Medical Legal Panel
Before any claim against a Montana healthcare provider can be filed in court, the complaint must be presented to the Montana medical legal panel in Helena, MT. A committee of three doctors and three lawyers will be appointed to review the medical evidence and opinions we may submit to show that a deviation from the proper medical standard of care caused an injury to our client.
The panel issues its determination about whether a standard of care was violated and whether the violation caused an injury. Neither the patient nor the healthcare provider is bound by the decision. The patient then may file a lawsuit if the case is not settled. Our lawyers are very experienced with the medical-legal panel.
People go to a hospital to be cured of their problems, not add to them. If you caught an infection from being in a hospital, you have the right to financial recovery from those responsible. At Bulman Jones & Cook PLLC, we work for you to make doctors uphold the high standards of the medical profession.
We have more than 50 years of combined legal experience and know what steps to take in order to hold hospitals accountable for the harm they have caused. If you acquired an infection after your visit to the hospital, your options are anything but limited. Call us immediately for a free initial consultation or fill out our online contact form.

Knowledgeable Medical Malpractice Attorneys
Hospital infections can be minor irritations on the skin or serious problems that spread to internal organs. Unsanitary conditions can lead to the loss of limbs, loss of organs, and in the worst-case scenario, the loss of life. Surgical errors can also lead to an increased potential for infection and the possibility of amputation.
Our hospital infection lawyers work with medical experts to help determine the level of negligence involved based on the facts of your situation. We investigate the matter early, in order to get all the critical evidence before it is destroyed or lost. Even doctors can be careless, and when they are, they should accept responsibility.
