A Personal Message from Center Founder John Ferguson

familyMy family has experienced firsthand the dangers of medical errors. When my wife Rebecca gave birth to our fraternal twin sons, she developed a complication that went undetected by the doctors (the boys thankfully were fine). After developing a second, dire complication, Rebecca required a large blood transfusion. Because of poor planning, the hospital had inadequate supplies of blood on hand that night, and Rebecca nearly died.

It was extremely fortunate that Rebecca survived without permanent harm — but many victims of medical error are not so fortunate. If you or a loved one have had a bad medical outcome and are wondering whether you might have a valid claim for substantial compensation, contact the Medical Injury Law Center today to get answers to your questions.

He later withdrew from the partnership and ultimately formed his own firm. Mr. Ferguson has handled hundreds of medical malpractice cases over several decades, at first representing doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers where he learned his craft, and then representing patients and their families, for whom he has recovered many millions of dollars.* He has also handled litigation matters in a wide variety of other areas on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants, including commercial litigation, architect and engineer errors and omissions, construction defect litigation, wage-and-hour class actions, maritime personal injury and cargo damage litigation, and intellectual property disputes. In addition to numerous individuals, Mr. Ferguson has represented Bechtel Corporation (and related subsidiaries), Kaiser Permanente (a large health maintenance organization), Kaiser Aluminum, Kaiser Steel (now Kaiser Ventures), Gensler & Associates, Albert C.
