In the field of medical malpractice there are many unfortunate incidents that can befall patients. From a delayed diagnosis to hospital mistakes, and even catastrophic personal injury, the need for a seasoned medical malpractice attorney cannot be overstated. For the same reasons that you would want quality work done for you in any other setting, seeking out an experienced medical malpractice lawyer is an important and essential aspect of starting your claim with the focus and attention that it needs.

For over three decades, attorney Richard M. Shapiro has been defending the rights of individuals, children and families through medical malpractice suits. Within that time, Richard has cultivated himself into a formidable adversary in the field of medical negligence.

Understanding the Medical Community

Raised in a family of highly respected medical professionals, Richard has spent his entire life around the health care community. At the start of his career, Richard worked as a research assistant for his rather, Dr. Robert Shapiro, at one of Yale University’s primary teaching hospitals.

As Richard transitioned to law, he found his calling by focusing on his roots within the healthcare community. He specifically sought to help those who suffered brain injury, paralysis and blindness due to medical malpractice.

Medical malpractice attorney Richard M. Shapiro is also one of the few nationwide attorneys who can effectively represent victims of baby blindness caused by retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). ROP occurs when doctors fail to screen, monitor and provide adequate treatment for this curable condition.

Proven Success from Knowledge and Experience

Richard graduated with a B.A. from the University of South Florida and received his J.D. from the Southwestern University School of Law. He currently sits on the Board of Governors for the American Association for Justice, and he also spent time in that role for the Association of Trial Lawyers of America.
