Areas Of Professional Practice
According to the National Academy of Science, Medical Mistakes kill an estimated 44,000 to 98,000 and injure as many as one million Americans every year.
Were you or a member of your family hurt or injured as a result of Medical Negligence? Do you really know what occurred? You deserve a clear explanation, and if medical malpractice did cause your injury you may be entitled to monetary compensation.
One of the most challenging areas of law is Medical Malpractice. Bringing a successful claim to the insurance company or to a jury, requires lawyers with extensive experience, the financial resources to pay for a thorough investigation, and access to top medical experts.
Some of the types of Medical Malpractice we handle are: Misdiagnosis, or the failure of a doctor to diagnose a treatable condition within a reasonable amount of time, Mistakes made in the hospital or emergency room and Medication errors, among others.
If you believe you have been harmed by a medical professional, we urge you to contact Harper & Harper today to arrange for a free legal consultation.

Being arrested can be a very scary and emotionally upsetting experience. If you or a family member find yourself in that position, you should immediately meet with a lawyer to discuss what your rights are and what you can expect.
Each year hundreds of people across Indiana are injured and killed because of accidents. Injuries may be received because of automobile collisions, defective products, a fall or a work-related accident. Each involves different legal issues.
In many instances, persons who have been injured or the survivors of a fatality victim are left to fend for themselves because they failed to learn their rights. It is important that persons injured in an accident know their rights and how they can safeguard those rights.
If you have been charged with DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) or DUI (Driving Under the Influence) in Porter, La Porte, or Lake Counties, you not only need to take these charges seriously, you need attorneys that have handled hundreds of similar cases over the years.
The Attorneys at Harper and Harper take every DUI case seriously, because DUI convictions can have long lasting consequences for you and your family.
