"When we learned of Zachary's diagnosis several months after his traumatic birth, we knew that the doctors were responsible. We are very grateful for the settlements we received; due to your expertise Zachary will never go without the equipment, treatments, and therapies that he will require throughout his entire life." - Mitch, Marjorie & Zachary Martin, San Bernardino, CA

Having a leading medical malpractice attorney who is also a licensed medical doctor provides a powerful advantage for Dr. Fagel's clients.

His successful legal background including a strong track record of settling over 700 cases is one of the reasons why Dr. Fagel was selected by the National Law Journal as "The 10 Top Trial Attorneys in the Nation," and why Dr. Fagel was nominated eight times by the Consumer Attorneys Association for their Trial Lawyer of the Year award.

Orange County, which is the third most populated county in California after Los Angeles and San Diego County and the sixth most populated county in the United States, has over 3 million residents and an annual birth rate of over 38,000 babies. Because of its beautiful geography, including miles of beaches and its endless attractions including theme parks such as Disneyland, Orange County has not only attracted millions of residents to the area but many hospitals and doctors to treat them for their medical needs as well. Unfortunately with so many hospitals in the area and so many patients to treat, many preventable cases of medical malpractice do occur each year.

Dr. Fagel has successfully represented his clients in lawsuits throughout the Orange County area including lawsuits against Children's Hospital of Orange County, St. Joseph Hospital, Mission Hospital, Kaiser Foundation Hospital, Los Alamitos Medical Center, University of California Irvine Medical Center, and Western Medical Center.

When you or someone you love has been seriously injured because of medical malpractice, you not only expect compensation for your injuries but answers as well. For example, who was responsible for your injuries or the injuries to your newborn child and how did it happen? If a member of your family died because of medical malpractice, what policies or procedures did the doctors or hospital violate that resulted in their death or what medical mistakes did the doctors and nurses make that should have been prevented? This information helps provide closure for a family who needs answers, and with the added compensation, helps them move forward with their lives. Dr. Fagel is ready to bring these same resources to help you obtain the maximum compensation for your injuries and provide the answers you demand regarding how and why your injuries occurred.

If you or a family member was seriously injured or died as the result of negligence by a doctor, nurse, hospital or medical facility in the Orange County area, you may have a medical malpractice case.
