Elite Injury Attorneys’ Network
Every day in Wyoming and throughout the nation, patients trust doctors with their lives. Because healthcare professionals have taken an oath to provide treatment that is safe and ethical, patients believe that they will perform to the best of their ability. Unfortunately, this does not always happen. On occasion, a doctor, nurse, pharmacist or other medical provider acts in a manner that is below the acceptable standard of care. When this substandard care causes a patient harm, it is considered medical malpractice.
If you or someone you love has suffered an injury because of a Wyoming medical professional’s negligence, you deserve to be compensated. An attorney with Elite Injury Attorneys’ Network, LLC will review your case and if it appears to be valid, will attempt to find you a Wyoming medical malpractice attorney, for no additional fee.

- Failure to diagnose a condition or illness
- An anesthesia error or surgical mistake
- Nursing home neglect or abuse
- Negligence during the birthing process
- Failure to treat (or treat in a timely manner)
- A fatal injury that should have been prevented
