Relentless about answers. Passionate about justice.

We hear it from every client, regardless of their case: “I just don’t want this to happen to anyone else.” This is the driving force behind every case we take.

Through perseverance and diligence, partnership with world experts in science and medicine, and a true compassion for all parties involved, we seek justice for our clients.

We find answers. We identify medical mistakes, product defects and negligence. We prevent future injuries or wrongful death. And we help secure resources our clients need to address long-term consequences.

Helping clients move to healing

A medical misstep or product failure marks a betrayal of trust. It can cause an unthinkable injury or devastating crisis with consequences that last a lifetime.

Our medical malpractice lawyers, along with our personal injury and product liability teams, conduct deep investigation into complex situations to identify and uncover the truth and connect cause to consequences, setting the stage for determining damages and restitution. Through this, our clients can put a difficult, frightening and painful time behind them, and move forward with the healing process.

Experts in Medical Malpractice, Product Failure, and Other Negligence

Each case is completely unique. The one thing they all have in common: the need for experienced, diligent focus to identify the roots and outcomes of negligence, defective products or mistakes. This is the exact kind of focus that our passionate, dedicated, medical malpractice lawyers offer.

Birth-Related Injuries

Our medical malpractice lawyers identify the causes and long-term consequences of mother or child birth-related injuries as well as wrongful pregnancy or birth and HIE injury, setting the stage for a successful birth injury lawsuit.


Our medical negligence lawyers assist those who have been deeply affected by negligent acts or omissions. A misdiagnosis or delay in diagnosing a critical disease or condition (such as cancer, heart attack, or other serious conditions) can significantly impact someone’s treatment opportunities and quality of life. Our medical negligence lawyers help connect the dots between mistakes and the injuries they cause, and build strong failure-to-diagnose lawsuits.

Wrongful Death Cases

In the tragic circumstance where medical negligence or errors result in a patient’s death, the family of the wrongfully deceased can be left with crippling medical debt and dramatically altered futures. Our wrongful death lawyers strive to procure fair, comprehensive compensation for beneficiaries.

Defective Products

Defective design or incorrect manufacture of industrial, medical and consumer products and devices can cause devastating injuries, or even death. Our lawyers have successfully challenged the world’s leading manufacturers to obtain justice for our clients.

Surgery and Procedure-Related Errors

A surgeon’s negligent conduct that falls below accepted standards of care can result in serious harm to patients. As lawyers specializing in medical malpractice, we build partnerships with world-renowned experts to help identify errors, prove causation and move to compensation.

Hospital, Nursing Home and Healthcare Facility-Related Errors

Mistakes in care are not always obvious, especially to patients or their families. But through the eyes of our veteran lawyers, the causes of—and responsibility for—mistakes at hospitals or elder care facilities can be clearly identified to support a strong case for our clients.

Medication Errors and Product Cases

As long as humans are providing healthcare, there will be human mistakes. We dive deep into the specifics of each case, from wrongful death to ER medication malpractice to anesthesia malpractice, doing intense investigation to build a legitimate, powerful case for our clients.


Negligence can occur in many settings, from on the roadway to the workplace or at home. Our medical negligence lawyers assist those who have been deeply affected by negligent acts or omissions.


How can I tell if my situation qualifies as medical malpractice?

If you believe that your doctor or healthcare organization didn’t follow the proper procedures, or if you believe that a mistake led to the injury or suffering of a patient, it’s possible that you can make a medical malpractice claim.

How long does it take to settle a medical malpractice case?

No two medical malpractice cases are ever the same, and the length of time depends greatly on the complexity of your situation as well as the willingness of a medical provider or insurance company to resolve your case.

How are lawyers paid for medical malpractice, product liability, and other personal injury cases?

At Ciresi Conlin, we choose to be compensated solely on a contingency basis, meaning that if we take your case, you will not face any financial exposure up front. Clients do not pay us any compensation unless we resolve their case successfully. In this way, our interests are aligned, and we work as hard as we can to secure maximum value for your case.

Can you guarantee a payout for my case?

Because of the wide range of variables that affect every case, there is no simple formula for predicting the success of a claim.

What is the first step I should take?

Although you and your family may be going through an extremely stressful and challenging period in your life, it’s important that you take the time to connect with an experienced team of medical malpractice lawyers to ensure you have help and guidance through a challenging process for months, if not years, ahead.

What is a product liability claim?

Manufacturers are required to carefully design and produce their products and to provide sufficient instructions for the product’s safe use. When they failed to do so, and a person is injured or killed, the law requires the manufacturer to provide justice—compensation—to the victim of the defective product or his or her family.

If the negligence or product failure occurred outside of Minnesota, can Ciresi Conlin still help me?

Ciresi Conlin handles cases throughout the United States, both in the federal court system and in the court of the state where the injury or wrongful death occurred.

Can a person who was hurt at work be compensated?

Many times, a work-related injury or death is the result of a defective product or the negligence of another company or outside person. The law permits a claim to be made for just compensation in those situations.

What is a general personal injury claim?

Injuries and wrongful death can be caused by negligent acts or omissions in virtually any setting: motor vehicle accidents, construction-related or industrial accidents, recreational accidents, or even accidents at home. Ciresi Conlin has the expertise and experience to evaluate virtually any circumstance that resulted in a serious injury or death, and determine if a claim can be made.
