MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

When doctors, hospitals, and all other medical or healthcare professionals fails to follow the accepted standards of care in their field of medicine and injure, permanently disable, or kill a patient, they are likely to be held responsible for medical malpractice.

There are many incidents of negligence that can be classified as medical malpractice:

  • Delayed Diagnosis
  • Failure to Diagnose
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Emergency Room Error
  • Medication Error
  • Anesthesia Error
  • Surgical Error
  • Birth Injuries
  • Brain Injuries 
  • Wrongful Death
  • Failure to Request Necessary Tests
  • Failure to Perform Proper Follow-Up Care

Fortunately, the law affords protection to victims of medical malpractice, entitling them to financial compensation for medical care, any lost wages, pain and suffering, and possibly more, if they can prove the doctor or medical care provider acted in a negligent fashion.  However, it can be very difficult for a victim to prove medical negligence.  First, you must prove that a doctor-patient relationship existed.  Second, you must prove that the doctor was in fact negligent.  Third, you must prove that the medical professional's negligent actions caused them injuries.  Finally, they must prove that their injuries led to them incurring damages, like pain, additional medical bills or lost income.  The best way to address an act of medical malpractice and receive compensation under the law is to contact a skilled and experienced personal injury attorney who can help you take appropriate legal action.
