Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Our Medical Malpractice Attorneys Get Justice for Negligence



Doctors and other healthcare providers attend years of school and engage in extensive training because people rely on them to provide the best care possible. But what happens when they fail? Experienced medical malpractice attorneys will be able to help you determine if you have a case and what steps you should take to obtain justice.

Medical malpractice is any deviation or omission committed by a healthcare provider while rendering medical care to a patient.  That deviation or omission from the accepted standard of care must then cause the patient to sustain an injury.  (The injury can include damage to any part of the body or death) and the injuries sustained must then result in the patient incurring some form of damages.

When health care providers fail to uphold reasonable standards of care for their given profession or medical area, or when they exhibit negligence while treating patients, they can be held liable for the damages patients suffer. These damages can include (but are not limited to) medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

In short, medical malpractice is any mistake made by a doctor or other healthcare provider that could have been avoided had proper measures been taken to prevent it.

Medical malpractice cases are complex and require an experienced attorney who understands both the medicine and the law in order to analyze and pinpoint the necessary links between the negligent act and the actual injury.

While medical malpractice claims may seem simple, they pose a number of legal challenges. Perhaps the largest obstacle in litigating these cases is the fact that all patients accept some risk when the undergo medical procedures or treatment. Although there has been incredible progress in medical science and technology, modern innovations have yet to prevent all potential for human error or to alleviate medical professionals from all liability.

This means that, while risks are unavoidable, there are still occasional departures from established standards of care, regulatory violations, many types of preventable injuries and damages, and many instances of medical negligence for which health care providers can, and must, be held accountable. Medical Malpractice claims are also complicated by the technical medical information involved, which is why our Medical Malpractice Attorneys work closely with medical experts to help you build the strongest possible case.
