If the negligence of a health care provider or health care professional causes significant damage, permanent damage, or even death, you may have a malpractice claim and may be able to sue the provider and/or the facility where you or your loved one received care. In general terms, malpractice in the medical field is defined as a medical care provider (doctor, nurse, or other health care professional) providing care in a way that does not meet the accepted standard of care in that medical community.
It is prudent to seek legal advice if you believe that you or a loved one received negligent care. The burden of costs should not be your responsibility and the pain and suffering from such injury heightens an already traumatic event. Such events can place an enormous economic hardship on you and your loved ones. An experienced lawyer can assist in identifying whether you have a claim and what remedies are available for you to pursue.
Some common malpractice incidents include surgical errors, emergency room errors, medication errors, failure to diagnose, failure to refer, failure to monitor patients after surgery, anesthesiology and radiology errors.
It is necessary to work closely with medical experts to evaluate malpractice claims and to provide testimony required for malpractice cases. Having a firm with access to reputable experts in noted fields weighs heavily on potential outcomes. Keep in mind, not all bad outcomes are the result of medical malpractice.
