What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice occurs when a medical provider breaches the applicable standard of care, causing an injury to the patient. The doctors, surgeons, nurses, hospitals, clinics, pharmacists, dentists or other medical providers may be held responsible for the injuries their negligence or mistakes have caused. Medical mistakes can have devastating effects on a patient and their family, resulting in serious pain, suffering, the need for further medical treatment as well as financial distress from the extensive medical expenses and/or lost wages or earnings.

Do I have a medical malpractice claim?
Determining liability or legal responsibility for a medical mistake, error or negligence can be difficult and usually requires a lengthy investigation. One indication that you have a potential claim is a very unexpected or unusual result that occurs as a result of “routine” procedures where the physician cannot provide a reasonable explanation for the worsened condition of the patient. Qualified medical witnesses must be produced to establish that the victim’s medical provider breached the applicable standard of care. Our experienced and qualified malpractice attorneys can help you determine liability, protect your rights and obtain the compensation you deserve.
