Understanding Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional deviates from the standard of care, resulting in harm to a patient. This can include misdiagnosis, surgical errors, medication mistakes, and failure to inform the patient of the risks associated with a procedure. The consequences can be life-altering, and it’s our role to ensure that victims are not left to bear the burden alone.

Pursuing a Medical Malpractice Case

The journey to justice in a medical malpractice case involves several key steps. Initially, we offer a free case evaluation to understand the details of your situation. From there, we conduct a thorough investigation, gathering all necessary medical records and evidence. We consult with medical experts to build a strong case, demonstrating how the standard of care was breached and the extent of the damages suffered.

Types of Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice can manifest in various forms, each with its unique challenges. Common types include but are not limited to, surgical errors, where a surgeon may operate on the wrong site or leave instruments inside the patient; medication errors, involving incorrect prescriptions or dosages; and birth injuries, which can have lifelong consequences for both the child and their family.

Legal Aspects of Medical Malpractice

Proving medical negligence is a complex process that requires demonstrating four key elements: a duty of care was owed, the duty was breached, the breach caused an injury, and damages resulted from the injury. Our attorneys are adept at navigating these legal intricacies and are committed to providing the clarity and support our clients need.
