Understanding Medical Malpractice What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional or provider fails to meet widely accepted standards in treating a patient, resulting in injury, complications, or death that would otherwise likely not have occurred. Doctors, nurses, surgeons, dentists, technicians, hospitals, and healthcare systems can all be guilty of medical negligence subject to malpractice liability.

Common Examples

Common Examples

There are a variety of situations that can give rise to valid malpractice claims when substandard medical care directly causes harm:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of a serious illness or condition
  • Surgical errors such as operating on the wrong site
  • Mistakes with medication dosing or prescriptions
  • Poor doctor-patient communications leading to harm
  • Childbirth injuries to mother or infant
  • Preventable infections acquired within healthcare facilities
Proving Liability

Winning a medical malpractice case hinges on definitively establishing:

  • A provider-patient relationship creating a duty of care
  • The standard of care was breached via an act of negligence
  • The breach directly caused new injury or worsened existing condition
  • Damages resulted, from additional medical treatment to pain and suffering

An experienced medical malpractice lawyer will consult with independent subject matter experts to painstakingly investigate liability in your specific situation.

Investigating Hospital & Doctor Negligence

Investigating Hospital & Doctor Negligence

The intricate nuances of healthcare require insightful analysis by medical experts schooled in what constitutes reasonable standards of diagnosis, treatment, medication prescribing, surgical intervention, and care. Our long track record investigating malpractice claims makes us extremely selective in accepting cases, retaining only independent specialists offering air-tight confirmation of subpar medical services resulting in harm.

For example, we ensure a comprehensive review by numerous medical experts in fields related to your injury – a neurologist for birth-related neurological impairment; infectious disease specialist for sepsis arising from contaminated surgical implements. Rigorous expert analysis sets the stage for vigorous legal advocacy toward maximum remuneration for clients.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) How do I know if what happened to me or my loved one constitutes medical malpractice?

Not all undesirable outcomes constitute malpractice. Negligence must be proven by showing the care provided fell below accepted professional standards, directly causing injury or death that otherwise would not have occurred. An experienced medical malpractice lawyer thoroughly investigates by consulting with four or more independent specialists to establish whether reasonable healthcare standards were breached.

Will pursuing a case get the doctor in trouble with the Medical Board?

Our legal team focuses solely on obtaining compensation through civil medical malpractice lawsuits - not initiating professional discipline against a defendant's license. However, some awards do get reported. Rest assured we handle your case as confidentially as legally possible.

What compensation might I recover through a medical negligence claim?

You may recover damages for medical costs, rehabilitation services, lost wages, loss of future earnings, pain and suffering, severe emotional distress, and wrongful death expenses. Experienced lawyers maximize compensation.

Will bringing a malpractice claim impact my family member’s ongoing care?

Under federal regulations, providers cannot discriminate against patients pursuing legal compensation; care must continue unchanged.

How much do you charge to handle medical malpractice cases?

We work on a contingency fee basis, meaning no upfront payments ever for our services. We only collect if your case recovers a settlement or award, deducting reasonable pre-approved expenses and a percentage of the final compensation amount as our fee.
