Hospitals, doctors, surgeons, nurses, and other health care providers are expected to provide patients appropriate medical care. However, routinely a health care provider’s treatment falls well below the standard of care required by law. This could be a misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, surgical mistake, medication error, birth injury, or other act or omission. Medical malpractice can often leave victim’s suffering from severe, life-changing injuries that require on-going treatment or result in death. If a medical professional’s action or omission constitutes negligence, the patient has a right to take legal action.
It is important to first speak with an experienced medical malpractice attorney in pursuing your medical malpractice claim. An attorney will help you determine whether or not you have a valid medical malpractice claim, the time period you have to file your claim, request the appropriate medical records, correctly calculate the damages you have suffered, comply with the technical and complex laws covering health care liability, and discuss other important factors with you to help strengthen your medical malpractice claim. The assistance of an experienced medical malpractice attorney can help you understand and handle your medical malpractice claim so that you recover fair and just compensation.
