Medical malpractice is the failure of healthcare professionals to meet the proper standards of care. If a doctor or hospital’s conduct falls below the standard of care and you or a loved one is injured as a result then you have been the victim of Medical Malpractice. The standard of care is a combination of what doctors in the area and around the country are doing, at the minimum, to provide adequate patient care. It is not the best care. If a doctor does not provide care and treatment that complies with the standard of care then he is negligent. If you think that you or your loved one has received less than adequate care from a hospital or doctor please contact us. There is a limited amount of time for you to bring your claim and swift action often helps to preserve evidence.
Some Examples of Medical Malpractice cases are:
- Obstetrical malpractice resulting in birth injury
- Failure to diagnose and treat cancer in a timely manner
- Prescription or pharmacy misfill
- The improper use of anesthesia
- Failure to timely diagnose and treat complaints of abdominal pain
