Hospitals, health care providers, and medical professionals are held to high standards of providing a safe and healthy environment and keeping their patients safe from preventable harm. When injuries or illnesses occur as a result of physician or medical personnel negligence, victims have the right to file personal injury claims and medical malpractice lawsuits. A large potential for risk in the medical field causes many professionals and companies to maintain large resources and liability insurance policies in order to attempt to deflect accusations of negligence and prevent over-compensating victims.
Unfortunately, it is reported that nearly 200,000 people are killed each year in the U.S. by medical errors and many more suffer injuries or illnesses that could have been prevented. If you suspect that you or a loved one has been a victim of medical malpractice, then you need legal representation.
Proving Medical Negligence can be addressed during the legal process:
- The legal duty of a health care provider to the care or treatment of a patient
- Whether the provider or medical professional failed to provide acceptable standards of care
- Whether the injury occurred as a direct result of failure or negligence
- Physical, emotional, and/or monetary damages incurred
No matter the nature of your case, our qualified legal team can assess your situation and determine if you are eligible to receive compensation.
